Prominent anti-doping campaigner Jared Tallent reckons the walks at the Rio Olympics will be the cleanest in decades.Tallent will arrive in Rio as the defending 50km champion, having belatedly been presented with the gold from the London Games a couple of months ago after Russian Sergey Kirdyapkin was disqualified for doping.With the exception of US-based long jumper Darya Klishina, the Russians have been barred from the track and field competition in Rio, a suspension which covers a host of walkers who have medalled in major events.Another prominent walking absentee is Italian Alex Schwazer, the 50km champ from the 2008 Beijing Games, who was banned for a second doping offence shortly after relegating Tallent to second spot at the race walking World Cup in Rome in May.A sore hamstring has prompted Tallent to withdraw from the 20km race in Rio and focus all his attention on his favoured 50km event on August 19, where he expects his most serious challengers to be world record holder Yohann Diniz from France and Slovakias Matej Toth.It is going to be the cleanest Olympics in a long time, probably going back decades because unfortunately the Russians were always suspected of doping and have been doping and they have been there for a long time, the 31-year-old Tallent said on Friday.They have been the main culprits in our sport.It will be a good day for the event, for the athletes ... a lot of the top guys will think they have got a chance for a medal whereas in the past when you had the three Russians there you always thought it was going to be pretty tough to get a medal.Tallent said he was not overly surprised by the findings of the McLaren Report - commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency - which revealed widespread, state-sponsored doping in Russia of athletes in a host of Olympic sports.Having won silver in the 50km and bronze in the 20km eight years ago in Beijing and gold in the 50km at the 2012 London Games, Tallent will become the first Australian track and field athletes to medal in three separate Olympics if he can claim a podium finish in the longer event in Rio.I have won a medal at every major championships since 2010 so I want to keep that ball rolling, he said.

(STATS) -- Potential changes in how the FCS playoff field is selected may decrease the number of rematches this year.But everybody will probably wish for a rematch between top-ranked North Dakota State and No. 8 Eastern Washington after the five-time reigning FCS champion Bison won a 50-44 overtime classic over the Eagles at the Fargodome on Saturday.NDSU safety Tre Dempsey intercepted Eastern Washington quarterback Gage Gubrud on the second play of overtime to set up Lance Dunns 25-yard touchdown run around the left end on the Bisons first play of their possession.Thats a great team that we just played, NDSU coach Chris Klieman said. Im so proud of our guys for staying the course. We knew it was going to be a back-and-forth game. And ultimately we got the stop we needed on defense -- what a great play by Tre -- and then I think we finally wore em down with the power play.NDSU (2-0) has won both of its home games in overtime after having never previously gone to the extra time at the Fargodome since the NCAA instituted overtime in 1996. The win also was the Bisons 44th straight at home against a non-conference opponent.The Missouri Valley Conference power was seeking a little revenge for the only previous meeting between the two teams -- Eastern Washingtons 38-31 OT win in the 2010 FCS playoff quarterfinals. That is the only loss in the Bisons FCS playoff history, and after EWU went on to win the FCS title that season, they have won the last five championships.The rematch six years later was worth the wait. Eastern Washington (1-1) played the second half and overtime without injured All-America wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who left with a right shoulder sprain after catching two first-half touchdowns. They gave him 61 TDs for his career, setting the Division I record.But Gubrud kept pressure on NDSUs young secondary, turning to wide receivers Stu Stiles and Kendrick Bourne as he threw for 450 yards and four touchdowns.The visitors from the Big Sky Conference trailed by double digits four times -- 21-7, 28-17, 35-24 and 41-31 -- and never led until the freshman Tamarick Pierce plowed in from 1 yard out for a 44-41 advantage with 4:32 left.The Bison responded with a 15-play, 71-yard scoring drive, which Cam Pedersen capped with a 28-yard, game-tying field goal with 42 seconds remaining.Eastern Washington had a chance to win in regulation, but Jordan Dascalo missed badly on a 49-yard field goal with six seconds remaining.Anytime you just play against great competition and against great players, it helps you as you go further in your season, EWU coach Beau Baldwin said. Thats especially true with our non-conference schedule heading into our conference schedule, which is always tough. We can take a lot from this, and we will.The two teams racked up 1,093 yards of offense (EWU 556; NDSU 537). Gubrud added 49 yards and a touchdown on the ground while Stiles (eight receptions, 169 yards, one touchdown) and Bourne (eight receptions, 133 yards) were his favorite targets. NDSU quarterback Easton Stick, now 10-0 as a starter, passed for a career-high 257 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 60 yards and a score, while Dunn had 14 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns.I was really pleased with Lance and how hard he ran the football, Klieman said, how he hit the holes, playing with a lot of confidence, and it showed on that last run.All-America linebacker Nick DeLuca, who suffered a right shoulder separation in the season opener against Charleston Southern, returned to the NDSU lineup to post a team-high 14 tackles and 40-yard interception return for a touchdown.The schedules stay tough for both teams next Saturday.
