Greg Rutherford

Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford has pulled out of next weekend’s Anniversary Games in London because of injury.

The 26-year-old has not competed since pulling his right hamstring at the Diamond League meet in Paris on 6 July.

But he said he still hoped to be fit for next month’s World Championships in Moscow, and has been given more time – until 30 July – to recover.

Rutherford said: “I’m working as hard as I can.”

The Englishman was not named in the GB team announced this week for the Worlds, which start on 10 August.

British Athletics performance director Neil Black, who has said the Olympic champion does not have to compete prior to Moscow in order to prove his fitness, will pick between Rutherford and Chris Tomlinson.

The Anniversary Games is a three-day meeting being held at London’s Olympic Stadium between 26-28 July. It marks a year since the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Rutherford had been hoping to compete alongside British team-mates Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill, who is also struggling with an ankle injury, on the second day.

The trio all claimed gold medals within an hour of each other on 4 August, which became known as ‘Super Saturday’, in one of the most memorable moments of the Games.

PARIS (Reuters) – Watch and learn – that was the directive Nairo Quintana received when he was included in his Movistar team’sTour de France roster.

The diminutive, swarthy-faced Colombian climber did more than just that on his Tour debut, surpassing expectations with a brilliant three-week display to secure second place overall.

Quintana, 23, reached the Champs Elysees in Paris having won a stage and claimed both white and polka-dot jerseys for the best young rider and the best climber.

On Saturday, he won the 20th stage at the top of Semnoz after a final 11-km ascent – nothing intimidating for a rider who would descend 16 kilometers every day to go to school on a 20-kilo mountain bike.

“And I had to come back every evening,” he says with a smile.

 He caught the eye of Movistar manager Eusebio Unzue when, aged 20, he won the Tour de l’Avenir – the most prestigious young riders’ race.

Unzue was looking for Colombian riders for his Spain-based team.

“Finding a Colombian rider who climbs well is easy,” said Unzue, referring to the ‘Beetles’, the Colombian climbers of the 1980s.

“But finding one who climbs well and who is also a good time-trialist is more rare.”

Quintana, however, is not just a physically talented rider. He is also a clever one.

“The other thing that struck me is his character,” said Unzue.

“He’s got a lot of self-confidence and he analyses a race very well. When you listen to him debrief his day, you understand right away that he is not just a fast rider.”

Quintana showed during the Tour that he is a fast learner.

 Starting the race with the task of helping team leader Alejandro Valverde secure a podium finish, the Colombian found himself thrust into the role of leader after the Spaniard lost considerable time on a flat stage following a mechanical problem.

“Everybody in the team believed in me. Everyone helped me, especially psychologically, to achieve this. At 23, I was not prepared for that,” he said on Saturday, sobbing between sentences.

“When they asked me if I was up for it (after Valverde’s hopes were dashed), I said ‘yes, sure, I’m ready to be team leader but

Most people live a hectic lifestyle, rushing to and from work, taking care of a family, and balancing errands with some semblance of a social life. Somewhere in the middle of all this chaos you need to find time to eat. Since most people are so busy focusing on other aspects of our lives, the food they eat is usually chosen because of its convenience, not its healthfulness. I suggest that in order to live a healthier, happier life we need to place more emphasis on choosing better food, and there is one surefire way to ensure that we get a healthy meal, no matter how busy our day: a personal chef.

Personal chefs are individuals you hire to create personalized meals for you and your family. These meals can be shoehorned into a diet you are currently participating in or simply be created with your health in mind. Regardless of why you hire a personal chef, the benefits are numerous. Included here are a few of the biggest benefits that come from hiring your own personal chef in Boston.

The first benefit you will see when you hire your own personal chef is a health advantage. You will no longer need to rely on fast food to get you through the day; you can look forward to your meals knowing that they have been prepared by hand to meet your specific dietary needs. A personal chef is there to create food based on your ideals, which means health can, and should, be tantamount.

The second benefit you will see when you hire one of these professionals is that you will actually have time to complete more in your day because you are not constantly stopping to prepare your meals. The fact that they are being prepared for you saves you at least two hours per day; meaning those two hours can be spent running errands or spending time with your family.

The third benefit that comes from hiring your very own chef is purely psychological: you will know that your food is already prepared so you will
