RIO DE JANEIRO - The decision to put down grass on the contested 2016 Olympic golf course amid continued legal wrangling could prove to be a costly mistake, a Rio de Janeiro public prosecutor warned on Wednesday. Deion Sanders Jersey .The public prosecutors office is taking on the city government and the golf course developer in a lawsuit that contends environmental rules were breached in building the course, which had been billed as one of the highlights of the Rio Games.Marcus Leal told The Associated Press that the two sides are in a 30-day negotiation period aimed at resolving their differences. But if they fail to reach an agreement, a judge would then rule on the matter. Should the judge end up siding with the public prosecutors office, it could mean that the grass thats currently being laid might have to be ripped out, Leal said.The end result could be a large financial loss (for the developer), Leal said. Should our demands be approved, we will obviously require the restoration of the environment. Meaning what? More investments for the developer in removing the non-native vegetation — the grass. If he already invested a fortune in putting down the grass, hes going to have to pay another to remove it.Leal said he hoped it wouldnt come to that, adding that he believed a deal was possible. But he placed the onus for any possible agreement squarely on the city and the developer, Fiori Emprendimentos.Golf will be back at the Olympics after a 112-year absence, but the legal wrangling over the course has taken the gloss off the sports return.The course has been plagued by delays dating back almost five years. Much of the controversy arises because the course is being built in a nature reserve, situated amid some of the most expensive real estate in suburban Rio; an area known as Barra da Tijuca.In entering into any dialogue, we know that the possibility of a deal depends on yielding on one point or another, Leal said. Our problem is finding a point on which to yield. We are already at the outer limit of what we consider our margin of manoeuvr in this matter. I think that a deal, which I consider possible, will depend much more on the efforts of the city and of Fiori.Leal and his team have asked the developer to move the course to allow for a wildlife corridor 400 metres (400-yards) wide that would link the two sides of the nature reserve. The city and the developers contend such changes are impossible and instead offered to move three of the holes and replace the native vegetation in other areas along the edges of the course.Leal said both sides were carrying out technical studies to determine whether such a proposal would go far enough to preserve the areas native fauna.Leal acknowledged how sensitive the case was, particularly given the time constraints.An Olympic test event is slated to be held late in 2015 or early 2016. Any further delays on course construction could imperil the test event and again raise questions about Rios preparations.It will also underscore the fact that the city already has two courses, one of which has hosted major professional events. Many have suggested the new course has little to do with golf and more to do with real estate speculation.I think its not an easy matter to decide, Leal said.___AP Sports Writer Stephen Wade in Rio de Janeiro contributed to this report.

Solomon Elimimian did not make the trip with the team after suffering what appeared to be a right leg injury in the teams regular season finale against the Calgary Stampeders. . Top-seeded Djokovic, who is making only his second appearance this year after reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over 54th-ranked Istomin of Uzbekistan. "It wasnt as easy as the scoreline indicates," said Djokovic, who has won in Dubai on four occasions.LONDON - Alexis Sanchez rescued Arsenal again by scoring in the 89th minute Wednesday to secure a 1-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League.Sanchez slotted into an empty net after Aaron Ramsey squared the ball across the goal, finally breaking down a Southampton side which had been kept in the game by a series of good saves by Fraser Forster.It was the Chileans ninth league goal of the season and kept Arsenal in sixth place, three points behind third-place Southampton. It was Southamptons second straight loss after a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City, denting the surprise teams aspirations of a top-four finish.We had to dig deep, and we played against a good team, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. We could see in the last 20 minutes that they started to suffer a little bit physically and were able to create openings.Arsenal had struggled to create chances until Olivier Giroud came on midway through the second half, and Forster made two great one-handed saves to deny the France striker and Danny Welbeck as the hosts pushed for a winner.Sanchez had been kept in check up until then, despite alternating between playing on both the left and right wing as well as up front, as the hosts tried to find an answer to Southamptons discciplined defence. Mike Person Jersey. .Ronald Koemans team, which eliminated Arsenal from the League Cup with a 2-1 win at the Emirates in September, seemed content to sit back and focus on counterattacks. The visitors had the best chance of the first half when Graziano Pelle played a neat one-two with Steven Davis but skied his volley from close range well over the bar.The second half saw even fewer chances until Giroud provided the needed spark when he came on for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and forced a good stop from Forster with a fierce volley from a tight angle in the 69th minute.Forster then made a spectacular one-handed save to deny Welbeck just a minute later after the forward was teed up by a back-heel flick from Giroud. And the goalkeeper used his other hand to make a flailing stop from Girouds close-range header in the 88th.Arsenal kept pushing forward, and Giroud appealed in vain for a handball in the area before the ball fell to Ramsey on the right. The Welsh midfielders low ball found Sanchez, who was free to slot in one of his easiest finishes of what has been an impressive debut season for the Gunners.We didnt have our usual fluency in the game, Wenger said. (Girouds) physical presence made a difference.
