ABU DHABI---Rory McIlroy celebrated his
two wins of 2013 in Sydney---a victory in
the Australian Open and engagement to ten-
nis star Caroline Wozniacki. Now he returns
to golf in the place where his season first
began to unravel.
McIlroy, as much as any other player, is
eager for a new start.
"I m not going to sit here and say that all
the stuff going on off the golf course wasn t
a distraction and say that it didn t affect me,"
McIlroy said yesterday at the Abu Dhabi
HSBC Golf Championship in United Arab
Emirates. "Of course it did. You re thinking
of other things when you really shouldn t
He was under severe scrutiny for changing
all his equipment at once under a lucrative
deal with Nike. The first time played on the
weekend was three months into the year at
a tournament that had no cut. He walked
off one course out of frustration. And he
didn t win until beating Adam Scott on the
final hole of the Australian Open.
The upside for McIlroy?
If he s going to have a year where most of
the news is bad, better to get it out of the
way when he s 24.
McIlroy was No. 1 in the world when he
played Abu Dhabi last year, the start of the
European Tour s swing through the Persian
Gulf. Now he s No. 7, making him the third-
ranked player in Abu Dhabi behind Henrik
Stenson (No. 3) and Phil Mickelson (No. 5).
Mickelson is playing Abu Dhabi for the
first time, and he showed up mostly excited
about his new driver from Callaway. Mick-
elson struggled late last year to find the right
driver, and now believes he has one that could
lead to the best year of his life.
McIlroy already can claim a remarkable
year based on the first day of the year. That s
when he was on a boat in the Sydney Harbor,
dropped to a knee and proposed to Wozniacki,
his girlfriend of more than two years. Oddly,
that was one of the distractions a year ago.
Irish papers had them splitting up at least
The 24-year-old from Northern Ireland
approached Wozniacki s parents to ask their
permission to marry her.
"I don t think there can be a bigger decision
you have to make than asking someone to
marry you," he said. "If anything, it will only
help to have that stability and known every-
thing in that regard in my life is set." (AP)

PRAGUE---Usain Bolt will compete again at the
Golden Spike in Ostrava on June 17.
Organisers say the Jamaican great has yet to decide
whether to run the 100 or 200 metres.
Bolt previously said his goal for this year was to
break his own 200 world record of 19.19 seconds.
Bolt said, "Ostrava is a fast track when the weather
is good. I look forward to good weather and good
performances in 2014."
The six-time Olympic champion will race for the
seventh time at the meet, which is part of the IAAF
World Challenge series. (AP)

KINGSTON---Former 100-metre world record
holder Asafa Powell has told a Jamaican panel that
he did not inform anti-doping officials about most
of the supplements he was taking because the
products were new and he couldn t remember their
The 31-year-old sprinter testified yesterday before
a disciplinary panel of the Jamaica Anti-Doping
Over two days of hearings, at least, Powell and
his attorneys will try to explain why he tested positive
for the banned stimulant oxilofrone.
Powell s former teammate, Sherone Simpson,
tested positive for the same stimulant at the sprinting
powerhouse s national trials in June. Powell, Simpson
and their agent have blamed a newly-hired trainer
who provided the sprinters with supplements.
Powell has pointed to a range of new nutritional
supplements given to him by Canadian physical
therapist Chris Xuereb, with whom he had been
working for two months prior to the national cham-
pionships last year.
Simpson, who also received supplements from
Xuereb, also tested positive for Oxilofrine, with sev-
eral tests showing that the stimulant was present
in one of those supplements, Epiphany D1.
Simpson s hearing has been adjourned until Feb-
ruary 4 and 5 after two sessions January 7 and 8.

Farah ran the first half of the 2013 race to assess
the course and opposition in preparation for his full
marathon debut at this year s race on April 13.
"I am expecting it to be one of my toughest races
and a real learning experience," said the 30-year-old
