GLASGOW -- Patricia Bezzoubenko watched the Maple Leaf go up and wiped a tear from her eye. It was a remarkable moment for the rhythmic gymnast who has lived most of her life in Russia but was overjoyed to win gold for Canada on Friday. "Gosh, so proud of my country and for my coaches and my parents," she said with a shy smile. The 17-year-old captured her second gold medal of the Commonwealth Games, winning the individual all-around title a day after she led Canada to a victory in the team event. Later Friday, swimmer Katerine Savard made it a double-gold day for Canada by winning the womens 100-metre butterfly in a Commonwealth Games record time of 57.40 seconds. Canada is fifth in the overall medal standings after two days of competition with nine (four gold, one silver, four bronze). England and Australia have 32 medals apiece, followed by host Scotland (15) and India (10). More gold could be coming for Canada as Bezzoubenko is poised to climb the podium several more times when she competes in the four individual events -- hoop, ball, clubs, ribbon -- on Saturday. She could potentially win all four. "I will try," she said. Bezzoubenko scored 59.175 points to claim gold, while Francesca Jones of Wales was second with 57.350 and teammate Laura Halford won the bronze with 56.225. Maria Kitkarska of Montreal was eighth. Canada has four gold medals at the Games. Swimmer Ryan Cochrane won the mens 400-metre freestyle race on Thursday. Bezzoubenko was born in Vancouver but her parents returned with her to Moscow when she was just four. When Bezzoubenko was 13, Russias national team coach placed a call to Canadian coach Svetlana Joukova -- who is Russian-born -- suggesting she take a look at the young gymnast with dual citizenship. Now Bezzoubenko, who lists her hometown as Thornhill, Ont., trains with Russias top gymnasts in Moscow, a privilege that was facilitated by Joukova, and that costs her parents about $2,000 a month. The family lives in a tiny rented apartment there. Its a partnership thats paying off for the sport in Canada. "Yes, the Russians are the best in the world , so shes being exposed to the best in the world, you cant really ask for more than that," said Jean-Paul Caron, a consultant with Gymnastics Canada and its former president and CEO. "And she can come back and share that with the others." The gymnasts have been training together for the past three or so weeks, and Kitkarska said shes been watching Bezzoubenko train and perform with a keen eye. "Shes very young, but shes training very hard and she has goals and Im sure shell achieve them because shes an amazing gymnast and an amazing performer and I really love her routines. All of them," said the 18-year-old. "I love her." Bezzoubenkos programs come with much higher degrees of difficulty, so even if she drops an apparatus -- which she did with the hoop on Friday -- she still has the potential to win. "Shes taking risks," Caron said. "A lot more difficulty, a lot more movement of the apparatus, a lot more difficulty spinning with the apparatus in the air, also the flexibility that she obviously has." Glasgow represents Bezzoubenkos first major Games experience, so its a crucial stepping stone to the 2016 Rio Olympics. "This is very important, its like first step, she feels like its a mini Olympic Games," Joukova said. "Shes really going to fight for Rio so for her this is amazing experience. Its very important for her to feel that everybody cares about her, everybody loves her, and everybody is behind her, to support her and give her more power. This will stay strong in her mind." Canada has had a long tradition of success in the sport at the Commonwealth Games, but theres been a gap since Alexandra Orlando swept all six gold medals eight years ago in Melbourne, Australia. Joukova, who also coached Orlando, said shed love to see Bezzoubenko repeat that sweep. Shell have to clean up her hoop routine however. Bezzoubenko, who won the Canadian junior title three times and the national senior title the past two years, was fifth after the hoop, but was first in the ball, clubs and ribbon to win the gold. "I didnt do good with the hoop. I think I just was not good concentration, but Ill try to make the other ones good," she said. Overall, it was a strong day for the young athlete coming on the heels of a late night after Thursdays gold in the team event. "Im very happy that Patricia did these results, shes been working very, very hard," Joukova said. "We finished very late (Thursday), arrived at the village around midnight, maybe not enough recovery. But she has to survive, she has to go, she has to feel the pressure and she has to fight. "Im very happy for her first Commonwealth Games." Kitkarska and Annabelle Kovacs of Vancouver were the other two members of the victorious team. Kitkarska was thrilled with the response from back home. "Social networks went crazy, Facebook and Instagram, people were so happy for us, everybody was just Im so proud of you guys. It was amazing support," she said. Her only minor disappointment was that few people were still awake Thursday night to welcome the gold medallists home to the village. "It was empty, but some people saw our medal, they were cheering for us," Kitkarska said. Savard, from Pont-Rouge, Que., added Canadas second gold in the pool when she outraced Englands Siobhan OConnor and Australias Emma McKeon. Elsewhere, Dorothy Ludwig of Langley,B.C, won bronze in the womens 10-metre air pistol event. Ludwig finished with a score of 177.2 points, behind Singapores Shun Xie Teo and Indias Malaika Goel. Alix Renaud-Roy of St-Roch-des-Aulnaies, Que., won a bronze medal in the womens 70-kilogram judo event. Renaud-Roy defeated Australias Catherine Arscott by ippon in her bronze-medal match. "Im happy. I didnt know what to expect," Renaud-Roy said. "I fought against some tough girls. This is the first time judo has been included in 12 years and I feel lucky to be a part of it." Englands Megan Fletcher, who beat Renaud-Roy in the quarter-finals, went on to win gold. Moira de Villiers of New Zealand won silver and Scotlands Sally Conway won the second bronze. Jonah Burt of Whitby, Ont., won bronze in the mens 81-kg judo event, beating Robert Nicola of Cyprus in his bronze-medal match. Englands Owen Livesey, who beat Burt in the semifinals, won gold. Tom Reed of England took silver and Boas Munyonga of Zambia claimed the other bronze. Jason Taylor Jersey .

Third-place Madrid fell behind and settled for a 2-2 draw earlier at Osasuna in a match both sides finished with 10 men, and Barcelona didnt let the chance escape. Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, again turned to Neymar after his hat trick against Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday to convert a penalty on the half-hour mark and restore the lead in the 68th after Villarreal levelled.Norman, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - The historic Battle of Bedlam is on tap for Saturday afternoon at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, as the 18th- ranked Oklahoma Sooners play host to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the Big 12 Conference regular-season finale. At just 5-6 overall (3-5 Big 12), Oklahoma State is in danger of missing out on bowl season for the first time since 2005. After an excellent 5-1 start to the season, the Cowboys have dropped five straight games, most recently falling at nationally-ranked Baylor on Nov. 22, 49-28. Despite his teams struggles, coach Mike Gundy remains optimistic about his teams progress. Weve had a number of young players who have continued to improve, Gundy said. Unfortunately, we probably played out best game weve played in six weeks last night against what could have very well been the best team on our schedule this year. Oklahoma had sky-high expectations coming into the season as the No. 4 team in the country, but it has fallen well short of its lofty goals by dropping out of the Big 12 race with three losses this season to all three teams ahead of it in the standings - TCU (37-33), Kansas State (31-30) and Baylor (48-14). Since their most recent setback the Sooners have righted the ship with two straight wins to get reintroduced to the polls, most recently downing Kansas at home on Nov. 22, 44-7. (Oklahoma State is) one of the teams that are better than the record indicates, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. They always do a good job with balance, run and pass. Gundys teams are always that way. Its been a one-sided all-time series, with Oklahoma holding to a 83-18-7 advantage, including a 39-9-2 showing in Norman. Oklahoma State doesnt fit in very well in the high-scoring Big 12, as it ranks in the bottom half of the league in terms of both scoring (26.5 ppg) and yardage (369.7 ypg). Daxx Garman (.549 completions, 2,041 yards, 12 TDs, 12 INTs) missed the Baylor game with a concussion and is questionable to return on Saturday. In Garmans absence the last time out, Mason Rudolph had an uneven performance, throwing for 281 yards and two touchdowns but on just 13-of-25 passing with a pair of interceptions. The Cowboys have run more rushing plays this season (431) than passing (339), but they have only picked up 3.5 yards per carry for 137.5 ypg. Desmond Roland (579 yards, eight TDs) and Tyreek Hill (496 yards, TD) earn the most work.dddddddddddd David Glidden (39 receptions, 549 yards, two TDs) and Brandon Sheperd (27 yards, 483 yards, two TDs) anchor a modest receiving corps. The Cowboys defense has not done a good job picking up the slack for an underachieving offense, as they allow 31.7 ppg and 438.5 ypg. Emmanuel Ogbah is one of the best pass rushers in the league with 16.5 TFL and 11.0 sacks, while Josh Furman (12.0 TFL, 6.0 sacks) has found some success opposite him. Jordan Sterns and Ryan Simmons are tied for the team lead in tackles with 85. Ramon Richards has picked off three passes. The Sooners possess a potent offense, as they rack up 39.3 ppg and 485.6 ypg, and the unit is riding high after a record-setting performance by its freshman tailback the last time out. Just a week after Wisconsins Melvin Gordon set a single-game FBS rushing record, Semaje Perine topped it with a historic performance of his own against Kansas by running for 427 yards and five touchdowns. The guy is just so exceptional in everything that he does, Stoops said. We were thinking about resting him, and then someone said he only needs 35 more yards, and you know, thats just too close not to do it, and there was too much time left in the game. Perines emergence late in the season has left him with 1,428 yards and 19 touchdowns on 214 carries (6.7 ypc). Perine and the running game were leaned on heavily in the Kansas win with quarterback Trevor Knight (2,197 passing yards, 340 rushing yards, 19 TDs, nine INTs) out with a concussion. Even with a bye week in between, Knight will not be ready to play on Saturday, leaving another start for Cody Thomas, whos completed just 20-of-49 passes this season for 222 yards, a touchdown and four picks, although his rushing numbers (149 yards, TD) have been stellar. Thomas presence under center has hindered the production of the receivers, especially Sterling Shepard (59 receptions, 957 yards, five TDs), whos bidding for an All-Conference selection at years end. The Sooners defense has not lived up to the expectations of a Stoops-led unit, but they have nonetheless played admirably this season in allowing only 23.5 ppg while forcing 18 turnovers. Zack Sanchez has a large say in the turnover battle with five interceptions. Dominique Alexander is the leading tackler with 93 stops and Eric Striker generates a strong pass rush with 13.5 TFL and 7.0 sacks.
