RIO DE JANEIRO -- Gabriele Rossetti made a golden addition to the familys medal collection.The Mustache stole the show, however.Rossetti was perfect while capturing gold in mens skeet, 24 years after his father took bronze in the same event. But it was mustachioed independent athlete Abdullah Al-Rashidi earned bronze and the fans hearts Saturday at the Rio de Janeiro Games.I am happy. I dont know why they help me, but thank you, Al-Rashidi said.First, Rossettis story.The 21-year-old Italian prodigy with deep-rooted skeet genes was the favorite heading into Rio, and he lived up to expectations -- after surviving a shoot-off to get into the finals.Needing to make up ground heading into the final day, Rossetti didnt miss a shot: 25 straight targets in the second qualifying stage, 12 more in the four-person shoot-off.He hit all 16 semifinal targets and matched that against Swedens Marcus Svensson in the gold medal match. Rossetti earned the gold when Svensson missed his final shot, giving the Italian a brighter medal than the bronze his father, Bruno, earned at the 1992 Barcelona Games.I didnt think about my fathers medal before the competition, but now I have added to the family medal collection, Rossetti said.Now, Al-Rashidi.The 52-year-old, who trains falcons when hes not shooting, has a long shooting history.Al-Rashidis Olympic debut came at the 1996 Atlanta Games and Rio was his sixth time on sports biggest stage. A three-time world champion, he had never earned an Olympic medal, though; Rio was his first final.Al-Rashidi was unable to compete for his country after Kuwaits national Olympic committee was suspended by the IOC for government interference. He and the other Kuwaiti athletes who qualified -- double trap gold medalist Fehaid Al-Deehani among them -- were allowed to compete as an independent team under the IOC flag.Al-Rashidi tied as the top qualifier in Rio and became an instant fan favorite once the finals begin.The capacity crowd, most of it Brazilian, latched on to the underdog in the Arsenal jersey -- he liked the way it looked and felt -- and cheered wildly when he was introduced and with every target he shattered.Al-Rashidi played up to the adulation, waving his arms and pumping his fists to their cheers during introductions, spurring the fans even more.Al-Rashidi ended the semifinals in a three-way tie with Denmarks Jesper Hansen and Stefan Nilsson, forcing a shoot-off for a spot in the bronze medal match. Al-Rashidi shot last in the threesome and the crowd knew he had a chance to move on after Hansen and Nilsson each missed one, screaming and waving flags before the Kuwaitis turn.Playing the showman again, he raised his gun in the air and flashed a thumbs up as the cheers continued. An official at Al-Rashidis station tried to urge the Kuwaiti shooter to take his turn, but he shrugged and pointed at the crowd as if to say, What am I supposed to do?He hit both shots, setting off another round of cheers and a shot at the bronze against Ukraines Mikola Milchev.Al-Rashidi was perfect in the bronze medal match.Al-Rashidi raised his arms in the air, dropped to his knees and kissed the ground. He rose and threw his hat in the air as the crowd chanted in Portuguese: Ole, ole, ole, Mustache!We like his mustache, so we start to chant, one Brazilian fan said.The man with the mustache -- he actually trimmed it recently -- soaked in the adulation, again raising his arms after receiving his bronze medal as another chant about his facial hair rang out across the Olympic Shooting Centre.I am Brazilian, Al-Rashidi said. I am from Brazil. . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. .

Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. . The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope. . PAUL, Minn.Juan Mata says Manchester United are finding it easier to express themselves having gained confidence from four straight wins. Uniteds narrow 1-0 win over Watford on Wednesday marked only the second time this season they have won four in a row in all competitions, leaving them level on points with fourth-place Manchester City, who have a game in hand.Mata is the only United player to play in every Premier League game this season, and while he admits the campaign has been tough, the Spaniard is enjoying the current winning period. Mata scores Manchester Uniteds match-winning goal in the 83rd minute against Watford Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports he said: Its a good moment for us, a nice two or three weeks, winning games and enjoying our football, and making our fans proud.Since the game against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup, this victory gave us our confidence back. We won a massive game against Arsenal, and we showed character, intensity, and then in the last game it was tough. Thats what confidence means for me and any player I think. When you are winning and when you are having good results it is in a way easier to play your football, and thats what were doing right now.The players and manager Louis van Gaal have come in for criticism this season having crashed out of the Champions League and losing their grip on the top four. Marcus Rashford is one of several young players to make their debut under Louis van Gaal in recent weeks But Mata, who moved to United in January 2014 under David Moyes, says the criticism is part and parcel of playing for such a big club.Theres always that possibility when youre playing for a club like Manchester United, you have to win every game, and when you dont win one or two games it is a big problem, he said. How high can Man Utd finish? As Manchester United hit some form, we look at how high in the Premier League they can finish. You have to deal with it and you have to face it as a professional footballer and just try to focus on what you have to do.[Top four] is where I think Manchester United should always be. And now we have two ways to be there, one is through the Premier League and the other is through the Europa League, where we are goiing through stages and facing a big club like Liverpool.dddddddddddd Mata says it is testament to Van Gaal that the youngsters have performed Well try until the end of the season to get this club where it deserves to be and that is in the Champions League. Obviously we need to win almost every game to do that until the end of the season.Much has been made of the influx of young players Van Gaal has introduced in recent weeks due to injuries to senior players, with Marcus Rashford in particular proving a success with four goals in his first two games.And Mata, who captained United on Wednesday and was the most senior player in the starting eleven at 27, says it is testament to the clubs academy and Van Gaal himself that the more youthful players are holding their own. Van Gaal speaks ahead of the Super Sunday clash against West Bromwich Albion I think it speaks very well for the philosophy of the manager and for the academy of the club. The manager believes in them, he showed with Ajax and Bayern Munich that he is not afraid to put young people in the first eleven.I was the oldest the other day at 27 years old. If youd told me 15 years ago in Spain that I was going to be captain of Manchester United, I would say it is almost impossible. I felt very proud and very happy.Watch the full exclusive interview with Juan Mata on Soccer Saturday from midday Also See: LVG wants trophies over fourth Sky Live: West Brom v Man Utd How high can Man Utd finish?
