TORONTO - Ghislaine Landrys last foray for Canada was a marvellous overtime try against France that earned third place at the Dubai Rugby Sevens.Landrys seventh try in six games at the early December event was a sweeping run from inside her own 22. She beat one French defender and then simply outran the rest for a 10-5 win.But ask Landry about Dubai and the 26-year-old from Toronto focuses on the 29-7 semifinal loss to Australia that denied Canada a trip to the final at the first stop of this seasons womens sevens series.To lose that game and to lose it that bad was a massive disappointment, she said in a recent interview. We put in so much work over the last four months, all kind of leading into getting into that final game. Yeah, it was rough.It was especially disappointing because the Canadian women had spent three weeks training Down Under ahead of Dubai and had beaten the Australians 17-12 to open a three-game series. The Australian women bounced back to win the next two 17-12 and 17-15.Weve beaten Australia. We know we can, said the charismatic back, who is tied for the series scoring lead with 45 points after Dubai.There is more to play for this season than ever before. The top four teams at the end of the campaign qualify automatically for the 12-team field at the 2016 Olympics where rugby sevens will make its debut.That should be well within the Canadian womens grasp.Canada finished third overall last season for the second straight year as New Zealand defended its title and Australia finished second.The Canadian women came close to beating New Zealand in Brazil in February only to lose 24-21 on a last-second score in the semifinal. And they were beaten 29-12 by the Black Ferns in the final of the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow.But the Canadians are not content with the status quo.We want to win a tournament. We want to win more than one tournament, said Landry, whose team made the final in Atlanta in February but lost 36-0 to New Zealand. But for now its to get into that final ... so for us Day 2 Game 2, which is the semifinal, is massive.Weve finished third so many times that Im starting to hate that number, she said with a laugh.Would 2014-15 be a disappointment if Canada did not win an event? Absolutely, said Landry.Were not playing to finish third and were not going to the Olympics to finish third. Were going to win because we believe that we can.Landry, who did everything from gymnastics to skiing as a kid, decided rugby would be her sport at 10 after watching her sister play at high school. She started playing herself in Grade 9.I was fast so they stuck me on the wing, she recalled. They just said catch the ball and run.She progressed to the Ontario under-17 and under-19 teams as well as the Canadian under-19 team before heading to St. Francis Xavier University, falling in love with the East Coast while visiting her sister at Dalhousie.Landry, who played fullback and fly half, was the CIS rookie of the year in 2006 — when St F-X won the national title — and player of the year in 2007 and 08.St F-X has become a womens rugby power, adding titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014 with fellow Canadian star Magali Harvey following Landry at the school.Landry had some exposure to the Canadian sevens squad at university, going on two trips her first year, and was a reserve on the 15-player team ahead of the 2010 World Cup.She had hoped to go to the 2014 World Cup and went on tour a year ago, starting the first game before pulling her hip flexor prior to the second game.Landry had been seen a possible World Cup fly half/fullback but eventually pulled back to focus on sevens after a subsequent ankle issue, fearful that injuries could put her on the sevens shelf as well.It was a tough decision. But playing sevens and 15s rugby was taking its toll.I needed a mental break. It was frustrating getting hurt. And if I played at World Cup, there was literally no time to kind of rest and recharge and go in mentally (into sevens) in a good space. The five-foot-four 143-pound Landry has escaped injury in recent months. But her calendar remains full leading up to the Olympics.I can pretty much tell you where Ill be every day up until then, to be honest, she said. And almost what Im doing every day. Everything is planned and scheduled.Canadian coach John Tait calls Landry a cerebral player who is one of the most skilled on the world circuit.She can kick and pass and makes pretty good decisions with the ball, which is why shes one of the leaders of the group, he said.Landry also makes other players better, drawing defenders to help open up the way for her teammates.Shes really unselfish, said Tait.Landry is one of 21 centralized players who push themselves to the limit in Victoria.There is a team breakfast every morning followed by speed, weight and skills sessions on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are conditioning days. Sundays, and the occasional Thursday, are a day off.They are also on the pitch five or six days a week.Theres highs and lows, she said. Its not all flowers and rainbows out there, but were definitely a family.Its a full-time, demanding job. Landry says shes normally in bed by 8:30 p.m., getting up at 6 a.m.Its a lot of sleep, she said. We need it.Told she was too small to play at the highest level, Landry has built up her body. Today, she looks petite but powerful.Essentially our bodies are our armour, she explained. The more muscular you can be, the better youre going to fare in the contact parts of the game.And while her game has also evolved, she has not lost her speed. She may be the fastest on the Canadian roster. After the sevens season, Landry looks forward to playing in the Pan-American Games in Toronto in August.We havent played at home ever for sevens at the senior level. So to play within Canada is massive and to play at home is huge, said Landry. My parents came to the World Cup in 2013. They havent been to any other tournament. Its so far to travel for two days and its expensive, with work and all that. I have a pretty big extended family so theres a lot of tickets that my family have ordered.To play there and know that youre at home and know that Canada is behind you is huge, said Landry, whose French-Canadian roots come from her fathers side of the family. And its our first multi-sport Games so were excited to be part of that.The womens team will head to Brazil after the Pan-Ams to get a feel of the Olympic sites, so the next time you go youre focused and youre not wondering that thats like.The Canadian women, who are centralized in Victoria, will also play at home in April as the sevens series comes to nearby Langford for the first time.The next stop is Feb. 7-8 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where Canada will play in a pool with England, Russia and South Africa.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cubs Sammy Sosa Jersey .

While plenty of statistics illustrate Torontos turnaround in the second year of manager Ryan Nelsens tenure, stopping goals is not one of them.Tucson, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Arizonas home winning streak remained intact and the Wildcats regained their standing as the Pac-12 front-runners with a convincing victory over another top-10 opponent on Saturday. T.J. McConnell was nearly perfect from the floor and finished with 16 points and six assists as No. 10 Arizona bested No. 8 Utah 69-51 at McKale Center. McConnell connected on all but two of his 10 shots and made sure the Wildcats (16-2, 4-1 Pac-12) stayed competitive early. Arizonas big men, namely Stanley Johnson, took over after the break. Johnson scored all 18 of his points in the second half and pulled down nine rebounds for a frontcourt that owned a staggering 40-19 edge on the glass and a 34-14 advantage in the paint. Brandon Ashley chipped in with 14 points and eight rebounds as the Wildcats ran their home winning streak to 32 games. Im very, very proud of our team. We played with incredible energy and effort. We knew this was a big game, Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. Brandon Taylor shot 4-of-7 from behind the arc and totaled 12 points for Utah (14-3, 4-1), which won their previous seven games by an average of 23 points. The Utes jumped out to a 10-2 lead when Delon Wright banked in a 3-pointer and Taylor hit one from roughly 10 feet behind the arc. They were shooting 5-for-7 from the field over the first seven minutes, but went 11-of-34 (32.4 percent) the restt of the way.dddddddddddd Conversely, the Wildcats missed six of their first seven shots before McConnell going them going with back-to-back jumpers. Ashleys strong post move gave Arizona its first lead with under six minutes left in the first half, and McConnell, usually a pass-first guard, capped his 12-point half with a late jumper that sent the hosts into the locker room with a 31-26 advantage. A three-point contest turned into a rout thanks to Arizonas 17-3 flurry in the early stages of the second half. Johnson scored the first nine points in a variety of ways -- a 3-pointer, a tip-in of his own miss, a dunk and two free throws -- and two more free throws from Johnson made it a 52-35 game with under 12 minutes to play. Jordan Loveridge made three 3-pointers over the next five minutes to pull Utah within 57-47, but Arizona answered with the next 11 points to end any chance of a comeback. Six of those points resulted from offensive rebounds, and Ashley highlighted the late surge with a emphatic two-handed dunk. Game Notes Arizona had nearly as many offensive boards (17) as Utah did total rebounds ... The Wildcats managed 18 second-chance points to Utahs three ... The last time Utah was involved in a regular season matchup of top-10 teams was on Dec. 31, 1996 against Wake Forest ... These teams meet again in Utah on Feb. 28.
