SOCHI, Russia -- IOC President Thomas Bach paid tribute Tuesday to the victims of the recent suicide bombings in southern Russia that killed 34 people and heightened security concerns for the Sochi Olympics. Bach spoke at a ceremony in the athletes village to urge compliance with the "Olympic Truce," a symbolic resolution urging warring parties to cease hostilities during the games. "We remember and grieve for the innocent victims of conflict, and especially the recent victims in Volgograd," Bach said. "Our presence here today is a rebuke to those whose motives and goals stand in sharp contrast to the spirit of harmony and global solidarity at these games." An Islamic militant group from the North Caucasus region claimed responsibility for the back-to-back bombings in late December in Volgograd, about 640 kilometres (400 miles) east of Sochi, and threatened to strike the Olympics. Russia has mounted a massive security operation to guard the games, which open Friday and run through Feb. 23. Tens of thousands of military and police personnel have been deployed, along with warships, drone aircraft and anti-missile batteries. The U.N. General Assembly adopted a resolution in November calling for a global truce during the Sochi Games. Similar resolutions have been passed going back to the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. "We are not naive," Bach said. "We know our limits." The IOC leader said the Olympic Village is a symbol of peace. "Men and women from different backgrounds, different cultures, different religions and different perspectives live side-by-side in harmony," he said. Bachs use of the term "different perspectives" could be seen as a reference to sexual orientation. The buildup to Sochi has been overshadowed by an international outcry against a Russian law banning gay "propaganda" among minors. Activists and some politicians called for a boycott of the games over the issue. "We must never let politics or other outside forces spoil this spirit," Bach said. Among those attending the ceremony was Russian pole vault star Yelena Isinbayeva, who is serving as the "mayor" of the Olympic Village in the coastal cluster of venues. Isinbayeva made headlines in August at the world athletics championships when she condemned homosexuality, saying Russians have "normal" heterosexual relations. The next day, she said her comments in English may have been misunderstood and that she is against any discrimination. Isinbayeva declined further comment Tuesday on the Russian laws butSvetlana Zhurova, mayor of one of the other two athletes villages in the mountains above Sochi, said the issue had been overblown, was unfairly clouding the buildup to the games and she was fed up with fielding questions about it. Zhurova, the 2006 Olympic speedskating gold medallist , urged activists not to use the Winter Games as a platform for protests. "For the spectators it is more important who wins than whether he or she is homosexual or not," she said. "This doesnt matter. Im sure there will be no problems." Tuesdays ceremony began in embarrassing fashion for the hosts. As Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak prepared to speak, the plastic lectern collapsed onto the ground. Bach drew laughs when he said: "We can see that sport can break down walls this morning." Members of the IOCs executive board toured the Olympic Village, which will accommodate about 2,200 athletes along the Black Sea coast. Two other smaller villages are located in the mountain cluster above Sochi. Bach chatted with athletes, grabbed some lunch in the cafeteria and played table tennis in the recreation room. "The village is really magnificent," he said. "What the athletes appreciate is the proximity to the competition venues. I just spoke to a female American speedskater and Russian ice hockey player and the first thing they say is, We can walk from here to our training sessions." Bach has his own room in the village, keeping a tradition started by his predecessor, Jacques Rogge, though he also stays in a luxury hotel nearby during IOC meetings. "One of the greatest privileges of an IOC president is you can ask for a room in the Olympic Village," Bach said. "Its here where the Olympic spirit lives." Gerald Everett Jersey .

Levante, which had lost five straight including a Copa del Rey game last weekend, fell behind at its Ciutat de Valencia stadium when Ionut Sapanura opened the scoring for Elche in the 26th minute.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Josh Satin and the New York Mets were determined not to lose another long game at Citi Field, especially one that had pushed past 5 hours. No worries. The suddenly smooth-swinging Satin and rookie Andrew Brown took care of it. Brown hit a two-run single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Mets put together a pair of late rallies to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Monday night, handing the NL West leaders their fourth straight loss. "Walking a team off at the end — theres no greater feeling," Satin said after his second three-hit game in a row. Satin tied it with an RBI single in the ninth off Arizona closer J.J. Putz, his first save opportunity since the ex-Met went on the disabled list May 8. Cody Ross led off the 13th with a homer against David Aardsma (1-0), but the Mets fought back again against the Diamondbacks bullpen. Satin doubled with one out off Josh Collmenter (4-1) and John Buck was intentionally walked, putting the potential winning run on base. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey pinch hit for Aardsma and sacrificed the runners over. After Omar Quintanilla was also intentionally walked, Brown lined an 0-2 pitch into left-centre and was mobbed by teammates near first base well after midnight. Collmenter slammed his glove to the ground and then yelled in frustration as he walked off the field. "Give those guys credit for coming back," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "Its a tough loss." Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra was injured in the eighth when he hit his face hard on the warning track trying to make a diving catch on Quintanillas triple. The Diamondbacks said a Mets team doctor ruled out a concussion for Parra, a 2011 Gold Glove winner. Wearing black armbands on their jerseys to honour the 19 firefighters who died Sunday in a wildfire about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix, the Diamondbacks fell to 2-5 on a 10-game road trip against the NL East. The Mets won for the fourth time in 12 home games, needing 5 hours, 13 minutes to secure it. "If youre going to be out there that long you might as well win the game," manager Terry Collins said. "We were out of pitching, I can tell you that." The Diamondbacks appeared poised to snap a three-game skid and end a long drought of winless starts by their starters at 23 games (0-10), opening an early 3-0 lead behind Paul Goldschmidts two-run homer, his 20th, and Aaron Hills RBI single in the second off Shaun Marcum. "I thought that was going to be the one that sort of got us going as far as getting our starters a win," Ross said. The bullpen spoiled it. New York tied it in the ninth against Putz. Marlonn Byrd hit a double off the very top of the wall — a call upheld by replay review — and Satin drove him in with a single.dddddddddddd New York had an opportunity to win it there but Buck was thrown out trying to advance to second base on a wild pitch that moved Satin to third, ending the inning. Putz said he felt fine, it was just poor execution against Byrd. "I just didnt finish the pitch," Putz said of the split-fingered fastball that he wanted to bounce in the dirt. Satin was called up when buddy Ike Davis was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in a deep funk, and the 28-year-old first baseman with just 64 major league at-bats has been the teams hottest hitter the past week. Hes batting .444 (12 for 27) in the last seven games, and earning more playing time. "Josh deserves some at-bats. Hes getting some big hits. It doesnt matter if theyre left-handed or right-handed. Hes getting big hits for us," Collins said. "Ill tell you what: Every team has somebody that surprises you and saves you. And right now, hes our saviour cause this guy has come up and filled a big hole for us." The Mets started their comeback after Wade Miley was lifted following 5 2-3 innings of shutout ball. He was the last Diamondbacks starter to win — on June 5. David Wright had an RBI single off Brad Ziegler in the seventh and Eric Young Jr. a run-scoring double off David Hernandez after a 10-minute delay when Parra got hurt. Parra was able to walk off the field without assistance after being examined by a Diamondbacks trainer and two EMTs right in front of the Arizona bullpen. Quintanilla scored on Youngs two-out double to make it 3-2. Goldschmidt, who was 1 for 9 during a three-game weekend sweep in Atlanta, gave Miley a quick cushion. He hit a 2-1 pitch from Marcum after Hill was hit by a pitch with one out in the first. Hill added an RBI single in the second before Marcum settled in for six innings. Then five Mets relievers shut down Arizona, giving up just four hits until Ross homer. NOTES: The Mets and Diamondbacks each hung a jersey in their dugouts bearing the name "Yarnell" — the locale of the fire — and the No. 19. Those jerseys were shown on the scoreboard at Citi Field during a moment of silence before the national anthem. ... Mets SS Ruben Tejada (strained quadriceps) played his third game for the Gulf Coast League Mets and went 2 for 4 with an RBI while playing all nine innings. Tejada will continue his rehab at Triple-A Las Vegas but will have to earn his way back to the big leagues, Collins said. ... Diamondbacks LHP Patrick Corbin (9-0) faces Mets RHP Jeremy Hefner (2-6) on Tuesday.
