Ben Ransom gets a behind-the-scenes look at the facilities that the British Olympic Association hope will be the launch-pad to another record-breaking medal haul. Be prepared or prepare to fail.Its an old cliché but its one that Team GB are living by as they get ready for Rio 2016.  The plans are certainly impressive, with the British Olympic Association (BOA) putting more money than ever before into the preparation for an overseas Games. £1.6m of lottery funding has been set aside by UK Sport to fund the biggest pre-Games training camp a British team has ever had. In fact they believe its the biggest and most extensive training camp of any of the other nations competing in Rio. Lofty ambitions indeed.Two weeks before the opening ceremony, British athletes will begin boarding flights to Brazil, but having landed at the host city of Rio de Janeiro theyll jump straight onto another plane and fly 45 minutes north into the mountains. Belo Horizonte is a city that conjures up painful sporting memories for those who follow England, and in particular English football. Not only was it the scene of one of their most humiliating ever World Cup results in 1950 when they were beaten by a team of amateurs from the USA, the return 64 years later saw Roy Hodgsons England crash out of the 2014 competition after a lacklustre goalless draw with Costa Rica.Thankfully its a unified British team that will be touching down later this summer and when they arrive theyll be greeted by the best training facilities found anywhere in Brazil. The athletics track has the exact same surface as the Olympic Stadium in Rio, while Belo Horizonte is also home to Brazils only other indoor 50-metre swimming pool to meet international standards.  Team GB will have access to a 50-metre swimming pool, one of only two pools to meet the international standard in Brazil Each and every competing sport will enjoy a similar level of meticulous preparation, with a fleet of shipping containers crossing the Atlantic right now bringing with them everything from canoe slalom start gates to full-size Olympic boxing rings. Even the hotel rooms here will get the Team GB treatment to make sure athletes feel right at home - with patriotic posters and Union Flag cushions on the sofas.Paul Ford is the Head of pre-Games training and explained to Sky Sports News HQ why theyre going to all of the trouble.Technical training is the first most important thing and after that were then looking at how we can best acclimatise, Ford said.Were only 45 minutes flight away from Rio so its got exactly the same climate, which allows the athletes to go through the process of that four-hour time zone shift and get used to being inside Brazil before they go into the village and do their competition.The other key part of it is bringing together Team GB because they might come here as British Judo or the British fencing team, but they leave here as part of Team GB ready to take on the world. The running track Team GBs athletes will train on at Belo Horizonte will be the exact same surface found at the Olympic Stadium in Rio In 2010 the BOA wouldve been forgiven for putting everything into making sure London 2012 lived up to all the hype.  However, in addition to focusing on their own backyard, a delegation was also more than 5,000 miles away visiting the training venues here in Belo Horizonte. To put it into some perspective, recent media reports in Brazil questioned why the home nation had not secured the facilities in Belo instead to give themselves the best chance of success this summer.Brazils loss is Britains gain and rather than looking at it as an expensive gamble, Team GB are confident the investment of time and money will pave the way for their most successful ever overseas Games. To do that they have to get a total of 48 medals, one more than they achieved in Beijing 2008. But having spent three days travelling around with the BOA delegation theres no sense of settling for that figure.  Instead theres optimism that British performances in Rio could even push their greatest ever Olympic medal haul - when Team GB landed a total of 65 medals, including 29 golds in London. Sky Sports Orla Chennaoui brings us the latest news from Belo Horizonte where Team GB will soon begin their preparations for this summers Olympic Games As was the case in the build-up to London 2012 there are also negative headlines. Brazil is a country facing huge political and social problems, as well as a battle with the well-publicised Zika virus. Team GB want to leave their own human legacy in their home from home. Much of the training equipment being brought out and paid for by UK Sport will then be donated to local sports clubs in Belo Horizonte. And who knows, it might even be the small act of trans-Atlantic kindness that allows a young Brazilian athlete to fulfil their dream of going for gold in Tokyo 2020.That truly would be a legacy of Olympic proportions.

Rene Bourque, Jakob Silfverberg and Ryan Kesler also scored with Ryan Getzlaf adding three assists for the Ducks, who have won four in a row and seven of their last nine. Frederik Andersen stopped 27-of-30 shots for the victory. Andrew Ladd, Dustin Byfuglien and Jacob Trouba lit the lamp for the Jets, whose last two defeats have come beyond regulation. Ondrej Pavelec suffered the loss by stopping only 21 shots. Although he closed off the near post, Pavelec was powerless to stop Palmieris sharp-angle shot from the left wing, which was lifted under the crossbar and upped Anaheims record in one-goal games to 14-0-5. Our group has kind of showed that all year that we have been able to play through things and keep playing. Good or bad, the one thing we have done is play a lot of overtime games this year, noted Getzlaf. We know the situation we are in and you never want to let a team get back in the last three minutes like that. We have got to learn to close those out a little better. Less than a minute into a Byfuglien holding call, the Ducks picked up the games first goal as Bourque scored from the slot -- his first goal with Anaheim -- at the 11:02 mark. Just over 30 seconds into a Josh Manson tripping inffraction, Byfuglien beat Andersen with a quick shot from the slot off a give-and-go with Mathieu Perreault to tie the game at 14:28.dddddddddddd Ladd banged home a Blake Wheeler rebound on the advantage to give the hosts a 2-1 lead 93 seconds into the second period. Silfverbergs marker at 4:35 tied the game, and the Ducks had 1:37 of a 5-on-3 to exploit after minors to Ben Chiarot and Trouba 23 seconds apart. Kesler gave the visitors a 3-2 lead at 8:53 by one-timing a Getzlaf pass home from the left circle, but the Ducks were unable to convert a major power play beginning with 11 seconds remaining in the second period when Jets forward Evander Kane was given five minutes and a game misconduct for a check from behind on Clayton Stoner. Trouba flipped home his own rebound and the game was tied, 3-3, with 4:45 to play. The effort was there, compete, our pace was good. We were aggressive in the offensive zone, created a lot off some turnovers down low. It was a good, solid game, just a disappointing result, said Jets head coach Paul Maurice. Game Notes Bourques last goal was March 22 for Montreal ... Byfuglien has scored in four consecutive games, tying a career-high set from Nov. 15-21, 2013 ... Anaheim begins a home-and-home set with the Oilers on Wednesday, while Winnipeg travels to Dallas on Tuesday. ' ' '
