In 1985, one of the greatest collaborations in modern history was unveiled. In case you’re wondering what collaboration this was, we’re talking about the partnership between His Airness and Nike. The Beginning of a Legend Michael Jordan entered the NBA in 1984 after being selected by the Chicago Bulls with a first round, third overall pick of the NBA Draft. Coming into the league, Jordan already had an impressive resume. While at North Carolina University, he had been named ACC Freshman of the Year, was selected to the NCAA All-American First Team in both his sophomore (1983) and junior (1984) seasons and won the Naismith and the Wooden College Player of the Year awards in 1984. He also helped Team USA win a gold medal in the 1984 Olympic Games. During his rookie season with the Bulls, MJ was not only chosen as the 1985 Rookie of the Year, he was also selected to his first of fourteen All-Star Games. Nike, who was having trouble selling basketball shoes, wisely signed the rising star. And, the sneake ...

Puerto Rico and the World Golf Amateur Golf Counsil will comitt fraud Regarding the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil . By Rudy Martinez Rodriguez Founder and President of the Puerto Rico Golf Federation since in 1994.
Via Rama Lakshmi/TWP Until recently, this iron-ore mining district in southern India was a byword for cronyism and plunder. Now it represents redemption, though not everyone is cheering. It was steel that made Bellary a boomtown — steel sought by China in the run-up to the 2008 Olympic Games. As demand soared, prices leapt 15-fold. Indians who cut corners and mined illegally while the government looked away got rich, including a modern-day robber baron named Gali Janardhana Reddy, whose 60-room mansion stood out among his spoils. A Supreme Court-led crackdown in 2011 over lawbreaking and corruption in the mining sector shuttered the mines and led to a prison sentence for Reddy, accused of treating Bellary like his private fiefdom. But now other barons are back, and unapologetically so. Their rebound reflects complicated attitudes about ambition, corruption and the law in an India where uneven enforcement of rules has fueled the rise of a new wealthy class in fields such as mining and real estate. In a d ...

I had covered the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the release of Nelson Mandela, the end of apartheid, the wars in the former Yugoslavia and 10 Olympic Games. In my naiveté, I thought I’d seen it all. I thought I would spend the rest of my professional life moving from place to place, and from story to story. But then I went to the Boricha Plateau in southern Ethiopia. And there I witnessed the first famine of the 21 st century. I looked into the eyes of some of the 14 million people on the doorstep of starvation. And, for the first time, I saw the paradox of the hungry farmer. Since my time in southern Ethiopia, I haven’t gone searching for a new story. Until the story of the hungry farmer is just that – a story, a fiction ...

SCARY: The world's most dangerous neighborhoods (Drugs, Crime, Prostitution..etc) 1. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Famed for its beautiful beaches and beautiful people.

In preparation for the 2016 Olympic Games the Brazilian government has taken heavy-handed (and highly criticized) measures to move the drug cartels out of the city and far from the eyes of the Olympic Committee and potential tourists. 2. Caracas, Venezuela Where just about everybody carries a gun, Caracas is like Texas on crack. The capital of Venezuela saw more than 18,000 murders last year, making it one of Latin America's most violent cities. According to a recent United Nations report, over 70 percent of all murders in South America are carried out with guns compared to about 30 percent for Western Europe.

March 7, 2013 Greco-Roman Needs You! By Steve Fraser The February recommendation by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to drop wrestling from the 2020 Olympic Games could very well be a blessing in disguise. The one great thing it has done for our international sport is unite the worldwide wrestling community in a way that no one would ever have imagined. Wrestling people, and just as important, non-wrestling people, have come together to fight the IOC recommendation. And in the process, the sport of wrestling has received tremendous worldwide media coverage. It has forced our international governing body, FILA, to reorganize and get better. Raphael Martinetti, who was the FILA president, has stepped down.

TURKEY ESCAPES HEAT OF FİXİNG ROW Nation bidding to host Olympics and Euro 2020 final despite landmark corruption sting, says Ashling O'Connor Straddling two continents, Istanbul is hot destination in sport. A source of one last big pay day for footballers such as Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, it is also a place for sports chiefs to satisfy constituencies in both Europe and Asia. If its stars align, Turkey's largest city could host the 2020 Olympic Games and the European Championship final in the same year. Yet while Istanbul is courted by the International Olympic Committee, Uefa and Western politicians, it is as if a landmark match-fixing case in its backyard last summer never happened. After a wire-tap investigation by police into some of Turkey's most powerful men, one of the country's cumulative sentences of more than 42 years for match-fixing, bribery, extortion and membership of an illegal crime syndicate.

GillyG Welcome to the newly opened Wembley Stadium, just in time for the start of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Today is the Blue Ribbon event for women – namely the 100m sprint. On the starting blocks, adrenalin pumping, we have our two finalists. Viv is really fired up for this race today. She is wearing her old school navy blue PE knickers with pride. To add a touch of style to her running spikes she has embellished them with holographic peel-offs, more Adidid than Adidas I think. Likewise she has used holographic glitter to add the Adidas 3 stripes to her running shirt & as an accent on her navy blue knickers. 2 lanes down, champing at the bit, we have the representative from Craftham. Joanie has added spikes to her glittery pink wellies (this was the 2nd attempt as the first time she put the spikes in the wrong way round and gave herself a free lesson in acupuncture and there’s certainly nothing wrong with her reflexology). She’s hoping the glue dots keep the spikes in place lon ...

Fernández Anaya rather than exploit the mistake of Mutai and accelerate up to claim an unlikely victory, remained behind and gestures, he led the Kenyiota to cross the line first. At the end of the race said: "Although I have said that the victory would guarantee me a spot in the Spanish squad for the European Championships, I would not have done. Because today, with the way things are in all environments: in football, in society, in politics, where it seems that everything is allowed, a gesture of honesty is even more important " As mentioned at the beginning: ...

Topher Breski's year in sports 2012 - The media dislikes Michael Phelps; I could write about it endlessly and I have no clue why; he’s the most decorated Olympian since Abantes Arcaeus. What, you’ve never heard of Abantes Arcaeus? Let me rattle off his story for you real quick. In the 391 Olympic Games, Abantes won Olive Branches in three Chariot races, the Marathon run, the Discus throw, the Diaulos, Pankration, The Javelin throw, Wrestling, and Boxing. Women were understandably all over Abantes, as was custom in Ancient Greece. He was all but assured of Ménage à 100s with every woman in his hometown of Bhrytos. It was not without consequence, though, his accomplishments maddened Theodosius, Greek ruler at the time (who abolished the games soon after this), who had grown very accustomed to his own Ménage à 100s and did not want to lose them to a modest Athlete. After winning Olive Branches at Greco-Roman Wrestling (or as they called it back then, wrestling) in every weight class (he starte ...

Atlanta '96 Olympic Games gold medallist Taribo West has joined the growing fan club for Africa Cup of Nations hero Sunday Mba by hailing him as a "fantastic player". Mba's superb volley fired Nigeria to their third continental title after the Super Eagles beat surprise finalists Burkina Faso in the final of South Africa 2013 in Johannesburg on February 10 and reports have linked him with a host of European clubs, including Bayer Leverkusen. But Taribo has advised the 24-year-old, whose ownership has sent Warri Wolves and Enugu Rangers into a major battle, to seek guidance before putting pen to paper for any club. "Mba is a fantastic player and I understand many European clubs are after him," the former AC Milan and Inter Milan strongman told our correspondent on the telephone on Friday. "My prayer is that those managing him should not sell him to a small club. "He should be patient and not be in a haste to leave the country for Europe. He has age on his side and he should not allow self-seeking managers ...

Find good training partners In 2002, Salazar started the Oregon Project, a post-collegiate training group funded by Nike, where its athletes would get access to every resource they would need to succeed: top of the line gear and equipment, use of Nike’s world-class facilities, physical therapy of various sorts, altitude houses, underwater treadmills, cryo-saunas, and the list goes on. More important than perhaps any of these things, however, is the powerful group-training environment that is the core of the Oregon Project. Salazar’s aim from the beginning was to foster an atmosphere where American distance runners (and later, international athletes as well) would train together in pursuit of a place on the medal stand at major international competitions such as the world championships and the Olympic Games. Rupp, a high schooler coached by Salazar at the time the Oregon Project first came to be, would often run workouts with the professional members of the team — runners who had personal bests signi ...

The first opening ceremoniy was held during the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
Women's boxing first appeared in the Olympic Games at a demonstration bout in 1904. For most of the twentieth century, however, it was banned in most nations. Its revival was pioneered by the Swedish Amateur Boxing Association, which sanctioned events for women in 1988. The British Amateur Boxing Association sanctioned its first boxing competition for women in 1997. The first event was to be between two thirteen-year-olds, but one of the boxers withdrew because of hostile media attention. Four weeks later, an event was held between two sixteen-year-olds. The A.I.B.A. accepted new rules for Women's Boxing at the end of the 20th century and approved the first European Cup for Women in 1999 and the first World Championship for women in 2001. Women's boxing was not featured at the 2008 Olympics; however, on 14 August 2009, it was announced that the International Olympic Committee’s Executive Board (EB) had approved the inclusion of women’s boxing for the Games in London in the 2012 Olympics, contrary to t ...
