Tonya Harding (USA) - 1994 Lillehammer, Figure Skating, Ladies' Free Skate, 1st Attempt
I've combined her first attempt free skate and her re-skate into one video clip: https://youtu.be/QcGLOYZoL_k Hamar, NORWAY - 1994 Lillehammer, Figure Skating, Ladies' Free Skate - Tonya Harding of the United States had skate lace problems when her original laces broke during the 6-minute warm up. Her team did not have a proper spare lace for this kind of an emergency and ended up using whatever they could find, which apparently was not long enough for her to properly tie her skate properly. In order to avoid being disqualified for not getting into her starting position within the 2 minutes after they announced her name, she would rush out ill prepared and started her routine. She would bail out of the opening triple Lutz and then go to the referee to show the referee her problem. She would be allowed time to fix her lace problem. It seemed that Tonya expected only a small break to change her lace and then go back out to skate, but the announcer came on and announced that she would be allowed to reskate at the end of the group and immediately called out Josee Chouinard of Canada to skate.

Archery | Why Do Olympic Archers Swing Their Bows?
First time watching the Olympic Games and wondering why the archers keep spinning their bows? Further viewing: Do You Have to Drop the Bow? https://youtu.be/H2P-qXGIM_M FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: Q: What's the tl;dw version? A: Olympic archers don't grip their bows. The bows are allowed to fall away, and swings because they are weighted and held by a sling. Q: Why don't the Huns / English Longbowmen / Mongols / Hawkeye / Hanzo do this? A: This is a precision shooting method, only used for sport target archery. Nearly every other field of archery requires a practical method of retaining the bow (i.e. NOT letting go). Q: Can you be accurate without dropping the bow? A: Yes. However, the context is important. An Olympic archer is trying to hit a DVD-sized bullseye at 70m. Involuntary movement in the bow arm and hand can result in a poor shot. Practical archery typically involves larger targets at closer distances, where pinpoint accuracy is not expected or needed. Q: Can't they just catch the bow? A: The bow's rotation happens faster than it looks. The archer is focused entirely on the shot process and is in the middle of the follow-through. The body is in a state of relaxation. In this moment, the archer is following the flight of the arrow and reflecting on the shot. The archer doesn't care where the bow ends; only where the arrow does. Q: What's all that stuff on the bow?

1968 Summer Olympics, Black Power Salute
An Inspiring Act of Bravery. Willing to sacrifice ALL for justice. Tommie Smith, Dr. John Carlos & Peter Norman. "We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference." --Nelson Mandela Follow us @ https://www.facebook.com/iloveancestry https://twitter.com/LovingAncestry http://iloveancestry.tumblr.com http://pinterest.com/iloveancestry It was expected that Americans would dominate the track at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Indeed, when the men's 200-meter began, American Tommie Smith led the pack, sprinting ahead to take gold. Heading into the home stretch, it looked as if teammate and world-record holder John Carlos would win silver, but Australian Peter Norman edged him out, bounding down the straightaway to take silver and leaving Carlos with bronze. But it's what happened next that would make history. Smith and Carlos stood on the podium wearing black socks without shoes to symbolize black poverty in the U.S. Carlos wore a strand of colorful beads to protest lynching. They bowed their heads as The Star Spangled Banner played, and raised their fists — clad in black leather gloves — in salutes to Black Power and unity. It was a gesture seen around the world, and an enduring symbol of political resistance. Winning the 200 meter, John Carlos accepted the Bronze medal at the Olympic podium wearing black socks and no shoes to represent impoverished people who had no shoes of their own, and raised a black-gloved fist crowning a bowed head to humbly reflect the strength of the human spirit. Headlines were made around the globe and the photograph of the three medalists standing peaceably in protest at the ceremonial podium instantaneously became a historical symbol of the fight for human rights. "We owe it to our Ancestors and to the sacrifices that they made, to continue to achieve higher goals, while maintaining our identity. Stand Up! Stand OUT!" This fleeting moment, though, came out of the deep-rooted struggle for racial equality gripping America. Smith and Carlos had been part of the Olympic Project for Human Rights, which, founded in 1967, had originally called upon black athletes to boycott the Summer Games. The movement's mission statement asked, "Why should we run in Mexico only to crawl home?" Ultimately the group decided against the boycott, but Smith and Carlos embodied their message of protest. Australian Peter Norman wore an OPHR patch on his jacket during the ceremony as a symbol of solidarity. "I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." --Nelson Mandela In a 2008 op-ed for the L.A. Times, basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who had been asked to try out for the '68 Olympic basketball team, described what watching that moment meant. "Whites were outraged, blacks felt some rush of pride," he wrote. Carlos, who would go on to equal the world record in the 100-meter, win an NCAA championship title and even play a short stint in the NFL, spoke in Chicago this year. Speaking to an audience of young poets and activists, he said that now, when asked by photographers to raise his fist for the camera, he instead instructs them to find a young person to photograph. "Let some young man or woman raise their fist," he said. "I want them to see that we've moved on to the next generation." DR. JOHN CARLOS FACEBOOK FAN PAGE http://ow.ly/lqWDl

Spanish/Nat Hundreds of Peruvian prison inmates can't make it to the Atlanta Olympic games - so they are holding their own. The prisoners are waving their own Olympic flag and lighting an Olympic torch in the San Pedro Prison Olympics. Despite the limitations of their facilities, for a month the inmates will make the best of it. The facilities might not be that good, but spirits are high. Some 400 inmates in San Pedro prison, on the outskirts of Lima, are holding their own Olympic games from Tuesday. Soccer, boxing, and baseball are the games expected to attract the most attention, but there are also individual games like chess, table tennis and athletics. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) The aim is mostly to keep our unity and to communicate to the public the efforts we are making towards rehabilitation. One of the ways is through sports. A sound body makes a sound mind. SUPER CAPTION: Carlos Chicoma, Prisoner Spokesman Each wing of the prison has its own representatives and they compete against each other. The director of the prison can only see advantages in their Olympics. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) It's a recreational sports activity that helps us entertain the prisoners while they participate in the competition. The prisoners do their best to be outstanding and take the prize to their prison wing. SUPER CAPTION: Col. Antonio Padilla, Prison Director The idea has been so popular that they are thinking about having Olympic games every year. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) To me, these Olympics mean health, a sound mind and a distraction for all my fellow inmates, to have something to think about SUPER CAPTION: Guillermo, Prisoner They may not get any gold medals here but they are getting plenty of satisfaction.

October 16, 1968 - U.S. Olympic Sprinters Protest Racial Inequality
The 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City may be most remembered not for an athletic accomplishment, but for a silent act of protest. On October 16 of that year, two African American sprinters who placed first and third in the 200-meter dash – Tommie Smith and John Carlos – used their medal ceremony to make a statement. As the national anthem played, the two men raised black gloved fists in silent protest against racial discrimination in the United States. Smith raised his right first to represent black power; Carlos raised his left to indicate black unity. They wore black socks and no shoes to signify black poverty in America. Smith wore a black scarf around his neck to represent black pride; Carlos wore a string of beads around his neck in memory of those who were lynched. Two days later, Smith and Carlos were expelled from the Olympic village, and were banned from participating in future Olympic Games. The men returned home to intense criticism for the perceived disrespect shown by the protest, but were hailed as heroes to the African American community. As time passed, the symbolic importance of their protest came to be more widely recognized and the image of the men with fists in the air and heads bowed is one of the most enduring symbols of the American civil rights struggle. The other medalist awarded in that ceremony, Australian sprinter Peter Norman, supported the protest. Along with Smith and Carlos, Norman wore a small badge over his heart for the Olympic Project for Human Rights, an organization opposing racism in sports. He also returned home a pariah and despite being ranked fifth in the world, and qualifying for the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, he was denied a spot on the Australian Olympic team. In 2012, a posthumous apology was issued by the Australian Parliament for the treatment Norman received after the 1968 games.

IOC tells PyeongChang it can hold some 2018 Olympic events in other cities if it
And we start with news that PyeongChang... the host city for the 2018 Winter Olympics is going to be offered the opportunity to share some of the burden of holding the global sporting event with other cities outside of Korea. The final decision will rest with PyeongChang′s organizing committee. The International Olympic Committee′s move is part of reforms aimed at cutting the costs for host cities. Song Ji-sun reports. It took PyeongChang three attempts to win the rights to host the Winter Olympics... but when the flame is lit... and the Games get underway... in February 2018... some of the events could be taking place elsewhere. The International Olympic Committee has offered the PyeongChang Organizing Committee the chance to host some of the events in other countries. The decision will be PyeongChang′s to make though. The IOC′s coordination commissioner Gunilla Lindberg told AP that PyeongChang gets the final say on whether the Games stay within the city or whether it takes the opportunity to host some events elsewhere. These proposals are part of IOC President Thomas Bach′s package of reforms dubbed ′Agenda 2020.′ The agenda is part of the IOC′s bid to change the Olympic Games to better adapt in the changing world, for financial and sustainability reasons. According to the IOC, hosting sledding events in pre-existing venues would save PyeongChang 120 million U.S. dollars in construction costs... and up to five million dollars a year in maintenance. After voting on ′Agenda 2020′ on Monday and Tuesday,... the IOC will hand over a list of potential cities to the PyeongChang Organizing Committee... which has until March to make its decision. The candidates include Nagano in Japan and Salt Lake City in the U.S., as well as ten other sites in Europe, America and Asia. PyeongChang organizers are said to be looking at all available options, but say long-term plans have been drawn up for the venues and construction has already begun. Song Ji-sun, Arirang News.

Here we shall trace the origin of this Games and reveal some interesting anecdotes about it. The origin of the games dates back to 8th century B.C and was conducted in honour of the Greek God Zeus. Basically it was a religious festival and held at Olympia. The athletes who participated were all males and came from every corner of the Greek empire. The sanctuary as it was called was named Mt. Olympos the highest mountain in Greece and also because it was considered the home of the Greek Gods and Goddesses. The first race to be held was in 776B.C called the stadion race. It was a foot race 600ft long. Some sources say this was the only athletic event held for a long time. The Games were held in Olympia every four years for almost 12 centuries. The first modern day Olympics was held in Athens in the year1896 almost 1503 years after it was started.Baron Pierre de Courbetin a Frenchman is given the credit for having restarted the games in the modern era. Delegates from 34 countries participated in the preliminary meeting to restart the games and though Courbetin wanted to hold it in Paris his homeland the delegates convinced him to move it to Athens. The idea of the Olympic flame had its birth in the games at Amsterdam in 1928 but the modern torch relay was inaugurated in Berlin in1936, The Olympic oath was instituted in 1920. Initially the ancient games was a five day programme and today it is a fortnightly e vent. The idea of holding the Winter Olympics came to the fray in1924 and from 1994 it was decided to alternate the summer and winter games. The Olympic flag was instituted in 1908 using the primary colours which would be found in every country’s flag. The five rings represent the continents and their unity. The motto Citius ,Altius Fortius Meaning Faster, Higher and Stronger have motivated athletes and sportsmen and women all over the world to achieve new landmarks in their fields of specialization. In addition to this the Olympics have added a nother feather to their cap by introducing the Paralympics Olympics. The entire event is of such a magnificent nature that organizing it is no easy task. This is done by the International Olympic association with representatives from all countries. This association is the parent body with the countries associations affiliated to it. They exercise immense influence and are well financed and equipped to handle this event. What started as a religious event has turned out to be a popular event viewed with great enthusiasm. A country’s sporting prowess is determined by the medals tally in the games.

Pagan Origins of the Olympic Games vs Today's Games
The Total Pagan Entertainment Package The Olympic Games are one of the most highly anticipated events in the sports world today. The Games are a huge event, attracting athletes from nearly every country. Although it has turned into a marketing and merchandising behemoth, the original purpose of the Olympic Games was a far less secular one. During the early years of the Olympics, events were held not as a way to collect multimillion-dollar endorsements, but to honor the gods of ancient Greece. The early Olympic Games have been called the "total pagan entertainment package" by author Tony Perrottet, author of The Naked Olympics: The True Story of the Ancient Games. The Games featured art, poetry readings, writers, plays, painters and sculptors. There were street shows including fire eaters, jugglers, dancers, acrobats and palm readers. Also important was the notion that war was put on hold during the Games. While the Greeks knew better than to try forming permanent truces with their enemies, it was understood that there was a moratorium on fighting during the Olympics. This allowed athletes, vendors, and fans to travel safely to and from the city for the Games, without having to worry about being attacked by marauding bands of mercenaries. Honoring Zeus For the citizens of Greece, the Olympics were a time of great religious celebration. Athletic events were mixed in with sacrifices, rituals, and prayer, as well as great feasting and revelry. For over a thousand years, the Games were held every four years, which made them not only the longest-running athletic event in history, but also one of the longest-running regular religious observations. The games were originally held in honor of Zeus, king of the Olympians. The very first Games consisted of only one athletic event - it was a footrace, which was won by a cook named Korobois. Athletes made regular sacrifices to Zeus (typically pigs or sheep, but other animals would do as well), in hopes that he would recognize them and honor them for their skill and talents. During opening ceremonies, athletes lined up before a giant statue of Zeus holding a thunderbolt, and swore an oath to him in his Temple at Olympia. All Roads Lead to the Olympics Athletes participated in events in the nude. Although there's no clear reason as to why this is the case, historians attribute it to a rite of passage for young Greek men. Nudity was important to the Greeks and they weren't bothered by it. However, many other cultures of the time found it off-putting that the Greeks were oiling each other up and then rolling around on a wrestling floor. The Egyptians and Persians felt that there was something a bit degenerate about the whole thing. While young women were allowed to attend the Games if they were brought in by their father or brother, married women never came to the festivities. Prostitutes were everywhere at the Olympics, and were often imported by merchants from far-off locations. A prostitute could make a significant amount of money during an event as big as the Olympic Games. Sometimes, as many as 40,000 people showed up, so that was a lot of potential clients. Some of the prostitutes were hetaeras, or high-priced escorts, but many were priestesses from temples dedicated to Aphrodite, goddess of love. The End of the Games Around 400 c.e., the Roman emperor Theodosius decided the Olympic Games were too pagan in nature, and banned them completely. This was part of the Roman Empire's shift towards Christianity. During Theodosius' youth, he was tutored by the bishop Ambrose of Milan. Theodosius passed a number of laws that were designed to eliminate Greco-Roman paganism completely, as well as doing away with the rituals and ceremonies that celebrated the old pagan religions of Greece and Rome. To make Christianity the state religion, all vestiges of the old ways had to be eliminated, and that included the Olympic Games. Be sure to read more on the Olympics from N.S. Gill at About Ancient History. Watch Now: History of the First Olympic Games - https://www.thoughtco.com/pagan-origins-of-the-olympic-games-2561988 Ezekiel 20:31 "When you offer your gifts, when you cause your sons to pass through the fire, you are defiling yourselves with all your idols to this day. And shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I will not be inquired of by you.

Part 2 is out: ***Ma Lin - Penhold God II (Signature Shots)*** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JR8UNmjK0Pk **Donate with PayPal to help and support this channel, thank you** https://www.paypal.me/top8tt Ma Lin uses the penhold grip. An aggressive player, he is known for his converse unpredictable serves, heavy short push receives, fast footwork, and powerful third ball attacks. In addition to possessing a solid backhand block, Ma Lin also uses the reverse penhold backhand (RPB), an innovative stroke utilizing the underside of the blade which allows a penholder to produce topspin from both wings. The most dangerous weapon Ma Lin has in his arsenal, however, is his consistent forehand loop, which he often uses to end a point decisively. He is also considered as a master at serving and his serve is considered one of the best in the world earning the nickname "Ghost Service". It involves the ball bouncing back to the net instead of going straight out of the table. Because of this, Ma Lin has claimed the titles "Maestro Ma Lin," "Defense Killer," and "Table Tennis Olympic Champion." Ma Lin is currently using a Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive Penhold as his blade. He uses DHS NEO Skyline 2 TG2 for his forehand and Butterfly Bryce Speed FX for his backhand.

The BBC perfectly encapsulated the Rio Olympics in one bold
Imperfectly perfect. That’s how the BBC closed their incredible video reviewing two weeks of the 2016 Olympic Games. An event held in an utterly flawed location, with real-world problems and the constant threat of a facade falling apart at any moment. Holding the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro began with concerns about violence, Zika and pollution, and ended with the city itself being just as problematic as always, but also, somehow, still managing to showcase its beauty. Dozens of networks will do their own "Rio review" type videos. Many will concentrate on the games themselves, which went off relatively hitch-free, but the BBC didn’t pull any punches in both highlighting how great the athletic performances were while not shying away from the troubles Rio faced, and will face into the future. Honestly, I could prattle on for 1,000 more words about how good this video is. Just watch it.

Learn Vocabulary: Sports of the Winter Olympics
What's your favourite winter sport? Is it figure skating or luge? Do you know what luge is? In preparation for this year's Olympic Games in South Korea, watch this English vocabulary lesson on Olympic winter sports. In this lesson, you will learn about hockey, skiing, snowboarding, curling, and more. Do you know all the different types of sledding? The Olympic Games take place every four years. Watch the video to ensure that this year, you are ready to talk sports. https://www.engvid.com/vocabulary-sports-winter-olympics/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. In today's lesson we're going to talk about the Winter Olympics. They're just around the corner, and I figured it's a good idea that you know what's going on if you're interested in winter sports. I'm going to tell you about the different events that you can watch, and what the different words are that they're talking about on TV. Okay? Because this year the Olympics are in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which is the northern part of South Korea, but not North Korea. It's a little bit confusing. The northern part of South Korea. And all the regular events are there, so I'm going to walk you through them and make sure you know which ones you like, which ones you want to watch, adjust your calendars, your timetables because if you live in a different part of the world, you may have to watch them during the night. So, we're going to start with the events and then I'll give you some general Olympics' vocabulary. Let's start with skating. Okay? We're going to... There're different events for skating. There's speed skating which happens around a long track, an oval track, and people basically race each other; then there's short track speed skating-sorry-and basically this is like a very short... It's almost like a little circle, and you have five or six guys, and they just basically have a race and they're trying to finish first; and whoever finished first, second, etc., they go on and they have a few rounds of this. Okay? They have different rounds, and the winner of each one or the top two of each race go to the next round, the next round until you have a final round, and then the winner gets gold, second place gets silver, etc., or in bronze. So, this is a very exciting event because there're always crashes, and they go around really, really fast, and they're like... Basically almost sideways because they're on their skates going around in a circle all the time, very exciting to watch. Then, of course, there's figure skating, which is one of the more... One of the most popular events during the Winter Olympics. There are men's, women's, and pairs figure skating, and I think there's also a dance figure skating, it's a little bit different. And basically they're on the rink, so the ice surface, or the... The building they're in is the arena and the actual ice surface is called a rink. And there they do all kinds of performances. It's very acrobatic. Now, you might hear all the different names of the movements they make, like double axel and cow something, these I don't actually know because you have to actually know something about figure skating, but you can just watch it. It's very beautiful to watch, beautiful music and they wear their costumes. Their costumes are just basically they create for themselves, they're custom-made costumes you can call them, and they go around, they do all these acrobatic things. There're two components to it, there's the technical and then there's the artistic. So they do this on two occasions, and they get a scaled score, basically up to six or five, 5.2, 5.5, etc., and whoever has the best score, obviously gets the gold medal. And the one component is the technical where they have to do certain number of routines, certain number of movements. And the second one is artistic where they have to basically involve those movements, but also according to the music, according to the style, etc. Okay? Very popular. And of course they're wearing figure skates. That's the only real equipment they need, except for their costumes. Speed skaters, they wear a different type of skate. It's a much longer blade, okay? So they're basically on blade. They're basically on, like, two or three milli-... Or three or four millimetres of metal, that's all that's holding them up. Very sharp edges to the blades, and that's what they go around on, etc. Okay? So, figure skating. Skiing, that's another common and very popular sport in the Olympics. All types of different events that involve skiing. Alpine skiing is basically coming down a mountain, and there's a slalom, basically it's a very long... They're on the slope of the mountain, and it's a very long course. Okay? And they come down and whoever has the best time... So, there's two ways to do it, there's time and there's also races for different things, but Alpine is usually time trial. Now, there's cross-country skiing which is flat but long distance. […]

London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay trailer - BBC
SUBSCRIBE for more BBC highlights: https://bit.ly/2IXqEIn http://www.bbc.co.uk/2012 This is the launch trail for the BBC's Olympic Torch Relay campaign. Using animation, the creative idea is based on the design of the torch itself and the 8000 holes in the design that represent the 8000 torch bearers. The trail opens on the DNA of the Olympic Flame and then pulls out to reveal the beautiful golden Olympic Torch, created in graphical dots. These dots begin to make up forms and characters. We see animated runners holding the torch and people coming together in celebration. As it reaches the end of the trail it pulls out to reveal celebrations taking place across the United Kingdom. The Torch campaign will be the first time audiences will hear the specially commissioned Elbow track "First Steps" that the BBC are using for its theme tune for the Olympics. The version used on the Torch campaign is a taster for the full track which will be launched for the Games times marketing campaign and Olympic title sequences.

Rio 2016 Olympic Games | Brazil Venue | 2016
Rio Olympic | Brazil Venue | 2016 Rio, An Olympic Nightmare By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Dr._Tim_G_Williams/1672163]Dr. Tim G Williams Political corruption, environmental disaster, pathogen infestation, financial ruin, terrorists threats, and drug lords: Let the games begin. When the Olympic committee voted to award the 2016 Olympics to a city that has the dubious distinction of being one of the leading crime and murder capitals let alone one of the biggest dumping grounds for raw sewage of the world should have raised so many red flags to every participating country that something was just a little bit discerning. And yet what has already been occurring for years has been a complete economic, financial and environmental nightmare. When Arthur L. Caplan, a bioethicist at New York University who wrote in February that holding the Olympics in Brazil would be irresponsible, he has been right all along. Scientists are still warning that the Zika virus is so dangerous, it would be unethical to allow the Rio Olympics to proceed as planned this August. More than 100 doctors, researchers and health experts from around globe signed an open letter urging the United Nation's World Health Organization to implore the International Olympic Committee to either move the summer games from Rio de Janeiro or even go so far as to cancel them, saying they are concerned about the virus' potential impact on global health. The Brazilian strain of Zika virus harms health in ways that science has not observed before. An unnecessary risk is posed when 500,000 foreign tourists from all countries attend the Games, potentially acquire that strain, and return home to places where it can become epidemic. Should that happen to poor, as-yet unaffected places like most of South Asia and Africa the suffering can be catastrophic. It is unethical to run the risk, just for Games on the risk of the Zika virus alone. The Rio Olympics is scheduled to run August 5 to 21, and more than 500,000 foreign tourists are expected to attend the games. Earlier this month, the WHO is warning Rio visitors about the Zika virus and encouraging them to follow protocol, such as protecting themselves from mosquito bites, practicing safer sex and staying in air-conditioned accommodations. These scientists cite precedents for postponing the games. World War I prevented the 1916 Olympics, while World War II canceled both the 1940 and 1944 Olympics. According to the letter, major sporting events have also been moved because of diseases, "as Major League Baseball did for Zika, and the Africa Cup of Nations did for Ebola. Professor Amir Attaran has been arguing that the people returning from the games could escalate the Zika health crisis in Brazil to a full-blown global health disaster. Given all the other problems with Rio's lax preparation, major crime issues and political upheaval, there is absolutely no good reason to hold the Summer Olympics in Brazil this summer. Simply put the Zika virus is more dangerous and in Brazil particularly Rio de Janeiro the outbreak is more extensive. These same scientists emphatically state several reasons why the Olympic in Rio must be canceled. First there is Rio itself. this city is way more affected by the Zika virus than anywhere else in the world. In Brazil the Zika strain is more dangerous and potentially deadly. And when you have so many foreigners crowded in the Olympic village just makes it more probable to for the Zika virus to spread and spread quickly to their home countries once the game are over. In essence a global pandemic is a more likely scenario. Proceeding with the Games violates what the Olympics stand for. The International Olympic Committee writes that "Olympism seeks to create social responsibility and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles" It is time to but the health and safety for all above the monetary value placed on hosting the Olympic games. As of yet the infrastructure that is supposed to have been put in place to rid the city of Rio of all the sewage and pollution that has ravaged the city for years there still remains vast areas where human contact would cause more health concerns than anybody bargained for. The Polluted water, the Zika virus the ongoing gang violence, the shoddy construction of venues, no safe transportation, and to top it off a government in bankruptcy have all the elements that spell an Olympic nightmare.

Gangneung ceremony kicks off countdown to 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics
2018 평창 동계올림픽 G-1년 기념행사 The countdown to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics begins. To celebrate, there's been a flurry of events and ceremonies around the country throughout the week, including the official G-1 year festival in the eastern city of Gangneung. Lee Ji-won takes us to the scenes. Passion to connect the world. The official ceremony marking the one-year countdown to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics - was held in Gangneung - one of the three sites to host the Games, along with PyeongChang and Jeongseon. "Pyeongchang is ready to welcome the world's athletes. Korea is ready to welcome the world. Now It's your time to make history." The ceremony featured several performances of K-pop and traditional music as well as video clips promoting not only the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics,... but also the host county of Pyeongchang and the northeastern province of Gangwon-do. But one of the most exciting and anticipated moments was the unveiling of the Olympic torch. The white base of the torch represents snow, while the five wings along the sides represent the five continents, symbolizing unity as they become one at the top. And thanks to some advanced technology,... the torch will have an eternal flame,…meaning that it will burn continuously and indefinitely even in the strong winds that can sometimes hit Pyeongchang. Next year, over 65-hundred athletes and delegations - in addition to 15-thousand journalists from all over the world, will fill PyeongChang for the biggest Winter Olympic Games ever. Those vying to get the first tickets to the event, can apply to the online ticket lottery which opened on Thursday at the official website, PyeongChang 2018.com. "In the course of the next few months,...Pyeongchang and Gangneung will be holding various test events and a variety of cultural festivals including the Gyeongpo World Fireworks Festival.

Tilt-down of fireworks and people celebrating STORYLINE Hundreds of South Koreans gathered at a giant ski jump in Pyeongchang weren't disappointed - their remote alpine town was named host of the 2018 Winter Olympics on Thursday. The decision in a vote by the IOC brought a roar of delight, leaps of excitement, hugs, screams, and even some tears of joy from the crowd in front of a giant television screen at a stadium attached to the 100-meter-tall ski jump, one of the venues Pyeongchang plans to use in 2018. The town of 47,000 near South Korea's east coast was the favourite to win the vote, after being narrowly defeated by Vancouver and Sochi in its two previous attempts to host a Winter Olympics. "I am so glad that Pyeongchang has been chosen as host country for the 2018 Winter Olympics," said student Cho Gyu-gwan. In Pyeongchang, almost every major South Korean broadcasting station set up a booth to broadcast the announcement live, and busloads of people arranged themselves in neat rows in the stadium, waving flags and singing songs of support. Their hopes were answered when International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge announced Pyeongchang's bid beat European rivals Munich and Annecy. South Korean Prime Minister Kim Hwang-sik was also present to celebrate the occasion, along with other members of the Korean National Assembly. "We will have to unite all the powers of every person in this nation to successfully lead the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics," he told a jubilant crowd. "We never gave up and finally we made it," said housewife Yoon Ok-nam.

N. Korea willing to participate in S. Korea's PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games
김정은 2018년 신년사 "핵무력 완성 대업성취+평창올림픽 대표단 파견 용의" We start with some potentially big news out of North Korea. Lleader Kim Jong-il has confirmed that he is willing to send athletes to the Winter Olympics to be held next month in South Korea, and he emphasized the need to improve relations between Seoul and Pyongyang. Kim also claimed that his regime had accomplished a great feat last year by becoming a true nuclear power. Our Ji Myung-kil has more. In his new year's address on Monday, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said his government is willing to send a delegation to the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics to be held in South Korea. And he gave his best wishes for the Games. (Korean) "The PyeongChang Winter Olympics will be a good opportunity to show the Korean peoples' prestige. We sincerely hope for the event to be held successfully." The young leader said this year was significant for both countries since the South will be holding the PyeongChang Winter Olympics and the North will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the North Korean regime's establishment. Kim also called for joint efforts to ease military tensions and to foster an environment of peace on the Korean Peninsula. Concerning the North's nuclear weapon's program,... Kim Jong-un said last year North Korea had become a full-fledged nuclear state. (Korean) "It is a not a threat but a reality that I always have our nuclear button on my desk, enabling us to hit the U.S. mainland." The young leader claimed that the regime's nuclear weapons will serve as a strong deterrent to what he called Washington's threats. Kim said the North needs to mass produce nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and accelerate their deployment. Pyongyang conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test last September and launched intercontinental ballistic missiles three times. Ji Myung-kil, Arirang News.

The focus of the talks will be sending a North Korean art troupe to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics -- including the number of artists to perform, the venue and the schedule. Now, the North's four-member delegation is led by the director of North Korea's performing arts bureau at their culture ministry, along with two orchestra conductors and the leader of an all-female band called Moranbong. It's likely that North Korea wants to send the Moranbong band to perform during the Games. The band was established in 2012 by the North's leader Kim Jong-un... featuring Western-style music and outfits. On the sidelines there could also be talks about doing joint performances during the opening and closing ceremony of the Winter Games. Now apart from North Korea sending performers... there's also the urgent matter of sending athletes. When will they get around to talk about that? You're right Devin. Actually, North Korea made a counter-proposal about two hours ago, suggesting the two sides meet this Wednesday for talks at the vice-ministerial level. South Korea had proposed such a meeting last week to discuss sending North Korean athletes. The North has to finalize on how many athletes they will be sending and what route they'll take to get to PyeongChang. The North will also be sending a cheering squad, observers, supporters, journalists and a Taekwondo demonstration team,... so there are still a lot of practical issues that need to be discussed. The International Olympic Committee will hold a meeting this Saturday -- January 20th -- with delegations from North and South Korea to finalize the participation of North Korean athletes, so we presume more working-level talks will be scheduled before the big IOC meeting.
