Default Rio Olympics

Starting on August 5th.

If people don't know about it, Siddikur Rahman could become the first Bangladeshi to directly qualify for Olympics. Bangladesh is still the largest country not to have anyone qualified in Olympics.

Quote:
The top 15 players in the world rankings on July 11 will qualify automatically for the Aug. 5-21 Games but only four can come from any one country.

The remainder of the 60-man field will be determined by the rankings, with a maximum of two players from each country that does not already have two or more players among the top 15.

Siddikur currently sits 58th on the list, just inside the qualification spots.

Whether cricket makes it will be known by this month. In case it makes it, it would be in 2024 Olympics.

A couple of days more for the start of the Olympics...top athletes are staying away from it because of fear of contracting Zika...but this time of the year in Rio, I think is winter...and hopefully this will keep the mosquitoes at bay...

A bit of history about the Olympics

Quote:
DECLINE AND REVIVAL OF THE OLYMPIC TRADITION
After the Roman Empire conquered Greece in the mid-2nd century B.C., the Games continued, but their standards and quality declined. In one notorious example from A.D. 67, the decadent Emperor Nero entered an Olympic chariot race, only to disgrace himself by declaring himself the winner even after he fell off his chariot during the event. In A.D. 393, Emperor Theodosius I, a Christian, called for a ban on all “pagan” festivals, ending the ancient Olympic tradition after nearly 12 centuries.

It would be another 1,500 years before the Games would rise again, largely thanks to the efforts of Baron Pierre de Coubertin (1863-1937) of France. Dedicated to the promotion of physical education, the young baron became inspired by the idea of creating a modern Olympic Games after visiting the ancient Olympic site. In November 1892, at a meeting of the Union des Sports Athlétiques in Paris, Coubertin proposed the idea of reviving the Olympics as an international athletic competition held every four years. Two years later, he got the approval he needed to found the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which would become the governing body of the modern Olympic Games.

50 World Records. I really don't care. I just want Bolt to win 100, 200, and 4x100. I am not sure if he would run 4x400. Phelps to get few more as well.

USWNT Soccer just can't stop winning....Carli Lloyd's goal proved to be the winning one against France. It is her eight goal in the Olympics.
