possible for the jumper

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- US swimmer Simone Manuel said Friday that she hopes her Olympic gold medal will inspire African American children to take up the sport.

Manuel became the first black swimmer to win an Olympic gold medal for the US when she tied for first with Canada's Penny Oleksiak in the final of the 100m freestyle at Rio's Olympic Aquatics Stadium late on Thursday.

"This is not just for me, it's for all the other African American athletes that have come before me that have been an inspiration," the 20-year-old said. "I hope that I can be an inspiration for others to come into the sport. Hopefully they can find the love and drive they need to get to this point."

Thursday's result was only the third dead heat in an Olympic swimming final.

Manuel and Oleksiak set an Olympic record of 52.70 seconds to finish ahead of Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom, who took the bronze medal in 52.99.

Australia's Bronte Campbell, who qualified fastest for the final and set a world record in the event last month, was fourth in 53.02 seconds.

Despite understanding the significance of her victory, Manuel said she hoped that one day the color of her skin would no longer be a talking point.

"That's something that I've struggled with a lot," she said. "I tried to take the weight of the black community off my shoulders tonight. It's something that I carry but I hope that it goes away.

"I'm glad I can be an inspiration to others and help diversify the sport. But I look forward to the day when there are more black swimmers and I'm not just as known for that reason.

The selected kickers of the two teams would have one shot at the goal each and would take turns shooting in the aim until one of the kickers missed.[citation needed] This really is how the game is played now from the kick-off.

Status of rugby codes in different countries

Rugby union is both a specialist and amateur game Greg Bird Jersey , and is dominated by the very first tier unions: Argentina, Australia, England, France, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa and Wales. Second and third tier unions include things like Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Fiji, Georgia, Japan, Namibia , Peru , Portugal, Romania, Samoa, Spain, Tonga, the United States and Uruguay. Rugby Union is administered by the International Rugby Board (IRB), whose headquarters are situated in Dublin, Ireland. It truly is the national sport in New Zealand, South Africa, Wales, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Madagascar, and is the most fashionable form of rugby globally, with the seven-a-side version of the game, generally known as Rugby Sevens, having been admitted into the programme of the Olympic Games from Rio de Janeiro in 2016 onwards. There’s also a possibility that Rugby Sevens will also be a demonstration sport at the 2012 London Olympics.

Rugby league is also both a specialist and amateur game, administered on a international level by the Rugby League International Federation. Additionally to amateur and semi-professional competitions within the United States, Russia, Lebanon, Serbia, Europe and Australasia, there are actually two significant skilled competitions – the Australasian National Rugby League and also the European Super League. International Rugby League is dominated by Australia, England and New Zealand. Other nations from the South Pacific and Europe also play inside the Pacific Cup and European Cup respectively.


Distinctive features widespread to both rugby codes include the oval ball plus the ban on throwing the ball forward, so that players can gain ground only by operating with the ball or by kicking it. As the sport of rugby league moved further away from its union counterpart, rule adjustments had been implemented using the aim of producing a faster-paced and much more try-orientated game.

The main differences in between the two games, besides league getting teams of 13 players and union of 15, involve the tackle and its aftermath:

Union players contest possession following the tackle: based on the situation, either a ruck or perhaps a maul can occur. League players could possibly not contest possession right after creating a tackle: play is continued having a play-the-ball.
In league, if the team in possession fails to score before a set of six tackles, it surrenders possession. Union has no six-tackle rule; a team can preserve the ball for an unlimited number of tackles prior to scoring as long as it maintains possession and doesn’t commit an offence.

Set pieces of the union code contain the “scrum”, in which packs of opposing players push against each other for possession, and the “line-out”, in which parallel lines of players from each team, arranged perpendicular towards the touch-line, attempt to catch the ball thrown from touch. A rule has been added to line-outs which makes it possible for the jumper to be pulled down as soon as a players’s feet are on the ground.

Within the league code, the scrum still exists, but with tremendously reduced significance as it entails fewer players and is hardly ever contested. Set pieces are usually began from the play-the-ball scenario.
