Poster ‘represents African dream’

first_imgFifa President Sepp Blatter said portraying a country in the shape of a man heading a ball was a concept with potent symbolism. “For me, football is all about emotion and passion, which is why I was particularly attracted to this poster. It invites the world to join in the celebration of the greatest football event on earth, while highlighting the pride and passion of the African continent and her people. “It represents the African dream come true. South Africans made a good selection for the poster, which will represent their country all the way up to 2010.” Fifa.com said the face on the poster represented every African football supporter, from Morocco in the north, Gambia in the east, Kenya and Ethiopia in the west to South Africa in the south. “[It] is symbolic of the relationship between football and Africa, and captures a sense of excitement, awe and aspiration,” Fifa said on its website. “It also reflects the positive impact that World Cup will have on Africa. Africa is the hero of the official event poster.” Danny Jordaan, South Africa’s 2010 Organising Committee chief executive, said the poster symbolises the important role of football in the history, tradition and culture of the African continent, and would serve as an inspiration for a better future. “It recognises that Africa has a football face and a football heart,” he said. From an original 16 creative entries, all submitted by South African-based agencies, three proposals were pre-selected for a public vote by South Africans which gave the nod to the design by agency Switch. Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke said in September that it was important for the people of the host country to have a final say in the choice of the official poster, which would represent the country up to the last whistle on 11 July 2010. “I also want to congratulate the South African design industry on the creation of such wonderful artwork, all of which express the diversity and colourfulness of Africa in a symbiosis with the beautiful game,” he said at the time.last_img read more

Jardin du Tripot — Geocache of the Week

first_imgLocation:Basse-Normandie, FranceN 49° 25.128 E 000° 13.967 Difficulty:1.5Terrain:1.5 Image by CarPat – 2009, “4 oies crachant de l’eau”If you follow the young boy’s gaze, just beyond the pedestrian streets lined with half-timbered houses, you will easily locate the second converted fountain. Try not to ogle too long at this gaggle! The water is pumped to gracefully exit each beak of the four geese in a steady arc and returned to the river below. They decide to avoid eye contact with any geocacher so as to not give away ground zero.Image by piot57 – 2011, “fresque représentant des teinturiers,” length 10 m (32.8 ft) TraditionalGC5G0BHby scrouny Placed in December 2013, artist Annick Leroy supplied two special sculptures meant to interact with the drainage system of the nearby stream. The first depicts a young boy perched under an umbrella. When water is routed to the pipe directly overhead, it gently cascades over the edges of the boy’s cover as he gazes with a dry smile to the opposite side of the garden. Behind his eyes, there is a secret…perhaps it has something to do with the cache hidden close by? Share with your Friends:Morecenter_img Luckily, the cache does not incorporate an active water feature to retrieve and tries hard to stay dry in its surroundings! Once the cache is located, the finder can appreciate the mosaic fresco nearby, depicting six focused men and women. The scene is in tribute to the hardworking tanners and dyers that inspired the preservation of the vestiges of the old tanneries in the area, one of which is located adjacent to the garden, and an integrated part of Honfleur’s past. In the heart of Normandy, overlooking the southern bank of the Seine, lies the small medieval town of Honfleur. Its history can be traced back to 1027 in a letter from Richard III, Duke of Normandy. The past has been preserved with the landmarks of its rich history, including a converted garden atop a retired tannery with commissioned art pieces and a hidden logbook for this Geocache of the Week!Le Jardin du Tripot is not just any other garden. The location is serene, with the waters of La Claire routed carefully in stair-stepping troughs on their way to La Morelle. However, the water element serves another purpose: it makes the bronze statues in the courtyard come alive on the hunt for a geocache.Image by familiatableto – 2011, “Sous la pluie” Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

This is why Touch is excited about the new NRL women’s program

first_imgNRL CEO Todd Greenberg said that, for the first time, a Women’s Premiership will be held in 2018, featuring up to six teams aligned with NRL Clubs.Why is this a good thing for NRL Touch Football? It provides our female athletes with yet another pathway. Touch Football’s origins are in rugby league, and now, female Touch Footy players not only have the opportunity to play Touch Football at the top level – through the Elite 8, State of Origin, Trans Tasman, World Cup, etc – but also opportunities to play rugby league at the highest level if they wish.The NRL and Touch Football Australia formed a partnership back in 2013, and NRL Touch Football CEO Steve Mitchell is excited about the ever increasing opportunities for female Touch players with our partner sport.“We know that a lot of our Touchies have an interest in both our game and rugby league. Many of them follow both, some of them play both..We also know that some girls start out in Touch Football, eventually start playing rugby league, then return to Touch Football, since Touch is a lifetime sport that some play into their sixties and beyond.”There are so many former Touch Football players that play in the men’s NRL comp. And many World Cup-winning Jillaroos superstars – including Caitlin Moran, Maddie Studdon, Ali Brigginshaw, Nakia Davis-Welsh, Isabelle Kelly and Sam Bremner – either still participate in Touch Football or came through that pathway.Let’s hope we see plenty of Touch Footy athletes make it into the brand new NRL women’s program.In case you missed it, Mr Greenberg said the new NRL women’s program will feature:The Premiership, scheduled to be played as ‘double-headers’ in the lead up to and during NRL Finals matches;A stand-alone State of Origin match (formerly known as the Interstate Challenge) between New South Wales and Queensland, played during the NRL’s representative weekend in mid-June;State League competitions, with Grand Finals to be played as double-headers prior to Women In League Round matches;A National Championships Carnival and Talent Combine, congregating the best state talent on a national stage and providing a sequential pathway for female players to progress to the elite level;The Harvey Norman Jillaroos playing international matches in the Pacific and New Zealand;The Jillaroos competing in the Commonwealth Games Championship in Redcliffe, ahead of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games;In addition, Mr Greenberg said an initial 40 players would receive Jillaroos contracts, which would include payments for matches and participating in a series of high performance camps, as well as access to high performance staff and elite athlete training programs year-round. This month the NRL unveiled a new era in rugby league for women – a program of events covering everything from an NRL Women’s Premiership to a stand-alone State of Origin match and Jillaroos international matches.last_img read more

first_imgAston Villa striker Wesley: Being father at 14 forced me to chase Euro careerby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAston Villa striker Wesley has spoken of becoming a father at the age of 14.The Brazilian signed for the midlands club in the summer in a £22.5 million transfer from Club Brugge”I had my first child when I was 14 years old,” Wesley told Sky Sports. “It was difficult because it was during this time that I started to try and play football professionally.”I had to work in the day and then go to training in the evening.”I was 14 when I had my first kid, and 16 when I had my second. When I had my children, I told myself I had to do everything to be a football player.”Despite having two children to care for, Wesley went for broke when he was 17, embarking on a six-month trip to Spain for a trial with Atletico Madrid. It proved unsuccessful, but Wesley hailed the experience as “amazing” before heading to France, and then eventually ending up back in Brazil working in a factory where reality began to hit.”I had to get money for my kids. I would go to a team and every team said no,” Wesley added, before revealing how he ended up with AC Trencin. “I went to six teams before going to Slovakia.”When I went to the sixth team, I thought I didn’t want to play football anymore. I thought it was finished for me. Then I got a chance.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Video: Draymond Green Screams: “They Told Me I Can’t Play In This League” After Winning Title

first_imgDraymond Green celebrates a championship win.Draymond Green Michigan StateFormer Michigan State forward Draymond Green was certainly a force during his college days, but the Spartans star wasn’t looked at as one of the best players in the 2012 NBA Draft – mostly because teams couldn’t figure out what his natural position on the floor would be. Turns out most of those teams are now regretting passing on him. The Warriors star, who was eventually selected with the No. 35 overall pick, won a title last night after putting up a triple-double in game six of the NBA Finals. He’s one of the most versatile players in the NBA, too.After the game, Green, in celebration, was seen screaming to his mother “they told me I can’t play in this league.” It was a great redemption moment.Green is set to make some serious money this offseason. Apparently, he can play in this league.last_img read more
