Kenyans are slowly learning and taking up

MADRID [url=]Adidas Originals NMD City Sock 2 PK valkoinen[/url] , Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- Atletico Madrid have to overturn an one goal deficit at home to FC Barcelona on Wednesday night as both sides look to book their places in the semifinals of the Spanish King's Cup knockout competition.

With Real Madrid apparently unstoppable in the BBVA Primera Liga, the Cup perhaps offers the best chance for domestic honors for both sides and after knocking their neighbors out in the last round [url=]Adidas Originals NMD City Sock 2 PK musta[/url] , Atletico will look to repeat that by leaving Barcelona by the wayside.

To do that they need to come back from a goal down after a Leo Messi penalty separated the pair in the Camp Nou a week ago.

That 1-0 win was the just the second time Barca had beaten Atletico in seven meetings, but came hot on the heels of a dominant 3-1 Barca victory in the same ground a matter of days earlier.

The fact Atletico didn't score an away goal in the first leg means their traditionally tight defense will have to be especially wary of Barca's front trio of Luis Suarez [url=]Naiset Adidas NMD R2 Vaaleanpunainen valkoinen[/url] , Messi and Neymar, who have connected in recent games and helped the Catalans cruise to a 6-0 win in Elche on Saturday night.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone loves his side to keep things tight in defense and hit rivals on the break [url=]Adidas Originals NMD R1 Glitch Harmaa valkoinen[/url] , but it is Barca who hold the cards in the Calderon, although they will have to keep a close eye on Fernando Torres [url=]Adidas Men NMD CS2 Primeknit musta Kengät[/url] , who looks rejuvenated after returning 'home', and Antoine Griezmann [url=]Adidas Miehet NMD CS1 Primeknit musta Sneaker Kengät[/url] , who has been in fine form of late.

The winner of the tie will have to wait until Thursday before discovering their rival, which comes from the clash between Getafe and Villarreal with matters finely balanced after the first leg ended 1-0 in favor a week ago.

Sevilla need to come back from a 3-1 first leg defeat away to Espanyol and Unai Emery's men also have to recover from the shock of a defeat by the same score in Valencia at the weekend.

Finally the last semifinal place will be decided between Athletic Club Bilbao and Malaga. The first leg ended 0-0 in Malaga and coincidence dictated the pair met in Bilbao on Sunday afternoon with that game finishing 1-1 [url=]Miehet Adidas NMD XR1 Primeknit Triple Black musta[/url] , a result which should it be repeated on Thursday, would qualify Malaga on away goals.

MELBOURNE, July 26 (Xinhua) -- The decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to not ban the entire Russian team from competing at the Rio Olympics next month has been met with mixed reactions from the Australian Olympic camp.

Sam Coffa, a Melbourne-based weightlifting coach who is the most experienced member of Australia's Olympic team and vice-president of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF), said the IOC had left its sports with an unworkable mess.

"They have lit a fuse and then retreated into a bunker," Coffa told News Limited on Tuesday.

"They have failed us, they have failed sport, they have failed the movement and it has absolutely taken the gloss off the Olympic Games."

The IOC announced on Monday that it would not apply blanket bans to all Russian athletes for August's Rio Olympics over widespread state-sanctioned doping, instead leaving the decision with each sport's governing body.

The decision came despite the recommendation of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) that all Russian athletes be excluded from the Games and has split the Australian Olympic camp.

John Coates, Australia's most senior Olympic official and IOC vice-president, supported the decision of the IOC executive board despite labeling Russian officials as "rotten to the core" in June.

"We did not want to penalize the athletes who are clean with a collective ban and therefore keeping them out of the Games," Coates said on Tuesday.

Coates' position was endorsed by Australia's chef de mission Kitty Chiller who said the team's focus was now entirely on winning as many medals as possible regardless of the competition.

"All we can say to our own athletes is, in the nicest possible sense, to wipe Russia from their minds and focus on their own performance," Chiller told News Limited.

"The decision has been made now. We need to trust the process and the criteria that have been put in place."

Walker Jared Tallent, who has been impacted more by Russian doping than any other Australian athlete, took a contrary view to Australia's most senior Olympic officials, labeling the IOC decision as "gutless".

The Melbourne-based Tallent was awarded a retrospective gold medal in June for the 50 kilometer walk at the 2012 London Olympics after the winner on the day, Russia's Sergey Kirdyapin, was stripped of the medal because of failed drug tests.

"I thought it was gutless," Tallent said on Tuesday amidst preparations for the Rio Olympics.

"Passing the decision off on the individual sporting federations was extremely disappointing. It was a golden opportunity lost to stand up and make a stand for clean sport and the integrity of the Olympic Games."

"The evidence is there. You cannot guarantee that any Russian athlete that competes in Rio will be clean even if they have been tested internationally. I will be watching the opening ceremony from Florida and I will be shaking my head when I see the Russian team walk into the stadium."

The governing bodies of both swimming and rowing took action on Tuesday to ban 10 ten Russian athletes from competing in their respective sports at Rio.

NAIROBI, July 19 (Xinhua) -- If you thought China and Kenya's relations come to the picture only when roads, railway and industrial construction is concerned, then you must be wrong.

Kenyans are slowly learning and taking up more Chinese trends. Eveline Nyambura, a second year political science student at The University of Nairobi knows this better than anyone else.

Nyambura's fashion sense makes her one of the most sought after girls in the campus. She gets hit on even by her senior students.
