Through the eyes of Paula...

With the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics approaching quickly, it may interest some people to learn about some lesser known Olympic sports. To take a break from the well-known events, one can take a chance on watching and learning about a different event. Here are a few unusual Olympic sports.

1. Judo: Judo is a gentle way for athletes to take their opponents down – gentle as in not involving kicking or punching. This martial art uses a combination of throws and muscle power. This year marks 52 years since judo was introduced in the Olympics.

2. Rugby: Rugby may be unusual only because it has been absent from the Olympics for decades. The top contenders for the top prize are the Canadian and American women’s teams.

3. Field hockey: Field hockey is the only Olympic team sport in which there are medalists from all inhabited continents of the world. Historically played on grass, the international federation modified it to be played on a synthetic surface to provide a faster pace for flicking or chasing the ball. At Rio 2016, teams will compete in 15-minute quarters rather than 35-minute halves.

4. Trampoline gymnastics: Trampoline gymnastics only made its debut at the Sydney 2000 games, which is fairly recent. Competitors can compete solo or in teams, and they must execute an array of twists, turns, and other aerial feats while completing 10 bounces that put their bodies several metres above a trampoline.

Playing table tennis backstage after the evening’s show, Turner says he loved the gig. But as he did at Glastonbury – and as he does normally – he deployed old- fashioned formality for the French fans (‘Good evening, ladies and gentlemen…’) and adopted a stage persona, part southern preacher man, part northern bingo caller. ‘I can’t go out there and absolutely be myself,’ he tells me, adding that he has always put on some kind of act. ‘The situation is so fundamentally unnatural. It’s supposed to be that way – that’s what it is; it’s a show. So whether it was the cocky kid in the Lacoste T-shirt [that I used to do] or whatever, it’s all kind of an act to some extent. But…’ He frowns. ‘It’s not a full-on, “right, get into character” thing. It’s some sort of extension, maybe, of who I am actually. There have probably been times along the way where you have been overwhelmed by something, and part of how you actually feel comes out... But I think I always feel weird about that afterwards.’

    I've only just arrived http://www.hoteldaina.lv/stmap_ea26.html buy nugenix in pakistan Today I found Jesus. Abel solves my flamenco fiasco by sending me into the arms of Jesus Olmedo, a dance teacher from Madrid who runs Flamenco Soul. Our first lesson is at my flat in Chelsea. Jesus suggests we tackle two of the four dances of a Sevillanas – a type of flamenco dance. We choose the song Lenta Con Cante by Pepe Roca to accompany us. It is rhythmic, serious and passionate – perfect for a nearly thirtysomething marking her transition. Then I learn some basic steps, the Paso de Sevillana – a sort of waltz-step along with some intricate wrist spinning. “Imagine picking an apple off a tree, then discarding it,” Jesus tells me. I turn and twist my wrists in a clumsy fashion, plucking shiny Pink Ladies off an imaginary tree. We agree to have the next lessons in a studio with mirrors, so I can see myself in action. Good plan!
