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.

We did not order the duck, sating ourselves instead with dim sum and larger dishes from a menu that mingles cuisines from various regions (most notably, the spicy, vinegary cooking of Szechuan). Though it had its moments, this is by no means the best Chinese cooking in London. But you are not being charged prices far more eye-watering than the hottest thing on the menu for the food or the service (which was friendly and informative when present, though prone to going AWOL).

That many countries were willing to offer sanctuary and that he chose Russia, is not Putin's fault. The truth is that Russia has not supported the US policy of military intervention in the Arab world and rightly so. Syria would be a total mess, if the Jehadi rebels are given a free hand. Iran, despite all its faults, has been a stable regime, who the US wishes to sideline, but the Russians do not agree. What Obama will achieve by not meeting Putin is unclear. Working in tandem with Russia will achieve more for the US

They are just wandering around these shops. It is, of course, easier to beg the passers-by for 20 cents in order to collect one lat – that is the price of one dose; than get money for one dose of heroin. They ask old ladies, elderly women who are passing by for 20 cents and that’s all. All these people need to do is look into the eyes and it is clear how it happens, what is happening inside. There is a brain turned to mush; these people are useless after using a couple times. They are unable to relate to the surrounding reality. It means that they are already in some other world, which is dark and unclear. I think it is wrong that they are selling it in all neighbourhoods of the city; and this network is very wide. I think that the state can end this easily but for some reason it does not happen. So it makes you wonder why.
