SHENYANG Authentic Radek Faksa Jersey , China, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese wrestling coaches and athletes are relieved as their sport has been voted back in the summer Olympics.


At the 125th International Olympic Committee (IOC) Session in Buenos Aires on Sept. 8, wrestling defeated a joint bid of baseball-softball and squash in a secret ballot to earn its place in the program for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and 2024 Games.


In February this year, wrestling was dropped from the list of IOC's "core sports," a surprise move that set off a campaign by FILA, the international governing body for wrestling, to overhaul its governance and revamp the ancient sport that dates back to the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896.


"I had been badly affected by the news that wrestling was kicked out of the Olympics. I cann't do without the sport," said London Olympics silver medalist Jing Ruixue who only placed fourth in women's 63kg freestyle at the ongoing Chinese National Games here on Sunday.


Hours later, Jing was delighted to know that wrestling was back in the Olympics.


"To me, no other competition can be compared to the Olympics," she said.


Jing was among the six wrestling Olympic medalists who brought China one gold, two silver and three bronze medals since 1984.


The small number of Olympic medals makes wrestling a lesser sport in the country that already topped the medal tally with 51-21-28 in Beijing Games and claimed second-place in London on 38-27-23.


As China spend hugely on promoting Olympic sports, wrestling could have been faced with a steep drop in state funding if it failed to be included in the Olympic program.


With little social attention and few sponsors, Chinese wrestlers almost soly depend on state funds for a living.


"If the sport could not return to the Olympic family, so many athletes would lose their jobs," said coach Liu Guoke from Shandong, where there are thousands of registered wrestlers.


"Beginners can have more choices but things will become difficult for those who have trained for over 10 years," he added. "They have no other skills than wrestling."


While relieved at wrestling's return, athletes and coaches wish more changes to the historic sport.


"I think poor promotion and marketing is the main reason wrestling was previously kicked out of the core sports," said Zhao Xiaochun, deputy head of the Shanxi provincial delegation.


"Anyway, if they don't make any changes, the sport is always in danger of losing its Olympic status," he said.


FILA already introduced several sweeping reforms in their efforts to regain Olympic status which included an increase in women's participation at all levels of the sport, a review of the rules of wrestling with the intent of making the sport more understandable and attractive to spectators and less dependent upon subjective officiating.


Additionally, FILA is reviewing the presentation of the sport to modernise the competition format while initiatives are also underway to boost marketing and promotion.




NEW DELHI, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- India's Tata Group Monday sacked Cyrus P. Mistry as the company's Chairman and replaced him with 78-year-old Ratan Tata as the interim chairman, in a surprising move.


"The decision was taken at a board meeting held today (Monday)," Tata Sons, the holding company of the Tata Group, said in a release. However, no details were given by the company for the change.


The board has also set up a selection committee to choose a new chairman within four months. The committee includes Ratan Tata.


However, Mistry will continue to be the director of the 150-year-old Tata Group, a position he has been holding since 2006.


Mistry, who was the first chairman to be appointed from outside the Tata family, has led the 100 billion U.S. dollars Tata Group since late December 2012 after Ratan Tata relinquished office at 75.


Mistry was earlier the Managing Director of the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, one of the biggest shareholders of the Tata Sons, and he transformed it into a billion-dollar enterprise.


Tata Sons owns Jaguar Land Rover, as well as Tetley Tea. It is one of India's oldest conglomerates and is made up of over 100 companies, including Tata Steel, Tata Motors and Tata Consultancy Services.


Strange as it may appear the use of a wedding ring by men was not typical until lately. Whereas women have worn wedding rings for eons, men have not. The use of rings as a symbol of everlasting adore enshrined in marriage can be traced back thousands of years. But not so much for men. It was, in reality, during the second world war that the use of wedding rings by men became a lot more typical. (Note that mens wedding rings and menís wedding bands are interchangeable, both meaning the exact same factor. )It became the custom for US soldiers going to war to publicise their marital status by the wearing of a manís wedding ring. They were pleased to make public their commitment to their wife by the wearing of a public symbol that declared that commitment to all. Given that this habit of wearing menís wedding bands was reasonably new it was all the far more creditable that these men were willing to forego the marital obscurity obtainable to them from not wearing a ring and actively chose to make a public statement about their option. Menís wedding rings have grow to be increasingly a lot more common because that time.


These days it is possibly as frequent for a newly married man to wear a ring as not. This may possibly be due to a number of elements. The modern day man might contemplate it his duty to pick to make the exact same public marital statement as his wife will. And his wife may well consider it a condition of the marriage that he do so. After all, in these days of equality, if she is prepared to make a statement then really should he not do so as effec.
