for any individual. sports is a team sport so every player in court is of value so first of all we must try to avoid injuries because there were too many of those two since world cup even though it's well for more olympic sports have been grabbed by russians one is the national championships and they include olympic medal from over one the women's hundred meters brushstroke the idea of or also put her place in the london games the second place here and in the men's events is a top of one the two hundred metres freestyle qualify along with eugene logan of the silver. the other want to go i am pleased i wanted to better result but i failed a little bit anyway i have enough time before the olympics to work hard the main goal was to qualify for the olympics so i'm pleased because it's bottom of the wife now i have some time to going to see my mom and dad and then i'll go back to usa to
pass the olympics. i'm all athletics she's have lavished praise on moscow's preparations for next year's world championships the luzhniki spoke complex will host the event after also staging the athletics nine hundred eighty summer olympics but it needs to be refurbished the future events. at the stadium the renovations will be starting i think very very shortly and this is really good for laying down the new track having everything the state of the art. transportation plan. is being looked to ensure that. in moscow where some part of the traffic can be on the high end everything will be seamless for the athletes and i think very soon the public will be discovering the prices for tickets the ticket program. and finally go think history has been created in china as a local kid has become the youngest ever player to tee off in the vent on the
european tour wang chang lang is just thirteen years old and the hundred seventy three days he started playing the sport when he was four i was crowned world champion for his age group last year is only around you know china open was a little less spectacular as the teenager could only manage a five over par seventy seven but he still didn't have a bad effort there matthew baldwin leads the way by one stroke and seven under the twenty six year old has also won his rookie year on the tour by the biggest name hansen is six shots off the pace caught a cold shower for the swede he finished at the masters a full article. on the p.g.a. tour every lead in the text open after the first day not a name you see every day on top of the leaderboard his best finish in six years on the top is third but he is in full now hitting nine birdies to take a three stroke lead over. can get
the parts so that's all for now i'm back with more into. issue is that so much pressure on a drug that you know. there's the taliban bad guy inside this right wing fanatic this is one of course most determined in the wake of last year's massacre of seventy seven if you. are going. well. science technology innovation all the developments from around russia we've got the future.
