Divers assault fort Lawrence

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 11 luglio 2009

DubrovnikDubrovnik. According to Irish writer G.B. Shaw it is “heaven on earth”, for many others the south Dalmatian city is the “pearl of the Adriatic”. For the world’s best cliff divers Dubrovnik may be the one or the other, but for sure it is the location for the third stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving Series 2009. On July 11 the picturesque Fort Lawrence will provide the perfect scenery for a competitive assault. The current tour leaders Andrey Ignatenko (UKR) and Orlando Duque (COL) will both try to keep the overall leadership. After two stops, the Red Bull Cliff Diving Series 2009 could not be more thrilling – with the Ukrainian Andrey Ignatenpicturesqueko and the Columbian Orlando Duque tied in first place in the overall standings. Duque – holding nine world championship titles – is the most successful cliff diver of all time and is clearly on a winning streak after Rotterdam. Also on his side is the fact that he was the winner of the last Cliff Diving competition held in Dubrovnik in the year 2000. In turn, Andrey Ignatenko, 45 years old, is this sport’s most experienced representative and has already shown that his current form is not merely a fluke. Following these two, a new generation of athletes raises its claim for victory. Ranked third in the previous competitions 25 year old Gary Hunt (GBR) could show the final prove for his talent in Croatia.  In the last two stops the platform has been fixed on an ancient defence tower and an industrial ship crane. In Croatia the twelve athletes will dive from a natural cliff. The form of the rock which is offshore Fort Lawrence on the small island of Lokrum asks for a 15m long platform to secure a safe landing for the divers. The chosen dozen will take off from 26m above sea level to twist and somersault their way into the Adriatic Sea and hot the water only three seconds later. Rebuilt after the war in the 1990s, the majestic city of Dubrovnik – on the list of UNESCO World Heritage since 1979 – kicks off the summer on the right foot. The icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea are now just a dim memory of the past and the transparent blue which should not go below a pleasant 20ºC is the high divers landing spot.
Red Bull Cliff Diving Series. The world’s best divers, eight challenging competitions and 26 metres between takeoff, athletic perfection and dive. In its first year, famous and well-known diving spots as well as extraordinary natural and challenging urban venues have been selected. Having started on the 8th of May in France (La Rochelle), the series crossed the Netherlands (Rotterdam/June 20th) and is now in Croatia (Dubrovnik/July 11th). The next stops will be in Italy (Polignano a Mare/July 26th), Turkey (Antalya/August 8th), Germany (Hamburg/August 29th) and Switzerland (Sisikon/September 5th) before reaching Greece (Athens) for the finals on the 20th of September. Red Bull Cliff Diving events are judged by five international jurors with scores awarded according to the degree of difficulty and execution of the dive. (Dubrovnik)

Obama joined NCAA champion University of Florida Gators

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 24 aprile 2009

The team presented Obama with a Jersey numbered “1” and with “Obama” on it. Also gave him a football that had “Barack Obama” printed on it along with what looked to be the score of the national championship game and, according to Reggie Love, who was holding it, the phrase “National Champions.” After getting the jersey, Obama gave it to Reggie. Then, in a move fraught with peril, the president threw the football underhanded to Love. It sailed just above the East Room Grid Iron for a two yard completion to Love who, gripping the Jersey in one hand, one-handed the catch with the other.  But the reception was good only for a quip from the president, who noted that Reggie had played football at Duke and asked him if he’d ever gone up against Florida. Reggie said he hadn’t. As Obama told him, “Yeah, you’re lucky,” Reggie said that Duke “probably would have beaten them.” There appeared to be some skepticism in the crowd. A brave thing, though, considering he was standing across the room from dozens of well-fed looking Gators. Though Reggie does presumably have some degree of Secret Service protection too.
