The coach says it was consensual. The athlete says he was blackmailing and abusing her. Could the school have stopped him? He threatened to rape her, and he threatened to kill her. For nearly three years, Carter, a track coach at the University of Arizona, and Gibson, one of his athletes, had met secretly for sex — inside Carter’s school office, in the Wildcats’ track and field team room and while traveling in team hotels. Gibson, who competed in discus and throwing events, says that Carter forced her into the relationship with blackmail and threats. Carter, a married father of four who is now 49 years old, says everything was consensual.

The earliest known depiction of boxing comes from a Sumerian relief in Iraq from the 3rd millennium BCE. In Olympic terms, it was first introduced in the 23rd Olympiad , BC. The boxers would wind leather thongs around their hands in order to protect them. There were no rounds and boxers fought until one of them acknowledged defeat or could not continue. Weight categories were not used, which meant heavyweights had a tendency to dominate.

The style of boxing practiced typically featured an advanced left leg stance, with the left arm semi-extended as a guard, in addition to being used for striking, and with the right arm drawn back ready to strike. It was the head of the opponent which was primarily targeted, and there is little evidence to suggest that targeting the body was common. Eventually harder leather was used and the thong soon became a weapon.

The Romans even introduced metal studs to the thongs to make the cestus which then led to a more sinister weapon called the myrmex ‘limb piercer’. The Roman form of boxing was often a fight until death to please the spectators who gathered at such events. However, especially in later times, purchased slaves and trained combat performers were valuable commodities, and their lives were not given up without due consideration.

Often slaves were used against one another in a circle marked on the floor.

Stories put the world in perspective and help people see their place in it. Talking to a group of somethings the same way you would a room full of stodgy actuaries will disappoint everyone.

Except as Min skated Sunday in Pyeongchang, it wasn’t just a small bit of her costume she feared would come off. Just a few seconds into her Olympic routine with partner Alexander Gamelin, “my hook came undone,” Min says, per the Detroit Free Press. And “if that comes undone, the whole thing could just pop off. I was terrified the entire program. Instead, she improvised the rest of the routine see a short clip here by avoiding moves that would’ve risked her costume slipping off, leaving her exposed in front of millions.

Gamelin, for his part, didn’t even notice the issue until they’d completed about half the routine. A figure-skating expert tells the New York Times that Min’s costume kerfuffle isn’t common, as competitors test-run their outfits before a big skate like that, “but, as we all know, stuff happens. Min and Gamelin have a compelling story, per the Free Press: Both US citizens, they’re skating for the South Korean team—Min’s parents moved to California from South Korea before she was born, and Gamelin, born in Boston, became a naturalized South Korean citizen so they could meet the rules required to represent South Korea together.

The duo came in ninth out of 10 pairs Sunday, but they’re already looking ahead to the individual pairs competition later this month. Read more Olympics stories.

Olympic torch: Flame rides on London Underground train

This performance celebrated Britain’s maritime heritage and geographical “isles” status. The characters Ratty, Mole and Toad from The Wind in the Willows were briefly seen, as was a ‘ Monty Python hand’ pointing towards London on umbrellas, and an InterCity train passing the Olympic rings as crop circles in a field. It then switched to a sequence filmed outside the stadium shortly before the ceremony, superimposed with posters from previous Summer Olympics all of them except Paris , Berlin , Los Angeles , and Atlanta , to a recording of ” Map Of The Problematique ” by Muse.

This ended with a live shot of three cast members holding the posters for the competition. There was then a second countdown in the stadium, with children holding clusters of balloons that burst simultaneously although one set failed to burst , with the audience shouting out the numbers. Bradley Wiggins , who had won the Tour de France five days earlier, opened the ceremony by ringing the Olympic Bell that hung at one end of the stadium.

Plumb whose name is meant to be as adorably one-of-a-kind as Diablo Cody or Juno MacGuff shows undeniable skill on the track, but is severely stunted in most other respects, especially all things emotional or intellectual, taking 90 minutes to arrive at her first original thought in a film that is itself almost entirely recycled from other indies, mostly of the early-aughts Fox Searchlight variety.

More Reviews Film Review: The first thing we realize is how little life Plumb actually has, as she devotes nearly every waking minute to her sport: Clearly, amid all the training she has put into achieving her Olympic goals, Plumb missed out on the basics of human interaction, a shortcoming that manifests itself in scene after scene of pouty-faced, wide-eyed discomfort on her part. Most times, she has no idea what to say in any given social situation, falling back on those infernal voiceover quotations to fill the awkward silences.

During the day or so we spend with her, she finally slows down long enough to live a little, building up enough life experience to reach the finish line — which in this case means coining an aphoristic nugget of her very own. In Los Angeles Film Festival — competing. A Bay Bridge Prods.
