|RIO DE JANEIRO， Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Brazil's women's basketball team warmed up for the upcoming Rio Olympic Games with a 73-66 victory over China here on Wednesday.
The game was played behind closed doors at the Athlete Park of the Games with a few Chinese and Brazilian press watching from the stands. It was more like a training session with only one referee officiating.
The Chinese girls arrived here on Tuesday after completing their week-long training session at Miami， the United States.
"Certainly traveling is hard. Trying to find some hot water and shower yesterday (were) not easy，" Chinese head coach Tom Maher said. "I think to play your first game， you've got be confident， to be close to your best. Some of the players didn't play well today. I mean terrible."
China faces Canada， the United States， Senegal， Serbia and Spain in Group B of the preliminary round， which gets underway on August 6.
"People say we are favorites against African teams. That means it's a crucial game against Canada (because) three other teams are harder. We haven't beaten Canada for a few years. The results are against us. But we're closer and closer， and hopeful we can make that step in the first game，" Maher added.
China will face Canada in the opener on Saturday. They lost all three matches against Canada in a warmup tour last month.
"Canada are better than us athletically， but we are confident，" China's defender Shao Tingting said.
"We know them very well and we know what we've got to do on the court. They didn't intimadate us， though we lost in the warmups. We are ready for every opponent."
BEIJING Cheap Air Max 2018 Outlet , March 23 (Xinhua) -- China, already a world power in summer sports, has set off on an ambitious "Long March" - getting 300 million people involved in skiing and skating events, as promised in Beijing's bid file for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
"We believe the Winter Olympics bid could boost participation and involvement in winter sports across China," said Liu Peng Cheap Air Max Outlet , head of the Chinese Olympic Committee.
"The fast development of winter sports may also change the lifestyle of millions of Chinese and help them live a healthier and more enjoyable life."
Winter sports have been popular in cold northeastern Chinese provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin and Liaoning. A traditional project titled "Take Millions of Teenagers to Ice and Snow" has been organized for decades and International Olympic Committee member Yang Yang was one of the beneficiaries.
"Thanks to this project, I had the chance to learn to skate at school over 30 years ago," said Yang, who was born in Qitaihe Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 Shoes , a small town in Heilongjiang.
Yang started to learn skating at the age of eight and was selected to the national team in 1995. She won China's first ever Winter Olympic gold medal at the Salt Lake City Games in 2002.
Now Yang runs a skating rink in Shanghai, a southeastern metropolis over 1,000 kilometers south of her hometown. It was impossible to find a place for skating in Shanghai in the past but the Chinese commercial center has nine skating rinks now.
"I am delighted to see that skating is getting more and more popular in Shanghai," Yang said. "Our rink receives 400 to 500 skaters per day on the weekend and I found the attendance quite satisfactory."
"Students from 14 schools have started to take skating classes at our rink since March, which means we will have 2 Cheap Nike Air Max 2018 Shoes ,000 kids learning skating here this semester," she added.
Yang is confident that the objective of attracting 300 million Chinese people to winter sports will be achieved.
"I don't see why not," she said. "When we talk about the Winter Olympics, we are not only talking about Beijing, but also the rest of China. Taking into account the rapid development of winter sports in Shanghai Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes , Guangdong, Nanjing, I believe we can make it."
Yao Ming, the former NBA star who has been named a promotion ambassador of the Beijing 2022 bid, agreed.
"There are quite a lot of winter sports enthusiasts in south China Cheap Air Max 2017 Shoes ," he said.
"The Winter Olympic Games not only promote winter sports, but also offer us great opportunities to enjoy life and have some leisure. I think more and more Chinese would like to get out of crowded cities and enjoy outdoor sports like most of the winter events," he added.
Yao's four-year-old daughter has already taken a few practices at local rinks.
"I have taken her to figure skating shows quite a few times and she seems to like it," Yao said.
According to the Chinese Skiing Association (CSA), ski resorts across China received 3 million domestic visits in the 2013-2014 season Cheap Air Max 2018 Shoes , up from merely 10,000 for the 1995-1996 season.
"If we assume that a skier goes skiing 2.5 times per winter, there should be approximately one million skiers all over China," a CAS official said.
"Skiing is no doubt getting more and more popular in China, but the amount of people involved is still small compared to sports like football and basketball. We need to work hard over the next years."
RIO DE JANEIRO Cheap Air Max Shoes , Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Brazilian government has backed a plan to dock points from teams whose fans are found guilty of violent behaviors.
The proposal was raised by the National Sports Council (CNE), an arm of the sports ministry, on Thursday in response to a stadium riot that halted a Brazilian league match for an hour on Sunday.
"The idea of stripping teams of points is a good one," sports minister Aldo Rebelo told reporters.
"A club prefers to pay three million reais (about 1.2 million U.S. dollars) than lose three league points. Clubs can always find ways to get money but you cannot get points back," he said.
According to the CNE Cheap Nike Air Max 2017 Online , the proposal could be approved before the 2014 Campeonato Brasileiro season.
Meanwhile three fans have been charged with attempted homicide for their role in Su.
