MILAN Jarrad Davis Jersey , Italy, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- The International Olympic Committee (IOC)'s choice to award the 2022 Winter Olympics to Beijing was a very good one for the promotion of winter sports in the world, Italian sports officials said congratulating China for last week's victory.

"This is a decision that consigns Beijing to the history books," the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) President Giovanni Malago told Xinhua.

"Beijing will be the first city to organize the Winter Olympic Games after hosting the Summer ones in 2008. This had never happened before and certifies, once more, the exceptional result achieved in the 2008 edition in terms of hospitality and efficiency," he said.

Such a result, Malago went on saying, was reached thanks to "an authentic passion for sports and the desire to leave another indelible mark Kerryon Johnson Jersey , in compliance with the Olympic Agenda 2020 new principles." In fact the 2022 Games, he underlined, pledge to be the first driven by total sustainability and transparency, low costs and focus on legacy.

"Congratulations to the Chinese Olympic Committee (COC) and the bid committee, which brought forward the application with ability, style and effectiveness," Malago said.

"I did not expect this news, but when I saw it, being a mountain man I thought it was a beautiful promotion of winter sports Frank Ragnow Jersey ," said Valter Marin, President of the March 20 Foundation, which manages all facilities of the Turin 2006 Olympic park, and Mayor of Sestriere - a renowned ski resort near Turin and the highest municipality in Italy at 2,035 meters above the sea level.

"The 2006 Turin Games marked a turning point in Winter Olympics that for the first time were held in a large city with its surrounding valleys. Vancouver 2010 in Canada and Sochi 2014 in Russia replicated this model, and Beijing will do the same," he added.

Marin observed that many inhabitants of metropolises in the world are not used to winter sports. "Millions of people who might have never approached a winter sport will be encouraged to try thanks to the Beijing Winter Olympics," he said.

"I am sure that Beijing has all the means to do an excellent job," he added.

Based on his own experience Cheap Detroit Lions Hats , he wished that Beijing will also make good use of Olympics facilities in the future. "We are still using almost all of Turin facilities, some for sports activities and other for conferences, fairs and concerts," he said.

Marin, who is also an architect, explained to Xinhua that an objective for next year, the 10th anniversary of the 2006 Turin event, is cutting facilities running costs by 50 percent. In fact the legacy of an Olympics is as much as important as the Olympics themselves, he pointed out.

Sergio Anesi Cheap Detroit Lions T-Shirts , President of the Organizing Committee of the Winter Universiade which run in Italy's Trentino northern region in 2013 and a member of the CONI Executive Committee, said he did expect Beijing to win the 2022 Winter Olympics for various reasons, including China' s economic capacity and experience in the organization of big events.

"I believe China has a strong expertise behind and will be able to offer an extraordinary Olympics," he said.

Anesi said he also hopes that the 2022 Games will be "more human," that is to say more focused on athletes than on technology. "When the Olympics are awarded, the main objective is always promotion of sports in the world," he said.

That is why, Anesi went on saying, it is fundamental that facilities continue to be used for sports activities also in the future as happened in Trentino and not partly adapted to host events of a totally different scope Cheap Detroit Lions Hoodie , as unfortunately happened in Turin.

His personal wish for Beijing was that the Chinese capital will be able to "fully embody this spirit of the Olympic Games and deliver it to the world as the best promotion of sports as an instrument of health, well-being and quality of life for all citizens."


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences continues to make strides to diversify its membership, and 2017’s invites to film professionals to join the Academy surpasses last year’s record with a whopping 774 potential new members.

Ever since the #OscarsSoWhite fiasco, outgoing Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs has taken serious strides to invite a more dynamic range of professionals to join the Academy and vote in the Oscars. Just a couple years of this resulted, in my estimation, in some serious surprises at this past Oscars where every prognosticator’s ballot died a firey death. Long-held traditions and bellwethers fell as the Academy members seemed to be voting more from the heart rather than following the same old pattern.

From 2015 to 2017 alone there has been a 359% increase in women invited to join the Academy and a 331% increase in people of color, and this year’s new class is 39% female and 30% persons of color. Seven branches invited more women than men, including the actors, executives Customized Detroit Lions Jersey , and film editors.

This year’s new invitees (and yes it should be noted that we can’t fully say these are Academy members yet, because not everyone accepts the invite) are wildly exciting. From the Actors branch we’ve got folks like Riz Ahmed, Gal Gadot, Rebecca Ferguson, John Cho, Terry Crews, Warwick Davis, Donald Glover, Adam Driver Cheap Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , Priyanka Chopra, Armie Hammer, Jon Hamm, Naomie Harris, Dwayne Johnson, Keegan-Michael Key, Amy Poehler, Channing Tatum, Mary Elizabeth Winstead Sam Martin Lions Jersey , Kristen Stewart, Janelle Monae, Ruth Negga, Margot Robbie, and married couple Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. Indeed, between Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans Glover Quin Lions Jersey , and Aaron Taylor-Johnson the Marvel Cinematic Universe is well represented in this new 2017 class.

There’s plenty of exciting additions elsewhere. Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and Jordan Peele (Get Out) are being invited to both the Directors and Writers branches, while the Direct.
