Duke Dawson Jersey

The International Olympic Committee will discuss a proposal by Japan and other countries to reinstate baseball and softball in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo Jessie Bates Jersey , its new chief said Wednesday.


"I'm personally open for more flexibility in the programme of the Olympic Games," said Thomas Bach, who succeeded Jacques Rogge as IOC president in September when Tokyo was chosen over Madrid and Istanbul to host the 2020 summer Games.


"But I still have to see what my colleagues in the IOC are thinking about this."


There must also be consultations with the international federation, he said, referring to the World Baseball and Softball Confederation.


The question of which sports will be contested should be decided seven years before an Olympics.


"So we'll have this form of discussion in the next couple of months James Washington Jersey ," added Bach, who was visiting Tokyo to muster support from political and business circles for the 2020 Games.


The former Olympic and world fencing champion from Germany said the issue would be discussed by the IOC executive board on December 4, and by the full IOC membership in the Russian resort of Sochi in February, when the winter Games are staged there.


A total of 28 sports have been selected for the 2020 summer Games after the IOC reinstated wrestling on September 7. It beat out baseball and softball -- packaged as one sport -- and squash.


Baseball, passionately followed in Japan as the king of sports James Daniels Jersey , and its sibling softball were dropped from the 2012 London Games by the IOC, which cited their lack of global appeal among other reasons.


A fixed Olympic programme can be changed only if the IOC executive board proposes an amendment and the IOC general assembly approves it.


Bach said the IOC would also have to modify the seven-year rule.


Before his arrival in Tokyo this week, an IOC mission held a seminar there to advise on preparations.


Tokyo is due to set up its organising committee in February.


"Having seen Japanese society really being united in this bid, we are sure that this unity will continue and ensure brilliant Games in 2020," Bach said.

History of Ping Pong

Ping pong was introduced to the United States when Parker Brothers bought the trademarked name from English manufacturer J. Jaques & Son Ltd. after 1901. The name 'Ping Pong' was used to describe the English game of table tennis when it was played with high-end Jaire Alexander Jersey , Jaques-branded equipment.

Today, however, the sport is officially recognized as table tennis; only those who play at the hobby-level use the term 'ping pong.' The sport of table tennis is governed by the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF).

Ping Pong Table and Balls

Ping pong is played on a table that measures 9' long x 5' wide x 30' high. A net measuring 6 inches high divides the table into two halves and extends over each edge of the table by 6 inches. Two or four players use paddles to hit a ball back and forth to each other, also known as a 'rally.'

The balls used for official tournaments now measure 40mm in diameter, are made of celluloid and weigh 2.7 grams. 38mm balls were once the standard Isaiah Wynn Jersey , but that changed after the 2000 Olympics. 40mm balls are slower and spin less. It has been suggested that the move to the larger ball was due, in part, to being able to market table tennis matches for television. 40mm balls show up better onscreen, and the slower balls encourage a longer rally, which keeps the viewer interested in the game play.

The highest quality ping pong balls have a three-star rating Isaiah Oliver Jersey , which represents consistency in relation to their bounce and roundness. A quality 40mm ball, when dropped from a height of 30cm (roughly 12'), will bounce 23cm high.

Ping Pong Paddles

The sport of table tennis uses paddles to hit the ball. In Europe they are called bats, and the ITTF refers to them as rackets. Although there are no official rules governing a paddle's size, shape or weight Hayden Hurst Jersey , it must be flat, rigid and covered in an approved rubber. The thickness of the rubber and adhesive must not exceed 2mm, and the paddle must be colored black on one side and red on the other.

The rubber's surface may be 'pimpled' (pimples facing out) or 'sandwiched' (pimples facing inward), but the pimples' density may not be less than 10 per square centimeter or more than 30 per square centimeter.

Most of the paddle (85%) must be made of natural wood. However, the paddle can be reinforced with a layer of carbon fiber Harold Landry Jersey , glass fiber or compressed paper as long as that layer is between the blade and the rubber surface. Some newer paddles may even be reinforced with aluminum or titanium.

With different rubbers on a paddle, the types and speed of spins can be changed during game play. Often a player will use a paddle that will produce great spin on the ball on one side, and the other side will create little to no spin.

Typically, the forehand side of a paddle is the attacking side, and the rubber used here creates a lot of spin. It is common to find sandwiched rubber on the attacking side because the inward-facing pimples Frank Ragnow Jersey , coupled with a smooth striking surface, allows the ball to sink more into the paddle, thus creating a larger area of contact and more spin.

The backhand side of the paddle is the defensive side, and the rubber used here should nullify the ball's spin coming from an opponent's hit. Pimpled rubber, with longer outward-facing 'pips' Duke Dawson Jersey , is commonly used for backhand, defensive strokes or chops.

Ping pong is a fast game. Skilled players with good equipment can serve a ball 70 mph. Table tennis officially became part of the Summer Olympics in 1988, and since then the game has seen some interesting technological advances, especially for training purposes.
