In 2020, the Olympic Games being held in Tokyo, Japan, is going to be the first games to include the sport of rock climbing; after insistently pushing for its inclusion, the International Federation of Sport Climbing got its wish granted. Frank can't wait to watch it in a couple of summers. He loves watch almost any event they have. #olympic #olympics #olympicgames #olympics2020 #tokyo #japan #tokyojapan #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #ifsc #internationalfederationofsportclimbing #wish #granted #blessed #summer #summergames #summerolympics #summerolympicgames #event #events #funfacts #cactus

50 years ago, the 1968 Olympics Black Power Salute was a political demonstration conducted by African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during their medal ceremony at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, Mexico. The black athletes wore various attires that represented black poverty, black pride, solidarity for American blue-collar workers and for African-Americans who were tragic victims of mob violence and the Middle Passage. After winning gold and bronze medals in the 200-meter running event, they turned on the podium to face their flags in hearing the American national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner". The black athletes raised their black-gloved fists, and kept them raised until the anthem had finished. In addition, Tommie Smith, John Carlos and even Australian silver medalist Peter Norman all wore human rights badges on their jackets. Describing the "Black Power Salute" as a "human rights salute, the event is regarded as one of the most overtly political statements in the history of the modern Olympic Games. It became an symbolic moment in the history of the Black Power movement. The moral message behind this is you have to use your brain and follow your heart in standing up for what you believe and know what's right. Salute to African-American Olympic athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos for breaking down racial barriers, proving the impossible is possible, and you can do anything that you can set your mind to do, no matter what the color of your skin is. Black excellence at it's finest. RIP Australian Olympic athlete Peter Norman, the man who supported Tommie Smith and John Carlos for their famous raised-fist salute at the 1968 Olympics medal ceremony!

For those who don't know, Wilma Rudolph was a sprinter, Olympic champion and international sports icon in track and field who competed in 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia and the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, Italy. She performed in the Summer Olympics despite wearing a brace for her twisted leg and suffering from various childhood illness symptoms. Wilma Rudolph competed in the 200-meter dash and won a bronze medal in the 4 × 100-meter relay at the 1956 Summer Olympics. Wilma Rudolph was also being the first African-American female athlete to win three Olympic gold medals in the 100- and 200-meter individual events and the 4 x 100-meter relay at the 1960 Summer Olympics. Forgotten African-American history for the world to know. Salute to Wilma Rudolph for breaking down racial barriers, proving the impossible is possible, and you can do anything that you can set your mind to do; no matter your circumstances, the color of your skin, or your gender. RIP Wilma Rudolph, the greatest African-American Olympic gold medalist of all time! #wilmarudolph #olympicgames #blackhistorymonth #africanamericans #motivation #inspiration #blackhistory #africanamericanhistory #historylesson #blackexcellence #olympicshistory #olympicgoldmedalist #africanamericancivilrights #civilrights #motivation #nevergiveup #neversaynever #youneverknow #godspurpose #godswill #ESPN #godscalling #godsplan #summerolympicgames #summerolympics

Soviet ruines in Tallinn
We have been wondering, what was hidden under the series of stairs on the bank of the sea just few meters by foot from our apartment ? 🙄🌊
A vast abandoned concert hall overlooking the Baltic Sea, it is a familiar, if not necessarily pleasant, sight to tourists and locals alike. There is no access into the building, but you can walk around the cultural center– and, indeed, on the roof top as well too.

Originally named Vladimir Ilitch Lenin Palace of Culture and Sport, Linnahall was built as a venue to stage sailing events connected with the 22nd Moscow Summer Olympic Games in 1980!! Is that make sense to you?

The maritime task fell on the capital of the Estonian SSR for the simple reason that Moscow, an inland city, had no access to sea.

Among the different spaces that constitute Linnahall are a 3000-seat ice rink and a 4800-seat transforming concert arena, the latter of which was inspired by Greek amphitheaters.
As for the exterior, architects Raine Karp and Riina Altmäe opted for a low design and sloping side walls to have the bridge between the sea and the land and not destroy the landscape of the old town city.

Enjoy with us!!! #linnahall #tallinn
