|BEIJING Jose Fernando Cuadrado Colombia Jersey , Aug. 11 (Xinhua) -- China has fielded a 123-strong team to the Nanjing 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will start in Nanjing, eastern China's Jiangsu Province on Aug. 16.
Comparable to the program settings of the London Olympic Games and the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, the Nanjing Youth Olympics will feature 28 sports - adding golf and rugby events - and 222 events attracting a total of 3 Jefferson Lerma Colombia Jersey ,868 athletes, 282 more than the last edition.
""Our goals at the Youth Olympcis are different from those for the Olympics. The point of the Youth Games is to promote Olympic spirit and help young people build a healthy life style,"" said chef de mission Xiao Tian on Monday.
As a major event for young people, the YOG has actively tried to distinguish itself from the Olympic Games in terms of the program settings. Inline skating James Rodriguez Colombia Jersey , skateboarding and rock climbing have been included as the showcase sports. Besides, Wushu (Chinese martial arts) was selected as the cultural and educational activity.
""I expect to perform to my best at the Games, but I don't want to push myself too hard by setting some goal for the event,"" said Lin Guipu Giovanni Moreno Colombia Jersey , a 17-year-old rising badminton star.
""It doesn't matter I win or lose a match, I just want to play my game and show what I have.""
As a gathering of the youth from around the world, YOG has evolved not only as a sporting event, but a platform for cultural and educational campaigns.
Lin Frank Fabra Colombia Jersey , who has been called to the national team and crowned at the world youth championships this year, said he hopes to make more friends at the upcoming event.
""I was at the Asian Youth Games in Nanjing last year, and I won the gold medal. I also made some friends there. I think communication is also important at this stage. This time at the YOG, we will have more rest time Felipe Pardo Colombia Jersey , so I and my young friends will be staying together much longer, hopefuly we can learn more from each other,"" added Lin.
The Youth Olympics is a sporting event tailor-made for today's youth of the world. In 2001, the Youth Olympics were proposed by Jacques Rogge Farid Diaz Colombia Jersey , former President of the International Olympic Committee. Singapore held the inaugural Youth Olympics in 2010. The second Summer Youth Olympic Games will be held in Nanjing from Aug. 16-28.
China sent 68 athletes to the Singapore Youth Olympics, winning 30 gold, 16 silver and 5 bronze medals.
HARARE， Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- The Warriors of Zimbabwe face a stern test Monday when they face Tunisia in a must-win 2017 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group B qualifier in Libreville， Gabon， where a draw or defeat will condemn them to elimination from the football tournament.
After drawing 2-2 with Algeria in their first game on Jan. 15， the Warriors went on to lose 2-0 four days later to top seeds Senegal who have since qualified for the last eight with a game to spare and have amassed six points.
Tunisia are sitting on three points after beating Algeria and a draw with the Warriors - who are currently anchored at the bottom of the log on one point together with Algeria - may see them through to the quarter finals if Algeria draw with Senegal.
An unlikely win by Algeria over Senegal will take their tally to four points， the same with Tunisia if they draw with the Warriors and then the second qualifier in the group will have to be determined by goal difference.
Wins by Algeria and the Warriors will also leave the other qualifying team in the group going through on goal difference， thus the Warriors are not only hoping to win against Tunisia， but also praying that the already qualified Senegal will still field a team that is strong enough to defeat or draw with Algeria.
Although the loss to Senegal left many fans befuddled， there are still some who believe in the miracle that took the Warriors to the finals in Gabon after overcoming various impediments， including shambolic travel arrangements， during the preliminary qualifiers to Malawi， Swaziland and Guinea.
Coach Callisto Pasuwa also believes in his charges and has told local media that ""we are still favorites"" to proceed to the next round.
The Warriors have been buoyed by news that top marksman Knowledge Musona， who limped off the pitch in the early stages of the match with Algeria with a hamstring injury， has recovered and will feature in Monday's match.
Captain Willard Katsande told The Herald newspaper that they had recovered from their loss to Senegal and raring to go.
""We went back to the drawing board after that defeat. We have recovered and now we are ready for the fight，"" he said. Enditem
