THE LIFE OF FABIO COENTRAO
• Fábio Alexandre da Silva Coentrão (born 11 March 1988) Coentrão joined hometown Rio Ave F.C. in 2004 at the age of 16, playing three first division games in the following season for a northern side that would be relegated from the top division. In 2006–07, he established himself as first-choice, as Rio Ave barely missed promotion back and had a good run in the Cup of Portugal, ended by Sporting Clube de Portugal with a 2–1 win in Lisbon, with Coentrão scoring Rio Ave's goal, from 30 metres out; whilst playing for the Vila do Conde team, he earned the nickname "Figo das Caxinas." • After that season, where he was voted the divisions' Breakthrough Player of the Year, many clubs showed interest in Coentrão, most notably Sporting Clube de Portugal and S.L. Benfica, with Coentrão choosing theEncarnados (reds) on July 2007. His playing style was likened to that of Arjen Robben by World Soccer Magazine in their 50 World Talents 2007 issue.

TABLE TENNİS Thrown the ball back and forth to each other as 2 or 4 players on the table in the middle of a game played with the network. Table tennis is played at Robert College in Turkey, is known to begin after the first as the 1920s. Then the sport began to spread, especially in Istanbul, including all the dorms. In fact, the first tournament was held in Istanbul Sports Club, the Golden Horde. In 1930, the first in Istanbul and Liverpool FootballClub Championship held at the same time that Raşit Beyİstanbulsporlu swimmer and boxer, defeating his opponentyellowblue club Semih Duransoy'u this branch to be known asthe first champion.

Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock (also known as a shuttle, bird, or birdy) with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents' half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor.
The shuttlecock (or shuttle) is a feathered projectile whose unique aerodynamic properties cause it to fly differently from the balls used in most racquet sports; in particular, the feathers create much higher drag, causing the shuttlecock to decelerate more rapidly than a ball. Shuttlecocks have a much higher top speed, when compared to other racquet sports. Because shuttlecock flight is affected by wind, competitive badminton is played indoors. Badminton is also played outdoors as a casual recreational activity, often as a garden or beach game.
The court is rectangular and divided into halves by a net. Courts are usually marked for both singles and doubles play, although the laws permit a court to be marked for singles only. The doubles court is wider than the singles court, but both are the same length. The exception, which often causes confusion to newer players, is that the doubles court has a shorter serve-length dimension. The full width of the court is 6.1 metres (20 ft), and in singles this width is reduced to 5.18 metres (17 ft). The full length of the court is 13.4 metres (44 ft). The service courts are marked by a centre line dividing the width of the court, by a short service line at a distance of 1.98 metres (6 ft 6 inch) from the net, and by the outer side and back boundaries. In doubles, the service court is also marked by a long service line, which is 0.76 metres (2 ft 6 inch) from the back boundary. The net is 1.55 metres (5 ft 1 inch) high at the edges and 1.524 metres (5 ft) high in the centre. The net posts are placed over the doubles sidelines, even when singles is played.
Each game is played to 21 points, with players scoring a point whenever they win a rally regardless of whether they served (this differs from the old system where players could only win a point on their serve and each game was played to 15 points). A match is the best of three games. At the start of the rally, the server and receiver stand in diagonally opposite service courts (see court dimensions). The server hits the shuttlecock so that it would land in the receiver's service court. This is similar to tennis, except that a badminton serve must be hit below waist height and with the racquet shaft pointing downwards, the shuttlecock is not allowed to bounce and in badminton, the players stand inside their service courts unlike tennis. When the serving side loses a rally, the serve immediately passes to their opponent(s) (this differs from the old system where sometimes the serve passes to the doubles partner for what is known as a "second serve").
In singles, the server stands in her/his right service court when her/his score is even, and in her/his left service court when her/his score is odd. In doubles, if the serving side wins a rally, the same player continues to serve, but he/she changes service courts so that she/he serves to a different opponent each time. If the opponents win the rally and their new score is even, the player in the right service court serves; if odd, the player in the left service court serves. The players' service courts are determined by their positions at the start of the previous rally, not by where they were standing at the end of the rally. A consequence of this system is that, each time a side regains the service, the server will be the player who did not serve last time.
Since 1992, badminton has been an Olympic sport with five events: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles, in which each pair consists of a man and a woman. At high levels of play, the sport demands excellent fitness: players require aerobic stamina, agility, strength, speed and precision. It is also a technical sport, requiring good motor coordination and the development of sophisticated racquet movements
Billiards, Pool or Snooker
The Differences between Straight Billiards, Three-cushion Billiards, Eightball (US) Pool, Eight-ball (UK) Pool, Nine-ball Pool and Snooker
There are two main varieties of billiard games: carom and pocket. The main carom billiards games are straight billiards, balkline and three cushion billiards. All are played on a pocketless table with three balls; two cue balls and one object ball. In all, players shoot a cue ball so that it makes contact with the opponent's cue ball as well as the object ball. The most popular of the large variety of pocket games are eight-ball, nineball, one-pocket, bank pool, snooker and, among the old guard, straight pool. In eight-ball and nine-ball the object is to sink object balls until one can legally pocket the winning eponymous "money ball"
Straight (Rail) Billiards
In straight rail, a player scores a point and may continue shooting each time his cue ball makes contact with both other balls. Although a difficult and subtle game, some of the best players of straight billiards developed the skill to gather the balls in a corner or along the same rail for the purpose of playing a series of nurse shots to score a seemingly limitless number of points. The first straight rail professional tournament was held in 1879 where Jacob Schaefer, Sr. scored 690 points in a single turn (that is, 690 separate strokes without a miss). With the balls repetitively hit and barely moving in endless "nursing", there was little for the fans to watch
A more elegant solution was three-cushion billiards, which World Top Ten 3 Cushion requires a player to make contact with the other two balls Billiards players on the table and contact three rail cushions in the process. 1 Blomdahl, Sweden Torbjorn This is difficult enough that even the best players can only 2 Jaspers, Dick Netherlands manage to average one to two points per turn

Eight-ball (US) Pool
Eight-ball is played with sixteen balls: a cue ball, and fifteen object balls consisting of seven striped balls, seven solid-colored balls and the black 8 ball. After the balls are scattered with a break shot, the players are assigned either the group of solid balls or the stripes once a ball from a particular group is legally pocketed. The ultimate object of the game is to legally pocket the eight ball in a called pocket, which can only be done after all of the balls from a player's assigned group have been cleared from the table.
Eight-ball (UK) Pool
English UK pool is played with smaller balls into smaller pockets than American pool: American Pool 2 1/4" balls British Pool 2" balls and 3" pockets There are also differences in the shape of the cushions for American and British pool, this will effect how the balls bounce off the cushions. English UK pool is normally played with red/yellow object balls as opposed to stripes/solids There are also some differences within the rules but they can vary from location to location.
Any of the following results in a game win: A player legally pockets the 8 ball into a designated pocket, after all of that player's object balls have been pocketed The opposing player illegally pockets the 8 ball (e.g. before clearing all of that player's object balls, does so on the same shot as the last such object ball, or the 8 falls into a pocket other than the one that was designated) The opposing player knocks the 8 ball off the table. The opposing player commits any foul, including scratching the cue ball into a pocket, or knocking it off the table, in the course of a shot that pockets the 8 ball. (As noted above, a scratch or other foul while shooting for the 8 ball is not a loss of the game if the 8 is not pocketed or jumped from the table.)
Nine-ball uses only the 1 through 9 balls and cue ball. It is a rotation game: The player at the table must make legal contact with the lowest numbered ball on the table or a foul is called. The game is won by legally pocketing the nine ball. Nine-ball is the predominant professional game, though as of 2006–2008 there have been some suggestions that this may change, in favor of ten-ball. There are many local and regional tours and tournaments that are contested with nine-ball. The World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA), and it American affiliate the Billiard Congress of America (BCA), publish the World Standardized Rules. The European professional circuit has instituted rules changes, especially to make it more difficult to achieve a legal break shot. The largest nine-ball tournaments are the independent US Open Nine-ball Championship and the WPA World Nine-ball Championship for men and women. Male professionals have a rather fragmented schedule of professional nine-ball tournaments. The United States Professional Pool Players Association (UPA) has been the most dominant association of the 1990s and 2000s. A hotly contested event is the annual Mosconi Cup, which pits invitational European and US teams against each other in one-on-one and scotch doubles nine-ball matches over a period of several days. The Mosconi Cup games are played under the more stringent European rules, as of 2007.

Snooker is a cue sport that is played on a large green baize-covered table with pockets in each of the four corners and in the middle of each of the long side cushions. A regular (full-size) table is 12 × 6 ft (3.7 × 1.8 m). It is played using a cue and snooker balls: one white cue ball, 15 red balls worth one point each, and six balls of different colours: yellow (2 points), green (3), brown (4), blue (5), pink (6) and black (7). A player (or team) wins a frame (individual game) of snooker by scoring more points than the opponent(s), using the cue ball to pot the red and coloured balls. A player wins a match when a certain number of frames have been won.
Snooker, popular in many of the Englishspeaking and Commonwealth countries, with top professional players attaining multimillion pound career earnings from the game. The sport is particularly and increasingly popular in China
Mahjong is a game that originated in China, commonly played by four players (with some three-player variations found in Korea and Japan). The four player table version should not be confused with the popular western single player (tile matching) computer game (Mahjong solitaire) which is a recent invention and completely different from the table game. Mahjong is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a certain degree of chance. In Asia, mahjong is also popularly played as a gambling game (though it may just as easily be played recreationally).
The game is played with a set of 152 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols, although some regional variations use a different number of tiles. In most variations, each player begins by receiving thirteen tiles. In turn players draw and discard tiles until they complete a legal hand using the fourteenth drawn tile to form four groups (melds) and a pair (head). There are fairly standard rules about how a piece is drawn, stolen from another player (melded), the use of basic (numbered tiles) and honours (winds and dragons), the kinds of melds, and the order of dealing and play. However there are many regional variations in the rules; in addition, the scoring system, the minimum hand necessary to win varies significantly based on the local rules being used.
The circle suit is represented by a series of circles. The character suit , more appropriately know as the WAN Tiles is represented by Chinese characters.
The bamboo suit , with the exception of the 1 Bamboo, which is represented by a bird, is represented by outlines of sticks.
There are two different honour suits: the winds and the dragons. The winds are east, south, west and north, and the dragons are Red, Green and White. They have no numerical sequence and there are four tiles of each honour (e.g. four Red Dragon tiles).
The East, South, West and North
The Red, Green and White Dragons
There are eight bonus tiles: four flowers and four seasons. The flowers are plum, orchid, chrysanthemum and bamboo, and the seasons are spring, summer, autumn and winter.
The four flowers (there is only one of each)
The four seasons (there is only one of each)
Mahjong is played with a set of mahjong tiles (though cards may be used). Sets often include counters (to keep score), dice (to decide how to deal) and a marker to show who is dealer and which round is being played. Some sets include racks to hold tiles (if they are shaped small or differently). A set of mahjong tiles will usually differ from place to place. It usually has at least 136 tiles (most commonly 144), although sets originating from America or Japan will have more. Mahjong tiles are split into these categories: suits, honour, and flowers.
Dealing tiles in Mahjong starts with the tiles being placed face down on the table and being shuffled. Once the tiles have been shuffled Each player begins seleting the appropriate number of tiles, creating two rows of tiles stacked two deep in front of them. The length of the row will depend on the number of tiles being used. Before the game can begin the dealer must throw three dice and add up their total. Starting with the dealer and counting clockwise a player's row is chosen. At the right edge of the players tiles the number of tiles equal to the dice totaled are counted out and shifted to the right. Each player takes 4 tiles to the left of the divided tiles which will leave each player with 12 tiles for a 13 tile variation and 16 tiles for a 16 tile variation of Mahjong. For the 13 tile variation of Mahjong each player will pick one more tile to bring their hand to 13 tiles.
Each player takes a turn picking up a tile from the wall and then discarding a tile by throwing it into the centre and announcing out loud what the piece is. Play continues this way until one player has a legal hand. At this point a player will call out mahjong and reveal their hand. There are four different ways that this order of play can be interrupted which is mentioned below. During play, the number of tiles maintained by each player should always be thirteen tiles (meaning in each turn a tile must be picked up and another discarded). Not included in the count of thirteen tiles are flowers and seasons set to the side and the fourth added piece of a kong (mentioned below). If a player is seen to have more or less that thirteen tiles in their hand outside of their turn they are penalised.
A winning hand consists of fourteen tiles (the thirteen tiles in the hand plus the additional tile picked up from the wall or stolen when a player discards a tile needed to complete a hand). The first is called winning from the wall, the second is called winning by a discard. The winning hand is made of four melds (a specific pattern of three pieces) and the eyes (a pair of two identical pieces).
Melds Pong is a set of three identical tiles. For example: Kong is a set of four identical tiles. For example:
Chow is a meld of three suited tiles in sequence. For example: Eyes, also known as a pair, are two identical tiles which are a component to the standard hand. The eyes cannot be declared or formed with a discard except if completing the pair completes the hand. For example:

The Chinese knew FENCING B.C and them had specialists for this sport.
But it was Spain where modern fencing was born in.
Fencing which is also known as modern fencing is a family of combat sports using bladed sports.Fencing is a very tiring spotr which requires mastery and calmness as well as strength and repeat the same attack and defense motions during training sessions for being the best.
Fencing is one of four sports which have been featured at every one of modern Olympic Games and divided in to three weapons. Foil:A light thrusting weapon that targets the torso,including the back,but not the arms. Sabre:A light cutting and thrusting weapon that targets the entire body above the wist,excluding the hands. Epee:A heavier thrusting weapon that targets the entire body.
Fencing was first played in 1890 but the Turkish Fencing Federation was founded in 1923.The Turkish fencers got their first and the most important success in Balkan Championships.In 1st. Balkan Fencing Championships 1 silver and 1 bronze medel were won by Turkish fencers.

Oil wrestling is a traditional Turkish sport. In fact it is Turkey’s national sport. The wrestlers wear leather or buffalo skin tight trousers.
The wrestlers are lubricated with olive oil. This makes it difficult to grip and hold your opponent, because of this, oil wrestling is a sport that requires great strength and skill.
Techniques and rules of Turkish style wrestling began taking form in Central Asia in early Middle Ages. After conquest of Anatolia by Seljuk Turks, they brought their traditional freestyle wrestling called "karakucak" and the special leather clothing and initiated usage of olive oil, to make it harder to grap the opponent, and created what is today known as the Yağlı Güreş or Turkish Oil Wrestling.
Today, oil wrestling in our country is featured at weddings, fairs and military shows and is a break the usual forms of entertainment
Each year, in June, at the historic district of Edirne they hold the annual wrestling event called Kırkpınar, it is the oldest continuing sporting event in the world. Almost 1,000 entrants from throughout Turkey compete in a three-day elimination tournament. The year 1360 is adapted by the organizers of the Edirne Kırkpınar as the date Ottoman soldiers started to organize annual oil-wrestling tournaments in Kırkpınar and it is held to commemorate the heroism of the conquering warriors
The Turkish men, women and children all like wrestling. The wrestler is a spiritual warrior nad people respect them . Love and respect is felt for the wrestlers. Wrestlers are ablebodied men, and the sport improves body structure and muscles, making them healthy-looking people. Wrestlers are heroes, they are true and brave. Wrestling events outside of the palace during the Ottoman period were held at: fairgrounds, weddings, for the benefit of a charitable organization or private individuals. In addition, at weddings and events held in the name of Ramadan.
There are thirteen categories, each with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner:
•(1) Baş Pehlivan (chief wrestler) •(2) Başaltı (under chief) •(3) Bűyűk Orta (big medium) •(4) K. Orta Bűyűk Boy (small medium big size) •(5) K. Orta Kűçűk Boy (small medium small size) •(6) Deste Bűyűk Boy (supporting big size) •(7) Deste O. Boy supporting medium size) •(8) Deste Kűçűk Boy (supporting small size) •(9) Toz Koparan (“kickers up of the dust”) •(10) Tesvik (“encourager”) •(11) Minik-2 (“small and sweet 2”) •(12) Minik-1 (“small and sweet 1”) •(13) En Iyi Peşrev (best beginner).
Until 1975, there was no time limit to wrestling in Kırkpınar. The pehlivans would wrestle sometimes one, sometimes two days, until they could establish superiority to one another. Wrestling games would go on from 9am in the morning until dusk and the ones that could not beat each other would go on the next day. After 1975, wrestling was limited to 40 minutes in başpehlivan category. If there is no winner within these limits, the pehlivans wrestle for 15 minutes with scored recorded. The ones that can score points in this last period are accepted as the winners. In other categories, the wrestling time is limited to 30 minutes. If there is no winner, 10 minutes of score wrestling follows.
How a Winner is Decided
(1) The “crush.” A fighter may maneuver his opponent onto his stomach and then trap him by sprawling on top. If he can keep him down with his face buried in the grass he can then turn his exhausted opponent with a half-nelson for a pin. This is a dangerous move, and the referee monitors closely to see that the bottom man is not suffocated. If the “crusher” is not successful after a given period the referee has them begin again from a standing position. (2) Submission. Occasionally the match under a hot summer sun is so long and arduous that one fighter will simply signal his submission to the referee.
(3) Since a wrestler is not restricted from placing his hands inside his opponent’s kispet (he may not grab his balls or invade his rectum, however), he can also use the waistband to hold the other man in place. Occasionally the kispet is yanked so far below his hips that the fighter being held cannot rise without exposing himself. Having lost his trunks he also loses the match. (4) If a fighter is able to lift his opponent entirely off the ground and carry him five paces in any direction, that is a “carrying” pin. (5) A running “flip” is sometimes employed, in which the wrestler causes both his opponent and himself to expose their navels during the roll. The loser is the one whose navel is first to be exposed. Unless the initiator of this move is careful, he may find himself the loser even though he was the “flipper.”
Have you always wanted
to slide gracefully over the ice without falling on your back? Do you find yourself doing a split every time you hit the ice? Here's how to ice skate like a professional. Just keep in mind it takes a lot of practice and won't happen over night.
Find good skates. Skates should be fitted for comfort and
are available in most shoe sizes. It's a good idea to measure both feet as one foot can be bigger than the other. Also, measure the width of your foot while sitting down. There are a number of good brands you can buy, but rentals are adequate for your first steps.
Try walking. Most skate rinks have rubber matting
you can walk on. Walk around to help maintain your center of gravity but remember to keep your skate guards on.
Get on the ice.
Walking around the edge of the rink while holding the wall will help you get a feel for the ice. The keys to skating well are relaxation and technique. Learning to walk will help give you ankle support and help you get used to the friction of the ice.
Learn to maintain your balance. Start by holding your
arms out at just below shoulder level to learn to balance yourself. Bend your knees slightly and lean forward, not back. Try not to hold onto anything. The wall can become a crutch.
Do squats. Stand up
straight, feet at hip distance, and arms in front of you. Now, squat slightly, just enough to find your center of balance, and repeat a few times until you feel comfortable. When you're ready, try squatting further down, just until you feel your knees bending. Keep your eyes looking forward at all times.
Practice falling. Falling is part of the sport so it's natural
that this will happen. If you anticipate the fall bend your knees and squat into a dip position. Otherwise, put your hands out to break your fall but quickly clench your fingers into a fist so that you don't run the risk of losing any fingers from a passing skater. Also, try to push your arms out so you will have a safer fall.
Practice standing up. Get on your hands and knees
and place one foot between your hands. Repeat with your other foot and lift up until you are standing again.
Move forward. Lean on your weak foot, then push in a
diagonal direction outwards with your strong foot. Pretend as though you're shoveling snow behind and to the right of you. This will propel you forward. Then bring the right foot back in next to the left and repeat the process. If you would like to glide point the toes out the way they are in for example right foot, point your right toes out. Now just make little loops with your foot or ride on an imaginary scooter that is on the ice.
Take longer strokes and try to glide. If you try to
give an extra flick of the toe/ankle at the end of each stroke, you will get more power and become a more efficient and faster skater. Bend your knees and move your body with the strokes.
Learn to stop. To stop, bend your knees slightly
inward and then push out with one or both of your feet. You should put a teensy bit of pressure on the ice so as your feet will not slide out from under you. When you stop, you should have created a little bit of "snow" that was sheered off from the ice. Don't worry if you don't get this at first, but try try again because you will get better.
OUR ANCESTRAL SPORT OIL WRESTLİNG
Oil Wrestling is one of the oldest Turkish national sport.It is so called because the wrestlers douse themselves with olive oil.The wrestlers,known as pehlivan wear kispet which is made of calfskin.Oil wrestling has been a kind of sport in which humen beings test their strength and selfconfidence.Since the ancient times irresistible wish of being survive has made human attack and sweep down on each other.In these harsh conditions physical strenght has always been the most important factor for the Turkish,oil wrestling is away of showing onê’s own strength and self-confidence and get them to respect.
Wrestling,which can be shown in different forms in every societies cultural life,has deep roots in the Turks sport tradition.Since Turks led a nomandic and semi-nomandic life in old times,it is very difficult to gain concrete documents about the place of wrestling in Turks lives and culture.
Meanwhile cognates forms of Turkish folk wrestling are found troughout Central Asia under the names Köraş,Kurash,etc.After the Oğuz branch of Turks migrated to Western Asia and Anatolia,they brought their Central Asian Kurash wrestling with them.After the conquest of Anatolia by Seljuk Turks,they introduced the tradional freestyle wrestling called Karakucak and its clothing and created what is known today Turkish Oil Wrestling.
