BEIJING Nike Air Max 95 Sale Outlet , Jan. 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Pigeon racing is again taking flight in China, after centuries of fluttering between being grounded and soaring.

The practice was banned as a "capitalist pastime" in China during the "cultural revolution" (1966-76) but made a comeback soon after. It went to greater heights during China's reform and opening-up in the 1980s, when there was an influx of foreign breeds in major Chinese cities.

However Nike Air Max Sale Outlet , although pigeon racing originated in the West, the sport has its own roots in China, where breeding is an ancient tradition.

According to historical records Air MAx 1 Sale Outlet , pigeons are among the country's first domesticated birds. People began raising them for entertainment in the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25-220). This continued during the Tang (AD 618-907) and Song (960-1279) dynasties, when the birds joined royal families' pet pools.

Some were trained to carry messages. They became the most reliable means of communication in ancient China because they could be easily trained to fly to a specific place.

People in today's Guangdong province began to use messenger pigeons in the Sui Dynasty (AD 581-618). The practice became more prevalent in the following Tang Dynasty. Emperor Li Shimin kept a messenger pigeon that flew 285 kilometers between Xi'an and Luoyang several times a week.

Pigeon racing is believed to have first taken off in China in Guangdong at the end of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

The earliest race recorded was in 1521. A man from Chaozhou in Guangdong bought a pair of purple-feather pigeons from Central China's Henan province and took them to various races.

The pigeons didn't let him down. He used the prize money to breed and sell more racing pigeons and became rich.

Guangdong Xin Yu (The Guangdong News Records) also states that a pigeon racing association was set up in Foshan in 1644. They ran races in which pigeons had to fly three journeys - a bit like a triathlon.

In the early years of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), pigeon racing became more common.

As the number of competitions increased Air Max 90 Sale Outlet , more breeds were created, greatly improving Chinese pigeons' traits. The best-known breeds then were the Chinese blue and pink-gray, and the Beijing dots. Pigeon fanciers in Europe and Japan began crossbreeding these with their own birds.

However Air Max 95 Sale Outlet , because private associations were banned in the mid- and late Qing Dynasty, racing organizations disbanded and the sport gradually faded. It was revived in the 1930s in Shanghai and Hangzhou, when the endemic Li and Yang species were used for racing. Pigeon associations returned Air Max Sale Outlet , and fanciers started introducing breeds from Europe, mostly from Belgium and Germany.

Following a hiatus during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45), the pursuit thrived again and - after some ups and downs - has reached new heights. Exchanges with pigeon breeders in the West are the most frequent in history.

The number of pigeon owners is soaring. The Beijing Racing Pigeon Association alone boasts more than 30 Nike Air MAx 1 Shoes Sale ,000 registered members.

Passion for competition, coupled with lucrative prizes, has become the wind beneath pigeon racing's wings.

RIO DE JANEIRO, April 25 (Xinhua) -- Since September 2009 when Rio de Janeiro was chosen to host the 2016 Olympic Games, the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB) has worked to ensure local athletes will be ready to bring back a sizeable medal haul.

Brazil has set the official target of being in the top 10 in the final medal tally, a real challenge as the country finished 22nd in 2012, with 3 gold, 5 silver and 9 bronze medals.

In an exclusive interview, Marcus Vinicius Freire, the COB's executive director for sports, thinks this challenge is difficult, but not impossible. To achieve it, Brazil has created a strategic plan since 2009, with Freire saying "everything is going as planned."

"We have been offering our athletes their best ever preparation over the last three years. Brazilian sport has continued to evolve. Between 2013 and 2015, Brazil has won 67 medals in the world championships of Olympic sports, 27 more than in the previous Olympic cycle. We have been on the podium for 15 sports in the last three years, which makes us confident that we will break into the top 10 for the final medal tally at the Rio Games," he explained.

The country has 428 guaranteed Olympic spots, with 120 of the athletes already set. Freire explains that athletes will continue to compete until July to claim their Olympic berths.

In the preparation for the Olympic Games at home, Brazil has invested around 700 million reais (197 million U.S. dollars) from 2012 to 2016, most of it coming from a law that says that two percent of spending from federal lotteries will go to the COB (85 percent) and the Brazilian Paralympic Committee (15 percent).

This investment has included the hiring of foreign coaches. Freire explained that the COB believes the participation and experience of foreign coaches is crucial to athletes.

"We currently have 40 foreign coaches in 23 different disciplines, working with the Brazilian teams. We are very happy with the results, including Spain's Jesus Mortan, who helped our canoeing team win, Russia's Alexander Alexandrov, who is transforming our female artistic gymnastics and Croatia's Ratko Rudik, who is making our water polo team one of the best in the world," said the executive.

Asked which new sports he expects Brazilians to reach the podium in, Freire said that a lot of focus has been given to new sports, such as handball, archery, canoeing, marathon swimming, and the modern pentathlon.

For Freire, having the Olympics at home offers advantages, but athletes may feel the pressure differently.

"Professional athletes are used to the pressure. Competing at home during Rio 2016 will .
