Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Chris Hoy tell PM: Hands off sport funding

The Independent   Thurs, Aug 9 2012

Britain’s medallists tell Cameron that we’ll all regret it at Rio Games if he cuts elite sport funding. Britain’s most decorated Olympian Sir Chris Hoy led a succession of medallists yesterday in warning David Cameron of the dire consequences of cutting funding for elite sport. Hoy, who won his sixth gold medal in the velodrome on Tuesday, spoke out as ministers refused to guarantee that current levels of sports spending will be maintained.

July 6, 2012 Headlines: Vacations, Bills Stadium, ‘n’ Casino battles in Miami

Why are Obama and Romney so bad at vacationing?

Yahoo! News Fri, 06 Jul 2012 08:56 AM PDT

Barack Obama may be the first president to write his way into the White House with his two autobiographies, but his first summer vacation as president did little to enhance his reputation as a bookish intellectual. During his one-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard in August 2009 (interrupted by Ted Kennedy’s funeral), Obama played golf compulsively, worked in some half-court basketball, obsessed over his morning fitness routine, took on Michelle in tennis and went biking and swimming with his daughters. About all that was missing from this grueling athleticism were the Romney family sports of water-skiing and dressage.

The revelation that Obama, left to his own devices on vacation, is a competition-addicted jock should embarrass liberal Democrats. All through George W. Bush’s star-crossed presidency, liberals mocked his obsessive commitment to physical fitness as a symbol of Texas shallowness. Elaborate air castles of dubious psychological theories were built around the notion that Bush’s addiction to exercise was part of the same compulsive personality that once led him to heavy drinking. But when Obama displayed the same single-minded fanaticism about physical fitness, Democrats (when they mentioned it at all) chalked it up to the president’s well-rounded personality.

Erie County exec plays hardball with Bills

Fan Nation 08:01 AM Fri, 06 Jul

During this relative downtime on the NFL calendar, a political football is being tossed around in Western New York, where Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz vows to have much of a new stadium lease hammered out by the start of training camp next month. “They (The Bills) want more than I think they know they’re going to get,” Poloncarz told WGRZ-TV. “But but we’re not going to give away the store to keep the team here. We’re going to ensure that this team is economically viable and is kept here for many years. … [I] feel confident that when all is said and done that we’re going to get a lease that is fair for all, and keeps the Buffalo Bills in this community so that they’re the Buffalo Bills, not the Los Angeles Bills,” Poloncarz said.
