Many Brazilians think Olympic Games cause more harm

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A new poll says almost two out of three Brazilians believe that hosting the Summer Games will cause the country more harm than good.

Team leader Ralph Stoeckli says the Swiss can win more if their medal candidates stay healthy and deliver their best performances.

The number could increase, pending wildcard entries for athletics and changes to the tennis draw, the Brazilian Olympic Committee said on Monday, reports Xinhua.

The lineup includes Roger Federer at his fifth Summer Games.

The Boxing Association of Korea (BAK) said it received a document from the International Boxing Association (AIBA), the amateur boxing governing body, early Tuesday morning that says Ham, who fights at bantamweight (under-56kg), can compete at the Rio Games.

Both gold medalists from four years ago will defend their titles in Rio: Nicola Spirig in triathlon, and Steve Guerdat in equestrian jumping.

416 athletes made up of 256 women and 160 men will represent the country in 26 sports as the country seeks to improve its position on the medal table.

"In addition to enhancing national prestige and personal honor with performances on the field, you should develop friendships with athletes from all over the world and use the precious opportunity to step into a wider world", Kim said.

US rugby announced its men's and women's Olympic roster Monday in a list that includes New England Patriots special teams player Nate Ebner and veteran Jillion Potter, who was diagnosed with cancer two years ago.

"We are excited to be returning to Atlanta and the site of the 1996 Games for our final preparation for the 2016 Games in Rio", said Linda Paul, president and chief executive officer of USA Diving. "For me, as a professional athlete, it's a huge honor to be part of it".

"And it's been the same this year, I didn't start particularly well but I've got the high of the Olympics now".

For the second consecutive Olympics, Jin could bring home the first gold medal.

Either way, Grindr crashed within the first few hours of athletes arriving to the London Olympic Games a few years back, so the condoms should certainly come in handy when the games kick off on August 5.

"The pressure I think a good thing because it becomes a motivation to see the Brazilian people cheering and sharing our desire to claim this medal".
