Who and when will run faster than Bolt, robot-submariners, scientists biomechanics, a ban on Copacabana – mass media about the 9th Olympic Games day.
The main event of the 9th Olympic Games day in Rio de Janeiro became the final 100m run, that was crowned by one more victory of Usain Bolt. World mass media discussed one more victory of this great sportsman on many sides. “Championship” in its review could not forget about this event but also prepared something else.
Christ the Savior and Judah
Jamaica Gleaner didn’t stint bright epithets describing another Bolt’s Olympic victory. “He came to the run track having stretched his hands on sides and he was similar to Christ the Savior. He left the stadium the way he came – on the top. Bolt became the only one sportsman in the history of Olympic Games who has won 3 times 100 m runs on Olympic Games. Justin Gatlin started from blocks as if he ran from the hell but again he became the second. If it continues so far, Judah Iscariot will be his only rival”, – the Jamaican newspaper writes.
Biomechanics didn’t help
The Popular Mechanics magazine has told how Justin Gatlin was preparing to the battle with Usain Bolt. It appears that his run was studied by the best bio mechanics from the USA. They have made the most detailed analysis pointed out the weakest points. The scientists have optimized literally each movement of Gatlin in order he could improve his results. To record the run of the athlete were used the special cameras that are capable to write down even 300 shots per second. It is enough to trace every wing beat of a humming bird. Thanks to these researches Gatlin really has changed the way he runs and considerably improved his start – now he starts better than any other sprinter in the world. But this didn’t help him to conquer Bolt at the Olympic Games in Rio-de-Janeiro. May be it is because he is 34 years old. He has lost his last chance to win Bolt.
Genetic engineering is the future of sport
The scientific edition Nautilus while thinking about the victory of Bolt draws the following conclusion: it is possible to run even quicker and there are no limits to human forces. “Usain Bolt possibly belongs to absolutely diverse biological spices. Even the runner who is using anabolic steroids is not capable to conquer the genetic unique person. In future the number of such people will increase due to the technologies of genes correction named CRISPR. We are entering an era in which DNA will define not a case but the human intelligence. The nature of athletes and the kind of sport in which they are contesting will change thanks to the genomic technologies. The most popular kind of sport among audience in 2100 will become the competitions between the titans of 2.4 meters in height who will be capable with unique smartness to strike the rotating headings while performing the sophisticated ju-jitsu movements. Or simply very, very quick 100m run. Without doping”, – as edition assures.
CNN edition has published great material about the process of making underwater photos during such great competition as the Olympic Games. The famous photographer Al Bello who has worked at 11 Olympic Games, but Games at Rio-de-Janeiro became the first when he used the underwater robots. “In the past traditional static cameras were plunged under the water that didn’t allow to carry out full shooting. Now the robotized cameras make it possible to carry out the full underwater photo-report”, – Bello said. In the article he told about the way such cameras work. There can be only 10 cameras in the water pool. Bello is sure that such cameras won’t be able to replace normal work of a human. “The robot doesn’t act independently and doesn’t create ideas. It just helps us to work more effectively than before”, – the photographer emphasizes.
Copacabana under a ban
Heads of the delegation of the national team of Australia have made the decision to restrict the visits of the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema in Rio-de-Janeiro to the athletes during the hours of darkness. The Guardian writes about this. The incident with American swimmer Ryan Lochte was the reason to introduce such a ban. The six times Olympic champion has suffered because of the armed robbers. “It is not a secret that many our athletes after the hard day of completions like to relax and visit the beaches. We have prepared the special manual for beach visits in which it is definitely highlighted that it is forbidden to visit them during the hours of darkness. Safety of our athletes and all members of our delegation is our priority”, – the edition is quoting the words of the security director of the Australian delegation Greg Nanse.
