WWE WRESTLEMANIA REVENGE TOUR

WWE_SD_RevTour2012_TZ_00.inddWrestling is a sport-show, where the stars are called “wrestlers”, they are athletes who perform simulated combat maneuvers, or try to recreate as faithfully as possible moves such as, punching, kicking, using the infamous steel chair and much more mayhem.

The outcome of the match is predetermined and the different stories that come out  between the wrestlers (known also as “storyline”) are invented by people called “bookers”.

Although wrestling is somewhat protected and secure, injuries do occur quite frequently.The dominant wrestling organization has its headquartered in the U.S. and is known as the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). The WWE was known as the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) until 2000, when the World Wide Fund for Nature filed a lawsuit against the company claiming that it was violating the agreements for the use of the initials WWF.

The President of WWE Vince McMahon, with his wife Linda and their children Shane and Stephanie, appear often in the plots designed to add interest to the shows of  Raw, SmackDown and ECW.

If you are not familiar with the world of professional wrestling, you might assume that this is an activity for men only. However, many women are quite successful as  professional wrestlers. In WWE, the female wrestlers are called Divas and an annual competition called the WWE Diva Search is held every summer to discover new talent.

Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell have both confirmed they will run on the fore mentioned date in Rome. Sensational! Last year’s spectators were mounting 47.732. Not only numbers but both have had a nice sprint and in the end Bolt overcame his co-national by only 0.02 sec. 9.91 to 9.93. The presence of such competitive sports women and men make events like this enjoyable. 

boltUsain Bolt and Asafa Powell are just a drop in the ocean, there are also other professional first class athletes, ideal to watch. And the Samsung Diamond League is a superb occasion.

The Samsung Diamond League is an annual series of track and field meetings held from 2010 onwards, beginning with the 2010 IAAF Diamond League. It is organized by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and was designed to replace the IAAF Golden League, which was held annually since 1998.

While the Golden League was formed to increase the profile of the leading European athletics competitions, the Diamond League’s aim is to “enhance the worldwide appeal of athletics by going outside Europe for the first time.” In addition to the original Golden League members and other traditional European meetings, the series includes events in the United States, China and Qatar.

The winner of each of the 32 Diamond Races will receive a 40’000 USD cash prize and a spectacular Diamond Trophy created by Beyer, one of the oldest and most respected jewelers in the world, which was established in Zurich in the 18th century.

Rome Marathon: The Run and The Fun


img-1203021500-maratonaSunday, March 18, 2012 at9am from the Via dei Fori Imperiali- starts the 18th Rome Marathon. The racecourse passes all major tourist attractions in Rome, namely the Coloseum, Roman Forum, Mouth of Truth, Circo Massimo, Piramide,  St Paul Basilica, Tiberina island, Navona Square, Castle St Angel,  St Peter Basilica, Campidoglio, music auditorium and many others. Perfect for a fun and sight-filled run through Rome.

International, national and continental competitors are flocking from all corners of the earth to Rome for the 18th marathon edition. Cristal clear, no one can foretell who will be the winner, but like all other major-long-distance-competitions this also might be dominated by East African champs. Nevertheless Brazilian fans, as in any World Cup competition- won’t be satisfied with runner up, the same is true with any elite runner, i.e. the thirst to win internationally sealed marathon race, on the hill tops of thousand-years-history of athletic tournaments.

In the past half-decade, like other long-distance-competitions, the Rome marathon was under the East-African-runners dominion. Kenyan gems have won the five highest podiums of the last six consecutive Rome marathon chapters and Ethiopian athletes seem coming back- fifty years to the legendary barefoot runner Abbebe Bekila-  dominated  last year’s table with seven runners in the best-ten list. Is someone from Italy going to make it to a podium higher than the 2006 second result? But as the proverb goes, ‘Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched’.

maratona-roma-2012

The Rome marathon-day is a two-day event. Side by side to the International marathon is the non-competitive Rome Fun race, this is more a leisure walk than a race. Parents, friends, class mates, lovers, co-workers and so on use this event to walk & talk the 4km distance coined “La Stracittadina”.

Those who want to participate on one of the two occasions can visit this site:- www.maratonadiroma.it

Runners, art hunters or  admirers can take this opportunity to imagine the knowledge and wisdom of the Most High that vested upon the great grandparents of Rome. Decorations, architectures and the history that accompanies the ancient sites add flavour to the whole event.

At the end of a busy day running, filming, shopping, visiting points of interests, jogging and etcetera come and relax in Des Artistes and Yes Hotel Rome  which are ready to satisfy the needs of everyone. These hotels are located within a 5 minute walk from Termini Central Station, three underground stops from the marathon start/finish line, easily accessible from the major tourist attractions and extremely reasonable prices for your stay.
