DLISN
The national leader in sports
THE OLYMPIC GAMES: PREVIEW

Finally after years of prep. and training were finally here at the olympics.
This article breaks down all the athletes by sport from the medal hopes, to the athletes just happy to be here

DIVING

The DLI Diving team is lead by Jamie Sunderland a 5 time national champion in the mens 10m. He stated that, "this year is more for the experience, next games I'll start thinking about medals." On the Women's side, Marrisa Strong won the only spot at a very close olympic trials. Look for her to be a dark horse for a medal.

SWIMMING

All eyes will be on Alex Kang the 10x national champion and regional record holder in the 1500m."I consider myself a favorite", he said in an interview."I'm also swimming the ten thousand, it's after the 15 so I thought i'd give it a try." In the shorter distances look for Nick Gardner and Taylor Gardner, husband and wife who look to be the first couple to both win medals.

ATHLETICS

Two words. Jermey. Johnson. One of our best hopes for a medal, 100m and 200m sprinter Jermey Johnson is looking to shock the world this June with a gold medal. The national team member had a bad Abidan meet but is sure to be back on his feet at the games. In the middle distances national record holder in the 1500m Sebastian Atashi leads a strong contingent. Decathlete Kyle Messinger, ran the 400m and got third at the Abidan meet and shows he is in great shape. On the women's side Ellie Escobar is looking to double in the 1500 and 800. Heptathlete Jillian Ariols set a national record in the Heptathlon. In the marathon, Olivia Policheck looks to get the gold being the 6th ranked athlete with a PR of 2:33:42. She said"The games have been my goal forever and it feels so good to finally realize that I'm here."

CYCLING

Like Jermey Johnson in the 100m Jack Maddux is almost a write in the men's time trial. He has won the ITT national championship 4 times has 2 world championships and has won the D Land Tour once. Just for kicks, he has the Hour record too. In the road race he also highlights a field that also includes, Miles Irish and Robbie Farrens. In the BMX and MTB races Sean McElroy is our only hope. But because he lives on a farm that he converted into a race track and BMX track, we should have faith in him.

WOMEN's HOCKEY

The coach declined to put a story in.

WOMEN'S SOCCER

The women's soccer team looks pretty good. The all-star team from the domestic league they are simply the best. Attacking midfielder Juila Khoury leads the team, but league MVP goalie Frans Kouberhan may steal the show.

TRIATHLON

Triathlon. All of the sports in DLI this is the one that we cherish the most. On the men's side we have Dan Reid the three time world champion. His nick name is the terminator for a reason. With 15 world cup wins Dan Reid is probably the best in the world right now. But also on the team is Matthew Willingham, a world championship medalist, and Sawyer Lay, the World Junior champion. Willingham said in an interview, "We are really good, really good. On most olympic teams a world's medalist like me would be the best on the team, but on our team I'm second and the only one who hasn't won a world title. That's how good we are." Luckily for the isles, the goodness doesn't stop there. Jocelyn Musela, a world cup winner and 2nd at the world championships, is another strong hope for a medal, as well as Mara Vides, the junior world champion.

BEACH VOLLEYBALL
Nik Lizdenis and Ryan Macdougal are tired from being dragged around the world on tour, but they say it was worth it to make it to the games, an athletes dream. "It has been hard in some spots but I think the Games will pump us up," Lizdenis said, "It really all changes when your in the olympics."

Welcome to the Games of the VII Olympiad here in the beautiful city of Emberton!
Välkommen till spelen i VII olympiaden här i den vackra staden Emberton!
Maligayang pagdating sa Games ng VII olimpyad dito sa magandang lungsod ng Emberton!

I'm Jaana Kim live in TopTV Sport Studios, and here's Jhom Navarrito and Sarai Restropeo live in Ciudad Longanisa, with Gina Hamadzi and Cathy Pendelton in Emberton.Oh, and there's Bang Sung-Ki and Leonard Gatsby in the reporters area. Hey guys!

Bang: Hey!
Gina:Hej!
Jhom: Hoy! ito totoo lamang namin ay may 79 ATLETA?Ay sus nanu, maaari kaming magkaroon ng pinakamaliit na delegasyon!


Jaana: Hi guys, and nope! The Lavonian Islands have 54. Today, on WakeUp BG, I have here in the studios Saša Miloševići and Manolo Harkin. Saša is our big hope for a gold, as she is one of the best in the world at women's hammer throw, and Manolo is our flag bearer, and is singing our official Olympics song, "Let's Go For That Gold Medal". Welcome!

Hello Jaana and hello Bloodbath Generation! I'm Saša Miloševići.
And hi, BG. I'm Manolo Harkin, flying the flag for you at the Olympics on June 22.

J: Thanks so much! Now, Saša, what does it feel like to be one of our few hopes for a medal, and how will you be dealing with the pressure?

Well, I have my fans. They make me love what I do. And I've been training hard, and I actually have been training at facilities similar to the main stadium in Emberton to, you know, get the feel of it.

J: Great! Now, xxFINHAWTNENVINADENxx from Flipr asked,
After your recent scandal [Manolo was caught smoking, illegal in BG], will you still be our flag bearer?


Yes, I am still flag bearer. Although some are now against me, I know I have the support of the delegation, the BGNTC, and citizens to cheer us on.

J: That's all we have, sadly, too short IMO, but oh well. To end our show, here's the instrumental to our official song, "Let's Go For That Gold Medal."

Olympic Hopefuls, Cyborg Holland's dreams of Gold.

(PART 1/7)

Dreams of Gold, the Sporting motto for Cyborg Holland's team. A poignant motto, that stirs ups passion and pride for their pursuits in the Games. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be showing the best of what Cyborg Holland has to offer for a Gold medal. Along with this, they'll be daily live coverage on CYBSports 2 and a round-up show on CYBSports 1 at 9pm.

Today, we'll be looking at sucessful swimmer Nena Richt, who is competing in the Women's 100m and 200m Breaststroke. She won Cyborg Holland's first Olympic gold last time round in Lasft, taking the title in the 100m with an Olmpic Record.

Born Alexandra Nena Björna Richt in New Amzterdam in 1985 to a wealthy mining family living in western New Amzterdam.

She took up swimming from and early age and was prosperous in the pool for both school and club. She broke a still standing 6 school records at her prep school and a further 4 more at secondary school, where she won a gold medal at the National Junior Swimming Champioships at the age of 16 in 2001. She then took two more golds the following year at the same event, and took a bronze at the National level event.

She since attended University in Eindhoven and studied Law, but kept up her swimming with a passion. She narrowed down and honed her skills on the breast-stroke, and took gold in the National Championships at the age of 22 in 2007 in the 100m and 200m, but still no Olympic entry for the young girl.

Eventually, after three more Golds she finally was drafted into the Olympic squad to compete for Cyborg Holland in their first games, in Lasft, Cafundeu. She was only 25 at the time, and had only left the country 4 times, and only to Esportiva with her parents. She competed in the 100m and 200m discipline, but was looking primarily for the 200m medal. This however did not come as she came 14th in the semi final, leaving her out of the final 8. However, she then focused entirely on the 100m, and spent every spare second in the pool.

She took the gold medal by 44 milliseconds over Naomi Lester of Delaclava, and thus became Cyborg Holland's first gold medalist, and second ever after Edwin Pladeer's fencing silver.

She is looking to work on this and to earn another medal in this Year's games, although she knows the competition will be greater than ever.
Esportiva! It's the business

Show me the source where it says 98% of people would break down in tears if Facebook shut down. Where are the figures, the numbers? WHERE ARE THEY?

Live from Emberton, Krytenia, from ITV's built facilities on Emberton , here is the Olympic Games Report with Nekonian anchor Felicia Mittens and street footballer Kamine Nagatono.

Felicia is wearing a normal blue dress and Kamine is wearing jeans and a Northern Sunrise Islands' national team shirt as both of them are behind the news table.

Felicia: Scratches her Feline Ear, swinging her tail oftenly, as the tail appears behind her. Hello and welcome, Northern Sunrisians to the our first report of the VII Olympiad Games on the city of Emberton, Krytenia.

Kamine: Yes, Hello, fellas! "The Marills" will make their debut on a major international tournament right here on Krytenia. With almost two hundred and fifty representants of the Northern Sunrise Islands playing at the Olympiads, we are expecting good progresses. Anyways, after each day, Me and Felicia will be giving you updated news and also some mic time from the Sunrisians here at the Olympiads.

Felicia: And what should we expect from the Sunrisians this year?

Kamine: Well, we can only hope that our Marills will be bringing some gold for home. I mean, we have a very young team and...

Felicia: Yes, but that doesn't mean that luck can happen.

Kamine: Yeah! We'll get some medals! Go Marills!

Felicia: Yup. But let's not forget, competition is tough. Anyway, let's just show our watchers who could be bringing top gold medals!

Kamine: Well, the Maekawa sisters at swimming are the Flag Bearers for our athletes at the Opening! They are very talented and are almost born to live in the sea.

Felicia: And don't forget of our national football team! With Lynette Bourbon announced as our coach, we can expect a top appearence of the Marills.

Kamine: What about "La Reina"? Caliente Judo, I tell you! Is it going to be too hot for her competitors? Most likely yes!

Felicia: Oh, and don't forget of the Arsenes! Mixed Doubles representants, they are expecting to show us all of their top skills on the court.

Kamine: Fun fact, Rosanne Arsene told us that her son, Laurent will be watching from Madjorie and will be informed of his parents by ITV Madjorie! Mama and Papa are safe here, Laurent, they'll be back ASAP!

Felicia: Awwwww! Forms a heart with the end of her tail. That's so sweet! Hang tight, Laurent!

Kamine: Talking about sweet things, have you seen the De Souza brothers? Sweet and Hot!

Felicia: Ahah, indeed, Kamine! They will be playing on the sweet and hot beaches of Kyrtenia this Olympiad.

Kamine: I wasn't talking about the beaches, Felicia.

Felicia: Eheh... Well... Moving on!

Kamine: There is also the Hockey Marills. Top team, I tell you! Top Team.

Felicia: And this is the end of our first newcast. I'm Felicia Mittens!

Kamine: And I'm Kamine Nagatono.

Felicia: See you next time here on ITV!

Chancellery Sporting News (CSN)

[Two analysts sit behind a desk. They are turned so that they somewhat face each other, but well still having their face presented forward to the camera. Both men are of a trim build and average height, the man on the left is slightly taller and has darker hair, well his compatriot has a more blondish color to his hair. An intro jingle plays as an intro real, made up of highlights from previous Olympic Games, is played.]

Tim [The man on the left] - "Welcome to our coverage of the VII Olympic Games, brought to you from our studio in Emberton, Kyrtenia! I'm Tim McCarthy and with me is Nate Leopold. We will be working together over the next few weeks to bring you the most up to date and comprehensive coverage of the Olympic Games. You can follow us here, on CSN, where we will broadcast every evening, as well as doing pre event broadcasts for many scheduled competitions. Check online for more scheduling details, as well as to watch live streams of all events being contested at these Games.

Nate - "Tim, these really are shaping up to be some amazing Games, especially for the Ferkian team. The Ministry of Sport released its official roster not too long ago, and it is packed full of talent."

Tim - "Also, its packed full of more athletes then we have ever sent before, definitely a good sign for the sporting fans among us."

Nate - "Definitely, fans will be kept very busy trying to keep track of all of the competition here in Emberton. Although, on the topic of keeping track, athletics still is the main focus at these Games! The Ferkian delegation is stacked for the athletics competition, and its staked across the board. Men and women, sprints and jumps. Distance as usual is filled to the brim with potential world beaters and record setters!

Tim - "Indeed. Watching the National Olympic Trials for Athletics was insane! The amount of talent, even the amount of talent left behind, really surprised me! We have always been strong in the past, but this year could shape up to be something special. Lots of new faces looking to bring home the gold."

Nate - "But some familiar faces as well. I'll be honest here, I was surprised to see Kyle Reper make the team, and am a bit concerned over his performance at the Abdian Track and Field Invitational not too long ago."

[Video cuts to a feed from the Abdian Invitational, showing the end of the 5000m run. A Ferkian commentator is calling the race, simoltaneously excited by the strong performances up front, but lamenting Repers middle of the pack finish.]

Tim - "Eleventh place, in 13:14.89...not up to par at all, but frightfully in line with some of Repers recent results."

Nate - "I would dare say its in line with most of Repers recent results. I'll be the first to admit, he was dominate in Ferkas leading up to the V Olympic Games. In the years before that, not even counting an amazing prep and collegiate career, Reper was the class of Ferkian distance running. National records, and an Olympic Gold medal really prove that. I mean, you can't argue with those kinds of results. The guy is a distance runner who is even a top ten performer against the milers."

Tim - "But since the V Olympic Games...well, he has been on and off."

Nate - "Off more than on, lets be honest."

Tim - "Fair enough, fair enough. He posted some decent marks after returning from the V Olympiad, but nothing stellar. His prep for the VI Olympics was good enough, he went four for four in his races during his build up, but it seemed like he was straining more than usual."

Nate - "Then the VI Olympics happened, and the proverbial shit hit the fan, didn't it?"

Tim - "That is one way to put it! Reper failed to perform well, definitely not performing like a defending champion. He didn't race again that season at all, dropped off the grid pretty much."

Nate - "Now he is preparing for his third Olympics, and we don't know what to expect. He lost his opener, a 5km road race, finishing third behind two no name collegiate runners. Then he turns around and almost beats his personal best in the 1500, before eking out a win in the steeple at the Trials."

Tim - "He got the win in the 5000m also, barely beating out Benjamin Leram, who actually bested him earlier in the week during the heats. So he travels to Abdian and gets steamrolled in the 5000m there, and is unable to run his anchor of the DMR because the entire meet management just runs off one day."

Nate - "We will try to get him in here for an interview before his events begin. I know that I at least would love to hear his take on the matter. We all have to agree, if he can get himself back to his form before the V Olympiad, then he should be set up very nicely!"

Tim - "Up next we will take more about the national team roster, looking at the archery delegation, which has some impressive performers in it. Team archery coach Julius Marce will be joining us to discuss his athletes, their sport, and their preparation."

After decades of under achievement at the Summer Olympics, Qazox has sent their largest delegation ever to Emberton, Krytenia. 365 athletes in 140 events will try to better Qazox' best medal count of 6 during the summer games. The goal of 20 total medals seems feasible, with strong delegations in Swimming, Boxing, Athletics, Tennis, Handball and Gymnastics. Will this finally be the Games in which Qazox becomes one of the top nations, or will they once again wilt under the international spotlight?

Leckler: Greetings to our viewers at home my name is Brian Leckler and I am joined alongside Carter Moore. We will be coming live to you throughout this Olympics here in the beautiful city of Emberton.

Moore: A beautiful city it is indeed, Brian, the Olympic Council picked a perfect location for these games and the planners here in Krytenia did a phenomenal job preparing for such a large scale event.

Leckler: Yes indeed... now lets get to the Mantwenic delegation which was announced two days ago....

Moore: Yeah, not much has changed from the last Olympics in Lasft... only 20 or so athletes that we didn't see four years ago...

Lecker: Which could be good or bad considering that Mantwenic brought home 3 medals four years ago, a gold, a silver, and a bronze.

Moore: There were some athletes though that were so close in receiving a medal and it is right that they get another chance here in Emberton.

Leckler: Now, David Carsen, Mantwenic's best tennis player announced earlier this month that this will be his final Olympics. What do you say, expected or not?

Moore: This is his 3rd Olympics and he is currently thirty-three years of age... I think it is a wise decision on his part.

Leckler: Now, he has had success in the Olympics.... although he has not yet won a medal he made it to the third round in Outineau eight years ago and he made it to the fourth round of play in Lasft four years ago.

Moore: He has the talent, he just hasn't had the luck to propel him to a medal.

Leckler: Now what about our flag bearer for the ceremonies, are you surprised that David Carsen was not chosen, but Mark Claythorne instead?

Moore: No, Claythorne was the country's first gold medalist in the Men's 55 km Wrestling competition during the last Olympics in Lasft. It is only right that he gets the honor of carrying the flag.

Leckler: Now what about some other sports, who do you think has the best chance to win a medal for Mantwenic this year?

Moore: During the Olympics in Lasft, the women's beach volleyball duo of Courtney Jones and Tammy Parker had a magical run and I think they could repeat that run and possibly earn themselves a medal. I also think that swimmer Demetrius Copus has a shot at the 200m Breaststroke.

Leckler: For Track and Field the speedy Babus Locus will try to bring home a medal in the Men's 400m and 800m races. Also Cartus Ibus in the Men's 200m....

Moore: And don't forget about the Men's 4×100m Relay which consists of Babus Locus, Cartus Ibus, Demetrius Pontus, and Nixon Gersard.

Leckler: And in the high jump where Peter Stone and Frontis Demus look to bring home a medal.

Leckler: The Mantwenic Delegation is set for arrival tomorrow morning and we will talk to you again at that time.

Moore: Should be very a interesting Olympics ahead of us...

Leckler: Yes it should and for my counterpart Carter Moore, We look forward to broadcasting the Games of the VII Olympiad here in Emberton, Krytenia to all of you at home. Good Night, Mantwenic.

"Hi, I'm Joshua Blue and welcome to TSPN Classic presents they Emberton Olympic games. 20 years ago the VII Olympic games were held in the great nation of Kyrtenia. As a former olympian myself i understand the hard work that a person needs to do over the course of their life to become olympic medalists. I won two silver medal's in the winter olympics on halfpipe. I never had that Gold medal winning moment. But i wish i had."

Camera pans to other side

"Over the next two hours we will immortalize in glory some of the most famous moments from the Emberton olympics. The glory, the trials. The joy of victory and the agony of defeat. 20 years ago 400 individual entries were made into the olympics by the Taeshani Olympic Federation. 627 athletes left from Taeshan to Krytenia. Many won medals, many won medals in later olympics. In the next two hours the stories of the olympics of Emberton will be told. The famous and the not so famous."

"First we must start with the opening. And here it is. In breathtaking EHDTV."

Entering the Olympics for the first time,Mapletish looks to shake under the international limelight,but hope to win a medal or two,after entering the Winter Olympics without a single medal won.Former URAian nation El Minas won a bronze medal in the Olympics and is currently the only nation in former URA to have done so.Mapletish looks to equal the record and even break it,with a strong delegation from Association Football,Volleyball and handball.There will be lots to be seen if Mapletish can aim for the virtually challenged.

Chancellery Sporting News (CSN)

[Two analysts sit behind a desk. They are turned so that they somewhat face each other, but well still having their face presented forward to the camera. Both men are of a trim build and average height, the man on the left is slightly taller and has darker hair, well his compatriot has a more blondish color to his hair. An intro jingle plays as an intro real, made up of highlights from previous Olympic Games, is played. This title sequence ends with the worlds "Team Sports Round-Up!"]

Tim [Seated to the Left] - "Welcome back to the CSN coverage of the 7th Olympiad! My name is Tim McCarthy, and sitting with me is Nate Leopold, coming to you live from Emberton, Kyrtenia. We here at CSN are proud to continue our coverage of these Olympic Games, which promise to be filled with excitement and some truly amazing performances."

Nate - "Indeed. And this time around Ferkian fans will be able to truly appreciate the glory of team sports, events which the Chancellery Kingdom has been cautious about in the past."

Tim - "Yes, but for these games the Ministry of Sport has actually agreed to send a large group of teams. Ten teams in total, five male and five female. Some of the sports are pretty standard Ferkian favorites, others might be the first time that they are viewed on a major stage. Now, lets work our way down the roster lists, discussing each teams chances and some key players, shall we?"

Nate - "Lets start right at the top then, with one of those sports which hasn't really reached the masses yet in Ferkas. Basketball. The National Olympic Committee has sent both a Men's and Women's team, and both are pretty strong."

Tim - "But there can be no argument, the Men's team is, at least on paper, the stronger of the two. In fact, the Men's team is remarkably strong considering the lake of emphasis placed on the indoor ball game."

Nate - "The team is lead on the court by Andrew Gardner, a giant of a man measuring in at some 6'11" in height. Gardner played for the University of Coventry, leading the team to three National Championship appearances and one title. Since graduating he has played the last two years with the Coventry Crusaders, where he is currently that teams Captain also."

Tim - "Well we are on the topic of players, be sure to keep an eye on William McCary, the 6'3 starting point guard. He has displayed some amazing ball handling skills in the past and can be a real showman on the court. Very quick and fluid movement, a great example of sport as art."

Nate - "Coaching is superb for the team also. Head Coach Dustin Kern, PhD, usually leads the University of Northern Ferkas. In his ten year term with the team they have reached the National Championship bracket all ten years, the semi finals six times, and have appeared five times in the championship game, including two championship titles. Some might accuse him of running a tight ship, but he knows how to get players to preform to their fullest when it really counts."

Tim - "Andrew Baddely will be the head coach for the Womens team in Kyrtenia. He coaches professionally for the Eastburg Eagles, who play in the National Women's Basketball League. His star player and team Captain, Marta Vlasic, who plays generally as a "Small Forward".

Nate - "Vlasic should be a tremendous asset on the courts, a highly versatile and agile player with some great experience. She is one of those players who seems to have a constant awareness of the game and always knows where to place not only herself, but those under her captaincy. She has some tremendous potential in these games and viewers should really keep a good eye on her."

Tim - "Mind you, Vlasic won't be playing alone out there. Two other names really stand out on the roster, Lillian Mevon as the Center and Ashely Xi as the Point Guard. Mevon played with Vlasic in college and the two were an amazing duo, hopefully they have had enough time in practice to get that connection back. Xi is a few years older than the other two, but a highly experienced and capable player. Mevon and Xi, combined with Vlasic's impeccable skills, form the backbone of this team, no doubt about that!"

Nate - "Alright, lets move down the list a little. The next game is one which the average viewer should be far more familiar with. The Ministry of Sport has announced Men's and Women's soccer participation in these games, and it should shape up to be pretty interesting!"

Tim - "Just like with Basketball, the NOC has managed to put together a stellar squad to send to Emberton."

Nate - "I would have to agree. At least on paper this looks like a team that can put up a real challenge, even to some of the more establish soccer nations. Players like Hubaab al-Sanwir, his brother Mirsab al-Sanwir, and Paul Neely form the backbone of this team. All three men play in the midfield position, which in the standard Ferkian formation is arguably the most important spot on the field."

Tim - "With Sir Todd Elray and Titus H. Limpfield, PhD leading the team as Manager and Coach, we all know what to expect. A highly dynamic 3 - 6 -1 formation with lots of potential for quick and exciting midfield moves."

Nate - "It isn't a formation that you see too often, especially because it carries a certain risk to it. If the midfield can't shift quickly between offensive and defensive play...well, things can turn out pretty ugly."

Tim - "You know what though? I'm not too worried about that. This team has some amazing players on it, both of the al-Sanwir brothers have amazing speed and endurance, as do most of the other players. I think they will be able to handle the stress of the game and I look forward to seeing them surprise some nations that might expect to ease past a nation which has never entered the World Cup."

Nate - "Women's Soccer...not as much though. Lead by Debora Manning as the Manager and Tara Goldstein as Head Coach, this team will favor the more defensively minded 4 - 5 - 1 set up."

Tim - "I think the biggest issue with this team will be ball handling. They just don't have the finesse that you really need on this level. Players like Olivia Kingby, Heather English, and Kelsey Struse are all amazing athletes. However, they don't have that extra touch with the ball. I feel like they will be able to put themselves into position just fine and cover most of the moves, but they might find themselves over matched once they get there."

Nate - "Equally worrying is the lack of depth. Excluding those three you just named, most of the players are pretty standard talents. No names really pop out. And it gets even scarier if you look at the reserves list. This is a team that can't afford to lose any of its starters, especially not Kingby, English, or Struse. Injuries to those three will probably destroy any hopes the team has."

Tim - "Next on the list of sports is one that I'll have to admit, I don't know much about. Nate, do you know anything about handball?"

Nate - "Well Tim, its typically an indoor sport. Teams will put seven players in, six in the field and one in the goal. The objective is to pass the ball around the court and eventually throw it into the opponents goal. Its pretty simple really, and can be exciting to watch. Defensive players are allowed to make contact with offensive players in certain situations, and the game itself is very fast paced. I wouldn't be surprised if this one caught on pretty quickly with Ferkian fans."

Tim - "Well then, you seem to know the most about this then, want to guide us through the Men's and Women's team entries?"

Nate - "I'd be glad to. The Men's team is by far the stronger one, although they aren't a standout team by most measures. They are lead by Allen Lippick, who was a star player back in the late eighties and early nineties. His strongest player is probably Levi Mars, his goalie. Be on the lookout for some exciting saves which the team can hopefully turn quickly around into some points for themselves. The Women's team...well, unlike the men no league exists for Women to play handball in Ferkas. Only a few players have any experience, usually playing for the lowest tier club teams in foreign countries. The rest generally play for recreational leagues here in Ferkas, and I fear they lack the talent or ability to compete well on this level."

Tim - "The odds might be a bit better then for Hockey, where both the Men's and Women's teams are fairly close to being evenly matched. Ethan Frome will be leading both the Men's and Women's team after John St. Claire had to step down from the Women's position. It is likely that Elizabeth Saints, the Women's Assistant Coach, will play a huge part in getting the ladies ready to compete in Emberton."

Nate - "Frome spoke briefly with us yesterday and seemed to be pretty excited about the Games. He said that although the teams are young they have plenty of energy and enthusiasm, and he wouldn't be surprised if they posted some strong results, even against stronger international competition."

Tim - "Again though, this is a sport with only minimal club level participation in the Chancellery Kingdom. Frome did admit that they had some difficulty filling the positions with capable players, but he feels confident in the roster that has been put together."

Nate - "Now, onto our final team sports, Men's and Women's Volleyball."

Tim - "And a bit of a change up, as the Men's team is obviously the weaker of the two."

Nate - "And by a fair margin! This womens team is stacked with talent, no doubt about that! The three 'R's, Rachel Ekia. Rachel Pollard. and Rachael Sinas provide a solid wall on defense at the net, but can also place the ball just about wherever they want it to go on offense. These ladies will be leading some other amazing talents and are coached by Elena Elard, the famous coach from Tillensburg College."

Tim - "Our viewers who are not familiar with Volleyball probably know Tillensburg College for winning the 2004 and 2008 National Collegiate Track and Field Championships for the Small Division. Well, it turns out they are also a powerhouse team for Volleyball! Elard has a 89.9% win record. That is overall, including wins against Large Division teams such as the University of Coventry. Now she has to turn that collegiate success into some solid international competition, and maybe, just maybe, these women can earn themselves some hardware!"

Nate - "The men...well, lets hope they aren't obsessed with the medals, right? Coached by Colby Peters, this team suffers from public perception of volleyball as a women's sport. The team has some decent players, but that is about it. And at this Olympic level, decent just doesn't cut it. Sorry guys, that is just the way life is!"

Tim - "So there you go, a brief overview of our team entries this year. Some great potential for truly amazing performances. You can read up even more on the teams, including analysis from Nate and I and each teams key players on CSN.com."

The Island Chronicle

Olympic Special
Aeropeg / Outineau / Lasft / Emberton

Domingo Orbina stood on the steps of the Sports Ministry, a huge grin on his face. In the hands of the former boxer turned successful business man and now politician was the documentation which, pending final confirmation from the hosting committee, codified the nation's entry into the seventh summer games in Krytenia.

It marked the culmination of a personal campaign conducted by the minister following a disastrous outing for the Sargossan delegation at the last games in Cafundéu. Four years ago then Olympic Association President Luís Ortega cut costs left, right and centre, using the exorbitant taxes in the host nation as a cover while he and his cronies lined their own pockets. Consequently morale in the neglected Sargossan camp plummeted and the medal tally of the nation's supposed finest didn't even manage to break double figures.

All of which prompted the newly appointed Ospina to take decisive action and he flew out to Lasft during the games themselves to dismiss Ortega and his entire executive committee. Ricardo Aranda, Ortega's surprisingly capable but largely ignored deputy, emerged from the cull as the most senior man left standing and was subsequently named as the president of the newly rebuilt and rechristened Olympic Authority of Sargossa (which still handily retained the existing 'OAS' acronym). Albeit with Ospina himself very much calling the shots.

Following the Lasft malaise the proceeding years have seen a much more profession approach taken by the OAS and investment has flooded into a variety of sports. An improvement in the athletics events has been a particular desire of Ospina and consequently a whole raft of changes have been seen. New facilities, new equipment, new technical staff and a whole new tournament have all been introduced to improve fortunes in the track and field arena. The nationwide Azure League was created to provide genuine professional action for Sargossa's athletes and as a result the nation now boasts comfortably its strongest athletics contingent to date, although how they compare to the rest of the world remains to be seen.

Swimming, tennis and badminton, typically among the nation's most popular sports, have also benefitted from increased investment and Ospina will be hoping to see some return of that investment when the medals start to be handed out. Sadly the OAS budget is not a bottomless pit and increased spending in certain areas has seen a reduction in others. The already meagre resources of sports such as fencing and sailing have been trimmed even further with many of the fringe events now considered hobbies more than anything else. Judo, canoeing and weight lifting have suffered while the gymnastics and wrestling authorities couldn't muster a single entrant between them. Although with a smaller delegation limit this time around that's perhaps no bad thing.

So it's to be a mixture of talented professions and enthusiastic amateurs who make the relatively short trip to Krytenia to hopefully bring a bit of sporting pride back to our fair shores. And, in perhaps a small apology for the budget cuts, the OAS have chosen one of the fringe athletes to carry the black, white and blue at the opening ceremony with Xaviera Benito, a shock taekwondo gold medallist from Lasft, getting the nod. In terms of medals this time around OAS chief Aranda has expressed hopes of bringing the nation's all time medal tally up to 70, which would require at least 17 from the Emberton Games.

A BSRN Olympic Preview and WC Analysis.

Live from Emberton, Krytenia, this is the Bergnovinaian Sports Radio Network with an Olympic preview.
Olympic fanfare.
With the opening ceremonies less than two weeks away and the Olympic preliminaries in 8 days, Bergnovinaia and hundreds of other nations from around the world are about to compete in the grandest of international stages, the Summer Olympic games. Pause. Without further ado, let’s jump directly into our first area of analysis—Bergnovinaia’s prospects in the water.
The Bergnovinaian National Diving Association (BNDA for short) is sending its team of top-notch competitors to these Olympic games. The squad earned several medals in the previous Olympic games and will likely do the same here since all of the divers are amongst the top divers in the entire international community. However, prospects elsewhere in the water look bleak. Swimming will have few chances of earning a medal, with the exceptions being the competitors in the women’s 10,000 m freestyle and the men’s 10,000 marathon. Despite Bergnovinaia’s strength in Water polo and Syc swim., it is unlikely that either of these areas of competition will garner a medal, simply because of the fierceness of competition.
Archery, like the previous Olympic games, will have some very steep competition for the Bergnovinaian men’s and women’s teams to overcome. However, it is possible that if they keep their focus at these games that they could bring home several medals.
Athletics, frankly, is a mess. Much of the field is inexperienced, unseasoned competitors from track and field teams throughout Bergnovinaia’s secondary schools. However, there are the occasional competitor that stands a chance of medaling, such as the international super star and Olympic record holder in the Women’s High Jump, Ingrid Putanesca.
In badminton, a set group of the competitors from Bergnovinaia stand a chance of medaling… the others, really don’t. Competitors like Marlin Donchex and Seva Oster do not stand a chance of winning a medal and will likely be knocked out early in the competition because of their athletic inability. It is rumored that these two players were selected over other top badminton players from around the nation because of their families’ extreme wealth and philanthropic donations to the Bergnovinaian National Olympic Committee (BNOC). High officials at the BNOC are calling these accusations “atrocious” and promise a full law suit against the accusing parties.
Now then… after all that drama. Moving on to basketball. Bergnovinaia is sending its two strongest teams. In men’s, the Horuk Hawks, while the women are sending the College Station Aggies—a college team—to compete.
In cycling, both the BMX competitors and the road cyclists are likely to at least earn some medals for the Bergnovinaian nation. Fierce Prixes and tours were held to determine the five men and women that would represent Bergnovinaia in the mass start cycling competition, with only the strongest and most determine athletes advancing. Equestrian events also share a similar story because of the sport’s popularity in the vast country side of Bergnovinaia. Numerous competitions were held to eliminate the run-of-the mill competition before the official Olympic trials were held in Horuk’s Joplin stadium, the site of the Bergnovinaian National derby for horse racing.
Football and field hockey is where the other real drama is. With the World Cup going on and the dissolving of the Bergnovinaian Men’s National Field Hockey Squad over a sex scandal, two crucial spots of the BNOC delegation were left void. The BNOC were determined to fill these spots and decided on the best way to do so being using our nation’s up and coming athletes. Each year in the fall, schools from around the nation compete in the Secondary School Football Cup (SSFC) to determine the national secondary school champion of football. The BNOC made an announcement prior to the tournament that the team that won the tournament would be elected to represent their nation in the upcoming summer Olympic games. The same would go for a similar secondary school tournament in field hockey. That’s not where the drama is.
At the field hockey competition, events got out of control during a team riot after a poor call from an official. The police were called, but it was already too late. Three spectators and one player were killed in the clash, and numerous other players were sent to the hospital and treated for their injuries. After the incident, the nation guard was called in to monitor the matches after the quarterfinals in the elimination tournament. In a similar story, a parent of footballer from Riken Gymnasium shot the head official during group play after his child received a red card for a poor challenge against his opponent. Following the incident, tournament officials decided to disqualify both teams. The parent currently awaits his trial on one count of 1st degree murder. If convicted, he could be sentenced to death.
The two teams that emerged to claim victory amongst all the chaos were the Bergnovinaian Bears from Gymnasium #156 in College Station for football, and the Horuk Rams from Theodore Gymnasium in Horuk.
Now, before we continue with our analysis of Bergnovinaia’s prospects in gymnastics and tennis, as well as world cup analysis, a word from our sponsors.

Now, a quick summary of gymnastics and tennis so we can get to my favorite subject, the world cup. Bergnovinaian gymnasts medaled and the previous Olympics, and they will likely do it again. The hopes for the entire nation, however, rest on qualification for team competition in the gymnastics competitions. That would truly be the icing on the cake. Tennis is a similar story, but things have been going rough for Bergnovinaian tennis stars at international competition recently. Hopefully they can rebound here. They certainly have the ability.

And now… to the world cup.

Basically, folks, Bergnovinaia is sucking right now. We are losing to nobody’s in our group… our group almost consists of nobody’s. Come on, folks, we have qualified before, for Christ’s sake! Approaching matchday 7, Bergnovinaia only has 8 points. Here’s my analysis as to why.

Firstly, Bergnoviaia’s coach, Wilhelm Van Gregory. Sucks. Period. He can’t even manage to get the team together to beat stupid teams…. We are 2-2-2 right now in the group stage of the tournament. How are we supposed to qualify with that record????? He is the squad’s real problem, fire him, and we may be talking qualification in the next tourney. Also, what’s up with his daft 3-3-4-1 strategy for playing the pitch? 4 defenders, seriously? Those numbers should swap at put 4 in the mid-field… stop the attack before it even happens, eh? That’s enough of my rant though. You can tune in to channel 34 tonight to watch the pathetic, scrappy Bergnovinaian squad face their next competitor in group play. You may want to bring a blind fold though to shield your eyes, or perhaps even a gun to end your misery…

Change of tone!

Anyways, I hope you all have a good afternoon. Thanks for tuning in to BSRN! For all of us here at BSRN, I am Robert Hales, wishing you happy listening, and a good Olympics and World Cup. Goodbye!


**OOC: Sorry about the crappy quality of the recording. Imaginge you are in a car listening to the radio going throught static. :P (Personal suggestion is to turn your speakers down during the Olympic fanfare. :P)

Olympic Athlete Exclusives!

Sporting Review Magazine

By: Brian Olderbring, Ethan Zullersky



The Games of the VII Olympiad are quickly approaching and soon Ferkian fans will be nearly overwhelmed by the amazing talent that these Games always brings together. The astute fan will be able to witness feats of athletic prowess that they may never have imagined, the incredible power of true international competition bringing out each athletes truest potential as they strive to bring glory to themselves and their countries. Each athlete in these Games has a unique story, their own personal history which has put them in this unique position and which will motivate them throughout their competitions. We aim to introduce you to a few of these athletes so that you can better appreciate and understand them when you watch them compete.

Kyle Canaday, Flatwater Canoeing

Kyle Canaday was born outside the small town of Point Marcy in the Vox District. Point Marcy is a quaint town, nestled between Kingburg Lake the Vox National Parks. It was in this environment, with a lake on one side and a park full of rivers on the other, that Canaday became exposed to the world of canoeing. His father, James Canaday, taught him the basics at an early age, and Canaday took after the sport with a level of passion that the small town might never have seen before.

During his high school years Canaday would often travel with his family to compete at various regional events, placing well in his age group but typically being regarded as nothing more than a steady performer. He also participated with his schools Track and Field team, being a rather standard middle distance runner. Finally, in his Junior year, he stopped competing with the Track team in order to focus on his canoeing. It was a decision that paid off big, just a month after graduating high school the young Canaday shocked the entire field at the Ferkian Flatwater Championships when he took the win. He is the lone male qualifier for the canoeing events, something which he sees as "...an extreme honor, but of course the extra pressure is their too. I know that the fans back home are really watching just me. There is no one else who I can hide behind once I go out there." When asked if he was afraid of the pressure or nervous about the competition, Canaday was all smiles. "Not at all! I love the pressure, I feel like I respond well to it and can turn it into positive energy. About the competition, well...there isn't anything I can do to change it! This is the Olympics, going up against the best of the best is part of the excitement. I just see this as a great chance for me to compete against some of the best and hopefully learn a thing or two. If I place well, that is fantastic. If I don't, then I learn some skills that I cna use to help myself improve in the future. Its a win-win really."

Sarah Werten, Triathlon

Sarah Werten is no newcomer to the Ferkian triathlon community. The veteran competitor has been a constant presence in the domestic circuit, and her crushing performances at the Djelton International Triathlon and the North Hurfeld Classic Tri, Werten was the unanimous pick to lead the female triathlon contingent in her first Olympic appearance.

Werten first began competing during her school years as a member of his schools Cross Country, Swimming, and Outdoor Track teams. She solid performances in all three seasons, including a Small School District title in swimming her senior year and All-District Honors in Cross Country and the 3000m run during track. She earned a scholarship to St.Francis College of Northern Lengfield, where she competed for two seasons with the swimming team and continued to run on her own. Speaking about these first two years in college, Werten said that "I suffered a few overuse injuries and missed a bit of training, so I ended up having to spend a lot of time on the bike, getting in some cardio. Thats when I found that that I was pretty good at biking too. I had always known that I could hold my own running and swimming, but being injured during that first season really got me thinking about triathlon."

Werten would drop her scholarship after her Sophomore year, but continued to train with the swimming team several days a week. She added in extra running and her parents bought her a bike for a Christmas present. It was all that she needed, by the end of her Junior year she was ready to start competing. "That first race...well, I learned a ton. I showed up and expected to dust all these people, just knock their socks off. And really, I was way outclassed. I can remember starting out right with the leaders in the swim and thinking to myself 'oh God...I still have to bike and run after this'. Honestly I felt like giving up so many times during that race." Werten didn't give up though, and came back several months later. This time, she won. "Winning the St. Francis College Open Tri was huge for me. Yea, it was a small race, but it gave me so much in the way of confidence and validation in what I was doing." Since that time Werten has competed domestically, winning and placing highly in almost every major Ferkian triathlon, a trend which she hopes to extend to these Olympic Games.

Janice Garcia, Archery

Janice began honing her archery skills at the ripe age of six. That was when she began hunting with her father during the fall bow season. She soon became involved in local hunting clubs and started participating in target shooting competitions. Speaking about those early years, Garcia says that "It was just something that I loved doing. It probably seemed odd for someone my age, especially a girl, to spend so much time in such a violent sport. But it was just what I loved to do. My family was always really supportive. I didn't think of myself as being anything great at it, I just did it for fun. I barely paid attention to the competition for a long time."

But the competition sure paid attention to her. At the age of 15 Garcia won the national junior title...with a score that would have won the senior division! Finally she began to focus more on her competition and really honed her skills. Over the twelve months following that title she went on to win nine domestic competitions, out of the ten that she entered. The only one that she didn't win she placed first to a former Olympiad. After graduating high school Garcia decided to postpone her education so as to focus on her archery. The next several years she spent working assorted part time jobs and training under some of the most renowned archers in the nation, which continued to pay off big. The Olympics represent the culmination of years of hard work and amazing competition.

Mark DeMalley, 1500m Run

Mark DeMalley surprised everyone when he placed second in the Ferkian Olympic Track and Field Trials for the 1500m. To be honest, DeMalley surprised everyone just by qualifying for getting out of his heat. The high school junior was known as a good runner, no doubt about that, but no was expects a sixteen year old to be able to hold their own against a top flight field of Collegiate and Professional athletes. He was the final qualifier for the meet anyway, barely sneaking under the required mark and earning his spot in the starting lists. A spot which he made the most of, placing third in his heat to advance on time, then running a near perfect tactical race.

DeMalley is a junior at Mayor John Marcus High School in Leopoldville, and has been a member of the varsity team there since he was in the 8th grade. He competes in both Cross Country and Track and holds the school records for the 800m, 1500m, and 3000m distances. Last year he placed third in the High School Championships for the 800 meter, and in Cross Country this year he was second in the Championship race, after winning his districts Large School title. DeMalleys coach, Vincent Sirgo, had the following to say. "Mark is a one in a million sort of talent, and he has really come into his own this year. Going into this race we knew he could do well and were aiming to make the final. Of course, making the Olympic team as a high school athlete, especially the Ferkian Athletics team, is an insane level of accomplishment. But if I know anything about Mark it is that he won't let this get to his head. He is very level minded he understands that he is in a great position, but he can't get cocky. He has to keep putting in the work if he wants to see just how great he can become."

MERMAIOADA LOOKING FOR RECORD HAUL

Aquatic expert looking to do the Double



Vilita's Actalia Mermaioada might have been a bit confused when he had to transport over to Krytenia for the games of the VII Olympiad. If you had previously told Mermaioada he was going to Krytenia, he might have said "I'll meet you there in a few hours", drove to the coast, and had a swim.

But Vilita's former neighbors have taken a fleet a army grade helicopters and moved their borders far far away. It won't stop Mermaioada's determination to win, in fact, it may just help, as Mermaioada is likely to get much more rest in transport then if he had swam all the way to Krytenia before the games.

Of course, Mermaioada is the star name on the Vilita & Turori delegation's men's Aquatic team. The backbone of the Vilita & Turori squad, Memaioada will certainly be disappointed to come out of the games with anything less than at least one gold medal. But swimming is not Mermaioada's only expertise. The young Vilitan has appeared 5 times for the Vilitan National Football team, recently signing his first professional contract with Strike FC before moving to the Turoki Tide. Mermaioada, already in Krytenia for the aquatics, was also added to Vilita & Turori's Olympic Football roster as a backup player, who will join up with the team when the aquatics schedule permits, and/or once the Aquatics competitions have concluded.

It is not the first time Mermaioada has mixed Aquatics with Football. Mermaioada famously navigated the Mor Elesbed in Cotdelapoms from Côte-Est to Île d'Elisabeth in the middle of Vilita's Cup of Harmony 49 campaign - 'just to say he did it'. Mermaioada successfully completed the journey, arriving in Île d'Elisabeth where the Jungle Cats next match was in under 5 hours, but perhaps the after affects were not too kind.

Mermaioada was hoping to attract interest for his true love; "Aquatic sports don't get a lot of respect" Mermaioada was quoted as saying. "So if by doing this swim, at the same time as the Cup of Harmony, means that some Footie fans will take a temporary interest in Aquatic Sports, then job done. If a few of them take a permanent interest in them, even better."

First off, Mermaioada was nearly overtaken by a passing cargo ship. That would have been the end of the story right there, and no one would have been any more interested in Aquatics. Luckily, that didn't happen. Otherwise, a dehydrated Mermaioada just wasn't the same when Cup of Harmony play resumed for the Jungle Cats, and it really marked the beginning of the end for Mermaioada's career with the Vilitan National Team. It would be another 3 seasons before Strike FC came a calling to potentially save Mermaioada's footballing career, leading to this second chance to be included in the squad for the Olympic Games.

Frederikstadt Herald

Olympic Edition

June 13, 2012


With the Seventh Olympic Games less than a week away, it's time to look at the medal contenders from Thatius. With over two hundred athletes, this is Thatius' largest delegation to the Olympic Games, surpassing the delegations sent to compete in Lasft, Cafundeu, as well as Neverend, Liventia. From tennis to swimming, new and old Olympic champions and contenders are ready to compete in the world's most prestigious sports competition. Here we take a look at who might bring home medals for Thatius.



Đorđe Cetković - Swimming

Image


In the Thatius Swimming Championships held last year in Frederikstadt, Đorđe Cetković came in first in the Men’s 1,500m Freestyle and the Men’s 200m Breaststroke events. He also finished second in the Men’s 400m Freestyle. With these results, he booked himself a ticket to the next Olympics, and earned himself a chance to compete for a coveted Olympic Medal. After posting a near Olympic Record time for the Men's 1,500m, 14:33.06, Cetković has been heralded as one of Thatius' best hopes in contending for a medal in swimming. He also looks to make history as the first Thatian man to win a medal in the Summer Olympic Games.

Other athletes to look out for:
Olga Koravo - Women’s 100 m Freestyle - Silver Medalist at the VI Olympiad
Kate Dulgehru - Women’s 400 m Freestyle - Blew the competition away at the Thatius Swimming Championships to claim a gold medal




Novak Dlouhý - Tennis

Image


A more mature Novak Dlouhý emerged from the trials of the International Tennis Association. He entered as a young, temper-tantrum prone teen, and left with experience, maturity, and determination. Even though it's been months since the last ITA Tournament, Novak has still kept up international play, competing in various tournaments, including the Citiz Championship Circuit. Interestingly enough, he fell to compatriot Vittoria Panaro in the Quarterfinals of the Devonthorpe Armstrong-McShirley Crown, and Vittoria was eventually crowned champion of the tournament.

Back in the ITA, Novak became a Top-3 player, winning two tournaments and reaching the quarterfinals or better in several others. He seeks to improve his last Olympic result in Men's Singles, where he reached the 3rd Round, only to be defeated by Rocco Davis of Delaclava. With so much experience under his belt, now seems the most opportune moment for Novak to make a run for an Olympic Medal. If he doesn't achieve his goal in Men's Singles, he still has another chance to win a medal. He and Vittoria Panaro have teamed up to compete in the Mixed Doubles part of the tournament, something the two have prior experience in, after they competed together in the last Olympics and have been active together in the Scott Cup.

Other athletes to look out for:
Rob Djokić - Men's Singles - A rising star who reached the QF's of the Devonthorpe Armstrong-McShirley Crown in Civil Citizenry
Vittoria Panaro - Women's Singles & Mixed Doubles - A veteran of the ITA and winner of many international tournaments

Chancellery Sporting News (CSN)

[Two analysts sit behind a desk. They are turned so that they somewhat face each other, but well still having their face presented forward to the camera. Both men are of a trim build and average height, the man on the left is slightly taller and has darker hair, well his compatriot has a more blondish color to his hair. An intro jingle plays as an intro real, made up of highlights from previous Olympic Games, is played. This title sequence ends with the words "Athlete Exclusive!"]


Tim - "Hello and welcome back to the CSN coverage of the VII Olympiad. I'm joined her in our Emberton studio by co-host Nate Leopold. Today we are excited to bring you an exclusive interview with one of the most impressive athletes in the entire Ferkian delegation."

Nate - "Yes, this man is truly a Ferkian legend. We've spoken about him already in our programming, but he recently contacted us and expressed an interest in coming onto the show and answering any questions that we might have about his preparation and what we should expect from these Games. We are very excited to welcome Olympic Gold Medalist Kyle Reper into the studio today!"

[A man enters from stage left wearing a crisp grey suit with a red tie. He is thin and of slight build, with dark brown hair and clear green eyes. He gives a grin to the camera as he approaches the desk and shakes the hands of both men before sitting down."

Tim - "Kyle, welcome to the studio and welcome to Emberton."

Kyle - "Thanks guys, its a pleasure to be here. Of course its also really exciting to be in Emberton, getting ready to compete again in the Olympics."

Nate - "We've heard that some of the rules have changed this year for the Olympic team. Do you think this means you will get to see more of the city and experience more of the Olympics outside of just your competition?"

Kyle - "Yes, definitely. After that whole mess with the Winter Olympics they have loosened the regulations just a bit. We are allowed to travel out now during certain times, tour the city and just enjoy a bit of the atmosphere. So far I've been very impressed with what I've seen of Emberton."

Tim - "How do you think those rule changes will impact the performance of the delegation here at the Games? Are you at all worried about the increased number of distractions?"

Kyle - "No, not really. The way I see it, we are all here because we want to compete and to compete well. Our athletes aren't going to be going out clubbing or partying and messing up their preparation. It will probably help, it gives everyone a way to blow off some steam and provides a bit of a distraction. You don't want to spend your whole time here sitting in your room and just mulling over your event. Wastes too much mental energy, and leaves you flat for the competition, at least in my opinion."

Nate - "So, speaking about competition. You've been one and off a bit since you won gold two Olympiads ago. What has your approach been like coming into these Games? Specifically, do you have anything you can say about your performance in Abdian?"

Kyle - "Abdian was what it had to be. It wasn't a fast race for me, I'll admit that, but it gave me what I needed at the time. I went into that meet hoping to do well, but the primary goal was just to get the mind use to racing again, keep everything mentally fresh. I planned this whole season with two 'peaks', the Trials and now the Olympics. I knew that training wise my body wouldn't be prepared for a perfect race in Abdian, but I also knew that I needed a race between the Trials and now just to keep everything up to date."

Tim - "Since you mentioned your training, can you give us any insight into what you've been doing to prepare for this competition?"

Kyle - "After the last Olympics my coach and I sat down and really poured over my training logs. I've been keeping records since I was a sophomore in high school, so we had plenty of information to look at. What we tried to do was find patterns, what had lead to good performances and what didn't. Then we looked at the science to figure out what each component had probably done. Based on that we put together a comprehensive training plan, which like I said, is focused on doing well two times this year."

Tim - "What does this plan look like? Can you give us any information on specific workouts?"

Kyle - "Sure. Of course you have to remember, I can't give you the whole picture, we don't have that much time. But its been a lot of strength work. Looking back we found that I raced really well without a lot of the speed work that so many athletes, especially foreigners, swear by. So we focused on keeping my mileage up nice and high, and doing plenty of long intervals and hard tempo runs. I had a twelve week block where I averaged 145 miles per week, with a peak week right at 155. For intervals we did a lot of repeat kilometers or repeat miles at various paces, both on the track or on grass."

Nate - "Well, it sure sounds like you are prepared well and confident in your chances. Looking at the competition, what do you hope to achieve here?"

Kyle - "With something like this it is almost impossible to tell. The competition is so high here, and there are so many nations involved, that anything could happen. I just want to make sure that I'm in contention at the end of the race to make my move. If I can do that then I really like my chances here."

Nate - "And will you be competing at all after the Olympics? You said earlier that you were focused on peaking twice, at the Trials and now. In the past though you've usually done a brief domestic tour, is that still the plan?"

Kyle - "Most likely, yes. I'm tentativly scheduled to run in at the Coventry Grand Prix and then two weeks later at the Royal Food Company Distance Festival, out in Geratio. I'll probably race the steeplechase at one of those, then maybe a 1500."

Tim - "You've faced a lot of criticism in the past, especially after your performances at the last Olympics. How do you handle that sort of feedback from the public?"

Kyle - "I try to use it, or ignore it. I know I'm defined by what I do, not by peoples impressions of what I do. No matter what I am an Olympic champion, that is something that they can't take away from me."



Olympic Village
Emberton, Kyrtenia


No time had been wasted in transporting the Ferkian delegation to Emberton in preparation for the Olympics. The Ministry of Sport had agreed with the National Olympic Committees recommendation that an early moving date would be best, minimizing the potential for poor performance caused by jet lag and allowing the athletes time to adjust fully to the local climate and culture. The extended time between heading to the host city and actually beginning competition reduced the stress for the athletes and allowed them a little bit of time to explore around the local area. Citizens of Kyrtenia's capital city might have their first exposure to foreign athletes in the form of Ferkian competitors who were allowed to roam around the city in the time between their mandatory training sessions and scheduled meals or physio appointments.

They tended to travel in groups, and were encouraged to wear team gear at all times when the left the Olympic Village, as well as to keep their passports and relevant identification with them always. Mostly they visited the typical tourist spots, touring the heart of the city or visiting the parks in some of the nearby suburbs. For the most part they were cordial, knowing that repercussions would be dealt out upon anyone who grievously offended the locals and tarnished the Kingdoms reputation. Athletes who had been on previous Olympic teams were surprised by the free reign which they were being given. After the fallout from the recent Winter Olympics the team regulations had been loosened somewhat, allowing the athletes to mingle just a bit more with the culture around them. Many commented that the changes reduced the stress, they felt more at ease and were in turn more confident about their abilities. A few athletes even talked about hoping to meet some of their competitors from foreign nations, an idea which would have bordered on treason in previous Olympiads.

Vekaiyu: Summer Olympic Preview
Reporting for V3 News Services, Rin Slakori

EMBERTON - The Krytenian sun faded across the horizon as the Vekaiyun delegation touched down in Netherfield International Airport early this evening. The third-ever Summer Delegation from Vekaiyu arrived on schedule, sparing enough time for the athletes and their coaches, trainers, and staff to reach their accommodations and perhaps fancy the cityscape or get in some extra training in preparation for the important Olympics.

Vekaiyu did well in its second-ever Summer Games - an eighth place finish with a total of thirteen gold medals, fourteen silver, and nineteen bronze to round out what had been an impressive jump from their first year of contention. Fresh off lifted regulations for particular sports placed by then-Premier Selvala McEva, some of which included the banning of shooting competitors to 'preserve the distinction between sport and war' and restricting Vekaiyun lifters and wrestlers because such sports 'were not intended for the vulpine physique', the nation did well to shed such rigid connotations and prove that Vekaiyu was definitely ready to compete in all events.

Perhaps most shocking was their gymnastics corps. The team from Vekaiyu showed promise in the Fifth Summer Games, but it wasn't until the Sixth Summer Games that they literally became the team to beat. Leading the field with three golds, four silvers, and four bronze, the Vekaiyun team relied upon the talents of all gymnasts to become the team to beat for the Seventh Summer Games. Stapen Skilusi, with his two golds and one bronze, lead the charge and established his dominance in the sport at Cafundeu. In the Women's balance beam, Vekaiyun gymnasts dominated the field with Leina Uverilsetrese taking gold and Yva Kire nabbing the bronze. With their roster virtually the same for gymnastics this year as it was in Cafundeu, Vekaiyu is anticipating a repeat performance.

"We'll see," Stapen Skilusi said during a press conference later in the day. "We still have a lot to prove. We need to show we're consistently ready to perform and not just some flash in the pan team

Another surprise was Vekaiyu's performance in Boxing and shooting, two sports than had once been difficult to compete in for a Vekaiyun athlete. "Take that!" Isii Sileveri shouted after winning her gold medal in what was later confirmed to be a strike against the old regime. "I was psyched," she said of the incident upon arriving in Krytenia. "We're told before we leave for the destination country that we're supposed to represent Vekaiyu well from abroad. And I think I did exactly that. We're fighters. Not even our own government can tell us no!"

Vekaiyu's shooting team has changed much more than their boxing squad, which looks set to improve upon their impressive ingress in Cafundeu. "We've shuffled the boards a bit to better fit the molds of this competition," head shooting coach Mikhail Lastrevostru commented prior to leaving for the host nation. "We're confident in our abilities and believe we can strengthen our [2011 performance in Cafundeu]." Some concern was voiced over Makswel Venskegi, a bronze medalist from last year, as it was revealed lingering side effects from a minor arm injury in December could hinder his performance. The coach dismissed such claims, saying, "[Makswel] is going to be just fine. He's motivated to show just how sure a Vekaiyun shooter can be, especially when one considers the recent Occupation of Listonia."

Indeed, sentiments are abound for the recent occupation of neighboring state Listonia by Vekaiyun soldiers is on the minds of many athletes. "My brother is stationed in Cestinglavoiga," diver Ankya Suleri said. "But it's comforting to know I'm not alone in this. A lot of us have relatives and friends fighting for Listonians over there. At least I can know that while I'm fighting here, he's fighting a more important battle over there."

Diving, like Swimming, has much to prove for the Summer Games this year. In their first Summer Games, Vekaiyu finished second only to rival Kelssek in the swimming medal tally. The next year, however, they fell off the pace, falling into a tie for fifth with four medals, seven less than in 2010. "Let the analysts analyze," gold medalist Riyna McAves said. "The pressure is on our group to perform this year. We had difficulties last year in getting over the death of [Kira Niiru] and some of us dealing with the press, but this year we're one year older and ready more than ever to perform. We won the [Third] Water World Championships, let's go."

And win they did. Vekaiyun swimmers, fueled in part by the frustrations experienced at Cafundeu, took home a horde that included ten gold, ten silver, and five bronze. Clearly, they had much to prove, and they proved they could settle down and let their true talents shine through.

"We keep moving forward," young swimming phenom Ikrisia Sulevire said. Now 17 years old, many predict her to shelve the pressure of leadership and instead focus on her performance.

Vinsent Ivere, the flag bearer for the Vekaiyun Olympic team, has managed to monopolize the men's 100m freestyle event for the past two years, including setting an Olympic Record last year. "I tell you, brother, we're more focused this year than last," the imposing 6'4'' swimmer from Sinliesla said to reporters. "We have fight, talent, and charisma. We can also swim well, too."

Frankyo Busirvi, among the newest member of the Vekaiyun swimming elite, is especially pumped for their performance. "We're just so much stronger this year than last year," he added. When asked if he will celebrate a medal with a beer, the young athlete responded, "that's a clown question, bro."

Wrestling and martial arts look to be very strong for Vekaiyu this year, too. "I took gold last year," Keslo Nikeri reminded V3 News Services, "and I don't plan on giving it away this year." Cocky? Perhaps. But one cannot discount the style of the young grappler, who was called "spider arms" back home during a wrestling contest by a fellow opponent. The name has since stuck.

A potential surprise this year could arise from Vekaiyu's athletics, as the group continues to change and get better as Vekaiyu continues to gain experience. But many athletes from this department are concerned over the amount of cuts their squad has had to endure this time around. "To say we've got a chip on our shoulder would be an understatement," last year's gold medalist in the women's 400m Elana Hureri joked with reporters. "We're all a little concerned. It's like, yeah, we know many other programs made a lot of strides last year, but so did we."

V3 News Services will continue to cover events out of Krytenia when they happen. All staff members wish the Vekaiyun squad the best of luck during competitions, and wish to extend a thank-you to the staff in Krytenia who made the Summer Games possible this year.
