Kunning um IOC málið

isf.fo - Frí, 24/10/2014 - 12:00


ÍSF hevur síðani 1984, tá upprunaliga umsóknin um limaskap varð send, roynt at fingið formligan fund við Altjóða Olympisku Nevndina, IOC.

IOC hevur seinastu nógvu árini borið seg undan, av tí at teir ikki vilja fundast við lond, sum ikki eru sjálvstøðugir statir, viðurkendir av altjóða samfelagnum.

Mikudagin 17. september eydnaðist endiliga at fáa fund í lag í Lausanne. Á fundinum luttóku Pere Miró, Director of IOC NOC Relations Department, Jérôme Poivy, Head of Institutional Relations and Governance, NOC Relations Department, Petur Elias Petersen, ÍSF-forseti, Sølvi Reinert Hansen, fyrrverandi ÍSF-forseti, og Niels Nygaard, formaður í danska ítróttasambandinum.

Umboðini fyri IOC gjørdu greitt, at Føroyar ikki lúka treytirnar í Olympic Charter, sum vórðu broyttar í 1996 – at nýggj limalond skulu vera sjálvstøðugir statir, sum eru viðurkendir av altjóða samfelagnum.

Føroysku umboðini býttu tilfar út og greiddu frá gongdini í málinum, sum vit kendu tað. Serligur dentur varð lagdur á umsóknina frá 1984, sum ongantíð hevði fingið eina veruliga viðgerð.

Til tað upplýstu umboðini hjá IOC, at tá lógirnar vórðu broyttar í 1996, varð samstundis avgerð tikin um, at umsóknirnar, sum lógu inni, ikki skuldu viðgerast eftir gomlu treytunum.

ÍSF bað um at fáa hetta skrivliga, og hevur IOC síðani svarað soleiðis:

“Since the applicable rules of the Olympic Charter regarding the recognition of National Olympic Committees were amended in 1996, the IOC could no longer process any application which did not meet the new conditions and, in particular, the definition of a country as an “independent State recognised by the international community”.

Við hesum er greitt, at umsóknin frá 1984 ikki verður viðgjørd av IOC sambært gomlu reglunum.

Tilmælið hjá starvsnevndini er, at ÍSF heldur á fram sum nú, at skaffa okkara ítróttafólki atgongd til olympiskar kappingar, og at royna at skaffa Føroyum atgongd til eitt nú førleikamenning og onnur tiltøk hjá Altjóða Olympisku Nevndini.

Verandi umsókn liggur inni hjá IOC og verður ikki viðgjørd av teimum.

susvim.fo - Hós, 23/10/2014 - 00:31

Svimjiklæðir eru kostanðarmikil at skaffa sær, men um man fer rætt framm, so kunnu tey halda leingi. Danska svimjistjørnan Rikke Møller Pedersen skrivar soleiðis:

Badetøj
Jeg lovede i sidste uge, at jeg ville give nogle tip til, hvordan du kan holde få din badedragt til at holde længere.
Her er så mine erfaringer, så du ikke behøver at bruge en formue på badetøj og stævnebadetøj.

Her er de så:
Badetøj der holder længere er lavet af noget lignende dette: Polyester 83% Polyurethan 17% og som er klor resistent.

1) Husk at skylle din badedragt i koldt vand efter brug.

2) Lad være med at vride vandet ud af din badedragt, som om det er en karklud. Hold dig til kun at hænge den op.

3) Hæng din badedragt til tørre så hurtigt som muligt.

4) Hæng aldrig din badedragt til tørre på vrangen.

5) Vask den ikke i vaskemaskinen.

Stig Severinsen Swimming with Icebergs

Swimmer's Daily - Mik, 22/10/2014 - 08:31
Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that’s crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Or at least, like a crystal palace. National Geographic shows us how a free diver explores the ice cold waters below. See Sploid
