  3. Pyeongchang 2018: Russia remains banned from Winter Paralympics A final decision on whether Russia can compete at the 2018 Winter Paralympics will be taken in January after the International Paralympic Committee upheld the ban on Tuesday. Russia was banned from all Paralympic competition by the IPC in August 2016 after revelations of systematic doping. The IPC governing board said on Tuesday there were still five key measures to be met before Russia's reinstatement. The Winter Paralympics begin in South Korea on 9 March, 2018. In December 2016, the IPC created an independent taskforce which set the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) a number of conditions that must be met before their athletes can return to competitive disability sport events run by the IPC. In September, the taskforce highlighted seven key measures that needed to be met before it is able to recommend the reinstatement of the RPC, and in an update on Tuesday, there were still five which had not been satisfied. The five key measures are: The approval of the RPC's constitution by the IPC membership department. Completion of all budget-related aspects of the reinstatement criteria. The provision and confirmation of certain additional information by the RPC regarding personnel and governance (reinstatement criteria 10 and 14.2), as specified by the taskforce. The full reinstatement of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (Rusada) by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada). The provision of an official response specifically and adequately addressing the findings made by Professor McLaren. In the interim period, Russian athletes can compete as neutrals in qualification events across four sports - alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing and snowboard. The measure, first announced in September, aims to allow Russia to enter its qualified athletes into the Games should it have its suspension lifted in time. "As the deadline for athlete entries for Pyeongchang 2018 is 23 February, the IPC Governing Board's next meeting between 26-28 January really is the last chance for Russia to meet the criteria in time for the Games," said new IPC President Andrew Parsons. "Although the IPC Governing Board continues to be impressed at the level of co-operation and progress made so far by the RPC, it is united in its decision to maintain the suspension as the reinstatement criteria have not yet been met in full. "The RPC is making headway with the IPC on three of the five remaining reinstatement criteria, however sadly, and much to our growing disappointment and frustration, there is a lack of progress regarding an official response from the Russian authorities specifically and adequately addressing the McLaren findings and evidence." http://www.bbc.com/sport/disability-sport/42423134
  4. Tokyo 2020 Ceremonies

    Filmmaker Yamazaki likely to direct 2020 Tokyo Olympic ceremonies TOKYO The organizing committee of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics is planning to appoint film director Takashi Yamazaki among others to direct the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 sports events, sources close to the matter said Wednesday. Yamazaki, 53, best known for his film series "Always -- Sunset on Third Street," is expected to play a key role in creating the format and stories for the ceremonies, the sources said. Yamasaki's "Always" depicts life in a close-knit Tokyo neighborhood after World War II and its third episode features the Japanese capital in 1964, when the previous summer Olympics was held. He also directed the war drama film "The Eternal Zero" and animation film "Stand By Me Doraemon." The production team of the Olympics and Paralympics ceremonies will also likely include those involved in the performance by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the closing ceremony of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, during which the premier played the role of Mario, of Mario Bros., according to the sources. Pop singer Ringo Sheena and traditional Japanese kyogen actor Nomura Mansai are also likely to join the group, the sources added. The opening and closing ceremonies of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics will each be presented in four parts, based on such themes as peace, coexistence, reconstruction and the future. © KYODO https://japantoday.com/category/sports/olympics-filmmaker-yamazaki-eyed-as-director-of-2020-tokyo-olympics-ceremonies?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

  6. Medals to be awarded at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Parlympics were unveiled Monday, with a nod to the Korean culture and traditions. The competition's organizing committee said the Paralympics medals are based on the same design principles of the medals for the Winter Olympics, in that both have been inspired by the Korean culture and its alphabet, hangeul. Lee Suk-woo, a South Korean industrial designer who designed the Olympic medals, also produced the Paralympic medals. The Paralympics will take place from March 9 to 18. This photo provided by the organizing committee for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Paralympics on Dec. 11, 2017, shows the medals to be awarded at the competition. (Yonhap) The medals are 92.5 millimeters in diameter and 9.42 millimeters in width. They have the hangeul consonants of the words PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games engraved around the edge. Traditional patterns, including clouds, mountains, wind and wood, each symbolizing the nature of PyeongChang and its home province of Gangwon, grace the obverse. The Paralympic Games' symbol of three agitos are on the front side of the medal, with the Paralympics' logo and the name of each sport featured on the back. The Paralympic medals' lanyard has much the same design as that for the Winter Olympics, in that both have snowflake patterns embroidered on "Gapsa," a type of cloth used in the traditional Korean dress of hanbok. Light teal and light red were used in consistency with the look of the quadrennial competition. The curved pattern of the medal case was inspired by the Korean traditional beauty, the organizers said. At the PyeongChang Paralympics, 133 sets of medals will be awarded across six sports and 80 events. "The Paralympic Winter Games medals for PyeongChang 2018 are a symbol of equality, creativity, culture and passion," said Lee Hee-beom, the top organizer of the competition. "The work that has gone into the design and manufacturing of the medals has been world class, and we are all looking forward to the moment when the first medal will be awarded to the world's best Paralympic athletes next year."
