RIO DE JANEIRO Quinten Rollins Packers Jersey , March 2 (Xinhua) -- Rio de Janeiro mayor Eduardo Paes inaugurated the Youth Arena and the Deodoro Stadium on Wednesday. Both facilities will be used in the Olympic Games to be held in the Brazilian city in August. While unveiling the facilities, Paes said the only facility that still worries authorities is the velodrome due to delays. The Youth Arena and the Deodoro Stadium form part of the Deodoro Sports Complex in the eastern zone of Rio de Janeiro. The Youth Arena will be used for female basketball, fencing in the pentathlon and wheelchair fencing in the Olympics and Paralympics and the Deodoro Stadium will be used for the rugby tournaments Damarious Randall Packers Jersey , seven-a-side paralympic soccer and three pentathlon categories. Deodoro will be the second most important complex in the Rio Olympics after the Olimpic Park in terms of the number of competitions that will take place inside it. Work on the complex began in 2014 and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Rio's Mayor's office were worried as there were some delays in construction. In the same complex, four facilities have already been inaugurated and tested - the mountain bike track, the BMX track Kenny Clark Packers Jersey , the kayaking circuit in rough waters and the hockey center. "Many said the Deodoro facilities would not be ready in time for the Olympics. Thankfully everything is now ready in this complex," said Paes during the inauguration. The mayor promised the velodrome, which is 83 percent complete Vince Biegel Packers Jersey , will be inaugurated with a trial event scheduled for April. Paes said the delays were down to serious problems surrounding the company responsible for the works. For that reason, Paes agreed to contract another company to continue with the construction. "We have had problems with this company for some time but the company has decided to outsource and employ a bigger company with larger capacity and more employees. For that reason we will be able to meet our estimated deadlines," said the mayor. At the weekend Jamaal Williams Packers Jersey , the Deodoro Stadium will be tested out with an international rugby sevens tournament which will bring together 96 players from eight countries. This tournament will not only test the facilities but also the organization within the stadium. The Youth Arena will officially open its doors on March 10 when the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) World Cup gets underway.One of Spain?s oldest national sports and also the one which is loved by many people is also the most controversial. Opponents to bullfighting have fought many passionate battles with the sports devotees over the years as they generally condemn the barbaric nature of the way in which the bulls are slaughtered and to their minds dehumanising a so-called civilized society. Supporters on the other hand consistently claim that bullfighting is nothing more than a spiritual art form depicting man's struggle against nature and it is generally regarded as a good day out.

The regional government in Barcelona, which considers itself as one of the cultural centres of Europe, gained widespread support for their proposal in 2004 to become an anti-bullfighting city as they considered that the sport tarnished their image in the eyes of the world.

The campaign has since gained momentum but there are still a vast band of followers who believe that the time-honoured traditions should be maintained and that to ban bullfighting is unimaginable.

Why is bullfighting so popular in Spain?

It is widely thought that Spain?s early settlers Montravius Adams Packers Jersey , some 4000 years ago, slaughtered bulls in ritual sacrifices to their Gods and that when the Moors invaded Spain in the 8th century they introduced some type of man versus bull battles. Legend has it that El Cid, a Spanish hero of the 11th century Josh Jones Packers Jersey , was the first man to slay a bull in an organised bullfight.

Bull jousting was developed in medieval times by the Spanish aristocracy where men would pit their wits against the rampaging bulls from horseback. Not to be left out of the ?fun?, peasants of the time developed their own versions of this pastime, only in their version the man was on foot. Sometime during the eighteenth century Kevin King Packers Jersey , bullrings and organized events similar to the ones we have come to recognize today became ingrained into Spanish culture.

Bullfighting was brought to the attention of the world by the words of Ernest Hemmingway, an early 20th century American novelist. His best selling novels, ?The Sun Also Rises? and ?Death in the Afternoon? immortalized the sport as he described it as ?man?s ultimate challenge?.

Against such a rich history Marwin Evans Jersey , it can be understood why bullfighting is so popular in Spain and with this in mind, some may even say it should be condoned. Almost every large city and many of the smaller towns and villages all over Spain have a bullring with the organized bullfight being the focal point of fiestas (local and national) held throughout the year.

About the bullfight

Only bulls which are from a specific ancient bloodline are bred for fighting with Spain now being the only country in the world preserving this particular species.

A bullfight normally takes place in the early afternoon or evening with six of the fighting bulls being slain by up to three matadors and their helpers, the picador (horseman) and the banderillos. A series of elaborate moves and daring passes are performed by the matador before the final act of thrusting his sword between the bull?s shoulder blades. If the audience approve of his performance they will wave white handkerchiefs as a signal to the fight president to present one (or both) of the bulls ears to the matador as a trophy.

Seat prices in the bullring vary depending upon their location. As most bullfights start in the early afternoon when the sun is at it?s highest Geronimo Allison Jersey , seats that are in the shade dem.
