The whole team arrived on Saturday in Lausanne and was working in the preparation of the last details of the presentation.
Previously on Sunday, a rehearsal took place in IOC Headquarters, where all the technical details and other issues were revised.

The presentation was well received by the IOC Executive Board; it was covering all aspects of both the World Karate Federation and of the sport of Karate, including the added value that Karate will give to the Olympic Program and vice-versa, and also the impact that the Olympism of Karate will have on the push of the social values of Karate worldwide. Other outstanding features highlighted were the universality of the sport and the simplicity and low cost that the incorporation of Karate to the Games would suppose.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Yesterday I looked at this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Nhl2k game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

The writer of frenchboxing.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: The only way out is through. I will be back.
