RIO DE JANEIRO Cheap Men's Nike Air VaporMax Plus Triple White Shoes , March 9 (Xinhua) -- Golf returns to the Olympics after a 112-year absence this August.

The delivery of The Olympic course has experienced several delays due to land disputes and environmental issues but was finally handed over shortly before Christmas.

The 7,133-yard course designed by Gil Hanse looked in good condition as the all Brazilian line up assembled by the first tee.

The PGA Tour were unable to persuade any of the worlds top players to compete. Alexandre Rocha was the top ranked player at 588th in the world.

With a relatively small crowd one was able to walk the fairly narrow fairways virtually alone.

The course looks like it will favour those able to hit the ball long and straight.

The course is situated in an area close to the dunes and alive with the sound of birds and other wildlife.

Whilst the course in my opinion still requires some finishing touches it will no doubt prove popular post games in the local area whilst providing a magnet for business tourism in Barra.
NAIROBI, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) remained silent a day after England international Mike Friday resigned as the country's Sevens team head coach.

However, players expressed their disgust on social media over the resignation of one of the most successful coaches to have been in charge of the team.

Will Ambaka on his Facebook page expressed his shock on the quitting of Friday Cheap Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Shoes All White , a man who has helped him raise his game. ""This is very sad,"" said Ambaka.

Collins Injera, Kenya's top scorer in the International Rugby Board (IRB) World Series posted: ""Sad news indeed. You will be missed.""

Another player who expressed his anguish was Horace Otieno who tweeted ""Noooooooo...I guess it is what it is...so sad. Speechless!""

And as the news of the Englishman's resignation sinks in, halfway through his two-year contract which he signed in May 2012 Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 97 Italy Flag Shoes Metallic Gold , it is emerging that New Zealand, South Africa and Fiji have had their coaches in discussion with the union over a possible replacement by Friday.

This has been going on silently at the Union headquarters, once it became clear that the country was struggling to meet the financial demands of Friday and his assistant Chris Brown.

South Africa stands out as the most likely destination where the next Kenya coach will come from as the Union has a mutual working understanding with them on development of rugby in Kenya.

Already South Africa's Jerome Paarwater has been hired as Kenya 15s head coach and was in-charge of the team in Madagascar last month where they won the Africa CAR Cup tournament.

He is also tasked with leading the team to 2015 rugby World Cup.

Current South Africa Sevens head coach Paul Treu might be the candidate to replace Friday, should he relinquish his post after a dismal show this season at the Moscow World Cup.

But local coaches had mixed reaction over the resignation of Friday. Mitch Ocholla Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 97 Ultra'17 Pink Blush Shoes , the man Friday replaced said the unbearable condition that forced the Englishman out is a confirmation that local tacticians are not to blame and are always sacrificed yet the problem is rooted in the boardroom.

""We have faced numerous challenges as coaches,"" said Ocholla. ""I can understand why Friday resigned.""

Benjamin Ayimba, the only coach who like Friday led Kenya to the semi finals of the IRB Sevens World Cup in Dubai back in 2009, said it absolves him of any blame when he was kicked out because he could not steer the team to the level the union had wanted.

""I have always said hiring a foreign coach is not sustainable. They want huge salaries and we have meagre resources in Kenya rugby. In the long run Cheap Men's Nike Air Max 97 Shoes Wheat Gold Terra Blush , the union will have to return to hire a local coach, somebody who knows the difficulties and challenges the sport faces in the country. Foreigners want an ideal system, we have nothing like that here,"" said Ayimba.

Kenya is to hire a local coach and to give him the same resources that you would give to a foreigner.""
