NANJING Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Black UK , China, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Maria Ifteni from Romania looked down at the cutting board in front of her, grabbed a knife in her right hand and began to slice and dice a selection of vegetables in a culture program at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games.
Ifteni then dumped the vegetables into a shallow frying pan and listened intently as head chef Shi Cal listed the spices to be added to the mix to make a vegetable curry.
"Coriander?" Ifteni, who is a middle distance runner, said as she searched the plate in front of her. "Where is that?"
She found it and gently sprinkled it into the pan along with curry powder, chili powder and a few other ingredients. She stirred the simmering dish and minutes later dinner was served.
Ifteni was one of two-dozen athletes taking part in the healthy cooking class Men's Nike Air Max 97 Shoes All Black UK , which is part of the Culture and Education Program (CEP) at the Nanjing Games
"You learn how to cook healthy meals and what is good to eat," the 17-year-old girl said. "I had a lot of fun today."
The purpose of the cooking workshops is to not only teach athletes how to prepare healthy meals, but to give them the practical skills so they can do it at home.
The program has been a huge success. There are two workshops daily and the athletes start lining up about an hour before to don their cooking aprons and chef hats.
Organisers have a seven-day menu, with themes including Chinese cooking, Thai cooking and a pasta-based Mediterranean style meal.
Before they start preparing their food, the aspiring chefs listen to what nutritionist Jenna Ballam of New Zealand has to say about healthy eating. She talks them through why they are making what they are making and why it is important as an athlete to follow a balanced diet Men's Nike Air Max 97 OG GS UK Blue Grey Shoes , not only for their growth but also the performance in their chosen sport.
"I am hoping that this is doing what it is supposed to be doing and giving them a bit more background and knowledge," Ballam said. "I think the good thing about that is it shows healthy, nutritious food does not have to taste bad.
"I like getting questions when they ask how should I eat to compete, what should I be having and what should I eat during my event. It is good to see they are interested and looking for more knowledge."
The athletes are getting lessons from one of the top chefs in the world. Shi won the gold medal in what is basically the Olympic cook-off for chefs in 2003. He now owns two restaurants in Sydney, Australia.
"I want to show them that healthy cooking is easy," he said. "There is so much fast food available and it is convenient. But it is much better to eat healthy."
One of the other participants in the vegetable curry workshop was Heather Moyse from Canada Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Metallic Gold UK , a two-time Olympic gold medallist who is at the Games as a role model.
"I think it is amazing they are being exposed to the different benefits of things," she said. "I think people are falsely afraid of carbs, they do not realize that carbs give you energy.
"The same thing is the word calories, which has had a real negative connotation over the years, but calories is just a scientific word for energy. I think that dispelling a bunch of myths over what you can eat and what is healthy and can improve your body is important."
As Ifteni finished her meal and headed out to begin final preparations for her races, she shared what she liked most from the healthy cooking workshop.
"I really liked the dessert Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Sliver Bullet UK ," she said of the combination of rice pudding and bananas.
BERLIN, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Following is an interview on French star winger Franck Ribery of FC Bayern Munich:
By Oliver Trust
Xinhua: Mr. Ribery, what about calling you a genius?
Ribery (laughing): "Feel free to do that, I don't know anyone who doesn't mind hearing words like those."
And are you a genius?
Ribery: "I wouldn't call myself a genius. For me, geniuses are people who cure heart diseases or other serious illness. And many others that work hard to manage their daily lives."
Xinhua: Well, football fans Nike Air Max 90 97 UK , especially Bayern fans, feel you are a genius when watching you on the pitch.
Ribery: "That is something that makes me happy. Perhaps you could call me a special player but as for a genius, I really don't feel like one ... "
Xinhua: but ...
Ribery: "I like this quick man-on-man game, and I love to do special things when the situation gets tricky and you only see a small chance of honing in on goal or going down the flanks."
Xinhua: That sounds pretty much like a genius.
Ribery: "I don't have a special game plan to fall back on, meaning, if there are two in front of me Nike Air Max 1 Master UK , I do this, if it is only one, I do this. It's something that's inside me and I don't have a series of moves from let's say one to ten. A lot of things are intuitive. And it's something that's strongly connected to my emotions about football. I need to be emotional with football, and I like to have fun and see the people have fun."
Xinhua: But the genius Franck Ribery ...
Ribery (laughing): "Genius again? Ok, I give up..."
Xinhua: Ok, let us try again and say Bayern needs players like you and Arjen Robben to win the Champions League?
Ribery: "That might be right Nike Air Max 270 UK , but every team needs 11 players and more. And the world's best teams have, what you call, special players. Many opponents look at our line-up and say, we only have a chance to win when we have a strong defense. To get to the top as a team, you have to deal with that. And ok, to be able to do so Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra UK , you need players with special skills."
Xinhua: So you agree, Bayern needs Robben and Ribery to be successful?
Ribery: "Yes, and a good goalkeeper, and a good defense, and a creative midfield and players that can score goals and a coach, whose heart is full of passion and his head full of ideas about tactics and different systems that are useful for your game.
