Spain World Champion, Paul Octopus 8 wins, Jimmy Jump Again

>> July 12, 2010

For the first time national team of Spain became the champion of the world after a 1-0 triumph over Netherlands at the FIFA World Cup final match at Johannesburg SA yesterday.

Spain’s winning goal scored by Andres Iniesta at the final 5 minutes in the second half of the extra time in front 89,000 spectators at Soccer City. Consequently, the Dutch joins their 1974 and 1978 team's feat as the World Cup bridesmaids.

In contrast, the wait was finally over for Spain after years of underachieving on soccer's biggest stage. Spain finally joins the World Cup winners alongside Brazil (5), Italy (4) , West Germany (3), Uruguay (2), Argentina (2), England (1) and France (1).

Spain also becomes the first nation since West Germany in 1974 to hold both the European championship and World Cup title simultaneously.

Meanwhile, referee Howard Webb issued 14 yellow cards, including one resulting in a red card for defender John Heitinga that brought Netherlands down to 10 men during second half of extra time.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter handed over the World Cup trophy to Spain’s captain and goalkeeper Iker Casillas.

Winning goal's video:


The Octopus

The Octopus known as Paul has made waves in the world’s business for a month. He made six selections over matches involving Germany before the Sunday’s final match. And on Sunday he has successfully predicted the champion of the world! Spain defeated Netherlands. Earlier, he precisely selected Germany as the third place winner over Uruguay.

Paul first developed his abilities during the 2008 European Championship in which he predicted five out of six games involving Germany correctly.

As a result, Paul was suggested to be sent to Iraq to choose between two bitter rivals - Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his main challenger, Ayad Allawi - vying to head the new government.

Jimmy Jump

Spanish prankster/joker "Jimmy Jump" who has a history of hijacking events tried to grab the World Cup trophy moments before players were due to walk out at Soccer City for the Final.

He ran in from a corner of the stadium and raced across the field toward the halfway line, where the trophy had been placed on a table. However, he was tackled by a FIFA officer just before he could get to the trophy and was carried away by security guards.

Here is the video:

France's Christophe Lemaitre Ran 9.98s, First White Man to Break 10s Barrier

>> July 11, 2010

France's Christophe Lemaitre became the first white man to break 10s barrier in the 100m, clocking 9.98 (+1.3) en route to win the French national championship on July 09, 2010

Lemaitre's time just eclipsed the France national record 9.99, held by Ronald Pognon since 2005. He also takes over the crown of "the fastest white man ever" from Japan's Koji Ito (10.00 +1.9 1998) and Poland's Marion Woronin (10.00 +2.0 1984).

It has been a long wait for white men (40 years !) since the first human first run under 10s. That was Jim Hines, an African descent of the USA at the U.S National Championship in June 1968 with a hand timed 9.9s. Hines then became the first man to run an electronically timed 100m under 10s at the 1968 Olympic with a time of 9.95.

But remember, Bullet Bob Hayes, also an African descent was the first to run under 10s in any conditions. He set 9.91s during the 100m SF at the 1964 Olympics on a cinder track!

As of now, a total of 70 black guys (West African descent and some mix blooded) have dipped below 10s. Lemaitre is the 71st person to break the 10s barrier and he will be remembered to have done so. In sprinting, apart from the hard works and the disciplines, the genetics and muscles fiber types have the great role to determine the success.
