Countdown to Beijing 2022******

LISBON, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Portugal expects to have its best performance and its largest delegation ever at the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games, according to Pedro Farromba, member of the Portuguese Olympic Committee (COP) and President of the Federation of Winter Sports of Portugal.

"We have a long friendship with China, and these Games will be a milestone. It will be the biggest Winter Olympics of all time because we trust China's organizational capacity, logistics, infrastructure, and quality of facilities," he said in a joint interview with Chinese media.

According to Farromba, Portugal's preparations have been difficult due to pandemic-related restrictions, with many changes and cancelations to schedules.

"We have no idea of the exact number of athletes that we are going to take. It is very difficult to develop in our country a sport that is not linked to the sun, the beach, and football," he explained.

However, he highlighted that this will be the fifth consecutive edition of the Winter Olympic Games in which Portugal will participate.

"We have a learning path and we have already gained some experience, with financial support from the Portuguese government. We will do our best, even without waiting for medals, but we will fight and represent our country with dignity, developing winter sports in Portugal," said Farromba.

He added that Portugal would this month complete the construction of an ice rink to help develop sports that until now were developed outside the country or on wheel tracks.

Farromba added that he believed the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing will be "very safe" despite fears of COVID-19.

"We have had conversations with the Olympic organizing committee that give us great confidence in the event," he said, noting that he agreed with China's decision not to allow spectators from overseas to be present during the Games.

"In competitions, it is always important to have the support of the public. We had the expectation, when the Games were scheduled, to have the support of the Portuguese community in Macao. But we can't have the best scenario in this difficult time we live in," he recalled.

For the member of the COP, the Olympic Games means "hope", and the most important is the "appreciation of the Olympic ideals, fraternity, and healthy competition", he concluded in the interview. Enditem

Feature: Discipline drives American ski, snowboard athletes in Beijing 2022 quest******

by Peter Mertz。

COPPER MOUNTAIN, United States, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- It's just before dinner on Sunday night, and Copper Mountain's normally bustling Center Village is quiet, with not a soul in sight.。

That's because the 60-some Olympic caliber athletes who train here each day are already tucked away in their condos, preparing dinner, with an evening of instruction and videos ahead before going to bed.。

Copper, an iconic ski resort at 2,946 meters, located about 125 kilometers west of Denver, capital city of Colorado, is where the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams have been hunkered down since October, getting ready for the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games, now just two months away.。

And for Team USA, it's all business.。

"They are definitely out training hard, I see them out running and doing exercises every morning because I live on the mountain," said Hannah McGerty, the hostess at 10 Mile Tavern.。

Even their daily lunch, held at the popular Center Village venue 10 Mile Tavern, is a subdued event, where athletes and coaches huddle around tables eating grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, and chicken tenders, to discuss strategy.。

"It's pretty standard, they come in, they eat their food, and then they go back to athletics," McGerty told Xinhua Tuesday.。

Other local Copper Mountain residents note a heightened sense of professionalism and urgency about this year's American squad, led by a number of Olympic veterans who take training extremely seriously.。

"One coach set up cones right outside the door of the restaurant," McGerty pointed outside the tavern.。

"I looked outside and the skiers were running between them and doing taps...I'm not even sure what that is," McGerty said with a smile.。


Mikaela Shiffrin knows about taps.。

In 2011, Shiffrin was only 15 when she made her World Cup debut, and at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, became the youngest slalom champion in Olympic Alpine skiing history, at the age of 18.。

Today, Shiffrin, born and raised in Vail, Colorado, 35 kilometers west of Copper, is the top skier of the American squad for the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games, and the biggest name in women's Alpine skiing since Lindsey Vonn.。

Taps, a high-speed reaction drill, similar to what professional football players do, is one of dozens of exercises the Colorado native does daily in a training routine that has drawn attention from all quarters.。

"The daily routine for Mikaela Shiffrin is to wake up between 4-5 am for warm-ups, or in her case, recently, physical therapy for 45 minutes prior to training, then on hill training starts with free ski, then into gates, then in a double session, slalom second session, then go home and have lunch," said Megan Harrod, U.S. Alpine Ski Team Communications Manager.。

All of this activity happens before lunch. The afternoon features "strength conditioning, activation, core development, watching videos, going to bed...getting up and doing it again," Harrod said.。

Harrod added that "this is the mentality that these athletes carry throughout the Olympic cycle, specifically the Alpine group."

In an article last year, Sports Illustrated (SI) also nailed the secret to her success: sleep.。

"Sleeping is my meditation," Shiffrin was quoted as saying in that article. "It's the only time you can recover, physically and emotionally, at the same time."

With a World Cup schedule that features some 80 events a year and took her to Finland just two weeks ago, Shiffrin needs all the sleep she can snag.。

On Monday, Shiffrin got back to Copper after another epic World Cup weekend, this time from 3,200 kilometers away at Vermont's Killington resort, where the 26-year-old won for the fifth straight time and notched her 46th slalom victory, which tied legendary Swede Ingemar Stenmark's record for most career World Cup wins in a single Alpine skiing discipline.。

"She's just amazing...unstoppable," Harrod added. Enditem。

Russia blasts US for ratcheting up Ukraine tensions with troop alert******


Members of the Ukrainian armed forces deployed on the border.

Moscow on Tuesday accused the United States of ratcheting up tensions over Ukraine after Washington put several thousand troops on alert for possible deployment to boost NATO.

The West is accusing Russia, which has massed 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border, of preparing a potential invasion of its pro-Western neighbor.

The troop build-up has sparked the biggest crisis in East-West ties since the Cold War, with US President Joe Biden holding a long call with European leaders on Monday.

Biden said there was "total unanimity" on how to deal with Russia, as the Pentagon announced that 8,500 US troops were being put on standby and NATO said it was sending ships and jets to bolster eastern Europe's defenses.

In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said these actions were only adding to an already tense atmosphere.

"The United States is escalating tensions," he told reporters. "We are watching these US actions with great concern."

Russia denies it has any plans to invade Ukraine, where Russia already seized the peninsula of Crimea in 2014.

Moscow has instead accused the West of increasing tensions with deployments and support for Ukraine, a former Soviet republic.

It has put forward a list of security demands, including for a guarantee that Ukraine never be allowed to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and that alliance forces pull back in Eastern European countries that joined after the Cold War.

The US and NATO have rejected the demands and told Russia to withdraw from Ukraine's borders, warning that an attack will trigger damaging economic sanctions, as well as a beefed-up NATO presence in eastern Europe.

A series of talks in various European cities this month have failed to ease tensions, though US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov agreed at a meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, last Friday to keep talking.

The US has promised to provide written answers to Moscow's demands this week, but has rejected calls for a ban on possible NATO expansion as a non-starter.

The crisis has laid bare divisions in the West, with some European Union members appearing less willing to take severe action against Russia, which supplies about 40 percent of the bloc's natural gas supplies.

The new government in EU economic powerhouse Germany in particular has faced criticism from Kyiv over its refusal to send defensive weapons to Ukraine, as well as hesitating over one of the harshest economic sanctions under discussion – cutting Moscow from the global SWIFT payments system.

Biden held a one-hour-and-20-minute video conference with allied leaders from Europe and NATO on Monday, telling reporters afterwards: "I had a very, very, very good meeting – total unanimity with all the European leaders."

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office also said there was unity "in the face of growing Russian hostility," while German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called for Russia "to undertake visible de-escalation."

There were hopes for some easing of tensions after the French government announced that Russian and Ukrainian officials would meet, along with French and German counterparts, in Paris today to try to find a way out of the impasse.

French President Emmanuel Macron "thinks there is a space for diplomacy, a path to de-escalation," an aide said.

Both the aide and Kremlin spokesman Peskov said Macron would speak to Putin soon.

In Kyiv, the families of US, British and Australian diplomats had been ordered to leave, though the EU and Ukrainian government said that any withdrawal of foreign embassy personnel was premature.

The Kremlin has accused NATO countries of "hysteria" over the crisis.

It also claimed this week that Ukrainian troops in the east of the country could launch an offensive, prompting President Volodymyr Zelensky's office to insist that Ukraine will not "succumb to provocations."

The US has stepped up security assistance to Ukraine, with Blinken on a visit to Kyiv last week confirming another US$200 million in aid.

A shipment arrived last Saturday and another batch was due later on Tuesday which the US embassy in Kyiv said would include "equipment and munitions to bolster the defensive capacity of the Ukrainian armed forces."
