It is even possible that your favorite game which you play every day may be conducted at the Olympics! If you love extra curricular activities and want to create your own name, you might be just a step away from the most prestigious awards.

The Olympic begins

In the year 1894, the Olympic movement was begun. Women were not allowed to compete in the sports until 1900. The aim of the Olympic movement was to educate people through sports practice in order to remove the ills of discrimination of any kind. Friendship, mutual understanding and a fair play were the key aim of the Olympics.

considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?

manchester has been & will always be great we just need to put more trust in the younger players. maybe some new additions to the team would help, but all in all i think it's been decent.
