Grin (25771),

I went out yesterday to a fantastic pub with my running mates — posted some pics in Sybil's Good morning thread — they hired the whole of the upstairs. Upstairs is like a playroom for adults — crazy golf, football, remote control cars, etc. — it was great. We were celebrating last week's charity run — we raised a lot of money for one of the Children's charities — in tens of thousands.

Professional sport is like business. If one can ruin reputation of a rilal he will do it (or will try to do it).
As an example, Ksenia Stolbova




Some people started to spread bad rumors about her just before the Olympics. And some bloggers lied about her that she was under investigation during Sochi scandal. She never was under inverstigation. Actually, no figure skater was ever caught on doping in the history of figure skating, many people think it is useless in figure skating because any changes in your body can affect your balance and you can lose your ability to land jumps.
So in the end she didn't get invintation to 2018 olympycs. She is a #2 Russian pair skater and her abcence weakened Russian team in figure skating team event.

There are some other examples. B*tching about «they starve their girls» is a part of it.

Well, they do starve them — what do they (the critics) expect) — for them to eat whatever they like and be like hippos? In any sport there is a diet, it is part of it. When one goes into a professional sport — there are sacrifices to be made. I suspect they are all on a high protein and vegetable and low carb (carbohydrates) diet — same as in ballet. It is just with Russians — they are a bit thinner — girls there — naturally as well. Well, to me it seems that way. If they were starving — I mean — proper starving — they couldn't perform properly — they just wouldn't have enough energy. Does that make sense?

P. S. By the way, in England we overuse the word «proper» — a lot. Sorry about that.

quoted1
Я думаю, что Трамп попытается перезаключить сделку по ядерной программе Ирана на иных условиях. Например, вывод иранский войск из Сирии.
Россия поддерживала Асада с воздуха, а Иран посылал туда своих солдат.
Вывод иранских войск из Сирии сейчас, когда боевые действия почти закончились, также выгоден России, так как в таком случае Россия останется единственным внешним игроком, способным оказывать сильное воздействие на Башара Асада.

Если это удастся, то Трамп сможет заявить, что он заключил сделку лучше, чем была сделка Обамы или что-то в этом духе.

It all started after Lipnitskaya said she had anorexia. Her jumping technique wasn't good, so after she left Eteri she tried to lose a lot of weigh and it ended badly. But people blame Eteri because she praised Lipnitskaya earlier for her willpower and her ability to lose weigh.
Since that time «they are straving» narrative is always in figure skating related forums/blogs etc.

I am having a great evening. I am eating a takeaway — a curry actually — a prawn dopiazza (it's an Indian dish I ordered), cause I can't be bothered to cook anything — kids are already in the Isle of Wight (me and my husband are joining them on Monday — yay!!!), my husband is on a business trip abroad. You have a great evening too.)

Anorexia — anyone can have it — sport or no sport. The attitudes in today's society (adds, etc.) put a lot of pressure on girls to be thin. Cause they all want to be like catwalk models. But what they don't get — is — to be a catwalk model one has to be very tall. For example, when I was a teen I wanted to get into it — I loved Kate Moss, etc. But didn't qualify (I won't name the agency, but it's a London agency) — cause to them I was not tall enough (and I am not exactly short).
Although Kate Moss is my height, after her — all the models became taller — Gisele Budhen is 180 cm for instance — it's crazy. Lily Cole — 179 cm, etc.
I guess there is a higher risk in ballet and sports for someone to become anorexic. But that is nothing to do with a coach or anything like that, it is to do with the fact that in sports like that one has to be on a strict diet.
At one point my daughter gained a bit of weight and her ballet teacher commented on it, she came home and burst into tears (she was also bullied at school at the time by a gang of jealous girls — we sorted that out later on) and I said — another comment like that and I am gonna take you to court. I don't want my kid to grow up with a complex. Let her gain weight, lose weight — whatever. That is why I don't want her to become a professional ballerina, don't need all the aggro (slang for «aggravation») that comes with it. Let her do performing arts — ballet is just part of it.

Hi, sorry for not replying for so long. I was so tired yesterday I fell asleep right after coming home.

Как и Россия. Трамп сам является популистом. И он открыто заявляет, что ЕС — это конкурент. И отношение к ЕС у него соответствующее.
Лично я бы предпочел, чтобы ЕС был экономическим союзом, а не супергосударством.

И наконец, европейские руководители неспособны выстроить долгосрочную стратегию по миграционной проблеме.

Автор статьи как бы намекает нам, что это очень плохо, что ЕС не смог стать сверхдержавой. Я не считаю, что это плохо.

It reminds me of US MPs. Some republicans act and vote like democrats when it comes to Trump's projects.

Thanks, that was interesting piece of information. Looks like you can watch them fighting instead of comedy shows. It could be fun but Brexit will affect your life, so you probably experiencing mixed feelings. Smth in the middle between — look this clowns coulndn't negotiate a piss in a pub and — ofmg, we all gonna die.

Just kidding)
