The Switzerland-based Global Association of International Sports Federations earlier this month granted observer status to the International Federation of (Match) Poker, the International Pole Sports Federation and International Table Soccer Federation along with the organizing bodies for four other nontraditional sports the first step toward joining the Olympic program.
We warmly welcome our first Observers, Patrick Baumann, the president of GAISF, said in a statement. This is an exciting time for them and for us and we will do everything within our remit to help them realize their full potential as International Federations within the global sport’s family and, one day, maybe become part of the Olympic program.
Joining the program in Tokyo in two years will be softball, karate, surfing, skateboarding, sport climbing and baseball the games’ second shot at Olympic status. These sports were chosen, especially skateboarding and sport climbing, in part to reflect the changing interest in younger athletes and the worldwide popularity of these sports.
With the Packers’ franchise QB injured, an already volatile NFC playoff picture was jumbled even further. We put all 16 teams into one of four different categories, based on their chances of contention.
Fourth quarter: Giants 20, Broncos 10 The Broncos finally got in the end zone! Trevor Siemian zipped a pass to tight end Jeff Heuerman for a 13-yard score.
The Giants get the ball back, and that gives Orleans Darkwa a chance to go over 100 yards in the game. He currently has more yards than these four running backs gained against the Broncos, combined: Melvin Gordon (54), Ekeziel Elliott (8), LeSean McCoy (21), and Marshawn Lynch (12).
