SOCHI Nike Just Do It UK , Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Zhang Hong's victory in the women's 1,000m speed skating on Thursday, which won China's first ever Olympic gold in the sport, will inspire the Chinese delegation at the Sochi Games, a top Chinese official said.


"It's a historical moment when Zhang ended China's Olympic gold drought in speed skating Nike Air Max 97 Womens UK , a blue-ribbon event in winter sports," said Xiao Tian, deputy chef de mission.


"It is the heaviest gold medal for the country and we have been waiting for this for 22 years."


The 25-year-old Zhang clocked one minute and 14.02 seconds for the country's second gold in Sochi, 0.67 seconds ahead of the Netherlands' triple-gold medalist Ireen Wust. Another Dutch woman Margot Boer got the bronze in 1:14.90.


It was the first time for China to win two golds on a winter Olympic day. Earlier, Li Jianrou triumphed in the women's 500m short track speed skating final.


China won its first Olympic speed skating medal in 1992 when Ye Qiaobo finished runner-up over both 1 Nike Air Max 97 Mens UK ,000m and 500m. But the gold had never come until the Sochi Games.


"For so many times, we had narrowly missed it," said Xiao. "Ye Qiaobo, Xue Ruihong, Wang Manli...All these skaters had done their part in the sport. The gold medal is a reward to our efforts.


"This means a lot to the future of Chinese speed skating and it will raise the confidence of the Chinese team."


As a short track skater for seven years Nike Air Max 97 Red UK , Zhang Hong switched to speed skating six years ago.


"I think credit should go to Feng Qingbo," said Xiao. "As Zhang Hong's coach, Feng is open-minded and resourceful and he has an edge in training and strategy-making. It's fair to say that, without Feng, Zhang could not be so successful."

ADEN Nike Air Max 97 Green UK , Yemen, March 25 (Xinhua) -- For Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, the embattled Yemen's president, the southern port city of Aden is perhaps his last refuge in the country as the Shiite Houthi fighters are quickly closing in on Hadi's provisional capital.


On Wednesday, warplanes bombed Hadi's residence in Aden Nike Air Max 97 Blue UK , and widespread rumors erupted that the president fled his interim palace, which were later proved to be false.


While it might be a fact that Mr. Hadi is still in his presidential compound safe and sound, residents in the city have been frightened, and were seen packing up to flee the flaring violence to neighboring Abyan province despite al-Qaida network's active presence there.


Intensified gunfire could be heard on the outskirts of Aden, which the president assigned as the temporary capital last week. Capital Sanaa has now been under control of the Houthi group for almost half a year.


In the port city Nike Air Max 97 Black UK , all foreign diplomatic missions were suspended. The Aden international airport was shut down because all of its staff have left for fears, but diplomats of the Gulf Arab nations have already flown out of the country.


A source inside the presidential palace said Hadi is still in Aden to command his forces to battle against the Houthi group.


He said Hadi is in "a safe and well-guarded place and he won't leave the country," declining to confirm whether or not Hadi is in the presidential palace.


"Aden is a peaceful city and we never used to live in such poor security situation and random shootings at midnight. There are no national troops, only strange-armed men patrolling the streets with medium and heavy weaponry," 30-year-old dentist Rasha Mana said.


She said that maintaining the city's stability and protecting public properties is the major responsibility of army and police Nike Air Max 97 Grey UK , not tribal militia, pointing out the authorities in Aden are taking "high-risk options."


However, this is probably not the worst situation in Aden, as pro-Hadi tribal militia may battle the Houthi fighters in their last stronghold in the country.


The Shiite Houthi fighters backed by security forces advanced in Yemen's south and took control over the strategic Anad air base in the southern province of Lahj early on Wednesday, a military official said.


Thousands of Houthi militias are advancing from the air base to Aden city that is just about 40 km away.


A senior Houthi member told Xinhua reporter that the group has arrested Defense Minister Major General Mahmoud al-Subaihi in Lahj province who has been commanding most of the pro-Hadi army to battle the Houthis.


When al-Subaihi was escorted to Sanaa Nike Air Max 97 OG UK , most of the army troops have surrendered to the Houthi group, leaving a small number of soldiers and tribal militia to defend Hadi in Aden.


The Arab League will discuss the crisis in Yemen at ministerial level on Thursday in a meeting in Egypt's Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh after Hadi called for military intervention to stop the Houthi fighters.


"Most people especially in Aden nowadays are aware of the importance of government authorities to rebuild the country and establish a civil state. No one believes in militia to save the nation," Rasha Mana said.


UN envoy Jamal Benomar brief the UN security council on Sunday that Yemen is on "rapid downward spiral" and current events "are leading the country away from political settlement and to the edge of civil war."


The impoverished country has mired in political gridlock since 2011 when mass protests forced former President Ali Abdullash Saleh to step down.


Nevertheless, three years of reconciliation talks have failed to mediate peace and stability. Instead, a huge power vacuum has been created Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold UK , and has already benefited the powerful extremist groups like al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.


Wael al-Kassimy, a 25-year-old engineer student at Aden University, said he fears that militants of the al-Qaida branch may expand their presence in Aden by "disguising or turning into militia."


"Tribal militia makes us both worried and confused because it's sometimes hard to tell the difference between these armed men and al-Qaida. They are just. Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Finland Hockey Jerseys
