ELDORET air jordan 12 dark grey for sale , Kenya, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Kenya athletics officials are pouring cold water on the country's blooming sprint talents, saying they are still miles away to reach the dominance of Jamaica and USA.

Athletics Kenya (AK) President Isaiah Kiplagat said more cash, technical support and equipment are required to boost the sprint athletes if they are to maintain and take their challenge to the door steps of their giant rivals Jamaica and USA.

"It takes a lot of resources and time to bring up a single sprint or field event athlete. What we have seen in Beijing World Championships is just tip of the iceberg in terms of talent blooming. But it requires more money and perseverance to help one athlete reach the international stage," Kiplagat said on Tuesday in Eldoret.

In Beijing World Championships, Nicholas Bett and Julius Yego wrote history to become the first Kenyan athletes to win gold in 400m hurdles and javelin respectively.

While Yego' s rise has been steady and gradual jordan 12 dark grey 2017 for sale , the emergence of Bett to conquer the 400m hurdles has prompted a rummage through the history of what has gone in the bringing up of the athlete including his training camp in Finland and South Africa.

"Their success is more of individual effort, and they hold the small percentage of athletes who are coming through the ranks keen to go wide off the traditional races associated with Kenya," Kiplagat said.

"We have so many of them who are yet to be tapped and if we get equipment and tartan in more towns, they will be more churned off the production line," he added.

Kiplagat said Kenya can dominate at the Rio Olympics only if the government helps them train sprinters and field event athletes by organizing exchange programmers with other countries who wish to exploit middle and long distance races.

Meanwhile, AK wants the government to speed up the setting up of a local testing center for anti-doping to cut down on the cost of sending the same to Johannesburg jordan 12 retro dark grey for sale , where there is the only certified World Anti-Doping Agency Laboratory.

Kiplagat wants the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) be strengthened with the assistance of South Africa, China and Norway to build capacity to answer to the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

In Beijing, two Kenyans sprinters - 400m hurdler Francisca Koki and Joyce Zakary (400m) - failed doping tests.

WELLINGTON, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Liu Jianhua, one of China's best known contemporary artists, is preparing his first New Zealand exhibition at Dowse Art Museum of Lower Hutt in the kiwi- Capital city Wellington this week.

The exhibition Transfer will open on Feb. 20 jordan 12 dark grey suede for sale , with a talk among the artist and local Chinese scholars.

Liu Jianhua told Xinhua this Wednesday that the installations he brought to New Zealand would tell New Zealanders what is Chinese artist's thinking in a changing world.

Hanging white porcelain-- made daily life stuff on the wall, Liu Jianhua and his colleagues carefully place his famous project Regular Fragile in an exhibition hall. The project was shown at both the 50th Venice Biennale, Chinese Pavilion and the exhibition entitled "Alors, La Chine?" at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

"I used fragile porcelain to make the daily stuff like bags, hammer and bottles, etc. When you remove the color jordan 12 dark grey for sale , they seems both familiar and strange," Liu Jianhua told Xinhua reporter, "it is a metaphor that our dreams and ideals are fragile too."

More than two years ago, Emma Bugden saw Regular Fragile in Liu Jianhua's studio for the first time.

"It is beautiful, absolutely stunning," the senior curator of Dowse Art Museum said. It is at that time that Bugden decide to bring this master piece back to New Zealanders.

"We Shop Men's Air Jordan Jumpman Pro Mid Black Cat All Black Online Sale , New Zealanders, want to understand about China. I strongly think art is a way beyond languages. Art is a language which is much more universal," Bugden said to Xinhua at the exhibition hall Wednesday.

"He (Liu Jianhua) is coming from a huge tradition of porcelain craft art making in China, which is thousands--years old; then he is bringing a really contemporary fine art. So his works speak to the history of old China, and also the huge changes occurred in China now. So for me he is really the perfect artist to bring to New Zealand," he said.

Regular Fragile Buy Cheap Mens Air Jordan 11 Low IE Fire Red White Fire Red-Black 919712-101 Clearance , which consist of 1,500 items, is not the only installation that Liu Jianhua brought to Aotearoa. Square, which finished in 2014, is the other contemporary art that shipped from Shanghai to Lyttelton Harbor in South Island, and then to Wellington.

It is Square's first overseas exhibition. In this project Best Mens Air Jordan 6 UNC Black University Blue 384664-006 Outlet Restock , Liu Jianhua made water-drop like porcelain with golden color and placed them in black steel. As the artist explained, the fragile porcelain and hard steel together show the audiences a conflicting concept. By using an abstract expression, the installation is a way to show human thinking in the changing world.

As an international well-known artist, Liu Jianhua's work was exhibited in many countries. He said contemporary art is a significant way of culture exchanging with modernity.

"It is important to show glorious Chinese historical heritage to the world, but it is equally important to tell foreigners how is modern China like and how is Chinese contemporary art like," Liu Jianhua said.

The artist and his team have a tight schedule to put his two installations together before the exhibition start this Saturday. The exhibition will last till July 10 Mens Air Jordan 11 Chicago Gym Red Black White 378037-623 For Sale , 2016.
