LAUSANNE, Switzerland - IOC President Thomas Bach hailed a United Nations resolution on sports and politics Monday as a historic Antworten

LAUSANNE, Switzerland - IOC President Thomas Bach hailed a United Nations resolution on sports and politics Monday as a historic milestone that rejects the idea of political boycotts of the Olympics. Golden State Warriors Jerseys .Bach welcomed the resolution adopted by consensus by the U.N. General Assembly that supports the independence and autonomy of sport as well as the mission of the IOC in leading the Olympic Movement.The resolution states that major international sports events should be organized in the spirit of peace, mutual understanding, friendship, tolerance and inadmissibility of discrimination of any kind and that the unifying and conciliative nature of such events should be respected.The IOC said the wording clearly implies that full participation at sports events is encouraged and boycotts are incompatible with this U.N. request for respect of the values of sport.The United States led a boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the Soviets retaliated by boycotting the 1984 Los Angeles Games.Some politicians and activists called for a boycott of Februarys Winter Games in Sochi over a Russian law that outlawed so-called gay propaganda.We highly welcome this resolution as a historic milestone in the relations between sport and politics, Bach said in a statement. We must form partnerships with political organizations based on this recognition of the autonomy of sport.The U.N. also recognized the Olympic Charter and Principle 6, the clause on non-discrimination.As a sports organization, the IOC does not, however, have a mandate to impose measures on sovereign states outside its own fields, the IOC said. The Olympic Games can show the world and the host country that a peaceful society is possible.The IOC has enjoyed U.N. observer status since 2009. Bach spoke to the General Assembly in New York in November 2013.Bach sent a letter to all 205 national Olympic committees urging them to work with their national political leaders to strengthen the autonomy of their sports bodies. In recent years, the IOC has suspended several national committees because of political interference.This relationship with governments requires that sport always remains politically neutral, Bach said.

A wide-eyed 18-year-old visiting North America for only the second time in his young life, Caboclo immediately noticed the "big tower" his new home is best known for. . PAUL, Minn.AUCKLAND, New Zealand - Venus Williams turned back the clock with a vintage performance to beat Caroline Wozniacki 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 in Saturdays final of the ASB Classic, displaying her advanced preparation for the upcoming Australian Open.Wozniacki swept through the first set in 30 minutes on the back of a series of unforced errors by Williams and she seemed headed for her 23rd career title when she broke in the opening game of the second set.But Williams turned the momentum from the middle of the set, breaking back and then going on the offensive with a more accurate serve and with powerful forehand groundstrokes.Wozniacki continued to fight but Williams assumed the upper hand, breaking Wozniacki early in the third set, then clinching the match with a further service break after her opponent had saved two match points.Williams was playing in her first tournament since September and won a WTA title for the first time since Dubai last February, improving her head-to-head record against Wozniacki to 6-1. She reached the final in Auckland last year, losing in three sets for former No. 1 AAna Ivanovic. Draymond Green Jersey. .Caroline and I were training next to each other in Florida recently and I saw how hard she works, Williams said. Shed do half an hour of fitness work before she even started training and I thought I should be doing that...but I didnt. I knew it would be a tough match.She played great and I know shes going to have an amazing two weeks (at the Australian Open).Williams had swept through into the final without dropping a set, beating Jana Cepelova 6-1, 6-0, Kurumi Nara 6-4, 6-1, Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-4 and compatriot Lauren Davis 6-0, 6-4.Wozniacki, in comparison, struggled at times to assert her authority over lower-ranked opponents, making unforced errors which left her often having to fight her way back into games.Ive played a lot of tennis here this week and done a lot of running and a lot of returning and that will be good for me in the Australian Open, Wozniacki said.In the doubles final, Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci of Italy, the worlds top-ranked combination, beat Shuko Aoyama of Japan and Renata Voracova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-1.
