How France battles to keep French alive at Olympics

How France battles to keep French alive at Olympics
The French language will remain a staple part of the Olympic Games, and it’s no easy task.

« Mesdames et messieurs – bienvenue à la cérémonie d’ouverture des Jeux Olympiques… »

Even if you don’t speak a word of French, you probably understand the above after coming across it (or something similar) at each Olympic Games opening ceremony.

French may no longer be considered a global international language or even the language of Europe after the rise and rise of English in recent decades, but it is still an official language of the Olympics – a legacy of the Frenchman who founded the games Pierre de Coubertin.

And French authorities are determined to make sure their language remains one of the official languages of the Olympic Games.

The organization, which boasts 57 member countries, has sent a delegate, known as the Grand Temoin (Great witness) to each Olympics since 2004 to monitor that the French language is actually being used for the athletes and spectators, a move introduced after French started to become less popular as the use of English soared.

At this year’s games in Rio, the job has gone to jazz saxophonist Manu Dibango of Cameroon, who is there to perform but also to oversee that amount of French on hand.

‘It’s a struggle each time’

He told the New York Times that he saw the job as « being the flag-bearer of the 300 million people around the world who speak French ».
Dibango is expected to closely monitor the level of French used on signage and announcements and produce a report afterwards. Early signs look good too, with the announcements for the opening ceremony made in English, Brazil’s national language Portuguese, and French.

Previous reports from other summer and winter games, however, have included complaints that some announcements weren’t in French, or that new sports came without sufficient French terminology.

Michaëlle Jean, the secretary general of the International organization of Francophonie, told the paper that the job of keeping the Olympics in French was « a struggle each time ».

« We must be there to make sure the French signs and documents and information are there. We have 3,000 athletes and a lot of people in the public from Francophone countries, » she said.

So should everything be in French?

Well, quite simply, yes (according to the rules, at least). The Olympic charter specifically states that the games have two official languages, English and French.

This rule is a result of the fact that the modern games were invented by a Frenchman, Pierre de Coubertin, but are no doubt in place as well considering the huge population of the world that speaks French.

If we forget the rules, however, one can only wonder if having everything in three languages is really necessary.

After all, there are more people in the world who speak Spanish (not to mention Mandarin, Hindi, and Arabic) than French – so surely they should get a look in somehow?

And as for the live broadcasts, many countries will have their own native-speaking correspondents on the microphone anyway, talking over the often lengthy announcements in French, English, and Portuguese.

So does French really still have a place at the Olympic Games? The jury is out on this one.

Vive la France, le français et l francophonie !!!!

Two more Champions League contests, and still plenty to play for. The top club competiton in Europe continued on Wednesday with the Round of 16, as Manchester City played Dynamo Kiev and PSV hosted Atletico Madrid. Here’s everything you need to know.

FINAL SCORES

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 24, 2016

Champions League Round of 16 Leg 1  PSV 0-0 Atletico Madrid
Champions League Round of 16 Leg 1  Dynamo Kiev 1-3 Manchester City 

1. City is sitting pretty

Manchester City can taste its first Champions League quarterfinal appearance. After a convincing 3-1 win at Dynamo Kiev, the team has more than a foot in the next round. It’s worth noting that Kiev has not played an official match since Dec. 9, so it’s not like this City squad faced a dominant force of the likes of Barcelona. But an away Champions League is always important, regardless of the opponent. Sergio Aguero’s opener set the tone, while Yaya Toure’s 90th minute strike gave the team some breathing room heading into the home leg. This team has what it takes to continue on in this tournament, despite a poor couple of weeks in England. With a two-goal advantage, it should be easy going in the second leg.

2. Atletico has the advantage

A 0-0 draw between Atletico Madrid and PSV means there is all to play for at the Vicente Calderon in the second leg. PSV held on with 10 men for much of the second half, and it won’t look at it as a bad result. A 1-1 draw at Atletico would see PSV advance on away goals. If Benfica could go in and beat Atletico in the Spanish capital, why can’t the Dutch side? Still, there is no doubt that Diego Simeone’s team has the advantage in the second leg. But you never know what could happen. A penalty kick, a big error, something could turn the tide. Nobody thought Celta Vigo would knock Atleti out of the Copa del Rey. There’s hope for PSV.

3. Return legs

The return legs for these matches will be on Tuesday, March 15 at 20:45 (8:45 pm Western Europe Time) ; 3:45 p.m. ET.

Champions League 2016: Results, Top Scorers After Wednesday’s Round of 16 Games


Champions League 2016: Results, Top Scorers After Wednesday's Round of 16 GamesEfrem Lukatsky/Associated Press

Manchester City took a commanding lead over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League round of 16 as they dispatched the Ukrainian side 3-1 at the NSC Olimpiyskiy on Wednesday.

Sergio Aguero and David Silva put the Citizens ahead at half-time, before Vitaliy Buyalsky pulled one back for the hosts in the second half. Yaya Toure secured the win late on with a sublime effort from distance.

Atletico Madrid and PSV Eindhoven played out a 0-0 draw in the Netherlands, with Los Rojiblancos failing to get on the scoresheet despite the Dutch side playing the last quarter of the game with 10 men as Gaston Pereira saw red for two bookings—though Diego Godin did have a goal disallowed.

Here is the Champions League top scorer’s list after Wednesday’s games :

Champions League Top Scorers :

1-  Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid 12 goals
2-  Robert Lewandowski Bayern Munich 7 goals
3-  Artem Dzyuba Zenit 6 goals
Thomas Muller Bayern Munich 6
5 Javier Hernandez Bayer Leverkusen 5 goals
Lionel Messi Barcelona 5
Luis Suarez Barcelona 5
Olivier Giroud Arsenal 5
Willian Chelsea 5
10-  Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid 4 goals
11-  Sergio Aguero Man City 2 goals
David Silva Man City 2
Vitaliy Buyalsky Dynamo Kiev 2
14- Yaya Toure Man City 1 goals

BBC Sport

City enjoyed the perfect start in Ukraine when Aguero pounced on Yaya Toure’s knockdown, per BT Sport Football:

Squawka Football and ESPN writer Miguel Delaney highlighted the Argentinian’s impressive form:

Buoyed by their early goal, the Sky Blues continued their positive approach to the game and showed intent to double their tally as they pressed, pushed forward and passed with real purpose, and Aguero flashed an effort narrowly wide.

The visitors scored their second shortly before half-time through Silva, who finished off an outstanding team move. Aguero found Raheem Sterling with a lovely backheel, and the England international coolly slid an exquisite ball to Silva, who made no mistake at the far post.

Kiev improved after the break and were rewarded for their pressure with a goal, albeit in fortunate circumstances as Buyalsky’s powerful long-range effort deflected off Nicolas Otamendi and past the helpless Joe Hart.

The hosts struggled to find an equaliser, though, and City enjoyed a strong finish to the game as they attacked with renewed vigour.

Toure was guilty of missing a gilt-edged chance to score when he headed wide from six yards, buy the Ivorian made amends several minutes later when he curled in a sumptuous effort from outside the area, per BT Sport Football:

Atletico spurned two good chances as they edged an open first-half contest with PSV.

Luciano Vietto latched onto a ball over the top inside three minutes and successfully dinked the ball over Jeroen Zoet, only to see his effort cleared off the line by Jeffrey Bruma.

Antoine Griezmann had a similar chance later on in the half as he was sent clear by a lovely through ball, but Zoet was alert to the Frenchman—who attempted a similar finish to Vietto—and denied him with a good save.

Davy Propper fashioned PSV’s best chance of the game as he worked his way into Atleti’s area, but the midfielder could only direct his effort straight at Jan Oblak while Los Rojiblancos defence converged rapidly to block Jurgen Locadia and Jetro Willems’ efforts.

Godin thought he’d given the visitors the lead on 61 minutes when he nodded Koke’s corner into the net, but the defender was penalised for climbing on Hector Moreno.

Pereiro earned his marching orders shortly after for a careless second yellow—not helped by Godin’s theatrical reaction. Despite their man advantage, Los Rojiblancos struggled to create clear-cut chances in the closing period of the game with PSV defending well.

As football writer Jack Benson noted, Griezmann is now enduring a lengthy run without scoring:

What will further be a concern is Atletico’s overall form in front of goal in the Champions League, with football journalist Dermot Corrigan providing the worrying stat:

However, PSV might also struggle to break down their opponents in the return leg, as BT Sport Football revealed:

With three away goals, Man City will expect to progress when they welcome Dynamo to the Etihad Stadium in the second leg.

As for Atletico, their failure to do so could prove costly, but PSV will need to produce something special to get an away goal of their own.

Ligue des champions : Manchester City a un pied en quarts de finale


Sortis par le FC Barcelone à ce stade de la compétition lors des deux précédentes éditions, les Anglais ont profité d’un tirage au sort plus clément, face au Dynamo Kiev. 

Sortis par le FC Barcelone à ce stade de la compétition lors des deux précédentes éditions, les Citizens ont profité d’un tirage au sort plus clément, même s’ils n’ont pas toujours eu la rencontre en mains.

Malgré les nombreuses absences (De Bruyne, Nasri, Jesus Navas, Mangala) et une série de trois défaites avant ce match (dont une élimination 5-1 à Chelsea en Coupe d’Angleterre), les Anglais n’ont pas douté en première période, portés par un Sergio Agüero incontournable aux avant-postes.

Les Anglais ont ouvert le score sur leur première occasion dangereuse. Sur un corner de David Silva repris de la tête par Yaya Touré, Agüero contrôlait de la poitrine au point de penalty pour pousser le ballon au fond des filets (15e).

Le match, dont les premières minutes étaient dominées par les Ukrainiens, changeait alors de physionomie, tournant nettement à l’avantage des hommes de Manuel Pellegrini. Agüero passait même tout près du doublé sur une frappe un peu trop croisée au second poteau (21e).

Silva, lui, ne ratait pas sa chance à la conclusion d’une longue ouverture de Gaël Clichy, reprise dans la surface par Agüero, toujours lui, relayé par Raheem Sterling, et plaçait le ballon dans la lucarne opposée (40e).

Mais le Dynamo, en pleine trêve hivernale et dont la dernière sortie officielle remontait au 9 décembre 2015, revenait mieux des vestiaires. Vitaliy Buyalskiy reprenait une relance malheureuse de la tête de Nicolas Otamendi, très bon jusque-là, et réduisait le score d’une frappe déviée par le même Otamendi (59e).

Le match basculait alors dans l’incertitude, les locaux comme les visiteurs passant à plusieurs reprises tout près de marquer. Mais le mot de la fin revenait à Touré dans les toutes dernières minutes (90e), effaçant une tentative infructueuse de la tête dix minutes plus tôt.

Ligue des champions : grand et petit pas vers les quarts pour le Barça et le Bayern


Lionel Messi a marqué deux fois mardi à Arsenal.

Barcelone a décroché un très précieux succès à Londres contre Arsenal (0-2) se plaçant idéalement pour la qualification, tandis que le Bayern, qui menait pourtant 0-2, a concédé le nul (2-2) à Turin en huitièmes de finale aller de laLigue des champions, mardi. Les Allemands ont toutefois fait un pas important vers les quarts de finale.

Les deux grosses affiches à ce stade de la compétition reine du football européen ont pleinement tenu toutes leurs promesses, avec une prime pour les favoris catalans et bavarois. A l’Emirates Stadium, les tenants du titre ont souffert plus que prévu contre une équipe d’Arsenal bien en place et dangereuse en attaque.

L’inévitable MessiMais c’est l’inévitable Messi qui a ouvert le score au bout d’un contre rondement mené par le trio offensif Messi-Suarez-Neymar, le Brésilien prenant appui sur l’Uruguayen avant de servir l’Argentin, dont le contrôle a éliminé le portier tchèque d’Arsenal Petr Cech (0-1, 71e).Cette ouverture du score a cassé les jambes des Gunners, qui vont amèrement regretter leur manque de réalisme, notamment Olivier Giroud de la tête, tout près de tromper l’Allemand Marc-André ter Stegen (59e).

Sur une faute de Mathieu Flamini, Messi a obtenu un penalty à la 82e, qu’il s’est empressé detransformer (0-2), donnant un avantage considérable avant le match retour, le 16 mars au Camp Nou. Les hommes d’Arsène Wenger devront marquer au moins à deux reprises pour espérer alors que les Barcelonais ont enchaîné un trente-troisième match sans défaite mardi soir à Londres.

 

Paulo Dybala face à l'Allemand Thomas Müller, mardi à Turin. 

A Turin, en revanche, les finalistes de l’épreuve l’an passé (battus par le Real Madrid) ont réussi à retourner une situation mal engagée. Les Turinois ont encaissé le premier but au plus mauvais moment, à quelques secondes de la pause : sur un débordement côté droit d’Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa a remis la balle de volée dans la surface. La mauvaise relance d’Andrea Barzagli a atterri dans les pieds de Thomas Müller à une dizaine de mètres du but délaissé par Buffon. L’avant-centre allemand a encore une fois fait parler son sens du but, pour sa sixième réalisation en Ligue des champions cette saison.

Cette ouverture du score est venue récompenser la nette domination des Munichois alors que Müller avait déjà raté l’immanquable à six mètres, sur une offrande de Robert Lewandowski, un peu plus tôt.

La spéciale de Roben, le retour de RibéryEt Robben y est allé de sa spéciale : idéalement servi par Lewandowski dans la surface, il a crocheté Barzagli et enroulé sa frappe du pied gauche, pour voir le ballon se loger dans le petit filet de Buffon, impuissant (55e). Mais la révélation turinoise de cette saison, Paulo Dybala, est venue donner un espoir aux supporteurs turinois (63e), avant que Stefano Sturaro, entré en jeu à la 69e minute, n’égalise pour la Juve (2-2, 76e).

Avec quelques occasions dans les dix dernières minutes – marqué par le retour de Franck Ribéry en Ligue des champions –, les Bianconeri auraient même pu réaliser la bonne opération. Au match retour, les Turinois seront obligés de marquer au moins un but à l’Allianz Arena dans trois semaines, pour éventuellement revoir les quarts de finales. L’espoir de qualification est maigre.
