For almost the entire weekend Scarpe Vans Old Skool Canvas Nere Bianche , the focus of Formula E's global launch in Beijing had been on everything other than the actual racing, but a dramatic crash ensured that racing grabbed the headlines after all.


A reckless defensive move by Nicolas Prost Scarpe Vans Perf Pelle Old Skool Zip Bianche , son of four-time Formula One world champion Alain, saw Nick Heidfeld's car catapulted into the air Scarpe Vans Pelle Old Skool Reissue DX Bianche , before coming to a stop upside down, after what should have been a textbook late pass by the German. Incredibly Scarpe Vans Old Skool The Statue of Liberty Bianche , Heidfeld walked away unaided, but both he and Prost were out.


The new racing format had got off to a mixed start Scarpe Vans Old Skool Pelle Zip Bianche , with issues stalling some cars on the grid, and a five-lap safety car period eating up a fifth of the race early on.


Those who had come out to Beijing's Olympic Park were treated to the curious sight - and sound - of race cars whirring round a street circuit Scarpe Vans Old Skool Scarpe Nere Gum , with the noise of the cars comfortably drowned out by the dance music that was played throughout.


Only time will tell how popular Formula E proves to be around the world, but a crowd dominated by foreigners suggests that this new series hasn't been an instant hit in the world's most populous country.


But what the drivers did show is that electric vehicles can move seriously fast. While these cars might lack some of the straight-line speed of F1 Scarpe Vans Old Skool Pop Foxing Nere Bianche , they are every bit as quick on the corners, and the organizers have struck gold by racing on inner-city street circuits in some of the most exciting places in the world Scarpe Vans Brite Old Skool Grigie Nere , rather than try to compete on the well-worn tracks of F1.


With municipal authorities in Beijing having invested a sizeable amount of money to host the opening round, the government will now hope that the excitement of the race can unlock something that has previously proved elusive - electric vehicle sales.






MEXICO CITY, July 20 (Xinhua) -- Holding an Olympic Games in Rome had a great symbolic importance since during ancient times the Romans conquered Greece and transformed the ancient Olympic Games into a grotesque circus. However, after thousands of years, the Romans wanted to show their ability to stage a memorable Olympics.


A total of seven cities asked to host the 1960 Games, including Lausanne (Switzerland), Budapest (Hungary), Brussels (Belgium), Mexico City, Tokyo (Japan) and Detroit (United States) but finally the mythical Italian capital was chosen by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).


Rome had previously been selected to host the Games in 1908 but Mount Vesuvius erupting caused the IOC to name London as the new host.


The Games were held from August 25 to Sept. 11.


The Italian's built new stadiums and renovated some sporting facilities which amply met the technical requirements and demands. Several places of historic interest from the ancient empire had been restored and were included among the sporting facilities.


The Basilica of Marentius and Constantine housed the wrestling competitions and the gymnastics were held in the Caracalla Baths while the Arch of Constantine was the finish line for the marathon.


Due to this, the over 600,000 visitors were left impressed by how well organized the event was and the how much passion the people of Rome had for the Games.


Television was the biggest contributing factor towards spreading the Olympic spirit. These Games were broadcast live in 18 European countries for the first time and with only a few hours delay, they were also shown in the United States, Canada and Japan.


The day before the Games of the XVII Olympiad were officially inaugurated, Pope John XXIII welcomed the 5,338 participating athletes during a special service to pray for the "high dignity of the athlete."


In total, the athletes came from 83 nations to participate in the Rome Olympics and over 1,500 journalists covered the international sporting event. Also, women's participation in the Olympics reached a historic figure at these Games with 611 women participating.


Like in the 1956 edition in Melbourne, athletes from East Germany and West Germany competed as the United Team of Germany under the Olympic Flag and used the notes from Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" as their national anthem.


Athletes from Morocco, San Marino, Sudan and Tunisia competed for the first time while athletes from Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago represented the new (British) West Indies Federation, competing as Antilles. However, this nation only existed for the 1960 Olympiad.


In this edition, athletes from the African countries performed excellently. Boxer Clement Quartey from Ghana became the African country's first ever medallist after winning the silver medal in the light welterweight category.


Five days later, Abebe Bikila, an Ethiopian bodyguard, won the marathon event barefoot as there were no shoes to fit him when he arrived in Rome. he became the first black African Olympic champion. Also in this competition, four African athletes were among the first ten athletes to finish.


Also in athletics, German athlete Armin Hary became the first athlete ever to run 100 meters in 10 seconds, winning him the gold medal and a World Record.


Hungarian fencer Aladar Gerevich won his sixth consecutive gold medal in the team sabre event while Swedish sprint canoeist Gert Fredriksson also won his sixth Olympic title.


Italy's Sante Gaiardoni became the only cyclist in Olympic history to win both the 1000 meters time trial and the 1000 meters sprint.


Cassius Marcellus Clay, 18, from the U.S. first gained international prominence by winning the light-heavyweight gold medal. Years later he changed his name to Muhammad Ali and embarked on a phenomenal career.
