    导出博客文章Jousting might be most associated with ancient knights of the Middle Ages, but a
    new campaign claims it should take its place as an Olympic sport alongside
    modern events such as weightlifting and tennis.The campaign by English Heritage
    aims to secure a place at the Olympics for one of the oldest equestrian sports
    in the world.The charity, which hosts jousting events at its castles in England
    in the summer, claims modern jousters need the same levels of fitness, skill and
    strength as many of the competitors heading to this summers games in Rio de
    Janeiro.The sport involves competitors with 44lb (20kg) of armour holding lances
    12ft (3.7m) long, racing towards each other on horseback at a gallop of up to
    30mph, and English Heritage says it shares similarities with Olympic sports from
    fencing to equestrian eventing.English Heritage, which insists the campaign is
    not a publicity stunt, accepts that any road to the Olympics for the event would
    be a long one. However, the organisation said the sport has international appeal
    with jousting tournaments held in countries from Belgium to New Zealand, as well
    as in England.A form of jousting is the official state sport of Maryland in the
    US, where a campaign is trying to get jousting established as a recognised
    equestrian sport.With the International Olympic Committee (IOC) aiming to
    encourage innovation in the programme, host city Tokyo has put forward five
    sports -- karate, skateboarding, sports climbing, surfing and baseball/softball
    -- for the 2020 gamesEnglish Heritages head of projects Lucy Hutchings said: We
    want to see jousting take its rightful place at the Olympics table.It is one of
    the oldest equestrian sports in the world, with its roots in Ancient Greece, and
    requires similar levels of athleticism and artistry as other official Olympic
    sports.Jousting is a wonderful dramatic spectacle, it is fantastic to watch
    knights in action against the backdrop of our castles, it would be even better
    to see it on the Olympics stage.English Heritages jousting expert Dominic Sewell
    added: Jousting is a sport that requires a huge amount of skill and involves a
    daily training regime.You have to be strong, not just physically but mentally,
    so you can sit fearlessly in your saddle, face your rival, and offer yourself as
    a target.And just like the Olympic British equestrian team, we ride beautiful
    horses to an exceptional level.

    Ibrahimovic has spoken about the possibility of a move to Major League Soccer,
    saying he could see himself conquering the United States. The 35-year-old moved
    to Old Trafford on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the
    summer and signed a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months. Sky

    Ibrahimovic won four Ligue 1 trophies with PSG, scoring 156 goals in 180
    appearances for the Parisians, and has also won league titles in Italy, Spain
    and the Netherlands. The Swede has been linked with a move to MLS in the past
    and such a suggestion clearly interests the striker. Its a huge option for me.
    For the football and everything else. I can see myself conquering the US as I
    have with Europe, he told daily newspaper Aftonbladet. Ibrahimovic celebrates
    after scoring for Man Utd against Swansea Lots of people stay in one place
    throughout their career, but Ive travelled around like Napoleon, and conquered
    every new country where Ive set foot.So perhaps I should do what Napoleon didnt
    and cross the Atlantic and conquer the States as well. Ibrahimovic also won La
    Liga during a season with Barcelona Ibrahimovic, who won the Swedish Golden Ball
    award for the 11th time on Monday, will be honoured with a statue outside the
    Friends Arena Stadium in Stockholm.Swedens all-time top goalscorer also insisted
    he has no regrets about swapping PSG for United despite a mixed start to life in
    England, with his new side nine points off the lead after just 12 games in the
    Premier League. Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal I had it good at PSG; its no
    secret.dddddddddddd We had a strong and good team that got better and better
    every year, he said. But thats passed now. This is a new chapter now and Im
    trying to create the same feeling here.The team I signed for this summer is not
    as strong as the one I left, but when Mourinho called the decision was easy.
    Ibrahimovic enjoyed four successful years with PSG When he calls I have no
    problem coming, all we had to decide was when I was to be presented as a Man Utd
    player. The rest, the financial deal, was not the difficult part. It was about
    the challenge really, and I will never say no to a challenge.This is what I
    wanted; coming to one of the worlds biggest clubs, that has had troubles and not
    won much of late, and try the Premier League. That is the challenge. Ibrahimovic
