TKD at the Olympics

There’s no place for this in any sport.

Cuba’s Angel Valodia Matos, left, kicks match referee Sweden’s Chakir Chelbat in the face … at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing… Matos attacked the official, throwing punches and kicks, after being declared the loser in his bronze medal match.

He, and his coach, have been rightly banned for life from all international competitions.

Much more fun is the “Kicked in the Face” gallery at NBCOlympics.com — pictures of scoring kicks to the head in the Tae Kwon Do Matches.

The Gamble Collection

11:09 am - Jason G. - Commentary

Just put online

From 1908 to 1932, Sidney Gamble (1890-1968) visited China four times, traveling throughout the country to collect data for social-economic surveys and to photograph urban and rural life, public events, architecture, religious statuary, and the countryside. A sociologist, renowned China scholar, and avid amateur photographer, Gamble used some of the pictures to illustrate his monographs.

Great photos…  Kudos to Duke Library for making them available to everyone.
