Canada versus Australia. Agência Brasil Fotografias

American swimmers Allison Schmitt and Michael Phelps are seen here in the restaurant of the Athletes Village. At the event’s peak, the venue will prepare 60,000 meals each day. Phelps’ diet has received headlines in the past, clocking in at 12,000 calories a day in 2008.

Leading up to the Olympic Games opening ceremonies on Friday, football competitions for the 2016 Summer Olympics began two days before in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Wednesday’s schedule included six women’s football match-ups, between Sweden and South Africa, Canada and Australia, Brazil and China, Zimbabwe and Germany, United States and New Zealand, France and Colombia. Canada’s forward Janine Beckie scored a goal just 20 seconds into the game, the quickest in Olympic history. The team beat Australia 2-0.

The men faced off Thursday with Iraq vs Denmark, Honduras vs Algeria, Brazil vs South Africa, Mexico vs Germany, Portugal vs Argentina, Sweden vs Colombia, Fiji vs South Korea, and Nigeria vs Japan.

When teams arrived at the Athletes Village, they were welcomed with 45-minute ceremonies. While members of the US swim team have been photographed in the Athletes Village restaurant, recent reports suggest that Team USA men’s basketball will be staying in a luxury cruise ship, docked off the Port of Rio. Canadian tennis player Daniel Nestor has suggested the village lacks hot water. Members of the Australian team had their three laptops stolen last week, during a building evacuation due to a nearby fire.

On Friday, Neymar Jr agreed to a five-year contract extension with FC Barcelona, Zlatan Ibrahimović to a one-year contract with Manchester United F.C. as a free agent, and Nolito joined Manchester City F.C. from Celta de Vigo for a four-year term.

End of speculations about Neymar’s future[]

Previously, Barcelona received offers for Neymar from Paris Saint Germain, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Real Madrid. But on Friday, Neymar agreed to sign a five-year contract extension with the blaugranes. Neymar has scored 85 goals in 141 appearances for Barça winning eight trophies. This year, he finished third in the FIFA Ballon d’Or.

Per the contract extension, Neymar’s buyout clause is €200million for the first season which would rise to €250million after the end of the second season. The formal presentation of the extension is to be two weeks later before Neymar leaves for his international duties for the Olympics 2016 in his homeland.

After the agreement, Neymar tweeted, “Very happy to continue living this dream!((pt)) Long Live Barcelona and long live Catalunya((ca))“.

Ibrahimović and Mourinho reunite[]

Zlatan’s contract with French club Paris Saint Germain expired in June and Zlatan indicated his next move to Manchester United tweeting, “Time to let the world know. My next destination is @ManUtd [Manchester United]”. Zlatan has made 180 appearances for Paris and scored 156 goals. He became the club’s top scorer and helped the club win two domestic titles in a row, scoring 38 goals in Ligue 1 last season.

Former Swedish captain Zlatan played under José Mourinho at Italian club FC Internazionale Milano‎ in the 2008–2009 season before Zlatan left for Pep Guardiola‘s FC Barcelona in exchange for Samuel Eto’o.

After completing his second signing of the season, Mourinho said, “Zlatan needs no introduction. The statistics speak for themselves.” Debuting in 1999, Zlatan has won domestic titles in four different nations and six different clubs winning the ‘Swedish Footballer of the Year’ nine consecutive times.

After agreeing to the terms Zlatan said, ” I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester United and am looking forward to playing in the Premier League. It goes without saying that I cannot wait to work with Jose Mourinho once again.”

Arsenal F.C. tried to persuade Zlatan when he was 17 years old, when manager Arsène Wenger asked him to do a trial with the club. He declined the offer; recalling the incident later, he explained, “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions.”

At international level, Zlatan is Sweden’s all-time top scorer with 62 goals in 116 games. He retired from the Swedish team last month after their Euro exit.

At Barcelona, Zlatan won five trophies in one season, but clashed with Guardiola. He is likely to face Guardiola’s Manchester City in their local derby.

Nolito to work with Guardiola for a longer period[]

Manchester City under Pep Guardiola‘s management signed Nolito from Spanish club Celta Vigo. At Celta Vigo, he scored 39 goals in 106 appearances.

Nolito joined FC Barcelona B in 2008 just when Guardiola vacated the manager spot of the reserve team. Three years later, Nolito was promoted to the first team and played five matches under Guardiola. With limited playing time with Barcelona, he moved to Portuguese club S.L. Benfica.

Scoring 16 goals in 63 matches for Benfica, he was transferred to the Celts after a short loan to Granada CF. In three seasons with Celta Vigo, Nolito gained a place in Spain’s international team. Playing four matches in UEFA Euro 2016, Nolito scored one goal against Turkey.

Nolito has been allotted the Number 9 jersey.

A masked man killed a teacher and an 11 year old student in a sword attack at a school in Trollhättan, Sweden yesterday, before police who arrived at the scene fatally shot him.

Trollhättan Municipality is located in western Sweden.

The teacher died on the scene, while the student was sent to a hospital before he died.

In addition, three others have been injured in the sword attacks. The injured, who are hovering “between life and death” according to Doctor Lars Spetz, have been sent to the Norra Älvsborgs Länssjukhus hospital for treatment.

Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden

“It is a black day for Sweden,” Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden, who later visited the school, said in response to the attack.

Bo Johansson, head of the Swedish Teachers’ Union, expressed concern that schools are too open. Johansson said that schools should not be so open that “anyone can walk in,” even though “of course schools should be open to society.”

The school in question, Kronan, had a high immigrant population, The Guardian reported. Expo, a non-profit anti-racist organization which publishes the Expo magazine, said online that authorities are “investigating a possible political motive,” citing unspecified sources. Expo adds that the attacker may have held racist views, stating that he had shown “clear sympathies for extreme right-wing and anti-immigrant movements,” and that the attacker has “‘liked’ videos glorifying Nazi Germany” on the online video sharing site YouTube.

The man, dressed like the Star Wars character Darth Vader, posed for a photo with students, who believed that he was pulling an early Halloween prank, before he started attacking others with a sword. A student who attends the school said that fellow students “initially thought it was a joke.” The photo showed the man holding a sword and wearing a helmet.

Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed Raúl‘s goal scoring record for Spanish club Real Madrid in a La Liga match against Levante UD on Saturday. Ronaldo netted his 324th goal in his 310th match for Los Blancos on Saturday, breaking the previous record set by Spanish footballer Raúl of 323 goals in 741 games.

He earlier equaled Raúl’s goal scoring record for Madrid in a UEFA Champions League match against Swedish football club Malmö FF when he scored a brace, crossing the landmark of 500 career goals and scored the record-breaking goal in the 30th minute from outside the penalty area in this match.

In Saturday’s match, Real Madrid had 58% ball possession against Levante. The match saw five yellow cards — four for the visitors and one for Real Madrid player Kovačić. A total of eighteen fouls were committed in the game. Ronaldo assisted Brazilian Marcelo in the 27th minute and Marcelo netted the goal in the left corner. Minutes later, Toni Kroos assisted Ronaldo, and he scored the record-breaking goal in the bottom right corner. The first half ended 2–0.

At the beginning of the second half, Vázquez was substituted for Gareth Bale. He assisted Jesé in the 81st minute and Jesé scored in the top corner providing a 3–0 win for Real Madrid.

Real is now top of the La Liga table.

Cquote1.svg What Ronaldo does you cannot name. It is on another historic level,[…]It is incredible what he has done in only six years, scoring an average of more than 50 goals a season, when it used to be hard for me to reach 20. I hope he keeps scoring many more goals for a long time and helps the team to win titles.
Raúl Speaking to Marca
