GENEVA, March 10 (Xinhua) -- The International Olympic Committee has mourned the death of three French athletes who were killed in an helicopter crash in Argentina on Monday.


London Olympic swimming champion Camille Muffat cheap air jordan 5 wine , Beijing Olympic boxing bronze medallist Alexis Vastine and yachtswoman Florence Arthaud were among ten people killed when two helicopters collided during the filming of a reality show.


"We are shocked by this sad news," said IOC president Thomas Bach in a statement.


"Our thoughts are with the families and friends of these great athletes who have left us."


"With them, the world of sport and the Olympic family have lost three of their key members. They were all not only champions in their sport but also contributed greatly as role models."


The IOC said the Olympic flag would be flown at half-mast for three days at its headquarters.


World swimming governing body FINA also expressed its sadness for the death of Muffat, winner of the women's 400m free at the London Games.


"The FINA family is shocked with the dreadful news," said FINA president Julio Maglione.


BEIJING cheap air jordan 5 bordeaux , Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- The zodiac animal of China's coming Lunar New Year has caused much confusion in the English world, as its translation results in at least two candidates: sheep or goat.


Chinese folklorists say the animal symbol can be either a sheep or a goat but more likely goat, given the latter's popularity as a farm animal among Han Chinese.


The Chinese lunar calendar assigns an animal symbol to each year in every 12-year cycle. Yet the Chinese character for the eighth zodiac animal is "Yang", which can refer to either of the two ruminants when used without attributes.


Huang Yang, a prominent researcher on the role of sheepgoats in Chinese culture air jordan 5 wine pre order , says tracing the origin of the zodiacal Yang could be difficult, as the Chinese zodiac first appeared after the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 BC), when the Chinese people did not differentiate between sheep and goats in language or in sacrificial offering.


Both species have a long history of domestication in China and have appeared on oracle bone scripts and other artifacts since prehistoric times, according to Huang, who in 2012 challenged the saying that Chinese are "descendants of the dragon" by arguing that the earliest Chinese actually worshipped the meek ruminants.


"But if we judge from the fact that the Chinese zodiac is a Han tradition air jordan 5 bordeaux pre order , Yang are more likely goats, which are more common livestock for the Han Chinese," he tells Xinhua in a phone interview.


Shaggy sheep are a common sight in north China's prairies and were domesticated by Chinese earlier than goats, but goats are more commonly raised in areas populated by Han Chinese, Huang says.


Images on China's zodiac stamps and papercuttings are often bearded goats. The replica of the Yang bronze statue that once formed part of a zodiac fountain in the looted Old Summer Palace also has a goat head.


Fang Binggui air jordan 5 wine for sale , a folklorist based in southeast China's Fuzhou City, says the image of the zodiac Yang is open to regional interpretation. "People depict the zodiac animal based on the most common Yang in their region. So it's often sheep in the north while goats in the south."


Few ordinary Chinese are troubled by the sheepgoat distinction.


"I've never thought about that question before. Do we have to tell them apart?" asks Chen Xufeng, an office clerk in Beijing.


"I've seen more goats in zodiac images, but I prefer to buy a sheep mascot, as sheep are more fluffy and lovely air jordan 5 bordeaux for sale ," he says.


However, the ambiguity has whipped up discussion in the West. A.
