NAIROBI, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- Elite Kenyan athletes have given a thumbs up on the decision by International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to freeze all new transfers of allegiance cases.

Olympic 800m champion David Rudisha said Wednesday foreigners have exploited the weak rules and misused Kenyan athletes with hopes of landing fortune in the distant land.

Rudisha said international championships are about specific qualities of countries and the right to brag, which must be maintained.

Rio Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge said though the move brings out stiffer competitions during international championships, every athlete deserve to hold in high esteem some values about their country, which must be the ones inspiring them to win.

"However, we must be cautious not to apply a blanket rule to stop the movement because some have genuine reasons. But most of it is exploitation, which IAAF has done well to curtail. I hope better rules and steps will be taken in future," Kipchoge said from Eldoret.

The athletes' reactions come after the IAAF Council on Monday suspended all new transfers of allegiance in athletics hence dealing a major blow to athletes hoping to change their citizenship and countries involved.

Athletics Kenya President Jack Tuwei said they have borne the brunt of transfer of allegiance, most coming just ahead of major championships, which rules out the spirit of competition, because most of the time, you only realize who your competition is on the track.

"They need to stop it and give our athletes and coaches chance to vet and assess their opponents in time. Most of them transfer suddenly and disappear from the radar only to appear in championships denying us the medals," he said.

On Monday, IAAF President Sebastian Coe proposed to his Council to freeze all new transfers of allegiance in athletics because "present rules are no longer fit for purpose".

Since 2003 Kenya has lost over 60 young athletes who are now competing for other countries. In fact at the Rio Olympics over 20 athletes born in Kenya, competed for their adopted countries with the most prominent ones Ruth Jebet and Eunice Kirwa winning gold (steeplechase) and silver (marathon).

Bahrain had 35 athletes in Rio and majority of them hailed from select African countries, particularly in Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Kenya.

Eliud Wambua, who is an official in ministry of education and a member of the Athletics Kenya (AK) youth committee, said many young athletes, mostly in primary and junior secondary school are lured to other countries without knowing what their contracts say and their poor parents are paid money to endorse the transfers.

"Though it is fine to take them abroad in hope of changing their lives, but it must be done above board and endorsed by the ministry," he said.

Denmark claims North Pole via Greenland ridge link

Scientific data shows Greenland's continental shelf is connected to a ridge beneath the Arctic Ocean air max 2018 kopen , giving Danes a claim to the North Pole and any potential energy resources beneath it, Denmark's foreign minister said.

Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard said Denmark will deliver a claim on Monday to a United Nations panel in New York that will eventually decide control of the area, which Russia and Canada are also coveting.

The five Arctic countries — the United States, Russia air max tn kopen , Norway, Canada and Denmark — all have areas surrounding the North Pole, but only Canada and Russia had indicated an interest in it before Denmark's claim.

Lidegaard told the AP that the Arctic nations so far "have stuck to the rules of the game" and he hoped they would continue to do so.

In 2008, the five pledged that control of the North Pole region would be decided in an orderly settlement in the framework of the United Nations air max 97 gold kopen , and possible overlapping claims would be dealt with bilaterally.

Interest in the Arctic is intensifying as global warming shrinks the polar ice, opening up possible resource development and new shipping lanes.

The area is believed to hold an estimated 13 percent of the world's undiscovered oil and 30 percent of its untapped gas.

Lidegaard said he expects no quick decisions, with other countries also sending in claims.

"This is a historical milestone for Denmark and many others as the area has an impact on the lives of lot of people. After the U.N. panel had taken a decision based on scientific data, comes a political process air max 97 silver kopen ," Lidegaard told The Associated Press in an interview on Friday. "I expect this to take some time. An answer will come in a few decades."

Between 2007 and 2012, Danish scientists with colleagues from Canada, Sweden and Russia surveyed a 2,000-kilometer- (1 air max 97 wit kopen ,240-mile-)long underwater mountain range that runs north of Siberia concluding that Greenland, a sparsely populated huge island that is a semi-autonomous Danish territory, is geologically attached to the ridge.

That prompted Danes to claim the right to exploit an area of 895,000 square kilometers (345 air max 97 zwart kopen ,600 square miles).

"The Lomonosov ridge is the natural extension of the Greenland shelf," ''said Christian Marcussen, a senior geophysicist with the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland. "Coincidentally, the North Pole which is a tiny air max 97 ultra kopen , tiny abstract spot lies in the area."

BEIJING, May 3 (Xinhua) -- As the biggest tax cut in U.S. history has a domino effect on the rest of the world, China may be about to become more aggressive in cutting its taxes to stay competitive.

China has been trying for years to reduce business costs. May 1 is the one year anniversary of VAT reform, which replaced all business taxes with value-added tax air max 97 dames kopen , the most significant tax overhaul for two decades.

Tangible goods have been subject to VAT for some time, but the levy on services was imposed on the value of a.
