Children practice handstands during gymnastics lessons at the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School in Shanghai, China, March 23, 2016. China's sports system has been enormously successful since the country returned to the Olympic fold in 1980, culminating with the host nation topping the medals' table at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And yet, with the Rio de Janeiro Games less than three months away, the system is beginning to break down due to the shifting demographics of a more prosperous nation. Some schools have closed and others are adjusting the way they work. Some, like the Shanghai Yangpu Youth Amateur Athletic School, are going into kindergartens to advertise gymnastics as an after-school play time activity to parents. "We call it happy gymnastics," said principal Zhu Zengxiang. REUTERS/Aly Song SEARCH "CHINA OLYMPIC SCHOOL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "THE WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES

Keto,16, a member of Egyptian parkour group "EGY PK", practices his skills in front of the Pyramid of Khufu, the largest of the Great Pyramids of Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, December 9, 2014. EGY PK, one of the first parkour groups in Egypt, are training ahead of performing publicly during the year-end Christamas celebrations, to promote tourism in Egypt. Egypt's tourism revenues jumped 112 percent to about $2 billion in the third quarter of 2014, a tourism ministry official said, suggesting the key industry was showing signs of recovery, albeit from a particularly bad third quarter last year. Tourism, an important source of foreign currency, has been hammered since the popular uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Picture taken December 9, 2014.
