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.

A bulldozer is seen at a magnesium factory near the Dead Sea December 16, 2008. The Dead Sea is slowly but surely drying up, and could be gone completely in 50 years if no action is taken. The water level is dropping at close to one metre (three feet) per year due to a sharp decrease in inflow from the Jordan and other rivers whose waters now irrigate fields.

Workers hold signs during protest outside German embassy in Tel Aviv
Workers from a magnesium plant hold signs during a protest outside the German Embassy in Tel Aviv January 21, 2009, urging Germany to prevent Volkswagen from ending its partnership in the plant. Volkswagen AG holds 35 percent of Dead Sea Magnesium, while Israel Chemicals, a maker of fertilisers and specialty chemicals, owns 65 percent. The joint venture in the Negev desert in Israel's south was formed in 1996. Last month, the German automaker sent ICL a letter saying it sought to pull out of the venture and transfer its stake to ICL. ICL has rejected the offer since the magnesium company has $100 million in bank debt. The placard reads, "Volkswagen gives up on the workforce of the Magnesium plant." REUTERS/Ammar Awad (ISRAEL)

RELATIVES OF BURIED MINERS WATCH RESCUE WORK IN LASSING.
Relatives of miners buried in a collapsed magnesium silicate mine for over two weeks watch rescue workers August 2, drill their way into a hollow where the 10 miners may be. Rescuers plan to lowera camera into the cavity to find out if anyone is still alive. The 10 men were buried in a massive cave-in on July 17 after descending into the mine in an attempt to find 24-year-old Georg Hainzl, trapped 60 metres (200 feet) down by a smaller collapse a few hours before. Hainzl was rescued from his 10-day ordeal in surprisingly good health last Sunday.

Rescuers said they expected to find out within hours if ten Austrian miners are dead or alive after drilling reached a depth of 118 metres in the morning. International experts are working together with Austrian authorities on a minimal chance to recover ten miners from some 120 metres underground after a landslide had hit the magnesium silicate mine.
