Kuwait contingent during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has lifted its ban on Kuwait provisionally, allowing the Gulf country’s athletes to march under their own flag at Saturday’s Asian Games opening ceremony in Jakarta.

However, Kuwait was warned by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) to steer clear of government interference in sport or face their third exile.

World bodies, led by the IOC and FIFA, had suspended Kuwait in 2015 for a second time since 2010 for political interference in sport.

The Kuwaiti team was delighted at the IOC decision. Watch the video below.

On March 12 1947, Enzo Ferrari fired up the 125 S, the first car to bear his name. That test-drive on the streets of Maranello marked the start of modern Ferrari history.

The then-modest factory quickly grew into one of the great internationally-renowned Made in Italy icons.

Now, exactly 70 years later, this week, Ferrari launches its official celebrations for this milestone anniversary.

Watch the history of the iconic brand unfold…

This past week saw the Red Bull Playstreets at Bad Gastien in Austria, where Swedish freestyle skier Jesper Tjader took to top prize.

As you can see here in this series of videos posted by Red Bull, it was a close battle at the top.

But, when it came time to drop in, Tjader stomped most all of his run with ease and style: a rightside double flatspin Japan grab followed by a frontside 450 on the Canon-Rail, then a switch 180 nosegrab, a leftside cork 360 mutegrab and a 450 gap on what’s known as ‘the mother-in-law-rail’.

The judge’s final decision was a nail-bitter, but Tjäder would score just ahead of Andri Ragettli in overall points to claim that first place spot.


You can see Tjader’s run above, while here is how Ragettli narrowly missed out.









In third place came 19-year-old Lukas Mullauer who lives next door to the setup of the Red Bull Playstreets setup.


You can watch Mullauer’s run below as the Austrian pipped Laurent De Martin of Switzerland by a 30 points difference, finishing on 99.
