Hot air ballooning is a new pastime for Chinese Boutique Homme Air Max TN Noir Blanche , but it's catching on fast. Deng Zhangyu takes to the air with some brave spirits in Changzhou, Jiangsu.

Just a couple of years ago, Chen Chunyu could only imagine what it would be like to ascend 1,000 meters above the ground, to a place between the clouds and the sun. Now the hot air balloon pilot routinely takes "selfies" against a bird's-eye view of a city, then drifts away for the pure joy of floating through the air. Since 2011, Chen has flown over mountains and rivers, volcanos, grasslands, terraced fields and other picturesque places around China.

"It's different from taking a flight by airplane," he says of his special kind of aircraft that allows Google Earth-style sightseeing without a computer screen or cellphone. "It's a dreamlike feeling when you fly above the carpet-like clouds."

Chen runs a transportation company in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. He is one of the five pilots who have obtained a pilot certificate for hot-air balloons in the past two years there.

Across China, there are about 400 to 500 licensed balloonists, 90 percent of whom are individuals who get certified and then buy balloons on their own. The number of pilots started to rise with the new millennium, although the sport was introduced to the Chinese mainland in 1983.

In the 1980s, only professional pilots from aviation schools were allowed to fly these craft, explains Wu Gongyu, director of the ballooning commission of the Aero Sports Federation of China. Now, he says, more individuals who have money and time are taking up ballooning to relax and enjoy themselves.


ATHENS, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- Retired Greek triple jump athlete Pigi Devetzis will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport IAAF's and IOC's decision to strip her of the medals she had won at the Osaka World Championships in 2007 and the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 on doping charges, her lawyer announced in Athens.

The International Assosiation of Athletics Federations and the International Olympic Committee on Wednesday cancelled Devetzis' results for that period, Greek national news agency AMNA reported.

""We have requested from IOC more data regarding the tests of samples for the Beijing Games...The Olympic medalist will bring the case to CAS,"" her lawyer Michalis Dimitrakopoulos said in a press release.

Devetzis had won the silver medal in the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, the bronze in the 2008 Games and another bronze in Osaka.

Last year Greece's Athletics Federation (SEGAS) had announced that Greek authorities were formally notified by IAAF that Devetzis was tested positive for a banned substance in 2007.

The latest re-analysis of her samples from 2007 and 2008 tested positive for a banned substance so she was retrospectively disqualified from both competitions.

Devetzis insists that she has never used doping substances.

The athlete retired after IAAF gave her a two-year ban from taking part in tournaments following her refusal to submit a sample to anti-doping controllers in May 2009 in Ukraine.

"We utterly condemn this act," said English.

"Innocent people should never have to fear such violence when going about their daily lives, and New Zealand stands alongside the UK in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism," he said.

"Our thoughts are with the people of London, and in particular with the victims of today's shocking attack, and their families and friends."

BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- The official website of the Belt and Road Initiative (www.yidaiyilu.gov) was launched Tuesday, offering information on investment policies and enterprises involved in the initiative, among other topics.

The website, called the "Belt and Road Portal," also has an English version and is operated by the State Information Center.

The website aims to offer information in other languages such as Russian, French, Arabic and Spanish within this year, according to a statement on the website.

The initiative, proposed by China in 2013, aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient Silk Road trade routes.

The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation is scheduled to be held in Beijing from May 14 to May 15.
