Nathalie Du Toit the South African amputee swimmer (Paralympic gold medallist) finished fourth in the 10km swim, which was incredible if you think that she had to compete with two-legged athletes, and good enough to qualify for the Olympics.
Du Toit will now become the first amputee athlete to compete in a swim event in Olympic history.

    I just started trading Forex pairs and I need to be able to collect price data for the last 10 time periods (hours, days or weeks) so that I can input this information into my trading platform to give me an idea on where the price of the currency pair will move next. Can anyone tell me how to get this info into my yahoo finance page so that it updates with the movement of the currency pairs? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!! Patrick

    Между прочим, история ее появления была очень интересной и весьма оригинальной. Так, в конце 20 века двое известных разработчиков приступили к разработкам. И мало кто знал в тот момент, что буквально через несколько лет игра станет столь популярной по всей Земле. Правда, у одного из разработчиков, имеющего прозвище «Гусятник», уже был аналогичный опыт – известная стрелялка «Quake 2». В марте того же года игра получила свое название, а первая бета-версия вышла уже летом. Тогда все игроманы ринулись ее тестировать, и интерес к игрушке не пропал до сегодняшнего дня. А все потому, что игроки, которые так ее любят, имеют все, что нам обещали авторы.
