Olympic leader Nuzman sends resignation letter from jail

em>By Stephen Wade, Associated Press /em> RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Carlos Nuzman sent his resignation letter as head of the Brazilian Olympic Committee from a prison on Wednesday. He's been held there since last week amid an investigation into a vote-buying scheme to bring the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro. The national Olympic committee immediately designated vice president Paulo Wanderley to replace Nuzman, who had headed the BOC for 22 years. Wanderley will serve the three years remaining on Nuzman's term. Speaking after meeting with the BOC's membership, Wanderley described Nuzman's resignation as 'a relief.' 'The resignation of the president, on a personal level, I think will speed up resolving our problems,' he said. Nuzman, who also headed last year's Rio Olympics, had already been suspended as a member by the International Olympic Committee. Nuzman's arrest has further tarnished last year's games, which were plagued budget cuts, spotty attendance, and reports of endemic corruption. They also left behind a half-dozen 'white elephant' sports venues. Brazil officially spent $13 billion to put on the games. A year after, the organizing committee still owes creditors between $30-40 million. Wanderley said 'all of us were taken by surprise' by Nuzman's arrest and allegations he helped channel at least $2 million to Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal. Brazilian and French investigators also said Nuzman had 16 kilos of gold — worth about $750,000 — stored in a depository. Wanderley's main job is to convince the IOC to lift Brazil's suspension, which cuts of some its funding. '''I will send answers to the IOC as soon as possible to all the questions they have asked us about,' Wanderley said, adding that he'd had a courtesy phone call recently with IOC President Thomas Bach. As the Olympic body met inside its headquarters, a handful of protesters gathered outside. Many carried placards saying 'Give the athletes a true vote.' Luiz Lima, who quit several months ago as the No. 2 person in the federal sports ministry, was among those carrying a signboard. Lima, an Olympic swimmer at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, said Brazilian athletes had 'almost no power.' He said the 30 federations that make up the Brazilian Olympic Committee each have one vote in setting policy. He said athletes as a collective have only one. 'This is only one vote in 31, which does not seem like any fair representation,' Lima. Lima said Brazil's national government gives the Brazilian Olympic Committee about 200 million reals ($65 million) yearly. He said in his tenure in the sports ministry he pushed for giving athletes and federations the money directly, bypassing the BOC. 'That got little support and was one of the reasons I left,' he said. .....»»

Documentary about anxiety taps Michael Phelps

em>By Mark Kennedy, Associated Press /em> NEW YORK (AP) — A new documentary about anxiety argues that everyone to some extent suffers from stress, nerves and social fear. And, to make their point, the filmmakers have enlisted as Exhibit A the most decorated Olympian in history. Michael Phelps appears in 'Angst' to share his story of being bullied and depressed, leading to severe anxiety. The swimmer, winner of 28 Olympic medals, would look in the mirror and not like what he saw. 'Once I opened up about that and things that I had kept inside of me for so many years, I then found that life was a lot easier. I got to the point where I understood that it's OK to not be OK,' he says in the film. 'Angst,' an IndieFlix film designed to be screened at schools and community centers, features candid interviews with children and young adults discussing their anxiety, along with advice from mental health experts and resources and tools. Phelps is like a muscular explanation mark for what the filmmakers wanted to show — that even world champions can feel low. 'I'm grateful because my mission with this film is to help make the world a better place and I believe he is so additive on that level,' said Scilla Andreen, CEO and co-founder of IndieFlix. 'If we can introduce prevention, self-care and well-being to our children — even in the pre-K and kindergarten years — they can have a completely different life.' Andreen hopes the film will reach more than 3 million people around the world from 25,000 community and school screenings. 'Angst' was filmed in the U.S. and United Kingdom and is appropriate for children starting at age 10. 'Anxiety is totally treatable,' she said. 'It can be a precursor to so many things that can then lead to addiction, homelessness, dropping out of school and a host of other mental health challenges.' Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge in the U.S., impacting 54 percent of females and 46 percent of males, with age 7 being the median age of onset, according to the World Health Organization. The American College Health Association has found that undergraduates reporting 'overwhelming anxiety' jumped to 62 percent in 2016 from 50 percent in 2011. 'Talking about it is the most effective thing you can do and, of course, the last thing you want to do,' said Andreen. In addition to talking, writing about your feelings or connecting to music can help. 'Anything that helps you to take a break from the anxiety and move the energy to the front of the brain.' Andreen, whose distribution streaming service embraces projects that push for social change, was bullied as a child and learned something about herself while working on the film. 'Everyone has anxiety. And I learned in making the movie that I have social anxiety. I never even knew that. I just thought I was born less than everyone else and that was my lot in life. I would always have to work harder, try harder, never fit in,' she said. 'I don't feel so alone.' In addition to the documentary, IndieFlix is creating a web-based series on anxiety to dig deeper into the issue and has produced a virtual reality component that allows users to experience a panic attack firsthand. Andreen believes anxiety levels are so high in part because of the pace of modern life and the amount of time people spend with their electronic devices, which takes away from connecting in person and developing empathy. 'We need more face time with each other,' said Andreen, a former Emmy-nominated costume designer. 'We just stopped doing it. We're out of practice, that's all.' .....»»
