|MELBOURNE， Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- Senior Australian Olympic officials have thrown their support behind a lottery system to finance Olympic athletes.
Under the proposed lottery， people in Australia would be able to buy lottery tickets with proceeds going towards funding sport and the arts.
John Bertrand， President of Swimming Australia， said the lottery would raise between 22 and 37 million U.S. dollars in additional funding for Olympic campaigns.
A similar system is used in Britain and has been credited as partly responsible for Britain's rise to prominence in the Olympics， as the nation increased its medal tally from 15 medals， including just one gold， at the 1996 games to 67 medals at Rio in 2016 including 27 gold.
Bertrand said introducing a lottery in Australia was "an obvious solution" and extra funding would "absolutely" guarantee Olympic success.
"A lotto system has been in place in the UK for many years now and the dividends have been obvious. We've never really considered the Brits a sporting nation but at the Olympics they've done extremely well and part of that is the funding base they have，" Bertrand told Melbourne radio station Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) on Monday.
Australia recorded it worst medal tally in 24 years at the Rio Olympics， taking home just 29 medals， eight of which were gold， less than half the country's best Olympic result at Athens in 2004 when it won 17 gold medals.
John Wylie， chairman of the Australian Sports Commission (ASC)， joined Bertrand in supporting the lottery， saying it would likely be an online venture run by an established lottery operator.
"We'll make sure that any lottery along these lines is run in a highly regulated fashion that is consistent with responsible gambling，" Wylie told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Monday.
"We're very conscious that we want to raise more revenue for Australian sport but we want to do it in a way that's responsible.
"We think there is an opportunity here to do something good for the country to put more money into high performance programs but also community sporting programs， which are underfunded.
"We would outsource the management of the lottery itself to an established operator， someone who has experience and acumen in this area."
The ASC currently receives 190 million U.S. dollars in grants every year， a figure Wylie said is falling further and further behind the funding provided to Olympic campaigns in other countries.
"The fact is we are underfunded... (but) we are not just sticking our hand out and looking for more taxpayer funds，" he said.
"We are unambiguously and unashamedly standing up for sport and saying this matters."
It's rare that professional -athletes are able to retire on their own terms - so rare that we remember vividly the ones who do. Peyton Manning -retired -after his Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50. -Player-coach Bill Russell stepped down after leading the Boston Celtics to the 1961 NBA championship. Joe DiMaggio retired after his New York Yankees won the 1951 World Series.
On July 12 Cheap Eric Tomlinson Jersey , San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan left the NBA in similar fashion. Although the Spurs didn't win a championship last season (losing to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference semifinals), Duncan retired in much the same way that he played the game - quietly Cheap Brandon Shell Jersey , efficiently, professionally. The Spurs released a short statement Cheap Wesley Johnson Jersey , and that was that.
There was no press conference, no ghost-written -essay in Sports Illustrated. No plans for a "farewell tour Cheap Jermaine Kearse Jersey ," the type Duncan's contemporary Kobe Bryant embarked upon last season in order to soak up national attention, collect a -franchise-hampering paycheck and stunt the development of several of the Lakers' young players.
Duncan's ego has always been considerably smaller than his 6-foot 11-inch (2.11-meter) frame. Despite a gaudy resume that includes five NBA titles Cheap Terrence Brooks Jersey , three NBA Finals MVP awards and 15 All-Star teams, Duncan has always behaved more like a role player than the greatest power forward in league history. Even his nickname ("The Big Fundamental") implies substance over style.
Duncan's personality made him a great fit in San Antonio Cheap Kony Ealy Jersey , a mid-sized media market far away from the glamor of Los Angeles and the venom of New York City. How appropriate, too Cheap DeMario Davis Jersey , that he played his entire career for Gregg Popovich, a curmudgeonly coach who has always sought players willing to sacrifice their individual needs for the overall good of the team.
During an NBA off-season dominated by flashy free agent signings Cheap Morris Claiborne Jersey , Duncan was able to retire with far less fanfare than many of his peers. Even better, he was able to do so at the time of his choosing Cheap Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , on his own terms.
A FICO Score below 620 is considered as a subprime credit score. Traditional lending sources often deny loans to such persons because they belong to the ‘high risk’ category. Individuals with bad credit ratings seek loans from alternative sources. You can order a copy of your credit report once in twelve months according to the Fair Credit Reporting Act. It is always better to check your credit report and be aware of what to expect before you apply for a car loan.
There are a number of factors that could lead to bad credit such as poor financial advice, unexpected loss of employment besides the inexperience of youth. Low scores obviously mean hesitant lending and cringing demeanors of the lenders. Auto-financing becomes a hassle and it can be frustrating when you like a car so much and you want to buy it or the car is just the need of the hour and you are unable to make any headway towards acquiring it.
First Cheap Kelvin Beachum Jersey , it is important that you help yourself to boost your credit score. And for hard working and conscientious individuals that is not difficult.
