BOLD PREDICTION: Sports broadcaster CLARE BALDING said that the England women's football team "will bring home a World Cup before the men's squad reclaim the title." Speaking at the launch of BT Sport, the telecom company's lavishly funded challenge to Sky's iron grip on Premiership football viewing, Balding said that "prospects for the women's game were improving." Balding: "Look at the women's Super League deal. That will really make a difference in a sport that has so much potential but is still semi-professional" (London GUARDIAN, 5/9).
LASTING LEGACY: China has shown its tribute to Spanish former IOC President JUAN ANTONIO SAMARANCH with a circular-shaped, 144,000-square-meter building. Samaranch brought the Olympics to Beijing in '08. Three years after his death, Samaranch Memorial Center was inaugurated April 21 in Tianjin, honoring the man who led the IOC from '80-01. Samaranch is the first foreign person China has awarded with this honor (EL PERIODICO, 5/11).
