THE HAGUE cheap adidas ultra boost uncaged black , Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- The Russian women captured the European volleyball title after edging hosts the Netherlands 3-0 (25-14, 25-20, 25-20) in the final on Sunday in front of 11 cheap adidas ultra boost uncaged ,000 spectators in Rotterdam.

In a packed Ahoy arena the home crowd hoped for a repeat of the convincing 3-0 victory over Turkey in the semifinals on Saturday, but the Russian women, who had beaten Serbia 3-1 in the semis cheap adidas yeezy boost 350 v2 sale , were of different class.

Although the Netherlands opened the score in the final match and even took a lead of three points (3-6), the impressive offensive power and the efficient blocking of the Russian team turned the match around quickly.

Russia claimed their second consecutive continental title and their 19th European crown in total, of which thirteen titles under the flag of the Soviet Union.

For the third time the Dutch women had to settle for the second place at the European championships cheap adidas yeezy boost 350 v2 , after their final defeats in 1991 and 2009. Only in 1995 the Netherlands was able to capture the title, as hosts.

BANGKOK, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- China's Fan Zhendong on Saturday clinched the gold medal in men's singles at the 22th Asian Table Tennis Championships (ATTC) in Pattaya cheap adidas ultra boost 3.0 black , Thailand.

Fan beat his teammate Xu Xin 4:3 to win the sixth gold for the Chinese team and the fourth for himself at the ATTC that concluded on Saturday.

China also pocketed gold in men's team, women's team, mixed doubles cheap adidas ultra boost 3.0 , men's doubles and women's singles.

"Of course I'm very excited to win four medals here at the Asian Championships, especially in the men's singles. I have lost to Xu Xin several times after playing full seven-games matches in international tournaments, so I had a lot of desire to win this match against him cheap adidas tubular ," Fan said after the final.

"Playing in four events has been a great challenge for myself. It has been tiring, but also very rewarding," he said.

It was definitely an exciting match cheap adidas nmd xr4 sale , also difficult mentally and strategically, Xu Xin said after missing the gold medal.

Later in the day, Kim Hye Song and Ri Mi Gyong from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) grabbed the final gold medal of the ATTC after accounting for Japan's Hirano Miu and Ito Mima 4:0 in the final of women's doubles.

The Chinese pair cheap adidas nmd xr4 , Zhu Yuling and Chen Meng, withdrew from the semi-final as Chen got injured on the previous day and thus was unable to proceed with the contest.

As a result, the DPRK pair advanced to the final automatically.

More than 290 players from 37 countries and regions in Asia contested in the ATTC that opened on Sept. 26.

HO CHI MINH CITY, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Many farmers in Ca Mau, Vietnam's southernmost province which may see 30 percent of its land submerged by sea water in the future, have intentionally broken four seawater encroachment-preventing dykes, killing rice paddy fields.

In Ca Mau and some other rice-producing hubs in the Mekong delta provinces, many rice paddies have now been inundated with saltwater.

"We know that it is illegal to intentionally break the dykes, but we just want to breed prawns to escape poverty. We are as poor as a church mice if we only grow rice," Nguyen Thi Bi, 60, told Xinhua as she was standing on the edge of a rice field-turned-to-aquaculture pond in An Xuyen commune in Ca Mau city.

With over one hectare of rice paddies, Bi's family used to earn several hundred U.S. dollars from harvesting two crops a year. "But, when natural disasters strike, like this year's prolonged drought and saltwater encroachment, we are empty-handed," she said, while feeding prawns and crabs.

Now, Bi's family has 0.3 hectares of aquaculture ponds made from agricultural land, which brings them several thousands of U.S. dollars from four or five prawn and crab-raising crops a year.

In Khanh Hoi commune in the U Minh district of Ca Mau province, wearing an old green, broad-brimmed hat, Phan Ngoc Lan was removing weeds, collecting rubbish and cleansing an inlet sluice hidden in a long road-cum-dyke, which prevents seawater encroachment and keeps freshwater for rice cultivation.

"When building this road-cum-dyke, farmers like us placed this inlet sluice and pipes inside to bring saltwater to fields to breed prawns," the middle-aged man with weather-beaten skin said, smiling.

Bien Bach commune in the Thoi Binh district of Ca Mau province, meanwhile, has an area of 4,200 hectares, most of which are designed to only grow rice, but now, up to 3,500 hectares are being used by local farmers to both grow rice and raise prawns.

"We know that many farmers are breaking rules, but we have to ignore them, because the design is not suitable to climate change; rice output and prices are low, and many residents are poor," a communal official told Xinhua.

According to the Ca Mau Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the province's farmers have intentionally converted nearly 2,700 hectares of rice-growing area into aquaculture ponds in the last three years. Now, every year, they grow one rice crop and then breed one prawn crop.

Similar situations are occurring in other Mekong Delta provinces. The combined rice-growing and prawn-raising areas in Kien Giang province's coastal districts annually increased output by an average of over 7 percent in the 2010-2015 period. Bac Lieu province currently has nearly 30,000 hectares of combined rice-growing and prawn-raising areas that are rapidly expanding in the four districts of Hong Dan, Phuoc Long, Gia Rai and Vinh Loi, said the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

A local agriculture expert, Prof. Vo Tong Xuan, rector of South Can Tho University, said that Mekong delta provinces should not set aside areas that are too big for rice growing. According to him, allowing people to both grow rice and breed prawns, crabs and other kinds of seafoo.
