Selecting the Olympic Sports
There are 28 sports permitted in the Summer Olympic
Games. The list of Olympic Sports has many of the world’s
best-loved sports on it, such as baseball, judo, soccer, tennis,
and volleyball. This list of sports hadn’t changed in 70 years,
 and the process for changing these sports is long and difficult.
That is why it was surprising news when the International
Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that it was studying
new sports for the list. At a meeting in Singapore in 2005, the
IOC voted on each of the 28 sports from the 2004 Olympic
 Games in Athens, Greece. Twenty-six of the 28 sports were
selected for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games, which took
place in London, England. The two sports that did not receive
50 percent of the votes were baseball and softball.
Because these two sports were not selected, the IOC
 started the process of voting for two new sports. The five
sports to select from were roller skating, golf, rugby, squash,
and karate. After the first vote, karate and squash were
submitted to the IOC for the final vote.
To become an Olympic sport, a sport must receive two-
 thirds of the votes of the IOC. When the final vote took place,
squash received 39 “yes” votes and 63 “no” votes. Karate
received 38 “yes” votes and 63 “no” votes. It meant that
neither squash nor karate would feature in the 2012 Olympic
Games. And sad fans didn’t believe that their sports could be
 selected for the 2016 Olympic Games.

Germany prepares adaptation of the TV Series “Merlí”
“Merlí”, the new TV3 series produced by Nova Veranda, based on an original idea and script by Héctor Lozano, directed by Eduard Cortés and starring Francesc Orella, will soon arrive Germany. A deal selling rights to the “Merlí” format will allow German audiovisual group Beta to adapt the adventures of this peculiar philosophy teacher and his favorite pupils, the Peripatetics.
The series “Merlí” finished shooting its third and last season last week, and its plot revolves around philosophy professor Merlí Bergeron (Francesc Orella). Like a modern-day Aristotle, Merlí chooses a group of High School students whom he teaches to reflect upon and question all aspects of life. This atypical, multifaceted professor confounds everyone around him as he encourages his students to set goals and objectives, sometimes using questionable methods.
The series continues to reap huge international success and is now preparing its arrival in Germany hand-in-hand with Beta thanks to an agreement with its international distributor Lagardère Studios Distribution, a strategic partner for Nova Veranda’s parent company Boomerang TV. This is not the first time the series has crossed borders. It has already aired through Netflix in the Spanish-speaking U.S. and in Latin America as well as on Canal Plus France’s Cinema+ Famillie network.
In this most recent agreement, the Beta Group has acquired the rights to adapt “Merlí” for the German market. In Spain, Movistar+ acquired broadcast rights for the series, which airs on the platform. The series is available nationwide for all of the platform’s subscribers and can be seen in its original (Catalonian) version with Castillian subtitles. “Merlí” has also been acquired by ETB for the Basque Country, where it will be dubbed into Euskera.
