Rugby union has been a men's medal sport at the modern Summer Olympic Games, being played at 4 of the first se7en competitions..On 13 August 2009 it was announced that the IOC executive board was recommending rugby sevens for inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games and on 9 October 2009 the full IOC, at its 121st IOC Session in Copenhagen, voted to include Rugby Sevens in the 2016 games..Separate competitions for men and women will be held, using a similar format to the existing IRB Sevens World Series..France won the gold, beating Great Britain 27 points to 8 and defeating Germany 27 points to 17..

Anene Booysen (October 30, 1995 – February 2, 2013) was a 17-year-old girl who was found by a security guard the morning after she had been gang-raped and disemboweled by having her abdomen slit open at a construction site in Bredasdorp, in the Western Cape, South Africa on February 2, 2013; she was still alive..She died from her injuries in hospital 6 hours later.. She managed to identify one of her attackers before her death..A funeral was held at the Dutch Reformed Church in Bredasdorp, about 128 km east of Cape Town on February 9, 2013..On 13 Feb, a protest, led by Annie Lennox, was staged at St. George's Cathedral, Cape Town..Bredasdorp is situated at an elevation of between 40 and 120 metres (130 and 390 ft) on the slopes of the Heuningberg (Afrikaans for "Honey Mountain")..The town has a museum dedicated to the shipwreck of the Arniston, which is well worth a visit..

Leigh Matthews (8 July 1983 – 9 July 2004) was a South African university student who was kidnapped and murdered. Her disappearance and murder sparked a media frenzy, with the ensuing investigation and court case being one of the most closely followed in South African history, she was abducted from the parking lot at Bond University..On 21 July 2004, her body was discovered by a municipal worker cutting grass in the open veld next to the R82 highway in Walkerville, south of Johannesburg..She had been shot 4 times.. Although she was found naked, she had not been sexually assaulted..On 24 August 2004, top police detective Superintendent Piet Byleveld took over the investigation.. He identified 24-year-old Donovan Moodley as his prime suspect..Moodley was also a student at Bond University attended by Matthews, but was not acquainted with her..Steenkamp and Anene Booysen, both young South African women killed in 2013, were named SA Persons of the year 2013 by the Daily Maverick...

The Leigh Matthews Trophy is an annual award given by the AFL Players Association to the Most Valuable Player in the Australian Football League. It is named in honour of Leigh Matthews, who won the first MVP award in 1982, when the league was still known as the Victorian Football League.. The trophy was first awarded in 2002, and all previous VFLPA/AFLPA MVPs were retrospectively given the Matthews Trophy in 2005. It is awarded at a special AFLPA Awards ceremony..The Leigh Matthews Trophy is strictly for the most valuable player, not the best and fairest as is the case with the Brownlow Medal..'s only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start screaming..Have you ever gotten high on nitrous oxide?..
