2015.06.12 Crown Princess Mary joined the youngest members of the AaB professional sports club in Aalborg. 

One of the reasons behind the visit, was to see how AaB’s children’s division work with the project ‘Klubfidusen’, that aims to counteract bullying and to strengthen the well-being and solidarity, among the youngest players in the age group 6-12 years. The project is an initiative of The Mary Foundation.

“Many Danish children begin to play football, but unfortunately every 8th child stops because of teasing. That’s not all right. All children have the right to thrive and they must all feel welcome,” said the Crown Princess.

In pouring rain Mary dribbled alongside the young football players, and she didn’t seem the least bit bothered by the rain. 

“Yes, we got pretty wet, but that didn’t matter. It was a real pleasure to play football. Although I don’t have much experience with the game. But it was a pleasure to visit AaB. I have great respect for the club, which has room for both amateurs and professionals. It is living proof that unity gives good results,” said Mary.

Mary wouldn’t reveal who her favorite club is though, “It’s my little secret. But at home in the family, both my husband and my children are really fond of the game. Prince Christian is almost obsessed with football, and he plays in HIK,” she said with a smile.

The Kulm Hotel St Moritz ( is hoping to nurture the next generation of golfers by offering free golf lessons and etiquette golf classes for all its young guests up to the age of 12 years every Tuesday and Thursday morning from now until mid-September, when the hotel’s summer season comes to a close.

The hotel’s desire to encourage young golfers stems from a long association with golf: the Engadine, where the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz is located, is known as “The Golf Centre of the Alps” thanks, in part, to the creation of the hotel’s own 9-hole golf course in 1891, making it one of the oldest golf courses in Switzerland – and one of the highest in Europe at an altitude of almost 2000 metres.

As a result, the Kulm Hotel already has a loyal golf following and is keen to encourage the children of golfing guests to follow in their footsteps along the fairway, thereby eliminate the possibility of creating a generation of golfing orphans!


Age: 27
Country: Japan
Weight category: -57kg
Achievements: London 2012 Olympic champion, 2010 world champion

When did you start judo?
I started judo when I was six years old. I have five brothers and sisters and they all practiced judo.

Did you dream of representing Japan from the beginning?
When I was in secondary school, aged about 12 years old, I was dreaming of becoming an Olympic champion in judo.

What was the moment when you knew judo would become your full-time career?
Until University, I wasn’t the strongest judoka. At that stage I started to develop more responsibility and I became stronger and stronger. It was a very important time for me as I was fighting in Japan and internationally and my results were continually improving.

What are your memories of London 2012?
I can’t remember back to London 2012 (laughs). All my family were there so it was a really special moment to win in front of them and they were a big part of my success.

Do you think judo is more than a sport?
Judo has a great spirit and I want to show everyone the values of the sport when I compete.

Do you consider yourself a role model?
Me? (laughs) It is very nice if people think this.

Do you know the nickname which fans and media use to describe you?
The Assassin (laughs). I don’t know how to react sometimes when people call me this but it is nice to have a nickname. It is a sign that I have made an impression in my competitions.

What are your thoughts on the rule changes?
I like them. They are good for me. They suit my style and I felt good when I returned in Dusseldorf. I needed a break after London because my motivation was low. Now I want to focus again on the World Championships and then the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

What do you think of the new young generation of Japanese judoka in the -57kg category who have emerged while you took a break?
It is good competition which everyone needs. We have very strong judoka. I feel this when I compete at the All Japan Judo Championships and in domestic training. Champions can build champions.

What do you think of the new gold judogi backpatch for Olympic champions?
(laughs) I like it. The colour is nice. Hopefully Japan can have many gold backpatches in the future.


anonymous asked:

Hi! How are you doing? Do you think a 12 year age gap is too much? Like if an 18 year old were to date a 30 year old?

Hello! Everything is alright, thank you!
Oh gosh, no. Age is just a number. Don’t worry! My boyfriend is 27 years older. It does not matter.

anonymous asked:

please explain British school. For me private means expensive & public means state funds. First "Grammar school" = elementary school, age 6-11 then we have middle school (11-14), high school (14-18), then university/college aka secondary education. For me, Prep school is just an expensive high school. From what I gathered, you have a different meaning for "grammar school", "primary school" "secondary school" "prep school" "college" & your 6th form is a mystery. Also do you wear uniforms for all?

Heya! First, the easiest question. Yes, we wear uniforms! They vary depending on the kind of school, so bear with me. Also, this is a loooong post, sorry.

Primary school = age 5-12 - Reception & Years 1-6

Primary schools can be plain old Primary schools, religious (CoE/Church of England, Catholic) or private. Most religious primary schools are also government-run, esp the CoE ones, as that is the official religion of the UK. Uniforms can look like this - summer, winter, private school

(Pre-)Prep Schools = age 7-13 ish.

Prep schools are a dying breed, and are really expensive private schools that prep (ha!) children of very rich people for Public Schools (see below). All prep schools are different and if you ever meet someone who actually went/goes to one, you’d need to ask them what years their prep school took and so on. Uniforms look like this.

Secondary school = age 12-16 (or 18) Years 7-11 (or 13)

Secondary schools can be comprehensive schools, grammar schools, state schools or private schools. They can also be religious or secular. Comprehensives are what we call plain old government-run, catchment-area schools. Grammar schools are also government-run, but they require an entrance exam to enter and are generally not catchment area (and therefore tend to do slightly better in league tables as they get to pick who attends). 

Public schools and Private schools both have fees. Private schools are schools that charge students to attend, or have scholarships. Public schools also charge students, but they are the really old, really posh ones, back when ‘public’ meant that the school was open to anyone who could pay the fee (back in a time when the truly rich had private tutors). Eton is a Public school.

We also have Academies and Free Schools which get more complicated but we’ll leave that for now… Uniforms can look like this (posh Public Schools will almost always have the blazers, but otherwise the styles are interchangeable for the other types of school) - 

College/Sixth Form = age 16-18 (Years 12-13)

It’s basically the last two years of education. (Bear in mind that Eggsy is old enough that mandatory education was only up to age 16 then and he might well have left school with only GCSEs. Mandatory education is up to 18 now.) Many secondary schools have sixth forms attached to their schools, and is a name from the era when secondary school years were called First Form, Second Form, etc. 

College is what you call it if you leave Secondary School or your Secondary School has no sixth form attached to it and you attend another institution for Years 12 and 13. 


University is where you go to get a degree. Most usual degree courses are three years in the UK, and you never ever ever call 90% of them college, unless of course your university is separated into colleges (such as Oxbridge colleges, or University of London colleges).

ETA: This is only school in England. Scotland has a completely different Secondary education system.


My evolution

Picture 1: Age 2, with my 7 year old brother

Picture 2: Age 7, with my 80 year old grandma (I can tell how old I was because I still have eyelashes in this picture.  Thanks, trichotillomania)

Picture 3: Age 12, with my 12 year old dog Pop Tart

Picture 4:  Age 14

Picture 5-6: Age 15.  I was modelling in my third show.

Picture 7: Age 16 - My metabolism had slowed down, and I was beginning to gain weight.

Picture  8: Age 17.  I had pulled out all my eyelashes once again and was beginning to pull out my hair.

Picture 9: Age 20.  Sick of having bald spots, I shaved my head a year ago.  I’m down 15lbs from my heaviest, 185lbs, but I’m still bigger than I’d like.  I also have a nasty rash on my face and have NO CLUE where it came from.

I finally get to check sl chem off my list of worries 🙌
