ATHENS nike air max 2017 red uk , Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- As cleaning crews were withdrawing banners on Monday, the 32nd "Authentic" Athens Marathon winners were still wondering who is the guy depicted on the medals they received from the organizers.

For Greeks, Grigoris Lambrakis is the man who breathed new life in the Marathon race in the 20th century and another symbol of the timeless struggle for peace.

Each year since 1982 the Athens Marathon is dedicated to his memory, underlining the fact that the race for Greece is much more than a major sports event, it is a celebration closely interlinked with the country's history.

This time, they depicted Lambrakis' portrait on the awarded medals and the Greek organizers of the Hellenic Sports Federation were making plans for next year's race to preserve the late Greek pacifist Lambrakis and ancient soldier Pheidippides.

Born in a small village of Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece in 1912 nike air max 2017 pink womens uk sale , Lambrakis was a Greek and Balkan champion in the long and triple jump in his youth.

He later became an anti-fascist fighter during the Second World War, a doctor by profession, an independent Left leaning deputy in the Greek parliament in 1961 and above all humanitarian and pacifist to the end of his life in 1963.

In 1943 Lambrakis set up the Union of Greek Athletes and organized regular competitions to fund food-banks for the starving Greeks.

By the early 1960s, amidst turbulent times for Greece and the world, he had build a profile of a political activist who participated in several international initiatives against the war in Vietnam and other conflicts.

On April 21, 1963 he organized the first Greek Marathon Peace march that would follow the trace of the marathon. He started from the Marathon Tomb nike air max 2017 pink womens uk , but never reached Athens. He was arrested due to a police ban.

A month later during an anti-war rally in the northern city port of Thessaloniki Lambrakis was critically injured by a motorcycle in an attack which was later attributed to a gang of Right wing thugs.

He died on May 27, but with his peace walk he continued to inspire advocates of peace. Six years later his story was portrayed in the film "Z" by Greek director Costas Gavras.

Lambrakis' motto was "It is so beautiful to live for Peace, it is so great to die for Peace."

About 35,000 participants raced Sunday in the Athens Marathon with the finishing line set up at the Panathinaic stadium. Kenyan Felix Kipchirchir Kandie won the race with a new course record of 2:10:37.

As the born place of the sport of Marathon, Greece also want to explore the story of Pheidippides to make the event more historical and world known.

Pheidippides covered the first 42 kilometers distance from the battlefield of the city of Marathon 2,500 years ago to announce to Athenians the victory against Persian forces nike air max 2017 pink uk , before collapsing dead from exhaustion.

The soldier, as a symbol of the free man who fights to the end for high ideals and values, inspired the modern Marathon races worldwide.

Computer company seeks to beef up profit drivers with $2.1b acquisition

Lenovo Group Ltd said it will close the acquisition of IBM Corp's x86 server division by Wednesday nike air max 2017 orange womens uk sale , giving the Chinese tech company another profit driver in the post-personal computer era.

The acquisition is expected to give Lenovo more flexibility in the global enterprise market, something that the world's biggest personal computer maker has been eyeing for a long time.

Yang Yuanqing, chief executive of Lenovo, said the purchase of the x86 server unit will help the company expand in the enterprise market.

"Although we have been doing for-enterprise business for years, the company remains a small player on global stage. The acquisition has enhanced our capabilities around the globe," said Yang.

Lenovo is anticipating $5 billion revenue from its new server unit in the first year after the buyout nike air max 2017 orange womens uk , according to Yang.

After purchasing the x86 business from IBM, Lenovo will become the world's third-biggest server vendor by market share behind Hewlett-Packard Co and Dell Inc.

Yang said Lenovo is ready to challenge HP and Dell, although the United States-based companies were able to "steal" former IBM users over the past few months. Lenovo's major server market will remain in China after the deal, he said.

Gene Cao, senior analyst at Forrester Research Inc, said: "Lenovo is planning to build the enterprise infrastructure nike air max 2017 orange uk , including servers and storage, which primarily focuses on the enterprise market in both domestic and overseas markets."

The buyout will help Lenovo claim the title as the largest x86 server provider in China and strengthen its brand awareness in the enterprise market, Cao said, adding the Chinese company expects its x86 servers to drive both low- and high-end growth because the products have higher margins than PCs.

According to a report from industry researcher IDC, server demand from the government, telecommunications nike air max 2017 mens uk sale , electricity and financial sectors on the Chinese mainland has shown a significant rebound this year, providing a bigger growth cushion for Lenovo.

The quarterly x86 server shipment volume in the country is around 350,000 units this year, representing a roughly 20 percent year-on-year growth.

The factory revenue of x86 servers in the first quarter exceeded $1 billion, a 24.5 percent growth year-on-year, said IDC.

Spending approximately $200 million less than the initial price nike air max 2017 mens uk , Lenovo is using $2.1 billion to acquire IBM's System x, BladeCenter blade servers, blade networking and maintenance operations and a number of software products. IBM will retain its System z mainframes and the Power architecture-based server product line.

Lower expenses from Lenovo were because of changes in the valuation o
