LAUSANNE http://www.camisetaseleccionmexicana.com/camiseta-jesus-molina.html , Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach presented former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan with the Olympic Order in Gold on Thursday.


Annan had been awarded the Olympic Order in 2007, but due to his busy schedule, he was unable to attend an award ceremony until Thursday when he paid an official visit to the IOC headquarters here.


"The Olympic spirit is something that has been with me for a long time," Annan said during the presentation.


"Sport is a great education. Some of the things I learnt that took me through life http://www.camisetaseleccionmexicana.com/camiseta-paul-aguilar.html , through the Secretary-Generalship, I picked up in the sports field, where you learn to play in a team, where you learn to respect rules http://www.camisetaseleccionmexicana.com/camiseta-carlos-pena.html , where you learn not only to play in a team but to allow for individual brilliance."


Bach thanked Annan for his "many years of service to sport and for championing the unifying power of sport through the Kofi Annan Foundation," which seeks to mobilize political will to overcome threats to peace, development and human rights.


Annan was the seventh UN Secretary-General and served from 1997 to 2006 and attended many editions of the Olympic Games.


He was a staunch supporter of sport-related initiatives and projects, among others the proclamation of the International Year of Sport and Education in 2005 and the appointment of the first Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant heard the cheers on Tuesday in Philadelphia but it was the 76ers who gave the home fans a real reason to roar.


Robert Covington scored 23 points as the Sixers beat the Lakers 103-91 to win for the first time in 19 games this season http://www.camisetaseleccionmexicana.com/camiseta-jesus-duenas.html , and the first time in 29 games dating back to last season.


The victory came on the same night Bryant began his farewell tour in his hometown. The 37-year-old announced Sunday that this season, his 20th, would be his last.


Sixers coach Brett Brown said it was "a true privilege" to be on hand for such an occasion, but he was focused more on his team and its victory.


Another loss would have meant that the Sixers had the worst start in NBA history. As it is http://www.camisetaseleccionmexicana.com/camiseta-orbelin-pineda.html , they share that record with the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets.


Philadelphia also ended a 28-game losing streak, the longest in the history of the four major North American team sports.


"I'm pleased for the city," Brown said. "We don't want the streak continuing ... Obviously, this is a relief
