Turkey's Supreme Military Council (YAS) will meet on Thursday, July 28, private broadcaster NTV quoted President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday as saying, following a failed coup staged by a faction within the armed forces. Erdogan told Reuters in an interview on Thursday that he planned to restructure Turkey's armed forces and bring in "fresh blood" after the abortive coup, in which at least 246 people were killed. The YAS meeting, which takes place every August but has been brought forward by a few days this year due to the abortive coup, will be held in the presidential palace, not as is customary at the headquarters of the military General Staff, NTV quoted Erdogan as saying.

Jamaica's Usain Bolt creates his 'Lightening Bolt' pose as he celebrates winning the men's 200m in Stratford on July 22, 2016In the decades since Ethiopian Abebe Bikila (Olympic gold, marathon: 1960) and South Africa's Zola Budd (5,000-metre world record: 1985) raced barefoot into sporting history, debate has raged over the wisdom of runners spurning shoes. In a recent study published in the Journal of Sport and Health Science, Spanish scientists asserted that barefoot running can "considerably" decrease the risk of being hurt.
