To Igor Ter Ovanesyan, not quite twenty two, who had made the Soviet team in the broad jump for the second straight Olympics, competing against athletes from the United States remained an intimidating prospect. Igor was the Soviet version of a gym rat, a lifelong product of the state run athletic system. His father, an Armenian born discus thrower, and his mother, a Ukrainian volleyball player, had met at the Kiev State Institute of Physical Education, and both taught there while he was growing up.

The officer starts to open the car door, but DuBose pulls the door closed and moves his hand toward the car’s ignition. Tensing then reaches inside the car as it starts to move.
The process of smoking initiationIt usually takes time for an individual to become a smoker, allowing for several opportunities for tobacco control interventions that can either focus on the prevention of experimentation or progression to higher smoking levels. There are identifiable cognitions (curiosity, weakening of intention not to smoke) that predict future smoking, whether it be first experimentation or progression to a higher level of smoking experience (eg, puffer, experimenter, to occasional and then regular smoker, etc).12 13 In high income countries such as the USA, there is good evidence that experimentation generally occurs between the ages of 10 24years.14 While some cultures have reported smoking at an earlier age, there is little evidence to suggest an uptake pattern in which never smokers start the initiation process after the age of 24years. Early experimentation and use is nearly always undertaken in a social context, which emphasises the importance of interventions focused on denormalising smoking.
I imagine civil rights proceeding along the lines of Tuskegee airmen type scenarios and the needs of the military. Also the little we know of prewar conflict it appears that anti Chinese sentiment was somewhat rampant, hatred of the Chinese may have overridden other racial biases.
