Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies

The Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies is the 10th biggest think tank worldwide and the official think tank of the European People's Party.

The president of the Martens Centre is former Slovak prime minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, who succeeded the centre's founder Wilfried Martens in 2013; the Martens Centre was founded in 2007 as a result of the revision of the EU Regulation that after 2007 allowed the creation of European foundations and think tanks affiliated to the European parties. The European People's Party established the Centre for European Studies. During the EPP Congress in Dublin on 6 and 7 March 2014, the think tank was renamed in honour of its founder Wilfried Martens.

Bahrain at the Olympics

Bahrain has competed in 9 Summer Olympic Games. They have never competed in the Winter Olympic Games. All the Bahraini Olympic medals were won by naturalized African long distance runners; the country's first podium was a bronze in the women's 1500 meters run, by the former Ethiopian Maryam Yusuf Jamal in the 2012 London Summer Olympics. IOC reallocated the medals in Women's 1500 m event due to the disqualification of the gold and silver medallists Aslı Çakır Alptekin and Gamze Bulut, bronze medalist Maryam Yusuf Jamal advanced to the gold. Four years in the 2016 Rio Olympics, two Kenyan women got Bahrain's first gold and silver medals, Ruth Jebet in the 3000m steeplechase and Eunice Kirwa in the marathon. At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, the former Moroccan Rashid Ramzi was awarded the gold medal in athletics in men's 1,500 meters but it was stripped due to a doping violation.
