PARIS Men's Nike Air Max 270 Trainers Red Black Sale , May 4 (Xinhua) -- Voting intentions have remained stable for the two contenders standing for the French presidency in a decisive second round of elections on May 7, according to surveys conducted by French pollsters.

The latest poll released on Thursday by the French Institute of Public Opinion (Ifop) shows that 61 percent of votes will go to centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron, and 40 percent to far-rightist Marine Le Pen, consistent with the poll conducted on April 24 Men's Nike Air Max 270 Midnight Navy Black White Sale , the day after the first round of the presidential election, which indicated 60 and 40 percent for Macron and Le Pen, respectively.

Another pollster, OpinionWay-SLPV Women's Nike Air Max 270 Trainers Purple White Sale , released a poll with identical figures on Thursday. It also estimates that if elected, Macron's new party En Marche (On the Move) will win between 249 to 286 seats, a stunning majority, in the parliamentary elections in June.

The two candidates held an intense and aggressive debate on television Wednesday evening. A poll conducted by research firm Elabe showed that 63 percent of the viewers considered Macron more convincing Nike Air Max 270 Trainers Women's Pink White Sale , while Le Pen won the support of 34 percent.

All the major polls indicate that it is seemingly unlikely for Le Pen to reverse the trajectory of the presidential race in the coming days.

"This trend was already similar before the first round and is maintained according to the latest opinion polls we have carried out," said Jerome Fourquet, director of Ifop's department of opinion and business strategy at a press conference on Wednesday.

The Ifop poll also indicates that more supporters of the other two frontrunners, conservative Francois Fillon and far-leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon Women's Nike Air Max 270 Trainers Pink Grey Sale , will cast their votes for Macron in the second round.

Fifty percent of Melenchon supporters say they will vote for Macron, a figure that has remained stable since April 24, and 13 percent say they will vote for Le Pen, down from 19 percent on April 24 Men's Nike Air Max 270 Camo Heel Sale , while 37 percent will not vote or cast a blank vote, the latest survey indicates.

Meanwhile, 44 percent of Fillon supporters will vote for Macron, 30 percent for Le Pen and 26 percent will abstain from voting Nike Air Max 270 Women's Coral Stardust Sale , it says.

Among Melenchon supporters, those under 35 are especially mobilized to vote for Macron, which is a big advantage for the 39-year-old centrist candidate, according to the poll.

  CANBERRA, April 12 (Xinhua) -- Australian swimmer Cameron McEvoy has swum the third-fastest 100 meters freestyle time in history overnight, on his way to qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

  At the Australian Olympic qualifiers in Adelaide, McEvoy, 21, blitzed the field to swim a new Australian record of 47.04 seconds -- and the fastest ever 100 meters swum outside of the "super suit" era of 2008-09.

  The super suits were banned from competition in January 2010 after world records went tumbling at the 2008 Olympics and 2009 World Championships; their polyurethane make-up was found to markedly improve performance as they were impermeable and aided buoyancy.

  McEvoy finished just under a second ahead of second-placed Kyle Chalmers, 17, who also qualifies for the team, while James Roberts finished third and will also make the trip to Rio. James Magnussen finished fourth, meaning he will round out Australia's 4x100 meters team for the meet but will not compete in the standalone 100 meters event.

  After the swim, McEvoy said Cesar Cielo Filho's world record of 46.91 (set in a super suit in 2009) was well within reach.

  "It felt no different to any other race. If I had known I was that close there might have been something in me that could have pushed me a bit further," McEvoy said post-race overnight.

  "It's unbelievable... It makes me know that me and (coach) Richard Scarce are doing the right thing. It puts me in a good position going to Rio."

  McEvoy said it would be important not to get ahead of himself before the Olympics, and that the mental battle would be just as difficult as the physical one - particularly now as he has announced himself to the world stage.

  "The Olympics is notorious for not always producing the best time to win it and that's just because the mental game, being able to step up on the day, is levels above anywhere else. I'm very much aware of that," he said.

  "And I'm very much aware that everyone else in the world will be watching this race and firing them up to get back into training at 5am the next morning to try and beat me.

  "While it's good, I can't sit back and relax and think it's going to come without anymore effort in Rio."

  The Rio Olympic Games begin in Brazil in August.

NAIROBI, March 12 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan youngster Andrew Lorot is out to sign off his junior running career with the gold medal when he competes for his nation at Saturday' s 4th CAA Africa Cross Country Championships in Yaounde, Cameroon.

Lorot, 19 Men's Nike Air Max 270 Triple Black Sale , won silver the last time out when the 2014 edition was held in Kampala, Uganda and was part of the Kenyan contingent of 24 runners and nine officials who left for Cameroon on Wednesday to defend the overall title they have held since the continental showpiece was launched in 2011.

"This time I have no problem, I' m so strong than when I was going to Uganda. Remember that time we trained in Ngong (Nairobi), but this time Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit Bold Men's Tiger Sale , the conditions here in Kigari (Embu County) are different, I won silver last time and now I' m praying God to help me win the gold,".
