Topic: Bicycle kick

  Bicycle kick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bicycle kick or overhead kick, also known as the Chilena or Chalaca in most of Latin America, is an expert move in football, that is made by throwing the body up into the air with the legs moving as if pedaling a bicycle.
When the player is desperate to remove the ball from the area near his defending goal, but he has his back from the way he wants to go, and the ball is bouncing around and thus difficult to control.
Additionally, Aston Villa Chairman Doug Ellis claimed in his autobiography that he was the inventor of the kick.

 SI.com - SI On Campus - Men's Soccer: Jason Garey - Tuesday December 13, 2005 2:21PM
So maybe Jason Garey's bicycle kick against Indiana in October wasn't an exact replica of the one in the movie, but it was pretty awesome nonetheless and a fitting moment for Maryland's most prolific goal-scorer.
In that moment, Garey's instinct kicked in, "I wasn't trying to do a bicycle kick, it was just the best way to make a play on the ball," said Garey, who beat a stunned Indiana goalie.
While the bicycle kick was certainly one of the defining moments of this Lousiana boy's year, the real highlight was leading Maryland to its first men's soccer national championship last Sunday.

 Bike Cult Book: Online Resource: Naming the Bicycle
The word "bicycle" appeared on an 1869 British velocipede patent by J.I. Stassen and in a few years the name was commonly applied to high-wheelers.
The bicycle's root-word is cycle, with cycling, cyclism (practice of the cyclist), cycler, cycleman (one who cycles), cycledom (the world of cycles and cyclists), and cyclometer (cycle odometer).
The authorities, however, produced "rijwiel," "schrijwiel," "trapwiel," "wielpeerd" and finally "fiets," which in Holland at least proved to be the "living word." The English went about the task in their customary rational manner and came up with "bicycle," "wheel," or simply "cycle," which became the real name, the true name.
