Countdown to Beijing: Olympics 2008

One World One Dream

Games of the XXIX Olympiad
Summer Olympics 2008 will officially kick-off Friday, August 8th in Beijing, China.

The Games will take place August 8-24, 2008. The Games will play host to the 28 summer sports currently on the Olympic program. Approximately 10,500 athletes are expected to participate in the Games, with around 20,000 accredited media bringing the Games to the world.

For a complete listing of competition dates and times, please visit the Official Beijing Olympics website. Did you know handball was a competitive Olympic sport? I HAVE to broaden my horizons…

On the day of the opening ceremony, August 8, an estimated 160,000 people will be milling around the Olympic area. Of this number, 70,000 are VIPs, athletes, and performers, who will be transported via specifically designated vehicles to the Olympic central zone. The other 90,000 guests (ticket holders, workers and volunteers) will rely on the 28 direct bus routes specifically allotted for the purpose. In addition, Beijing’s subway lines will be open for longer hours to accommodate Olympic guests; on August 8, the subway system will be open all day and all night. Take advantage of public transportation…I guess you don’t really have a choice.

Game venues are spread throughout the city. So go ahead and print out the map below and navigate your way around the city!

Also, the Humane Society has guidelines for what to eat and what not to eat while in China. You’ll be happy to know that Dog Meat has removed from all menus during the weeks of the games.

As of July 27th ALL tickets for the Summer Games are SOLD OUT! So, if you are fortunate enough to be traveling to the games come back and give us a shout! Tell me. How was it…

  2. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

  3. Thanks a lot for the helpful write-up. It is also
    my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an really long latency period of time, which means that warning signs
    of the disease may well not emerge until 30 to 50 years
    after the 1st exposure to mesothelioma.
    Pleural mesothelioma, that is the most common kind and is affecting the
    area round the lungs, could potentially cause shortness of breath, chest
    muscles pains, along with a persistent cough, which may bring about
    coughing up our blood.

    presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand.

  13. Many phone carriers lock their phones to their

    that also offer many of the same features.

  26. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    However just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably be one
    of the most beneficial in its field. Awesome blog!
