Only six months has passed since the Beijing Olympics and the Birds Nest stadium which hosted the spectacular opening and closing ceremonies is already beginning to lose its shine.

Paralympics gets under away

The opening ceremony for the Paralympics was held last night in Beijing. The ceremony was spectacular but perhaps not on the scale of the ceremony for the Beijing Olympics. Most of the show was performed by people with disabilities, including Li Yue, who lost her left leg in the Sichuan earthquake and performed [...]

Beijing ticket scammers getting ready for London

The ticket scammers who defrauded people by selling non-existent tickets through the internet are getting ready for the Vancouver and London Olympics. “I was shocked by the brilliance and hard work of the thieves fleecing the Olympic family — and they are setting up to do the same thing in Vancouver in 2010 and London in [...]

Beijing’s answer to pollution - cloud seeding

Beijing did a lot to improve the air quality leading up to the Beijing Olympics, with mixed results. The days before the opening ceremony were pretty bad, but a burst of rain cleared the air and pollution became less of a talking point. Almost straight after the closing ceremony the hazy skies returned. A [...]

Closing ceremony - what did you think?

The fireworks are still going on over Beijing tonight as the Olympics comes to a close. The closing ceremony wasnt as long as the first one and not as spectacular, but still very well done. We had a short section to mark the handover of the Olympics from Beijing to London. Londons mayor [...]

Athens Olympic Basketball


Basketball at the Athens Olympics will be held over 11 days from the 14th - 24th August. It will be held in two venues - beginning in the Indoor Stadium for preliminary games and then moving to the Olympic Indoor Hall for finals.

In the women's basketball competition pressure will come from Australia and Brazil whilst in men's competition it is likely to come from teams including Lithuania, France, Russia, China and Yugoslavia.

We will publish Gold, Silver and Bronze medal results in both Men's and Women's Basketball events at Men's Basketball Medals and Results and Women's Basketball Medals and Results as they come to hand. In the mean time get the latest Olympic Basketball News in our Basketball News Archives

Man! Watsup with China, Japan, and Korea losing women basketball to the other country all the times?????? What's sup with that??? I was hoping us Asian girls would show off skill in the Olympics, but they end up losing all the matches (Well, I think Japan won one time). tsk tsk tsk...dissapointing. I was depending on them.
