Birds Egg stadium already losing its shine

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. The paint is peeling and stains have appeared on its famous lattice design. Accelerating the deterioration of the iconic National Stadium is the absence of a permanent tenant. [...]

Paralympics gets under away

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 [...]

Mountain - Belgium's Filip Meirhaeghe and Norway's Gunn-Rita Dahle will be heavily favored to win individual medals. Canada has probably the best depth top-to-bottom in the women's field. The United States is sending only one woman's rider to Athens. Road - American men's side will be without Lance Armstrong, who declined an invitation. Track - France, Britain and Australia each won five medals at this year's world championships. And the Russian women, led by Olga Slyusareva and Svetlana Grankovskaya, figure to be strong; 2000 sprint gold winner Marty Nothstein is the lone returning medalist for the United States.

Cycling looks rather hard. Rather rather.

Cycling looks really hard. How come you don't fall off when you go on the track? Don't your legs get tired?
