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

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 [...]

Posted by: Issac's Daddy at August 31, 2004 10:21 PM

lets accept it guys, Filipino athletes are just taken for granted by our government officials. They might as well use the athletes' budget for their personal needs rather than giving the best for the trainings of these olympic potentials. Awayan ng awayan, wala namang nagagawa para sa bayan....hay.....

Posted by: haj at September 1, 2004 12:52 AM

The taekwando game was biased from the very beginning. Philippines was cheated by the referees and judges who were favoring other players and in that case, they're not fit for the jobs that they've handled. Even if we've been cheated in this tournament, let's not lose hope for our athletes and let's continue giving our support to strengthen their hearts and energize them in their tournaments.

TO THE UNFAIR JUDGES AND REFEREES: karmahin sana kayo sa pinaggagawa niyo.
