Tomorrow night's Opening Ceremony is expected to be filled with pomp, pageantry and circumstances under the direction of one of the world's most accomplished film directors, Zhang Yimou (known for Raise The Red Lantern and The House of Flying Daggers. Needless to say, it will be as nail biting as his kungfu thrillers. He will orchestrate the opening ceremony. According to reports, there will be more than 70,000 athletes will march in a parade of nations, more than 15,000 performers, as many as 35,000 fireworks shells and 80 to 90 heads of state including the President of the United States, George W. Bush, will fuel and follow the opening ceremony for the 2008 Olympics. The world, especially the U.S. will be watching (and learning)the most elaborate and politically complex opening ceremony ever. During a parade of nations, Greece will come out first and China will come out last.
In today's news, and according Yahoo Sports, China have been shunning the media spotlight, but their practice sessions have been far from modest before they embark on a mission to dominate the Olympic gymnastics competition on home soil. Hot favourites to add the men’s team title to their back-to-back world titles, China and their technically supreme world all-round champion Yang Wei impressed their rivals at a training session ahead of Saturday’s gymnastics opening day. Japan, in danger of surrendering their team crown to the Chinese, said the Olympic hosts were bordering on perfection.
Overall the Chinese had almost no mistakes. They will be tough to beat.
As for the U.S. team, without Paul and Morgan Hamm on the frontline, our chance is...well, zero. So let's move on to Michael Phelps and his hot teammates, sprinters Tyson Gay, Allyson Felix, and Dara Torres.
