Hopefully we will find Babubhai again among us. Did France (Football) qualify for Beijing?

Pariticipation and gaining experience is real deal of these Olympics.

Who do you think will win it? China certainly would be favorites as a host. US, Germany will contend. So will Russia.

Phelps will try to create history. What a swimmer.

Track and field: All are juiced. :)
Except for the long distance runners.

Will south Asia win any medals? Even in shooting? Why not have Chess? May be Anand can win one. Carrom and Mendis can represent SL. I see no hope on Hockey.

I think the players have to take oath in writings and deposit security money in order to qualify for olympics ( or other big tournaments) bound teams.

Atleast, thats what they were doing last time i read few years back.

_____________________________
Attack in China Kills 16 Border Patrol Officers

BEIJING — Two men armed with knives and grenades ambushed a military police unit in Kashgar in China’s majority Muslim far northwest on Monday, killing 16 border patrol officers and wounding 16 others before being subdued and arrested, according to Chinese state media.

With just four days until the start of the Olympic Games in Beijing, the attack highlighted the vulnerabilities faced by the Chinese authorities as they seek to secure the capital for the hundreds of thousands of foreign athletes, journalists and visitors who have already begun arriving here.

I totally agree. Without injection there is no chance for any sprinters. Except Tyson Gay, I don't have faith in any other US sprinters on being honest and drug free. Unlucky that he wouldn't run the 200 (pulled a muscle in the preliminaries and was out).

China is the worst violator of human rights. Just ask 1) Chinese workers earning slave wages, 2) the millions of farmers being displaced off their land so that the CPC and PLA elite and their chamchas can build pleasure condos, casinos and whorehouses, 3) any one of their ethnic and religious minorites, and 4) all those who want to speak out against oppression and arrogance of a government pissing on the working people it claims to represent.

What if this was before 1971, China was Pakistan, and we were the Tibetans or Chinese Muslims?

Their cavalier disregard for the enviornment and fundamental ethical standards impact the whole planet.

Some are satisfied with the circus, others are not.

And yet the world champion of Human rights have killed far more innocent people in the past 5 years than evil China......

China oppresses its citizens, the US oppresses citizens of other countries, thats the only difference.............

Looking past the human rights violations and all the opressions, I think Beijing did an amazing job with the opening ceremony. I think they are claming it to be most expensive opening ceremony ever

1. "Champion of Human Rights"? I doubt that Andorra or Finland killed more innocent people, or violated other Human Rights than China.

2. Check the facts and do find out what is meant by Human Rights, not just "killing", before embarrassing all of us with similar drivel.

3. Two wrongs don't make a right. Criminal US actions in no way mitigate criminal Chinese actions, do they? Or is it OK for person A to do something wrong just because person B is doing it. F-A-L-L-A-CY. Look it up.

4. Human Rights and the spirit of the Olympics are not mutually exclusive concepts. Both are rooted in basic humanism. I understand that the Olympics are a great source of pride for the Chinese people. I just hope that the games also become a catalyst for positive change, so that we may see a democratic China where its people are duly represented by an accountable body, rather than the corrupt CPC and PLA elite who exploit them.

Seeing our flag fly high is always good. I just hope the Bangladeshi government and its private sector partners will eventually support our future Olympians meaningfully enough to actually win something. It would be incredible to see one of our own with a gold medal and singing the anthem in our lifetime.

It was deeply moving for me to see the Iraqi team and Team Darfur, and obviously the USA also.

The opening ceremony was simply amazing.
All the hype, all the negative publicity was over shodawed, and rightly so.

How about we limit ourselves to only Olympics in this thread and celebrate the Biggest Show on Earth?

If anyone must talk politics, human rights and the whole world in between, pls feel free to open a thread on the 'Forget Cricket" section. Im sure we'd all happily contribute.

Olympics should be all about celebrating the Humanity.

Yep. I remember his red drugged eyes. What an explosive race he had against Carl lewis in the 100m. Doesn't matter though. He was a doper.

One thing to ponder is the demise of Germany, particularly the East before and until '88, where they alone were always at the top of the medal counts. They were, the East Germans, probably the worst abusers of performance enhanced drugs. Their medal counts showed. Unified Germany is no way near the power that East was alone once. For the better though.

Yes, you are absolutely right. Aussies are a traditional swimming powerhouse beside the US. Infact, it was Thorpedo who spearheaded the Aussie gold rush last couple of games.

Phelp's dominance is unprecedented and unparalled. He is taking himself to a new height, and i also dont think his records will be broken anytime soon.

Korea is surprising cuz we dont really think of them when it comes to Olympic top medal contendars. Good to see another Asian team coming up. It goes to show the positive impact they could imply since the Seoul'88.
With world class facilities, they have come along a long way and the dividend is paying off.

Nah. 8 golds this olympics would take him to 14 golds.
6 more at next world cup at the age of 27?
that would be too much to ask for.
His body would go through some serious battering over this period and i dont think his aging(!!) body can take it.

Plus given that he is in pinnacle of his success combined with prime of his physique, chances are very high he would lose this interest and determination come 4 years time.

Just look at Thorpedo.

Even if he does retain the enthusiam, 8 events is too gruelling a schedule to maintain.

Was listening on the tele (CNN/BBC, not sure) the other day that the Jamaican sprinters have complained that too much blood, as samples, has been taken from them. It was also taken more than few times.

Now they are worried that this loss of blood, which could take days to recover to get them to supreme fitness, could effect thier performance in the track and field, compared to their US counterparts.

Okay before 1990, in any type of events like Olympics, commonwealth games that I followed team A with 1 gold, 0 silver, 0 bronge, was always higher than 0 gold, 2 silvers, 0 bronge.

I asked our 62 year old secretary (who is very knowledgable), and she said she didn't get it as well. I think US Media outlets found out that they can't cheat their way to the highest golds any more. Hence sending one of the biggest contingents they want to see the US name up there on the list. lol, so funny.

Breakfast:

— one five-egg omelets
— a bowl of grits
— three slices of French toast with powdered sugar
— three chocolate chip pancakes
— two cups of coffee

For lunch, Phelps drinks 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks, one pound of pasta with tomato sauce and two large ham and cheese sandwiches (with mayo) on white bread.

For dinner, Phelps’ meal consists of six to eight slices of pizza, another pound of pasta with tomato sauce, and 1,000 calories of energy drinks.

I looked up the team for Bangladesh, and there are only five people in the competition representing Bangladesh! Why so little numbers??? I saw Abu Abdullah play in the 100m run, and he came last place! at least I saw some1 play. Bangladesh is country with high skilled swimmers isn't it? or runners? there should be a lot of people in the Swimming and Athletics. A country with 150 million people it is just weird, does anyone have an answer to why this is?

Since he was about to become the fastest WI bowler and then his coach pushed him towards sprints, his hand-eye co-ordination should be fine. Raiders can pay him millions just as a project. Signing bonus of 10 mill is nothing.

Russell, D Mac, and the freak. what an offensive combo. He can be de-coy in every play as well.

And we thought D mac was fast at 4.29, lol.

Now, lets see how it all will come to an End.

The closing ceremony begins.
