Can you get the picture the funding required to host each of these events is quite immense . And the host country has to route it to a sucessful season . Olyimpics have been taking place since the greeks . And the mordern stadiums are built in accordance to the ancient times. The same measurements are applied in a 400m race and a few other sports.

So This year Olympics where hosted by Beijing . It Started on the 9th Of August and ends On the 24th of August With a closing ceremony. I was really excited to see the pictures i wish i had seen it on T.V. I am handing down a really beautiful pics its just a site to behold.

The Chinese are doing considibaly well and as you can see the image their standings on the gold they won and in what feild or game the stood first. I think this year China will stand tall and proud on its olympics score and ratings . Don't judge by the Gold only United states is close behind in the competition . So buckle up people and keep yourself tuned to my blog .

You people wanna know why the Chinese are leading and rocking the charts well for a fact take a look at this picture i thing you will get an idea why they are winning soo much gold. The picture Shows the countries that took part in the Olympics and how many came from each country to represent themselves . So as we can see Chinese have around 600 competitor working for the Gold the odds are one of them is bound to win each competition . And Beijing being in china its like a walk in a park for them . Its like Chao " Oi Zing why don't you join the Olympics look there's the stadium all you have to do is jump around and you will get free publicity and if you win you get a Gold medal". ZinG " Oh sure i didn't have anything better to do so i think i can just hop in its only a few day period not even a month " .

Come On i mean like every host country tries their best to set a parimeter up and bombard them with every thing they got . I think this isn't fair Oh Well. If this countinues the host countries will just be counting Gold coins and Making a name for themselves . This year is going to be a sucess thanks to the Beijing host country every one is phyced out about the info and news . Although my blog isn't about any news related articles i maybe giving out official links here to the official website
