Congratulate China for organizing Olympic!!!! In fact I am quite impressed that China government can order and the ppl, factory, construction followed instruction to stop work, cut down emission, reduce work for Olympic!:bigeyes:

Can other so called "Super Power", "Environment Care" countries do so when there is such event? :think:

I would like to formally request that brothers here kindly refrain from too much OT as I hope this thread will serve as a Index for members who may not have too much time to read or search for the Olympics news and that they can come to this thread for a shortcut to the news that are of interest to them ... thanks:angel:

There is never a certainty in winning a medal in the Olympics because each individual's motivation and determination, physical preparation and mental discipline is unpredictable, and of course Lady's Luck is important. Hope that we can win a Silver this time!

First gold in Beijing goes to Katerina Emmons of the Czech public in the women's 10m air rifle competition.
It's a disappointing result for home fans though as China's defending champion Du Li, (Athens' Gold winner, who is much expected to get the first Gold here).

Gold - Katerina Emmons (Olympic Record, equalled World Record - 503.5)
Silver - Russian Lioubov Galkina
Bronze - Croatia's Snjezana Pejcic
