China’s Olympics

Having lived in China, I’ve attempted to pay additional attention to these Games.  Having been away from home for about 12 of the past 14 days, I haven’t succeeded.

But what would shock my Chinese friends particularly is the fact that the Olympics don’t fascinate me all that much.  I enjoy watching a few events particularly, most I can do without, and I DO enjoy being aware of some of the more intriguing story-lines of the games, such as Phelps, Bolt, and the BIG guys who don’t win alongside the LITTLE guys who do.

On another angle of the games, Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel has an interesting article on China’s emergence as an Olympic powerhouse.  It gives a bit of a peek into the games behind the Games.

Have at it… if you care!
