Support your favorite teams, country and athletes at the Beijing Olympics

Share in the excitement and fun of the Olympics by writing a blog right here on your favorite Olympic team, country or athlete.

We are not looking for professional writers, just people who are passionate about sports and the Olympics. Rather than just sitting back and watching events on television, you can write what you think about an event or athlete. Tell the world your favorite athlete or team’s story; their grueling training schedules, successes and disappointments.

Also if you are visiting China for the Olympics, we would love to hear from you. China is an interesting place to travel to and would love to hear what other people think about Beijing, Chinese culture, food and the people.

If you are interested in writing for us, please contact us telling us a little bit about your background and what you would like to write about.

You know, I’m always excited about the Olympics, but this year seems turbulent so it feels very awkward. For such a “progressive” country, China seems like its going through an American style late-1800s Industrial Revolution. Living and working conditions are are just rotten for people and it’s all about production. I think this was the WRONG time for Bush to make the comments–as usual, he doesn’t think things through, but these games are shaping up to be ….interresting.

the usoc is very corrupt.they claim to have the olympic spirit but instead they are capitalisim personified they should infact win the gold for greed.

I just do not understand why there are so many American people dislike Chinese people, from the bottom of their hearts.

this gymnastics scoring is bs the U.S. has been robbed twice in two days lets see tomorrow if the chinese can cheat another one alicia and nastia were both robbed

China and the gymnastics judges should apologize to the world. You are shameful.
Completely disgusting judging.
China needs to find legal age contestants. It doesnt take a forensics examiner to tell an 11 year old girl from a 16 yr old.
You have angered the whole world. Again.
I NEVER would have allowed China to bid for the Olympics. I believe in the Chinese people, as I do most people, but I also know the highest fruit ages faster and falls harder.
The leaders have proven they did not deserve this honor.
These games are too important for world morale to have a failure like this. This is beyond controversial and beyond explainable. I also believe it is beyond forgivable.
China deserves credit for other successes here with these games, but has shamed itself worse than doping or gender scandals.

Well I’m thrilled to be a member of the Irish Olympic team and here we are in Athens waiting for the games to begin. Mind you, nobody here seems to be overly excited and it appears we are the first athletes to arrive. Mind you I’ve come across a real gem of a find, in a little secondhand shop close to our motel; an Olympic flag with a misprint (probably why its in a secondhand shop) that says Athens 2004. Reckon that’ll be worth something one day. Anyway can’t hang around, off to training, we are determined to win the tug-of war (our manager reckons the English have been tug-of-war gold medalists since 1904) time to end their run.

I’m sick of hearing all these whingers complain about how bad the judging was and that the U.S was robbed of gold medals in the gymnastics and China is cheating. A system has been put in place and it wouldn’t have been put in place if it wasn’t as fair and credible as possible. It seems that the one time the U.S isn’t leading the medal tally they all of a sudden have been robbed and have been treated unfairly. Get over it! China are a super team and have worked their asses off to put on a good show for their home country. Learn that you can’t win everything and be grateful for the huge success you have already had. There are far more worse things than can happen in life. As far as I’m concerned the judges did their job, and chose a worthy winner. And to “objective backrow observer”, there is nothing to apologize for. If anything the U.S coaches and competitors should apologize for their poor sportsmanship, which has made gymnastics such a sour sport. That is what is truly shameful.

Another completely mystifying error in design is the stupid elimination rounds in track.
In high jump the goal is how high.
In weight lifting the goal is how heavy.
In discus and javelin it is how far.
In track it should be how fast.
Not who won in elimination events.
Get the fastest and strongest to the final round or you have robbed third and fourth place of their awards.
Period. End of subject.
There will be no further discussion.
Next.

Ad - August 21, 2008 @ 5:41 pm

once again i am reading about more ignorance towards the rules and objectives of sport
track events have elimination rounds because it also comes down to the runners mental abilities and how they cope with pressure
runners need to adapt to different situations, and if they have a risk of missing a spot in the final they need to pick up the pace, if not they need to reserve as much as they can for the final
running is about more than physical ability, as with all other sports it also comes down to the mental ability of the athlete, and lets face it, if the athlete is not fast enough to finish in the top 3(or be one of the two other runners that qualify fast enough) what is the likelihood of that runner achieving a medal?
Once again it is the rule of the sport and it is set out that way for a reason - To prove the true ability of the athlete
if you can’t handle or adapt to those rules, find another sport.

Why bicker whether # of medals count or only Gold medals count? Use 3 points for Gold, 2 for Silver and 1 for Bronze. The tally today gives 200 points to China & 200 Points to the USA. Let us see what the final count is and decide who has won
