The Olympic games has been sponsored to Beijing this time after an exhaustive election of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 13th of July, 2001 (7 year before the event). The mascots of Beijing 2008 are the five Fuwa, each representing both a color of the Olympic rings and a symbol of Chinese culture. The official theme of the event is titled as "Dancing Beijing," featuring a stylized calligraphic character referencing the Beijing city. The Olympic slogan for this Olympic would be One World and One Dream, send the message to the world to unite in the Olympic spirit.
The Government of China has promoted the games to highlight China's emergence on the world stage and has invested heavily in new facilities and transportation systems. A total of 37 venues will be used this time to host the events including 12 newly constructed venues. Last year, former IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch had informed that he believes that the Beijing Olympic Games will be "the best in Olympic history," and despite the controversies that have marred the image of the Chinese Olympics, current president Jacques Rogge asserts that the IOC has "absolutely no regrets" in choosing Beijing to host the 2008 games.
Here is the medals that will be awarded to the winners of Beijing Olympics 2008:
The Terrorist group was suspected to have collaborated with the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), a group the United Nations already labeled a terrorist organization in the year 2002. Those terrorists, saboteurs and secessionists are to be battered resolutely, no matter what ethnic group are from.The Olympic Games slated for this August is a huge event, but there are always a few people who like to conspire sabotages.
Security is tightened all parts of China and each thing has to suspected as already China faced a terrorist attack before Olympic. I (Varun) believe that it would be a great achievement for all Chinese organizations who are involved in this mega event. Not only in this time, there are several times Olympic has been suffered from Terrorism but still the enthusiastic of Olympic has never gone down. Players too from all over the world supported to fight against the terrorism.
The Beijing Olympics 2008 set off to an amazing ceremony on 08/08/2008 at 8:08 pm Local Time. And were we treated to a visual treat…. The dancers.. the revelry… and finally the “fantabulous fireworks” display… China sure put up an amazing spectacle and the back-set for the Olympics. I would have loved to have been in the Bird’s Nest stadium with the more than 91,000 people in the audience, plus at least 10,000 athletes, excluding the huge numbers of people (20,000) involved as performers and other staff, as the atmosphere would have been absolutely electrified!

- Abhinab Bindra proved himself to an early bird and, at 15, was the youngest participant at the 1998 Commonwealth Games. Bindra shot into limelight by winning a bronze in the Munich World Cup in 2001 with a new junior world record score of 597/600.
- In the 2004 Athens Olympics, despite breaking the Olympic record Bindra failed to clinch a medal. But on July 24, 2006, Bindra became the first Indian shooter to win a World Championship gold in Zagreb. Karni Singh's silver in 1962 was the previous best by an Indian in a World Championship meet.
