Q1: The 2012 Summer Olympics will be held in London, have you any ideas what it will be like? What are your expectations of the London Olympics?
I once visited London. I like its artistic style. I hope in 2012 the London Games can stress its artistic attribute, differing from Beijing´s cultural style. I know it´s difficult as China has already set the bar very high this time. Congratulations China! London Go! -- Tim, US
Q2: What impressed you most during the Beijing Olympic Games? A person, a moment, an athlete, or anything else unforgettable?
I am a Chinese in Mali, Africa. My boyfriend works here. Everyday during the Beijing Games his colleges sit with us in front of the TV, watching the Games. As few events attended by Chinese athletes are transmitted here, once we find one Chinese face on the TV, we are yelling and cheering excitedly. We are proud of being Chinese. Maybe our athletes will never know there are still a small group of people in Africa, far away from our country, always cheering for them. I don´t know what would they say if they know it. Anyway, good luck for all Chinese athletes, good luck for our country. -- Momo, Africa
During the 17-day Olympic Gmaes held in beijing, it appeared so many impressive moment, the althetes runing for the glory, workers all doing well to make sure that everything is under control. For me I think the most impressive moment is all volenteers helping with their warm hearts to all the oversea friends, and also when every match begins, there is still someone lying on the land or jumping, or running. Who are they? They are camera makers or hosts. They have to make sure every Chinese can watch and feel the same thing as the same as the people being there. They shot this and transformed to the station. Also hosts of all the program impressed us too, they worked from early morning till late afternoon, they brought us the lastest new from the match. Thank you all the volenteers, you are awesome and impressive. -- Elizabeth.ying, China
