Beijing Olympics 2008: 28 days to go.........

Today I was just leaving my room for office at early morning (have morning shift today) , I just turned the daily news paper DNA( we just did annual subscription since last week only). My eyes fell into the big font banner in Sports section in last page.” 30 days to go: Beijing Olympics 2008.As I was getting late for cab, I left the paper planning to check in Google at office.

I often get excited with sports event and have keen interest to maintain statistics of events. I do have the self maintained complete statistics of world cup football since 1998-2002-2006.As usual, this Olympics also fascinates me.

No sooner I reached office, I opened the official site of Olympics 2008. I saw it is 29 days 5 hours 32 minutes to go. And count down gradually decreasing. Olympics is great Mega extravaganza in Sport and ultimate dream of every sport-person. It is such a great event which brings all the nations in one arena. The flag with five different colored circles entailed together not only resembles the five different continents under one flag but also spreads the message of unification of all man kind around the globe.

Beijing Olympics 2008 is being held in Republic in Beijing, People's Republic of China from August 8 to August 24, 2008, and 10,500 athletes from 217 countries are expected to compete in 302 (165 men's events, 127 women's events and 10 mixed events) in 28 sports.
