    i think china will do really really well in terms of medal and the whole olympics

    i doubt the u.s. will boycott an event, the last thing they want to do right now is create tension with china

    i actually think that there will be booing of the japanese team, and not chinese taipei. china wants taiwan to be part of china, so they probably won't boo them as much. but china and japan has had a history of hatred and i doubt that's gonna die away soon. espeically for gymnastics, since the japanese won that this year....i hope we get revenge and get the gold back!!! lol

    but yeah definitely , i think china will host one of the greatest olympics ever, because in four years, china should be even better than it is now, and plus, every olympics has these little problems, no country is ever perfect so it's not like having little problems will make it bad....gooooooooo china!

    Well, 2008 Olympics in China succesful or not can be judge by 2 aspect, I think.
    First, how good China host the game and how they overcome the problem?Second, how many medals will China team win this time?

    If China do well in this 2 aspect, this mean 2008 Olympic in China will be Double Succes. I'm sure china will do well

    In my opinion, the host country always does a whole lot better. China has already competed so well in the 2004 olympics, they'll only get better in the 2008's.

    I also think they'll do a lot better than Greece at hosting the games. China has already organised most things, while Greece sounded like they did everything at the last minute.

    The monkey king is going to be the mascot!

    Mascot
    In 2003, the National Society of Chinese Classic Literature Studies in Beijing announced a global search for images of Sun Wukong popularly known as the "Monkey King" to become the mascot of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Scholars from the National Society of Chinese Classic Literature Studies argued the symbolism of adopting the Monkey King as mascot since the fairy tale character embodies the Olympic motto of "Higher, faster and stronger."
