I am a big sport fan and like to watch all kind of sports. Of course, I am not going to miss Olympic game. I hope one day I am able to watch one of Olympic games in person. Opening Ceremony is one of Olympic events you can't miss because it shows creativity, culture and history of host country. If you want to understand Chinese culture and history, Beijing 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony will be a good introduction except that avoidable China's national anthem and flag.
If my memory is right, the way they lit Olympic Flame in ATHENS 2004 is the most impressive way I have ever seen. One handicapped archer shot an arrow to light the Olympic Flame.
The most impressive part of Beijing 2008 Olympic Opening Ceremony is that painting was painted by contemporary dancers and children and what that painting present which is we need to pay attention on our environment("One world, One dream" is the slogan of Beijing 2008 Olympic game).
As you guys know, there is big political issue between Taiwan and China. Two governments fight for everything involve in this issue. For example, my Taiwanese national team is not allowed to use "Taiwan" and our real national flag.
This leads to my interesting note I note during this opening ceremony. Recent years, tons of Taiwanese businessmen and corporations go to China and try to open China market. When my Taiwanese national team entered stadium and was introduced, we probably got the loudest cheers from stadium audiences except host country, China.
Ha! China Government try so hard to block us from everything, but they can't stop Taiwanese attend Olympic game and cheer for their country and they can't stop Australian announcer introduced us "Taiwan" during broadcasting.
Don't worry. I am not going to talk about politics too much on my blog.
