Re: Russia @ Bejing Olympics: News, Results, Discussions...

There are no WTA tournaments this week. In 2004, Myskina was playing in Sopot, and it rained. She had to leave before she played her SF to get to Athens. She missed the opening ceremony.
This is the 2nd Olympics that Maria is not playing, even though she is holding a major during Athens and Beijing

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Над Пекином развевается российский флаг
05.08.2008 19:38 | Радио "Маяк"



Над Пекином, точнее, над Олимпийской деревней сегодня поднялся российский флаг. Торжественная церемония состоялась на главной площади города.

Из китайской столицы передает специальный олимпийский корреспондент ВГТРК Вячеслав Духин.

ДУХИН: Всего 70 человек из всей большой российской сборной сегодня в Пекине. До церемонии открытия трое суток, и в Олимпийской деревне подняли российский флаг. На почетной трибуне знакомая форма, но не так уж много знакомых лиц, хотя первых медалей как раз ждут от них.

Всего в российской сборной 460 спортсменов. По этому показателю и по числу представленных видов спорта, естественно, одна из самых заметных команд, с амбицией войти как минимум в тройку лидеров в общекомандном зачете.

Но первые дни соревнований для нас, как говорят спортивные чиновники, не медалеемкие, поэтому надо как следует болеть и терпеливо ждать последней недели Игр.

Олимпийцы опасаются эпидемий
05.08.2008 22:18 | Твой день

Наслышанное о всевозможных вирусах, плохой воде и невозможном смоге в городе, руководство сборной решило не рисковать здоровьем и самочувствием спортсменов и тут же приняло необходимые меры.

Марлевые повязки и фильтры для воды планируется на всякий случай выдать каждому спортсмену.

Смог

Возможно, такие меры предосторожности и кажутся нелепыми, так как правительство Китая гарантировало комфортное пребывание олимпийцев в Пекине. Однако береженого Бог бережет. Тем более что с отдельными проблемами организаторы Игр действительно не могут справиться. Так, в понедельник в Пекине вновь наблюдался сильный смог, который резко уменьшал видимость в городе. Власти объявили, что виной тому повышенная влажность. Но, по некоторым данным, допустимый уровень загрязнения атмосферы был превышен больше чем в шесть раз.

Переживания

Впрочем, сами спортсмены не особенно переживают по этому поводу.

- Думаю, если правительство Китая обещает спортсменам полную безопасность от вирусов, землетрясений и тому подобных катаклизмов, оно знает что говорит, - отметил игрок сборной России по баскетболу Виктор Хряпа. - Наша задача тренироваться и выступать. Хотя, если честно, в глобальном смысле я побаиваюсь подобных опасностей для здоровья и жизни.

Re: Russia @ Bejing Olympics: News, Results, Discussions...

In general, Russia is doing pretty badly in the first days of these Games... Last Games they already had 2 or 3 golds in the first two days as far as I remember. Russia would be lucky to take 20 golds this time around.
