Beijing 2008: Official Magazine of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games
issue 10 | exe | 106 pages | English
The 2008 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, were awarded to Beijing, China after an exhaustive ballot of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on July 13, 2001. The games will be celebrated from August 8, 2008 to August 24, 2008, with the opening ceremony commencing at 08:08pm and 08 seconds.
Some events, including football (soccer), sailing, and new 10 km swimming marathon events will be held in other cities of China. With the equestrian events being held in Hong Kong, this marks the second time the same edition of the Olympic Games has been hosted by two National Olympic Committees (NOCs).
The official logo of the games, titled "Dancing Beijing," features a stylized calligraphic character jng (, meaning capital), referencing the host city. The mascots of Beijing 2008 are the five Fuwa (formerly known as the "friendlies"), each representing one color of the Olympic rings. The motto of the Games is "One World, One Dream." The games will consist of 302 events in 28 sports, just one event more than the Athens games of 2004. In addition to new events, several new NOCs that may compete at the games have been recognized by the IOC.
