I have not seen the live opening ceremony last 08/08/08 as I was busy with some other works back in the Philippines. Good thing though we have Youtube and the untiring people who love to post the videos, thanks to them, I was able to watch the ceremony.

As to this writing, the medal counts reveal the host country China leads the Gold medal tally with 22 followed by United States of America with 13, then Germany with 8 and Australia with 5 Golds. I bet you USA will catch up with the medal standing as the swimmer Michael Phelps continue on to bag his 6th gold medals in the pool.

That is the beauty of Olympic Sports, gathering all peoples into one through the language of sports. One World One Dream indeed. The Bird’s Nest Stadium is attention catcher, I love the design. What is striking to me is the disabled athletes, for they are proving to the world that anything is possible.
