BEIJING OLYMPICS COUNTDOWN.
BEIJING OLYMPICS COUNTDOWN starts today for the BBC Freesat Beijing Olympics coverage from Friday 8th of August 2008 until Sunday 24th of August.
The seven hour time difference from GMT means while we sleep another session of sporting competition will be in full swing.
It would be wrong to mention the Beijing Olympics without mentioning the awful hardship being faced by many after the Earthquake and like all nations our hearts go out to the people of China at this time.
The Olympics are one way of nations coming together for understanding and friendship and many new stars are born at these world class events. Who could forget Mark Spitz winning 7 gold medals in the 1972 Olympics.
The countdown to the Beijing Olympics starts today marking 70 days or ten weeks tomorrow is the opening ceremony.
We have our front seat booked with our Freesat boxes set for BBC HD, roll on the 8'th August 2008. DO YOU ?
