Facts About China
The population of China in July 2007 is
1,321,518,888 and is still got a growing in
population. The language spoken in China is
Chinese and English. The capital city in China is
Beijing and Beijing is also holding the 2008
Olympics. China is the fourth largest country in
the world. China does also speak more English
then The United States of America.
Facts About China
Ice cream was invented in China around  2000BC
when the Chinese packed a soft milk and rice
mixture in the snow. China is the fourth largest
country in the world. China is sometimes a day
ahead of the United States. Each year is
represented by an animal according to what year
you are born. Long ago silk making was a secret,
if anyone told somebody the secret they could get
killed. It is considered good luck in China if
your gate faces south. Red is the lucky colour
for China even wedding dresses used to be red.
Im ancient history
Tourist Attractions in China
The tourist attractions in China are The Great
Wall of China which stretches all over China and
is over 6,000 Kms long. The Terracotta warriors
This includes an incredible collection of 6,000
men and their horses. The warriors are over 2000
years old and were originally constructed to
protect the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang.
China has made lots of inventions that has been
brought into our everyday lives, like umbrellas,
gunpowder, the compass, paper and fireworks. Most
of these inventions have been made long ago, some
of them made even before Christ!

Greece was the first place to hold the Olympics
in 1896. As it is the first holder of the Olympic
games, they got to choose how many countries got
to play in the games. So they chose 14 countries,
including New Zealand.

The gold medal in 1988
The gold medal in 1992

The Beijing Olympics
The Most Used Stadiums of Beijing
The Bids Nest
The Water Cube
The Chinese have spend around 40 BILLION dollars
on the making of the Water Cube and The Bids
Nest. And I think it has all paid off as the
Olympics is always being watched, and Beijing has
made some wonderful stadiums which Olympic
records have been broken and new ones are set.
Beijing, hosts of the 2008 Olympics
The Opening Ceremony
The Olympic ceremony was the only one with that
much fireworks, it was a definite blast and the
most of the world was watching, and cheering on
their country. The opening ceremony included the
Olympic mascots (pictured below). The Olympic
mascots consist of the colours of the rings,
blue, black, red, yellow and green.
Beijing, hosts of the 2008 Olympics
China has many tourist attractions including the
famous, The Great Wall of China, and The
Forbidden Temple. The Great Wall has been made to
protect the Emperor Quin Shi Huangdi from the
Mongolians, and The Forbidden City, which is
obviously forbidden apart from all of the
tourists and staff that work there BUT did you
know there still is an emperor who says weather
you can come in or not.
This year the basketball was in the Olympics in
Beijing and USA won. In a match between them and
Spain, USA won and got the gold medal and Spain
settled for silver. The other final for Bronze
was between Argentina and Lithuania, and
Argentina got bronze. The Beijing mascot Huanhuan
is good at ball games and that includes
Swimming is one of the most famous Olympic event,
and since Michael Phelps is doing the sport I
think everyone would want to see him swim.
Michael Phelps is a swimming legend as he has set
many world record and he got into the history
books. At this Olympics Phelps has got eight gold
medals and eleven gold medals in total, the most
anyone has in the world.
It started in the late 60s with California kids
on Schwinn bicycles imitating motocross riders on
vacant lots, and ultimately developing their own
sport. Now, four decades later, BMX has left
those makeshift tracks for the largest sports
stage in the world. Is BMX ready for the
Olympics? Perhaps the better question is whether
the Olympics are ready for BMX.
BMX, short for Bicycle Motocross is a brand new
event this year in the Beijing Olympics and joins
road, track, and mountain bike events to make
bike racing the most exciting sport in the 2008
Sarah Walker
Sarah Walker started BMXing in 1999 following the
footsteps of her brother. Showing she had talent
from the get go by winning in her first ever
nationals and hasn't slowed down since. She has
consistently been a strong competitor in Oceania
and is proving her self amongst European racers
too as she held first ranking for UCI points. The
biggest result Sarah has achieved was becoming
World Champion in Canada earlier this year where
she dominated the competition and nailed every
jump to give her a very convincing win
Mahe Drysdale
Born in Melbourne, Australia Mahe Drysdale began
rowing in a university at the age of 18. He gave
up rowing to concentrate on his studies, but
started rowing after watching Rob Waddell win
gold at Sydney. Drysdale began competing at world
cup level in 2002, rowing in the New Zealand
coxless four. After the 2004 Olympic games, in
which his N.Z crew finished 5th in the final,
Drysdale switched to single sculling, winning the
2005 world championship in Japan. Drysdale is a
member of the West End rowing club in Avondale,
Auckland, N.Z and Tideway Scullers, London.
Michael Phelps
Michael is a sporting legend, he has broke many
world records and has got 8 gold medals in the
2008 Olympics, that is more than anybody else in
the world. He has also got 14 gold medals in
total which surprised and bet Mark Spitz, With 7
gold medals also from swimming. Phelps also has
also won 6 gold( which contributes to the 14
golds) and 2 bronze at the 2004 Olympics in
Everything done by Jake.B and Logan.
