Is she the American who played for the Russian women's basketball team? I saw some woman hug him, but I had no idea who it was.

Apparently Michael Phelps is partial to Italian female swimmers.
Seems like he first tried to have a date with gold medalist Federica Pellegrini, who told the journalists that she doesn't speak English. "But he does speak Italian" said they. So she replied she has a boyfriend already: Luca Marin, Laure Manadou's ex-boyfriend.

Later Michael tried to do the same with silver medalist Alessia Filippi, but she didn't comment.

Report: China to auction Yao Ming's bed, 20 million other Olympic items - Olympics - Yahoo! Sports

"Also on the block will be electric appliances used by Liu Xiang, the celebrity 110m hurdler forced to quit the Games with an injury"
Why would someone want appliances used by an athlete who didn't even compete?

Maybe because Liu Xiang is olympic gold medalist and world champion and a big star and great athlete?

Orchestra admits 'miming' at Sydney Olympics in 2000 - Yahoo! News

http://blogs.wsj.com/chinajournal/20...googlenews_wsj

So now Sydney is admitting they faked some of their opening ceremony? I feel so betrayed! I don't think I'll ever view the Olympics the same way again!

Wow! Thank you for all of the pictures that everyone posted. The royals from different countries looked so happy and cheerful while they were at the Olympic events. I watched the opening and closing ceremories on TV. I saw a few royals at the Opening ceremory on TV on August 8th but I did not see any royals at the Closing ceremory on TV on August 24th.

Usain Bolt donated 50,000 US dollars to the Red Cross Society of China to help the child victims of the Sichuan earthquake.

Infanta Elena will be present at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games on the 6th September (probably she stays there longer). Infanta Elena is the honorary president of the Spanish Paralympic Committee.
Crown princess Victoria will be at the Paralympic Games from the 8th to the 14th September according to the agenda of the Swedish Royal Family

I really liked the outfits worn by the Olympic hostesses - the ones carrying the medals and the ones escorting the medal-winning athletes. That was one of my favorite parts of watching the Olympics - seeing what color & style of dress the women were wearing. I really like the red ones above though! They are the prettiest ones I seen so far.

Liu Yan, the classical dancer who was paralyzed while rehearsing for the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, is adjusting to life in a wheelchair.
