IOC Present Jacques Rogge to Run for a Second Term as IOC President

Jacques Rogge, the current president of International Olympic Committee (IOC), has recently announced his candidature for a second four-year term as IOC president. He was elected IOC president in 2001 for an eight-year term which will finish next year and the next IOC election will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

There is a possibility Jacques Rogge might win the election unopposed for a second term as IOC president because there is no other IOC member likely to run for the presidential post in IOC. The senior members IOC members like vice president Lambis Nikolaou appreciated the decision of Jacques Rog to stand for a second term in IOC office. During his first term as IOC president, two Olympic Games- 2004 Athens Olympic Games and 2008 Beijing Olympic Games- were successfully held.

Summer Olympics 2008: The Waiting is Over

Yes, the waiting is over for Beijing Summer Olympic Games 2008. From today, football matches started. Good thing is that Brazil won against Belgium. Argentina has won too and I am happy that Messi is playing for Argentina. This should boost their chance of retaining the gold medal. Of course, Barcelona is not happy because Barcelona wanted desperately Messi not to play in Olympics 2008.

Enough of football. In fact, I think that the most attractive disciplines in Olympics are swimming and athletics.

Tomorrow, is the grand opening ceremony of Olympics 2008. So, have a good time and enjoy the games.
