Tianjin - Olympic Games venue
Tianjin was given the honor like Shanghai, Qinqdao, Hong Kong to cohost Olympic events with Beijing. The new Tianjin Stadium hosted Olympic football games.
One of the benefits was the prompt completion of the Beijing-Tianjin Express Train line and the new Train station.
One the way to Tianjin, I met a Chinese youth going back wearing the Olympics Volunteer shirt and carrying a boxful of Olympic mascot memorabilia given to him. He was very proud to be part of the success of Olympics Games and the opportunity to stay in Olympics Village.
