View from the Bird’s Nest

August 5, 2008

Beijing 2008It’s been a little quiet around here lately. That’s because I’m in Beijing covering the Olympics, and I hope you won’t mind a shameless plug for the relaunched Reuters Olympic blog — View from the Bird’s Nest.

From August 8-24 the focus will be on the Beijing Games rather than the football world, although we will of course have plenty to say about the soccer tournament at the Olympics, which Argentina, Brazil and the rest will be taking very seriously indeed.

That coverage will be cross-posted back here but if you’re at all interested in other sports please pop over to and give us your views on the great gold rush. There is life outside football!

I am glad you are covering the Olympics. I hope that you will post all the scores for everyone to see.
