Six Months To Go For Beijing Olympics Start

As Chinese people celebrate New Year and the beginning of The Year of the Rat it is only six months to the beginning of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, when an estimated 550,000 visitors and 10,000 athletes will descend on China's capital for what promises to be the best-ever Games.

Tickets are still available with only 25% of available tickets selling in last month's lottery round of ticket sales.

Chinese spectators bought heavily for competitions Chinese athletes are expected to do well in: badminton, diving, gynastics, swimming, and table tennis but other events have plenty of spare capacity.
