[New York, NY May 9, 2008] As the world joins together for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games this summer, Coca-Cola has invited artists from around the globe to jointly depict what this monumental occasion means to them. The extraordinary alliance of visual and music artists from different lands started with eight blank canvasses of aluminum contour bottles and eight corresponding themes reflecting the possibilities for happiness and connection from both the Coke Side of Life platform and the upcoming global gathering in Beijing. Each musical artist - Tiësto, Benny Benassi, Kaskade, Jes, Serge Devant, Lucas Prata, Cezar and Jay-J—have each been provided with a theme and using music as their form of expression, created a song that expanded on their inspiration drawn from the theme.
2008 Beijing Olympics Badminton Women's Singles Bronze Medal Match Maria Kristin Yulianti (INA) vs Lu Lan (CHN) Part 5 of 7 Disclaimer: I DO NOT own this video, and no copyright infringement is intended. Please do not remove/disable this video, I uploaded it just to allow people to enjoy the match.
First and foremost, I'd like to say that I did not make this montage, nor do I own it. NBC Olympics owns the copyrights to this video and I'm only using it in a non-profit, personal use basis. It's been about a year since the torch was put out in the Beijing Stadium, but these Olympics have been an unforgettable one (not to mention a spectacular Opening Ceremony). Records were being reset and rewritten, especially in swimming where about 20 odd records were broken, 7 of them by "Flying Fish" Michael Phelps. There were just too many great and historic moments in these games, including Jason Lezak's blistering 46.06 relay split (the fastest split in this relay ever) in the men's 4x100 Freestyle relay, beating the trash talking French by 8/100 of a second. There was also the 100m Butterfly where Michael Phelps out-touched Milorad Cavic of Serbia to take the gold medal by a mere 1/100 of a second, adding to his 8 gold medals in Beijing surpassing Mark Spitz's previous record of 7 gold medals in a single Olympiad. Now with 14 gold medals to his name (16 total medals), Phelps seeks for more gold at London in 2012. Outside of the water cube, "Lightning" struck the track and field stadium. A 22 year-old first timer of Jamaica, Usain Bolt (aka Lightning) brought home 3 gold medals while breaking 3 world records in the 100m dash, 200m dash, and 4x100 meter relay, proving to the world he is the fastest man alive from the fastest nation in the world. Then there was China's dominance ...
