Asian Games enhance Guangzhou's civility, says official
9 November 2010

GUANGZHOU, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- The Asian Games have spurred Guangzhou residents to behave in a more civilized manner, a municipal civic official said on Tuesday.

Zhang Youquan, the deputy director-general of Guangzhou's municipal office of civility, told a press conference here on Tuesday that a massive education campaign was launched shortly after the southern Chinese city won the hosting rights in 2004.

"We have been cultivating a civic, new and a harmonious society to prepare for the Asian Games," Zhang said. "Our six major areas include citizen actions, their fitness, public order, hygiene and sanitation."

The education program focused on how to smile at spectators and competitors, learning some English expressions, sign language, "cheers for you" and a "gesture of the day."

According to an independent assessment carried out since 2009, the public civilization index of Guangzhou is in a "continuously rising trend", said Zhang.

"The biggest reward the Asian Games will give to the city is not only the uplifting of the city, but also the promotion of social civilization," he said.

"I am confident that our citizens will display good etiquette."

The Asian Games, featuring 42 sports and more than 10,000 athletes, will start on Saturday and end on Nov. 27.

Preparation for Guangzhou Asian Games officially completed

Updated:2010-11-10 14:05:22 Source: Xinhua

The preparation for the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou has been completed, said Xu Ruisheng, Deputy Secretary General of the Guangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee (GAGOC) at a press conference here on Wednesday (November 10).

"After six years of hard work, I am pleased to announce that the preparatory work of the 16th Asian Games has been completed," said Xu, also the Vice Mayor of Guangzhou.

According to Xu, all the Games' 53 competition venues and 17 independent training venues have passed examinations on their functionality and have been opened for training since November 5, while the Sport Infromation Centre is ready to answer NOCs' inquiry.

The competition schedule and training programme has been confirmed while the draws of team sports have been completed, he added.

The Games services are fully prepared, such as customs clearance, arrival and departure services, accreditation, catering, transport, accommodation and security.

The Asian Games torch, "The Tide", returned to Guangzhou on Nov. 5 after completing the relay in Beijing, Harbin, Changchun, Haiyang and 20 cities of Guangdong Province.

The preparation of the Asian Games Opening Ceremony has also been finished. "We conducted three rehearsals on November 4, 6 and 8," said Xu. "'Water' will be a key element of the Opening Ceremony."

Xu said the details of the Opening Ceremony will be further revealed in a special press conference.

The Asian Games kicks off on November 12. During the 15-day Games, a total of 10,156 athletes from 45 Asian countries and regions will compete in 476 events in 42 sports.

Rising China, rising Asia

Updated:2010-11-11 08:30:21 Source: ocasia.org

A leading Asian sports official says the rise of China has played a major role in the rise of Asia in world sport. Raja Randhir Singh, Secretary General of Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) and a Member of International Olympic Committee (IOC), has vast experience of Asian and world sport, having represented India at shooting in six Olympic Games from 1964 to 1984 and four Asian Games, in 1978, 1982, 1986 and 1994, winning the gold medal in Bangkok 1978.



Raja Randhir Singh, Secretary General of the OCA and a Member of IOC

"A lot is happening in Asia, and the Asian Games has seen tremendous change," he said at a joint press conference between Asian Games organisers Guangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee (GAGOC) and the OCA on Wednesday (November 10).

China had been at the vanguard of this change, he added, with the 1990 Asian Games in Beijing, the Asian Winter Games in 1996 and 2007, the Olympic Games in 2008 and now the Guangzhou Asian Games.

"Asia as a continent is coming up in the world of sport and China has been a major player in this. The development and the level of sport has been phenomenal and is something the rest of us in Asia should be proud of."

right. Frankly they cannot keep it a secret even if they want to, since Haixinsha is an open space unlike the bird nest, so they probably decided to make it as open as possible.

BTW, can someone provide a website link to watch the ceremony online? I am a little bit worried CNTV might block ips from America.
