This is a magnificent effort from everyone involved with the Local Organising Committee,” commented President .

“I can only reiterate what I said recently, I am now convinced that we will have a great atmosphere in the Bird’s Nest Stadium for the world’s top sporting event of 2015, and I would like to thank our friends in China – especially the Minister of the General Administration of Sport of China Liu Peng and the Mayor of Beijing Wang Anshun – for stepping up their efforts in the promotional campaign,” added President Diack.
