Friday will be the day all Asians have been looking forward to as the Asian version of the Olympics gets underway here tomorrow with a spectacular opening ceremony that would be hard to match.
A total of over 12,000 sportsmen and women vying for honours to share 3,989 medals in 476 events makes Guangzhou Games the largest ever in the sports history.
The city is decorated with the Games flags and mascots and the flags of participating teams are fluttering high around the main stadium, anxiously waiting for the mega opening.
Most items in the opening ceremony proper are being kept as ‘secrets’ to maintain enthusiasm among sports fans. Whatever it would be, China is set to stun the sporting world with the most excited opening ceremonies in the Games history. Undoubtedly, it will be a rich blend of Chinese culture, traditions and modern techniques.
