2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games

I attended the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. So while in Beijing, I was able to buy many different Beijing Olympic Cames postcards.

Here are three holographic cards of the major stadiums and their "moving" mascots.

Postcard 1 - The Bird Nest
This was where the amazing Opening Ceremony was held. Where Usain Bolton of Jamaica broke the men's 100m record and China's 110m Liu Xiang withdrew due to injury.

Postcard 2 - The Water Cube
Where Michael Phelps of USA won eight Olympic gold medals in swimming and China excelled in the diving competition.

Postcard 3 - The National Indoor Stadium
Where gymnastics was held. I sent this postcard back to Malaysia and it arrived safely and in excellent condition.

Postcard 4 - Beijing 2008 Paralympics Games
After the Summer Olympic Games, the Paralympics were held in September. Thanks to "anjing" for sending this great hologram postcard with the special Paralympics postal chops.

Postcard 5 - Argentina
A special postcard of the Beijing Summer Olympics 2008 Torch Run in Argentina. Nice stamps used. Thanks to Viviana of Argentina.
