World-wide readers love “Olympic Express”

The e-journal “Olympic Express” the IOC is running on in collaboration with the French number one sports newspaper “L’Équipe”, and its special outlet “L’Équipe junior” for a younger audience, is reaching out to a large world-wide audience that obviously appreciates this special initiative for the Beijing Games. Here are some quotes from the very generous feedback “Olympic Express” receives.
From Brazil:  
“Olympic Express shows everything that is important in a sport! I think Olympic Express should be published on more sports websites or something like this!”
“Olympic Express deserves the gold medal in Olympic communication.”
From China: 
“This is very good; it provides all the information indeed to be able to follow the planet’s biggest sporting event.”
“We want to know more about the news of the Olympics. How do people prepare? I think e-books are very interesting and convenient.”
« Bonjour, quelle bonne idée cette brochure. Je suis instituteur primaire et je me base sur celle-ci pour mes leçons.” (“Hello. This brochure is a great idea. I am a junior school teacher and use it for my lessons.”)
“I just love this website because it gives you all the latest info on the Olympics and facts on each sport, and I am very thankful that I found this website because I have a report in school on the Olympics and I’m doing ice-skating. So everyone out there who’s interested in the Olympics should go there.”
“I love all your articles! They are very informative and fun to read!”
“I really like Olympic Express and so do all of my friends.”
“Hi, my children and I love reading your magazine. I am also a teacher and my class is also enjoying the magazine. Thank you very much!”
“I really like The Olympic Games and this great magazine ‘Olympic Express’. I can't wait for 2012 as my host country will host the Games in London. I hope to be a spectator, watching the opening/closing ceremony and the athletics and aquatics events. My first Olympic memories are from Sydney 2000, seeing Sir Steve Redgrave winning his fifth gold medal. Of course in Athens 2004, I can remember Kelly Holmes winning two gold medals. She is an Olympic legend. I will try my best to share the Olympic spirit with everyone around the world and seek for peace.”
