World-wide readers love “Olympic Express”


The e-journal “Olympic Express” the IOC is running on www.olympic.org 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.”
   
Belgium: 
« 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.”)
 
USA: 
“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!”
 
England: 
“I really like Olympic Express and so do all of my friends.”
 
Australia: 
“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!”
   
England:
“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.”
