The Olympic Spirit in Action

Just got to witness some of the Olympic spirit in action. The Chinese women, who were victorious in their opening match against Sweden, got a very warm reception upon their return to the hotel. You know by now that China, Sweden, Canada and Argentina are the four women's teams stationed at the hotel here in Tianjin, and the hotel staff gave a rousing ovation to their hometown Olympic heroes. A pretty cool sight, and a good indicator of how much these Games mean to the Chinese hosts.
