    Chinese team arrived at Heathrow airport on the 23rd. the draw happened during their flight so most of them probably didn't know until they arrived.

    the court color is sooo bright, PINKY PINKY...giving the impression of a luring appearance of an "adult entertainment club" ... OMG :confused::rolleyes: what a taste...

    a few comments:

    tian qing is always so cheerful and smiley! :)

    blech! that pink purple arena... poke my eyes out! :p

    has anyone noticed the schedule at the wembley arena? there're only 3 courts and the organizers only gave each court 35-40 minutes per game starting from 8:30am to 8:30pm?! :eek:

    i can already foresee that there will again be some really late games till 1am! when will they learn! :(

    it took WWK 2.5 hours to get to the olympic village because the bus driver didn't know the way and got lost. you'd think they'll train the bus driver properly for important routes like Airport -> Olympic Village...

    at the worst they can still install a GPS navigation with right map in each Olympic bus... it just takes a negligible amount of pounds,... why so mean???

    the rest of the HK team are in the same bus. eventually they flagged down a police car who led them to their destination.

    :eek: Ooh... this type of attire-cut is very tummy/waist unfriendly as it makes them look fat. Is that Reiko 2nd from right?

    Don't worry, apparently the American and Australian teams also got equal treatment. ;). http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/ol...s-get-lost-from-Heathrow-to-Olympic-Park.html

    Edit: actually worse as it took *3.5 hrs* for a simple half hour ride. :p

    lol. our CBA head coach with a sense of humor?!? or just sarcasm?

    at least he has sensibility to not host the player in the olympic village where it will be a non stop 2 week party.

    and i hope they brought their own cook.

    there are rumors of LD being the flag-bearer but LYB knows nothing about it. it makes little sense though as there are many other eligible athletes as well.

    In that case i guess the OC just intentionally adds up an extra service of free London city & surrounding tour to welcome foreign athletes ;) a little bit unspoken surprise
