China’s Olympic fervor is reaching new heights. Last week, movie star Jackie Chan recorded the one-year Olympic countdown song, We Are Ready. You can watch a performance here. (Warning: the catchy chorus might get stuck in your head for hours). This weekend, Xinhua reported on a fellow in Mudanjiang, northeastern China, who constructed an Olympic-ring bicycle, which he plans to ride around the country to promote the Olympics. And according to The First, a newspaper devoted to covering the Beijing Olympics, there are now 3,491 people in China named “Aoyun,” or “Olympics.” Now that’s Olympic spirit. For life.
