奧運開幕式幕後故事 張藝謀兩萬言解密 - 1 views

  • 你能隱隱地感覺到,老外認為我們的表演好,這是肯定的,畢竟准備了這麼長時間。讓他們驚喜的是看到了我們另外一種面貌,浪漫和夢幻,現代感的夢幻和浪漫,盡管表現的是古老中國的許多文化遺產。其實世界性也就在這裡出現了,就是人性、世界性和包容性,一個民族所謂的自信,我覺得是體現在這些方面。
  • 實際上所謂“世界文化”,那時候只是注重國際性、包容性,有點像現在實現的這一部分。現在的開幕式,我們一直也在強調這種感覺,比如夢幻和浪漫的風格,我就有自己的看法,一個民族它自信了,才會夢幻和浪漫。通常夢幻和浪漫,都覺得是法國人,中華民族給人家的感覺總是很嚴肅的、很拘謹的、很壓抑的……其實我覺得夢幻和浪漫的風格,對民族的形象有很大提升,我們不是他們想象中的中國人。

ESPN - 'No way' turns into 'no quit' for Lezak, men's relay team - Olympics - 2 views

  • No way met no quit."I changed," he said. "I thought, 'That's ridiculous. I'm at the Olympic Games, I'm here for the United States of America. I don't care how bad it hurts, I'm going after it.'"I just got a super charge."
  • No way met no quit."I changed," he said. "I thought, 'That's ridiculous. I'm at the Olympic Games, I'm here for the United States of America. I don't care how bad it hurts, I'm going after it.'"I just got a super charge."What transpired during the final 50 meters was the stuff of Disney movies. It was the kind of thing that should land Lezak a co-starring role with Phelps on cereal boxes and network morning shows. And if Phelps does complete the great eight and pocket a $1 million Speedo bonus, he should cut a check for one-eighth of that total to the guy who kept the quest alive: Jason Lezak.

  • With history about to slip away and Michael Phelps cheering him on, Jason Lezak pulled up next to the lane rope and set out after hulking Alain Bernard, like a NASCAR driver drafting down the backstretch at Daytona.
