Blog: Dave LeggettChina business perspectives

Watching the coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been rewarding on lots of levels. There's the raw excitement of the events themselves, of course - plenty of drama and much to marvel at in terms of human endeavour and application. Imagine training for years for an event that will be over in a matter of seconds. That's pressure (and you have to feel for the guys who made mistakes in the 4x100m relays yesterday).

But there's also the mind-boggling fascination in seeing how the Chinese are staging the event. It's a spectacular with the organisers keen to leave nothing to chance. There's a kind of Orwellian and totalitarian feel to some of what has gone on. I expect the London Olympics in 2012 will have a very different vibe.
