  • Notes

    • The Chinese government revoked a travel visa for U.S. Olympic speedskater Joey Cheek just days before the Beijing Games were set to begin. The probable reason is Cheek's activism in raising awareness of the humanitarian catastrophe in Darfur. The Chinese government is known to have influence with the Sudanese government. Cheek said that he did not plan to directly protest against the Chinese government during these Olympic Games.
