The Beijing Olympic Games organization committee released a set of symbols
representing each of the sports for the 2008 Games on Monday, one day before its
two-year countdown to the opening ceremonies.
The release ceremony is one of a set of celebrations held by the organization
committee to mark the two-year countdown to the Games.
Olympic pictographs, which were first seen at the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games,
are used as the official marks for the broadcasting, advertising and marketing
