A Photo From the Olympics Soccer Stadium (Updated)

Here is a photo from the semifinals of men’s Olympic soccer Tuesday at Shanghai Stadium. A few Nigerians hold a banner in the middle of the sea of Chinese viewers. The banner says: “We are not good in gymnastics. We are not good in Ping-pong. But we are good in soccer! ”


UPDATE: A Sohu blogger responded to the banner: “We are not good in track and field. We are not good in swimming pool. But we are good in (jumping) bed*, both men and women.”

* Chinese translation of “trampoline” is “Jumping Bed”
