Welcome to 2008; a very big year for sport

January 5, 2008 | By Gerard McGovern | Olympics, Sport

2008. Year of the Rat. Year of Planet Earth. Year of the Potato. Oh, and year of the Olympics.

Beijing 2008 is set to be the biggest Olympics the world has ever seen. Here at Getty Images we have been preparing for this from virtually after the closing ceremony in Athens. The world’s biggest sporting event needs a world class team to cover it.

With us sending nearly 100 people out to China and countless more involved in our office worldwide, this is will be largest event we have ever done. Nervous? Worried? Not with the years of preparation and planning!

In the run up to the opening ceremony we will be giving you a behind scenes peek into covering the Olympics; it will be far more than you could ever imagine.

It all starts August 8th.
