First Tibetan Athlete to debut at the London Olympics 2012!!!

10 Aug

If all my wishes came  true -just  like this one. I would make it my profession to wish for all mankind. Few days ago, while I was writing   my blog about the “Opening Ceremony” brand & “Olympics”, I was hoping and wishing that someday, my country Tibet would  debut in the Olympics.

It didn’t take long for my wish to come true, although  this came with a little twist.   A 21( will turn 22 on Nov 11,2012)  year old   Tibetan girl by the name  Choeyang will debut at the ongoing London Olympics in the 20 km Women’s Race Walking event on August 11.However, the twist here is that she will  be using her Chinese name  which is   “Qieyang Shenjie” instead of her Tibetan name, “Choeyang”  & will be representing  CHINA.( “temporarily”- that’s my confidence speaking :)).Now, that Tibetan’s have set their foot in the door, it won’t be long before  we  unfurl  the Tibetan  flag at the Olympics. Great start Choeyang!!!! Wishing you all the best from a fellow Tibetan and a fellow girl from far away in the west but whose  heart and mind lives in Tibet all the time.
