    Tragedy Strikes Games

    [size=10pt]Stabbing victim father of '04 U.S. Olympian, father-in-law of coach[/size]

    BEIJING -- The murder of the father of a former Olympian at a Beijing landmark cast a sad shadow over the first full day of Olympic competition Saturday, just hours after China's jubilant opening of the Summer Games.

    I heard this on the news just a couple hours ago. Very very sad.. Murder is even not common in China let alone murder on foreigners...

    Very horrid way to start the games. Hopefully it doesn't overshadow the rest of the event and that no one else gets hurts

    Very sad. If memory serves me correctly, the man's wife is in critical condition. I pray God heals her.
