Beijing Olympics open with nod to Year of the Tiger

Beijing: Days after the quiet ringing of the Chinese New Year, Beijing celebrates the Year of the Tiger on the Olympic podium.

The tiger, a symbol of strength and good luck in Chinese folklore, was featured during Friday’s Winter Olympics opening ceremony. Placard bearers for all 91 countries in the Parade of Nations each wore a unique tiger-headed hat, and a children’s choir was outfitted with traditional tiger-headed shoes made in northern Hebei province.
