"I think someone's having a go alright, yeah. But I don't know why..."

"I think it's a bit of a disgrace, if they want to take the mickey out of Tingalpa. It's a great place to live."

"At the outset, it looked fairly ludicrous, the way they put it up in the paper. But when you go through the area... the logistics of it... it's a very feasible concept, actually."

"... projected making 74 million dollars in tourism."

Tingalpa may one day host the greatest show on earth.

"And I'm confident that it'll be the best Olympic Games ever."

Rick Burnett enthuses about the bid.

Relive the magic of the Beijing Summer Olympic Games.
