The theme song names <Dream> <You and Me>, presenting at the scene called <Dream>, and will be sung in English by above two artists. Rumors have said <Beijing Welcomes You> will be the theme song, and a few other singers have been projected to be the candidates. But now it is clear.

Liu Xiang (刘翔) was one of the hottest candidate, but he has announced that he won’t participate the opening ceremony few days’ ago. Yao Ming (姚明) and Xu Haifeng (许海峰) who won the first gold medal for China in 1984 are in the top of the list.
