Expect to see many inspiring moments from the dedicated athletes from all around the world in the coming days as the 2008 Olympics begin in Beijing China. http://en.beijing2008.cn/
The Olympic motto is Citius—Altius—Fortius, which is Latin for "faster, higher, stronger." The intended meaning is that one's focus should be on bettering one's achievements, rather than on coming in first.
I took a few minutes and modeled in 3D in AutoCAD 2009 the Olympic Rings emblem/chain that symbolize the countries coming together. I then imported the 3D DWG file into Autodesk Impression and in about 30 seconds stylized it to look like hand markers but I could have used many other treatments like watercolor or colored pencils.
The Olympic emblem modeled in 3D and then styled in Impression was just for fun but many Autodesk customers around the world used Autodesk tools to design and build the infrastructure of the Olympics and facilities in Beijing and are already hard at work for the next venue.
