Beijing approves Olympics cheer; long live jia you 加油!!

It seems that the beloved term jia you 加油 (come on!; go!, lit. “add oil”) is being replaced by an official Olympics cheer. The Beijing Olympic Organising Committee and the Ministry of Education plan to indoctrinate introduce the new cheer to tens of thousands of potential Olympic attendees. Facelessness will be harder to teach.
