image for Olympics Set For Tibet Switch
The flattest place in Tibet

The Olympic Games, scheduled to take place in Beijing in June, could face a last-minute switch to Tibet, if sources inside the romantic fantasy mountain kingdom are to be believed.

Sources close to the Dalai Lama have said that the much-venerated exiled hermit has had talks with members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and its President Jacques Rogge, and is hopeful that the Games could be held in Tibet.

Despite having no stadiums, sporting facilities or even flat surfaces, Tibet is confident that it would be able to stage the event, and has called for Divine Intervention.
Forty million tonnes of dynamite have been ordered from China to blast away mountains, rearrange the landscape, and frighten the people.

Because of the Tibetan people's dislike of noise, spectators would be required to cheer silently, and to observe strange religious beliefs and customs, should the Games take place in Tibet.

These include 'not repressing the people' and affording them basic Human Rights.

A decision on the switch is expected on Saturday.
