 Athletes in the United States were briefed on Chinese culture and etiquette in a short training class for the upcoming Beijing Olympics.

"Xiexie,in Chinese...."

The U.S. Olympic Committee says it is necessary for its athletes to learn more about the customs and culture of the host country. Those athletes who attended the class said the training would help them perform better during competition.

"This scheme is very helpful. We actually just came back from a test event in China. Learning all the gestures really helped us."

Many athletes said they believe etiquette and event results will be equally important during the games.
