A Fitting Ending
The closing ceremony was nothing short of spectacular.
Beijing, China (Sports Network) - The closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics on Sunday night ended 16 days of competition at a record-setting Games.

It featured a handoff to the 2012 London Olympics that included a quintessential red double-decker bus, trailed into the stadium by gold medal winners from Great Britain's track cycling team.

The bus converted to a stage, and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page performed the band's "Whole Lotta Love" with pop singer Leona Lewis. Soccer star David Beckham kicked a ball into a crowd of onlookers.

Later, world-famous tenor Placido Domingo had a duet with Chinese singer Song Zuying.
