Liu Peng

Age: 56
Title: China's sports minister; president of the Chinese Olympic Committee

PRO: : The biggest sporting show on earth is about to make its Beijing debut, and Liu will serve as the 2008 Olympic ringmaster.

CON: Tibet, Darfur and even the recent drug bust of a top swimmer hardly project the image of fair play that China desperately wants the world to see.
