JACKSON, Tenn.Aug. 8, 2008 – Tim Ellsworth, director of news and media relations at Union University, has arrived in China to cover the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games for Baptist Press.

Ellsworth will be in China until Aug. 16. His reports will appear at Baptist Press and on The Jackson Sun’s Web site.

“Covering the Beijing Olympics is quite possibly the highlight of my career in journalism,” Ellsworth said prior to his departure. “I'm also thrilled to be a part of telling the story of how God has worked through the lives of some of the Christian athletes who will be competing."

Among the Olympic athletes Ellsworth might encounter in Beijing is Djenebou Sissoko, a former Union Lady Bulldog who is now a member of the Mali women’s basketball team. Sissoko graduated from Union in May with a degree in business administration.

Ellsworth’s reports can be seen at www.bpnews.net/olympics/. His Jackson Sun reports appear in the www.jacksonsun.com blog section.
