Thousands of visitors to London this week have made incredibly long trips to get here. Only one claims to have done it all on a rickshaw.
Farmer Chen Guanming is claiming that he made the entire journey from his home in Eastern China on his three-wheeled rickshaw. He says it took him two years to complete the ride, and he has photos of him in front of famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower to prove his case.
"I came. I did it. I'm very happy to have come to beautiful London," he said.
He made the trip without a ticket for the opening ceremony. He figures if he made it this far, he should be able to come up with a way to get into Olympic Stadium on Friday night.
