How about ride a train from ‘Kobe Bryant’ to ‘Michael Phelps’? It’s not a joke. London tube surprises us thanks to a new underground map that changes the names of the city’s 361 underground stations to names of famous Olympic athletes.

The names of 13 Chinese athletes in cluding Liu Xiang, Zhang Yining, Deng Yaping, Fu Mingxia, Wang Hao, Zhang Ning, Lin Dan, Yang Wei, Liu Chunhong, Chen Yanqing, Wang Junxia, Zhen Zhonghe and Wang Yifu will appear at the new map of the London’s new underground map.

Funny. I'd like to know English people's opinions on this matter. Is it appropriate to change the names of the stations?

GUEST9678 I do not think it is a good idea. The ancient station names have their own historic values. We have to protect these old sites.
