100 Days to Go

There are now 100 days to go until the start of the Olympic Games 2004 in Athens.

This milestone has been greeted this morning by three bombs, exploding outside a police station in Athens.

In other news, the construction of the Olympic stadium roof seems to be off schedule. The roof, billed as Greece's greatest architectural triumph since the Parthenon, is meant to resemble the ribcage of a whale.

However, it seems that the deadline of 20th of May will not be met.

Should that deadline, set by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), be missed; then the construction work will be halted, and the stadium will be left exposed to the August sunshine of Athens.

This will be neither pleasant for the athletes, or the spectators.
