Coming In Under The Wire

It seems that in a last minute dash to the finishing line, the Greek authorities may just get most things ready for the Olympic Games in Athens this August.

Admittedly it will be "last minute".

However, there are many loose ends to clear up; such as painting the roof of the Olympic stadium and installing the remaining 67000 seats.

The cost of these games is estimated at the moment to be around $7BN. However, it is likely that this will rise.

Will the Greeks, once the party is over, say that it has been worth it?
