Never say never again. It should be the mantra of the Athens Olympic Organisers and the Greek government.
 

The Greek athletics championships are a test-run for the Olympics. They have endured years of criticism that the sports venues and new transport systems would never be ready in time for the opening ceremony of the Athens Olympics on 13 August.

But now, at the eleventh hour, it seems Greece is beginning to confound its critics.

The roof to Athens' main Olympic stadium was completed on Friday with slightly more than two months to go until the opening ceremony. Engineers have completed the 60-metre slide of the second half of the arched roof, which began on Thursday afternoon 10 days later than expected.

The first half was finished in May after a slide which lasted four days.

The International Olympic Committee has had worries about delays, with the Games scheduled to begin on 13 August.

Great, now get off the backs of the Greeks, and have a good time at the games!

Is it just me or are you really able to get up for these Olympics? Normally, I can't wait, for some reason, I'm just not pumped for them.

Well to be honest there hasn't been that much of a build up, its mainly been negative stuff due to the greeks getting behind. But they seem to have got over that now and are full steam ahead. Yea i usually watch it and i feel the same. When it starts i will be ok...

I agree with you both, I haven't been getting excited much this time around. Mustbe the negative remarks being made about Greece.

Usually by now you see tons of ads on Tv and everything, but I think I haven't seen 1 yet. Pretty Pathetic

I also think that since the switch to the alternating years for winter and summer games, we're getting sort of Olympic'd out. It used to be that the competitions were only every 4 years, and there was anticipation. Now it's like "ho-hum, yeah, the Olympics are here again this year."
