[00:22.20]He is now intervwiing Lili,a Chinese girl.
[00:27.56]P:My name is Pausanias.
[00:31.61]I lived in what you call " Ancient Greece"
[00:35.74]and I used to write about the Olympic Games more than 2,000 years ago.
[00:42.29]I have come to your time to find out about the present day Olympic because
[00:49.27]I know that in 2004 they are to be held in my hometown of Athens3.
[00:57.00]Please can I ask you some questions?
[01:01.13]L:Of course you can.What would you like to know?
[01:05.80]P:How often do you hold your Games?
[01:09.88]L:Every four years athletes from all over the world are admitted as competitors4.
[01:16.93]Tere are two sets of Games-the Summer and the Wintre Olympics
[01:22.99]and both are held every four years.
[01:27.56]The Winter Olympics are usually held two years before the Summer Olympics.
[01:33.81]P:Winter Games?How can the runners enjoy competing in winter?
[01:39.87]And what about the horses?
[01:43.34]L:Oh no!No running races or horse riding are included.
[01:50.00]There are events like skiing5 and ice skating which need snow and ice.
[01:56.17]That is why they are called the Winter Olympics.
[02:00.71]P:Athletes competing from all over the world? Do you mean the Greek world?
[02:07.35]Our Greek citices used to compere6 against each other for the honour of winning7.
[02:13.88]No other country could join in,nor could slaves8 or women.
[02:20.15]L:All countries can take part
[02:23.99]if their athletes reach the standard to be admitted to the games.
[02:29.63]There are over 250 sports and each one has its own standard.
[02:36.60]Women are not only allowed to join in but play a very important role,
[02:43.45]especially in...
[02:46.61]P:Please stop!All those events,all those countries and even women taking part!
[02:55.15]Where will all the competitors be staying?

[03:04.56]a stadium9 for competitions,a very large swimming pool,
[03:11.32]P:It must be expensive.Does anyone want to host the Olympic Games?
[03:18.09]L:As a matter of fact,everyone wants to.It's a great honour.
[03:24.64]It's just as much a competition among countries to host the Olympics
[03:30.91]as to win an Olympic medal.
[03:34.75]The 2008 Olympics will beld in China.Did you know that?
[03:41.31]P:Oh yes!You must be very proud.Did you say medals?

[03:59.78]It's still all about being able to run facter,jump higher and throw further.
[04:07.43]P:That'good news!Thank you for you time.Goodbye.
[04:13.39]Using Language
[04:29.30]Atlanta was a Greek princess.
[04:33.37]She was very beautiful and could run faster than any man in Greece.
[04:40.42]But she was not allowed to run in the Olympic Games.
[04:45.47]She was so angry that she said to her father
[04:50.82]she would not marry anyone who could not run faster than her.
[04:56.99]Her father said ahe must marry
[05:00.93]and asked her if she wanted to marry a king or prince.
[05:06.21]But Atlanta replied,"I will only be married to a man who can run faster than me.
[05:14.25]When a man says he wants to marry me,I will run against him.
[05:20.31]If he cannot run as fast as me,he wil be killed.No one will be pardoned."
[05:28.07]Many kings and princes wanted to marry Atlanta but when they heard of her rules,
[05:35.15]some of them sadly went home.Other men stayed to run the race.
[05:42.52]Tere was a man called Hippomenes who was amazed12 when he heard of Atlanta's rules.
[05:49.88]"Why are these men so foolish?
[05:54.14]Why will they let themselves be killed
[05:58.58]because they cannot run as fadt as this princess?"
[06:03.73]Then when he saw Atlanta come out of her nhouse to run,
[06:09.68]Hippomenes changed his mind

[06:13.52]"I will marry Atlanta--or die!"he said.
[06:18.80]The race started and although the men ran very fast,
[06:23.76]Atlanta ran faster.As Hippomenes watched,he thought,
[06:29.33]"How can I run as fast as Atlanta?"
[06:34.00]He went to ask for help from the Greek Goddess of Love.
[06:39.15]She promised to help him and gave him three golden13 apples.
[06:45.52]She said,"Throw an apple in front of Atlanta when she is runnig past
[06:52.68]and she will be relaxed.
[06:55.74]When she stops to pick it up,you will be able to run on and win."
[07:02.50]Hippomenes took the apples and went to the King.
[07:07.05]He said,"I want to marry Atlanta."
[07:11.91]The King was sad to see another man die,but Hippomenes said,
[07:18.47]"I will narry her---or die!"So the race began
