  It's the water that defines1 Sydney. It's a playground, a front yard, and a highway upon which thousands of Sydneysiders, as the locals are called, get to and from work. Ocean and harbor beaches help 1)fuel the unique Sydney spirit. The harbor's most recognizable feature is its 2)dramatic Opera House. Completed in 1963, it looks like 3)billowing sails to sun, although the architect had orange sections in mind. While Australia is almost as big as the continental2 U.S. with only 18 million people, it has just about one fifteenth the population. Sydney's four million residents, make it Australia's largest city by far. It's also the capital of New South Wales, one of Australia's eight states and territories.

Announcer 1: We can crossover now to Stadium Australia and pick up the opening ceremony which I gather is just begun 4 hours of entertainment awaiting us. As we pick it up, and the crowd there of 110,000 watching the 4)stockriders coming in, apparently3 120 men on horses, and I'mkeeping a close lookout4 for Paul Hogan, who's supposed to be one of them.

Announcer 2: We had had word that Paul might be one of these riders. Interesting the stadium holding a 110,000, it's the largest ever Olympic stadium. Los Angeles' held 101and Moscows held 100,000, but this one is the biggest.

Announcer 1: And I think we're going to get dizzy with all the facts and figures apparently. that cloth was gone over the stadium, because there's a playing surface under there, the largest single cloth of its kind ever designed. Actually I'm not going to go crazy on numbers and facts and figures, you'll get dizzy, and you'll probably get bored at home. The horsemen came out shouting out 5)G'Day G'Day, and here we are, we get it in the flag, G'Day.

Announcer 2: And that flag is a painting by Ken5 Done, a very famous Australian artist, who's had quite a bit to do with the Olympics.

6)Under Southern Skies

There is a peace in our hearts, and a hope in our hands

We're a family of children, we come from many different lands

Our time is just beginning, our race is yet to run,

But if you would take us with you, then we have already won

(Announcer 1: Well the costume designer has certainly out done himself in that representation6 of the five continents, with those 5 people backing up the little green girl.

Announcer 2: And singing out there the southern skies.)

Under the southern skies, together in this land

Every voice in celebration

A family hand in hand under the southernskies,

as one we rise

And turn our eyes to see

All the wonders of the future in a world of harmony

Announcer 1: And now the People's Republic of China, 276 representatives. It is that the basketball star carrying the flag, Li Yudong.

Announcer 2: And of course medal chances spread right through the programmes, from disciplines like taekwondo, table tennis, badminton, and of course the diving. I'm sure they'll be very competitive7 in the diving events.

Announcer 1: If I was going to put money on a gold medal winner, I would put it on Ge Fei, Gu Jun in the Women's Badminton, right, now it's just about the 100% past time medal tick.

 

    The first of the shooting gold medals was decided8 yesterday, and competition continued today, with the Women's 10 meter Air Pistol9 final. Shooters are often considered a 7)breed apart from other athletes. They bear some of the sports' most exemplary characters, like Sweden's legendary10 Oscar Swahn, who won the last of 6 Olympic medals back in 1920 at the grand age of 72. Four years ago at Atlanta, it was Russia gold and silver in the Women's Air Pistol. The SydneyGames though was to bring three different nations to the medal dayis. The gold medal was won by China's Luna Tao, shooting consistantly throughout the teams shot final.

We are close to commencing11 the final rotation12, first subdivision for the Women's qaulifying...shots...and...  above the floor. The silver medal went to Yugoslavia's Jasna Sekaric and bronze to Australia's Annemarie Forder. For Tao it was one better than her runner up performance at last year's world championships.

    Fu Mingxia picked up a record eqaulling fourth Olympic diving title in dramatic fashion on her final two dives. Fu came out of retirement13 last year, and achieved a total of 609.42 points, to beat 8)compatriot Guo Jingjing into second place. Doerte Lindner of Germany was a distant third.

    Mainland athletes also dominated14 in the diving pool, 9)springboard champion Xiong Ni teamed up with Xiao Hailing15 to take the men's 10)synchronized springboard title. They led from the first round, and built a gap of more than 35 points over the second place Russian pair of Dmitry Sautin and Alexander Dobroskok of the five dives. Xiong and Xiao's win came hoton the heels of compatriots. Li Na and Sang Xue who got China's gold medal winning spree of to a good start in the women's events. The world cup champions scored an equaling convincing victory, finishing more than 30 points ahead of Canada's silver medal winning pair of Anne Montminy and Emilie Heymans.

 

    China scored a triple16 success before lunch at the Sydney Olympics, particularly sweet was a controversial victory in the Woman's 20 Kilometer walk.

It was the first time the 20km walk had been contested by woman as an Olympics, replacing the 10 km event from previous games. It gave Wang Liping a chance to answer critics, who claimed, Chinese athletes would 11)lag behind in endurance17 events at the Sydney Olympics. However she needed a bit of luck in winning the event. It came at the expense of Jane Saville, who suffered a cruel end to her challenge. The Australian was leading on the approach to the stadium when she was disqualified from the event, after a third warning for running. That allowed Wang, the 24-year-old daughter of a factory worker in ShenYang, to stride18 unchallenged to the line and claim the gold in 1 hour 29 minutes and 5 seconds. Norway's Kjersti Plaetzer was second and Maria Vasco of Spain third.

 

         2000悉尼奥运会精彩回顾

 

        湛蓝的海水即是悉尼的性格。这里是一片乐土,是休憩的庭院,是许多被当地人称作”悉尼佬”的人工作之余消遣的好去处。无边的海洋和海滩形成了悉尼独特的精神。这个港口城市最吸引人的地方即是悉尼歌剧院。它建于1963年,尽管建筑师的原意是橘瓣,悉尼歌剧院却更像扬起的风帆驶向太阳。澳大利亚和美国差不多大,但却只有1800万人,是美国人口的1/15。悉尼的人口为4百万,是澳大利亚最大的城市。它还是澳大利亚的8个州之一--新南威尔士州的首府。

解说员1:我们现在把镜头摇向澳大利亚体育场,观看刚刚开始的开幕式,我想,有四个小时的快乐时光等待着我们。从屏幕上看,大约有11万观众,120名骑士进入场地,我目不转睛地看着保罗·霍根,他也是其中一个。

解说员2:保罗·霍根是其中一个,悉尼体育场能容纳11万人,是最大的奥林匹克体育场。洛杉矶体育场可以容纳10万零1千人,莫斯科的可以容纳10万人,但澳大利亚的是最大的。

解说员1:我们得为数字和资料着实费一番口舌了。体育场上展开一匹布,这可是最大的一匹布了。其实,我并不会为这些事实和资料头疼,头疼的是观众,你们在家里也会烦不胜烦。骑士们喊着”你好,你好”,我们可以从旗子上看到”你好”。

解说员2:这面旗帜是由肯·多恩-一个与奥运颇有联系的著名的澳大利亚艺术家所绘。

在南方的天空下

 在我们心中,有一片净土;

在我们手中,握着一个希望

世界各地的儿童,我们是一个大家庭

我们的幸福时光刚刚开始,我们的赛程刚刚启动

如果你愿意和我们一起,那我们已经成功

(解说员1:小女孩身后站着5个演员,服装设计师用不同颜色的服装来象征5大洲。

解说员2:并在南方的天空下歌唱。)

在这片土地上,在这南方的天空下

齐声欢呼

每个人手牵手,在这南方的天空下组成一个大家庭

万众一心

让我们的眼睛看到

未来和谐世界里的每一个奇迹

解说员1∶现在入场的是中国代表团,共有276名代表。旗手是篮球运动员刘玉栋。

解说员2∶有希望拿奖牌的项目是跆拳道、乒乓球、羽毛球和跳水,我想他们在跳水项目上是十分具有竞争力的。

解说员1∶如果让我赌输赢的话,我会把钱投在女子羽毛球的葛菲和顾俊,过去这个项目可从没失过手。

        昨天角出了射击的第一枚金牌,今天比赛继续进行,现在是女子十米气手枪决赛。射击选手不同于其他选手,他们拥有运动员最希望具有的特质。如瑞典的具有传奇色彩的老将奥斯卡·斯旺,已经获得过6枚奥运奖牌,最后一枚奖牌更是在1920年以72岁的高龄获得。四年前在亚特兰大奥运会上,俄罗斯选手包揽了女子气手枪的金银牌。在本届悉尼奥运会上则是”三足鼎立”--中国的陶璐娜获得金牌。

“女子十米气手枪-女子射击的第一个项目的最后一轮射击就要开始了……射击……稍高于水平线。”南斯拉夫的贾斯娜·塞克里克获得银牌,澳大利亚的安娜玛丽亚·福德获得铜牌,而对于陶璐娜来说,这是继去年获得世界冠军以来的最好成绩。

        伏明霞的最后两跳使她成功卫冕第四块奥运金牌。去年伏明霞重新归队,总分达到609.42分,击败了竞争对手郭晶晶,郭晶晶名列第二,他们遥遥领先,德国的多特·林德名列第三。

        中国运动员仍是跳水池中的霸主,男子跳板冠军熊倪与肖海亮共同获得男子跳板双人冠军。从第一跳开始他们就开始领先,第五跳过后,即与亚军--俄罗斯的德米特·索汀和亚历山大·多布罗斯科克拉开了35分的差距。熊倪和肖海亮的胜利掀起了中国跳水队的一轮新的夺金热潮。曾获世界锦标赛冠军的李娜、桑雪在女子双人跳板比赛中一开始就发挥出色,夺得冠军,比亚军--加拿大的安妮·蒙特米尼和艾米莉·海曼斯超出30多分。

 

        悉尼奥运会上,中国在中午之前连获三胜,尤其来之不易的是女子20公里竞走。

         这是首次在奥运会上开设女子20公里竞走项目,代替以前的10公里竞走。有人说中国运动员在悉尼奥运会上的耐力项目上缺乏竞争力,王丽萍让这种传言不攻自破。但她的胜利可以说是十分幸运的,以澳大利亚的简·萨维尔”悲惨”落败为前提。简·萨维尔一直处于领先,在体育场门口却被裁判以第三次跑步犯规为由罚出比赛,这样,24岁的王丽萍,这个沈阳工人的女儿,以1小时295秒的成绩摘得桂冠。挪威的科斯蒂·普莱策获亚军,西班牙的玛丽亚·瓦斯科获季军。
