  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.
