They call it the "bird's nest", a tangle1 of concrete and steel that would be the center-piece of Beijing's 2008 Olympic Games. Like the new China itself, the massive2 stadium is developing at breakneck speed.

According to our schedule, we control this project very well. Like you see on the site now...right now, we are doing the steel structure closing.

Picture this, two years from now, and this stadium is where dreams will come true. Not just the dreams of the athletes, but the dreams of a country- a new China showing its new face to the world.

All the Chinese will feel very proud for our Chinese government award this Olympic Game.

And this too is a place of dreams. Here're the athletes of the future, the youngest here only 8 or 10 years old. Schools like this have helped make China a world sporting power. At the Athens Olympics, China finished only behind the United States in the gold medal tally3. In Beijing 2008, the aim is to be No.1. Children here are prepared to make great sacrifices for success even separation from their family.

I have come to a new school and have to face a new life. I miss my family but I have to let them go and get on with my life.

But before the dream, the struggle for Olympic organizers to overcome the nightmare4 of Beijing's choking traffic and polluted skies. Dirty factories have been relocated out of the city. Stricter controls and bigger penalties5 are being applied6 to polluters. And there is a big push for Beijingers to leave their cars at home and take public transport. New subway lines have been opened, but it competing with a thousand new cars on Beijing's roads every day.

Construction of transport facilities can be part of solving the problem. But this is not enough, because we can't keep pace with population growth.

If you build it, they will indeed come. The question is: With Beijing's traffic, would they be able to get to the events on time?
