I visit the Athens olympic site and I'm impressed with what they have already accomplished getting the thing together. When they started the modern olympics again back in 1896, Greece was what could be called a third world country-they suffered five centuries under the rule of the Ottoman Turks. Now,Athens is very modern and has several nice swimming pools. The one that is use for swimming competition is an outdoor pool. Anyway, being a history nut of the ancient, I hope that the games are successful. May the Gods bless the American team. Hope that Poseidon, the sea-God will help us but of course he is for the Greeks.
