At a swim meet
Bob: This is so exciting. I love watching men's butterfly stroke.
Fran: Me, too. Swimmers have the best bodies.
Bob: After this will be a 400-meter freestyle, followed by a 1500-meter men's breaststroke.
Fran: Look at their backs. Their shoulders have such a nice V-shape to them.
Bob: Hey, we're here to watch sports, not gawk at men's bodies.
Fran: OK. Michael Phelps is in this race. We have to cheer really loud.
Bob: You're right. Somebody needs to cheer for the Americans.
Fran: What with all this worry about terrorism and the war in Iraq, it seems like everybody hates Americans.
Bob: Not only that, but they think American athletes are all cheaters anyway.

  <播放语音>

Fifty-four years after Italy had to give up hosting the Olympics due to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, Rome finally got its chance. Rome made the most of its dramatic history, holding the wrestling competition in the Basilica of Maxentius, site of wrestling contests 2,000 years earlier. Among the other ancient sites that were used were the Caracalla Baths (gymnastics) and the Arch of Constantine (finish of the marathon).

在意大利由于维苏威火山的爆发不得不放弃奥运会主办权54年之后,罗马终于成为奥运会的主办城市。罗马把自己富有戏剧性的历史利用到了极致,摔跤比赛是在2000年前举行角斗的旧址马克辛奇巴西利卡举行的。该届奥运会利用的其他古迹还有卡拉卡拉大浴场(体操比赛)以及君士坦丁凯旋门(马拉松比赛的终点)。
