Animation of venues for the 2008 Olympic Games: the National Swimming Center
Okay, we’re not quite there yet. But Pieter van den Hoogenband already has his mind set on his third consecutive Olympic title at the 100m free style at the next Olympics in Beijing in 2008.
There’s not even a swimming venue yet, but the Chinese intend to amaze the world with their National Swimming Center. This center will be a large venue of the 29th Olympic Games. During the 2008 Olympic Games, the competitions of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and the finals of water polo will be held here. After the Olympic Games, the venue will become a large-scale, multi-functional aquatic sports and entertainment center that is up to international standards.
You can watch an animation clip of the venue in .wmv format
