Suggested World Feed intro by Dr Stuart Storey
Welcome to Rome the eternal city – it has one of the oldest histories in Europe. The first city centre I’m told may well date back to around 753 BC. It is a city surrounding a city – the Vatican City the smallest independent state in the world. Monuments, ruins and majestic buildings depicting the ages – ancient and modern are evidence of the historical and modern day importance of Rome. For the visitor there is so much to admire here.
Welcome to this magnificent Olympic Stadium and to the third of the 6 Golden League Athletics meetings.
6 Athletes remain in contention after the meetings in Berlin and Oslo. For the women Kerron Stewart looks strong in the 100 meters clocking 10.99 in Oslo, Sanya Richards set the worlds fastest time over 400metres 49.23 in Oslo, Damu Cherry notched up her second win in the 100m hurdles and so did an unconvincing Yelena Isinayeva in the Pole Vault winning only on count back.
For the men Kenenisa Bekele looks as though he can go all the way over 3 or 5000meters and Tero Pitkamaki remains the top man in the Javelin.
The target for all six, to keep winning for a share of the 1 million dollar prize depicted in gold.
Good luck with your transmission
