Teams of techies and construction crews are working around the clock to transform this muddy construction site into an Olympics venue fit for the 21st century.
The Olympic Park in the London borough of Newham will be the hub of 2012 Games, which will rely on 900 servers and 8,000 computers to relay results of the athletic battles to the watching world.
Behind the multi-storey shopping centre, the Olympic Stadium is taking shape. It will seat 80,000 spectators during the Games and afterwards will be reduced to 25,000 seats, to ensure it remains easy to fill.
