The preparation for the Beijing Olympics Games 2008 is now going on with full swing. However, the problems are coming one after another. Earlier, it was reported that construction workers were dead while working at the main stadium of the games. That was gone without anything being proven. Now, the latest problem is the concern over air pollution. The environmentalists are putting the issue forward in order make organizers aware regarding the issue.
However, Vice-chairman of IOC Coordination Commission, R. Kevan Gosper, has denied having any air pollution saying that
China Daily reported:
"Ever since I've been on the IOC: in the 1984 Los Angeles games, we were worried about pollution because they had few public transport and most were motor cars, and at the 1988 Seoul Games we were also worried because it was an industrial city," he said, adding that the similar worries emerged in the run up to the 2004 Athens games.
