Richmond celebrates 1000 days until 2010 Games

May, 20 2007 - 10:20 AM

RICHMOND - With exactly 1000 days to go until the opening of the 2010 Games, the Olympic bug is spreading in Richmond. About 500 people had their picture taken Saturday with the 2006 Olympic torch to mark the milestone at the site of the new Richmond Oval.

The Oval itself is quickly rising above its surroundings on River Road. The first massive roof span will be installed next month by a specialized crane, shipped from Japan. City spokesperson Ted Townsend says the foundation on the first level of the Oval is almost completely poured, and work has already started on the second and third levels.

He says the $178-million project is on time for its fall 2008 opening.
