    A billion (109) is « un milliard » , not « un billion ».

    « un billion » (1012) is « un million de millions ».

    1,000,000,000 = 109 is an American billion and a French « milliard »

    La préparation des jeux olympiques

    6 juillet 2005, Londres est sélectionné pour les jeux olympiques 2012. L’euphorie est de courte durée : le lendemain matin, 52 personnes meurent dans des attentats suici-des dans les transports, à l’heure de pointe. Malgré le deuil, les organisateurs doivent se concentrer sur les travaux. La longue trans-formation d’une zone industrielle désaffec-tée commence dans l’est de Londres. L’idée est de créer un vaste site olympique traversé par des voies navigables, avec des équi-pements sportifs dernier cri. Sur le long terme, le parc devra faire revivre ces quar-tiers défavorisés en créant des milliers d’em-ploi.

    En 2007, le budget des jeux dépasse déjà les onze milliards d’euros, soit quatre fois le montant initial. Au même moment, la crise financière gagne du terrain et les pre-miers ministres successifs se battent pour justi-fier les dépenses publiques nécessaires.

    Les délais de construction sont tenus. À côté d’un stade de quatre-vingt mille pla-ces, un centre aquatique futuriste et un vé-lodrome sortent de terre. Le site dédié au canoë-kayak au nord de Londres est le premier à ouvrir au printemps 2011. Un peu plus tôt, une sculpture sinueuse d’Anish Ka-poor est érigée dans le parc et le paysage autrefois industriel et pollué se métamor-phose. Les structures sont désormais en place et les organisateurs multiplient les compétitions tests pour ne laisser au hasard que les résultats des épreuves et la couleur du ciel.

    Getting ready for the Olympic Games

    On July 6, 2005, London is selected for the 2012 Olympic Games. The euphoria is short-lived: the next day, 52 people die in suicide attacks in public transportation, dur-ing rush hour. Despite the grief, the organiz-ers must concentrate on building. The long transformation of a disused industrial zone starts in East London. The idea is to create a huge Olympic site crossed by navigable riv-ers with state-of-the-art sports facilities. On the long run, the park is supposed to bring these underprivileged neighborhoods back to life by creating thousands of jobs.

    In 2007, the Olympic Games budget already exceeds eleven billion Euros, that is to say four times the initial amount. At the same time, the financial crisis gains ground and the successive prime ministers fight to justify the necessaries public spending.

    The building schedule is respected. Next to a eighty-thousand-seat stadium, a futuristic aquatic center and a bicycle ring are rising from the ground. The site devoted to canoeing in Northern London is the first one to open in the 2011 spring. A bit earlier, a winding sculpture by Anish Kapoor is erected in the park and the former industrial and polluted landscape is (completely) transformed. The structures are set from then on and the organizers multiply competitions in order to leave nothing to chance but sports events results and the color of the sky.
