GREAT ATMOSPHERE

GREAT ATMOSPHERE

It's the closing seconds. The score is 60-56. The crowd is going crazy. Which Olympic final is this, you ask?
Hardly. It's a group stage basketball game between two countries little known for their basketball _ Tunisia and Nigeria.
The 12,000-seat venue is at least 95 percent full and the crowd has been raucous throughout the mid-morning game. As the game ends, the players of both teams are given a standing ovation.
The next game, Australia vs. Brazil, is a similar affair. There is constant clapping and cheering and the noise reverberates around the arena. The public address announcer organizes the fans, though it's not like they need much encouragement; the fans do the wave and stomp and clap to "We will rock you."
If there's one thing London organizers promised, it was passionate fans. At the basketball venue, they're definitely delivering.
