China's Olympic legacy remains idle

Dubbed the most expensive Olympic games in history, many venues used in the Beijing games of 2008 now remain empty.

    London is about to start the one-year countdown to next year's summer Olympic Games.

    But in China, which hosted the event in 2008, many of its multi-million dollar facilities sit idle, despite government assurances that they would be put to good use.
