TO GO WITH Asiad-2010,ADVANCER by Robert Saiget (FILES) This file photo taken on July 21, 2010 shows a television journalist being filmed in front of the Pearl River with the venue where the opening ceremony of the 16th Asian Games will be held in the background in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou. China's booming southern metropolis of Guangzhou is gearing up for next month's Asian Games -- the biggest sporting extravaganza the nation has seen since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. After seven years of preparations, the city at the heart of China's economic miracle has reinvented itself for the November 12-27 spectacle and is hoping the event will help transform it into one of Asia's elite cities.
