London 2012: Looking Back

A recap of the London 2012 Olympic Games and a way to recapture the magic and glory of the XXX Olympiad. From the Opening Ceremony to the gold medal winners, the athletes to the venues in which they competed, the medal tallies to the glittering legacy of the Games that will live on all the way to Rio 2016... I felt particularly inspired by the London 2012 Olympics, so much so that I wanted to write something special to remember it by. Hope you enjoy it!

On July 6th 2005 at the 117th IOC session in Singapore, it was announced that the city of London would host the XXX Olympiad in 2012, making it the first city to ever host the Games three times.

Good news, London!

Good news, London!                                                                    

The Olympics are back!

The Olympics are back!

To light up the pool,

The field and the track

Is gold round your neck

 

Good news, London!

The Olympics are back!

The excitement’s enough

To cause a heart attack

 

The crushing defeat

The will to win

Four years in the making

Let the Games begin…

It took such a considerable amount of effort, determination, focus and vision over the following years leading up to London 2012, what with there being a demand for new stadiums and centres to be built for the event and all the training which the estimated 10,5000 athletes had to endure.
