Olympics Games In London

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad, are scheduled for July 27th to August 12, 2012 in London, England.  London will become the first city to host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948.

The countries that are expected to take part in the London 2012 Olympics:
The Olympic Committee expects over 200 nations to take part in 300 events in London. The Paralympic Games will include 140 nations.

The 2012 Summer Olympics will showcase the best athletes in the world in an array of sports including:
  • Archery
  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Water Polo
  • Volleyball
  • Track and Field
  • Rowing
  • Gymnastics
 ... and many more.

The summer Olympic Games are held every four years at various locations throughout the world. The games will attract visitors from across the globe and London's preparation is in the final stages.

Have you ever been to any Olympic Game? I have not and would love to find out how you felt. Please let me know.

The Centerpiece - London Olympic Stadium
The main stadium will be the London Olympic Stadium, located at Marshgate Lane in Stratford, London. It  will be the showcase of the Olympic Games with both the opening and closing ceremonies held here. The stadium will seat 80,000 people.

Located in the southern section of Olympic Park and surrounded by waterways on three sides, the stadium will appear to be an island. Participants will have to cross bridges to get to the stadium, dramatically improving security.

I think the emotion that goes on when you are there watching it, must be amazing. I would love to go one day.

For sure I will be watching on TV.
Stay tuned to my blog however ... the next Olympics Games will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016.
