OPENING CEREMONY OF THE OLYMPICS 2012
On Friday, 27th of July billions of people from all over the world watched the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Gr.Britain. It was a special night signed by the Oscar awarded director Danny Boyle and it was titled "Isles of Wonder".
Some of the most famous Brits took part in the ceremony. To name a few:
David Bekam who brought the Olympic flame to the stadium crossing the Thames river in a speed boat ...
Daniel Kreg (James Bond) and the Queen herself played in a short film (that was awesome)
Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) had a little funny sketch, ...
Paul McCartney sang a couple of songs ...
Another comment I would like to make is about Jacques Rogge's ( International Olympic Committee President ) statement which he made during his speech at the opening ceremony:
for the Athens, Greece 2004 Olympic Games?!!! People across the world are well aware that this unique celebration of sport and civilization started out in Greece nearly 3,000 years ago. Such a mistake is unacceptable and historically ignorant, if not provocative. He should retract that comment and apologise for the "blunder".
Despite the undisputed fact that the Olympics were born in Greece
they belong to all humanity and athletes from all over the world come to compete with their fellow athletes to decide who is best. They compete as equals, with equal opportunities and obligations.
I wish the thousands of athletes from all over the world to compete in honor, to enjoy it, and to make their dream come true and bring home the supreme distinction, the Olympic medal. Good luck!
