On the 27th of July, 2012 something wonderful will begin; something that really does only tend to occur once in a life time.
The London 2012 Olympic Games will begin, right here on our own land. The games will then continue for an exciting 16 days before coming to an end on the 12th of August 2012. Nevertheless, the Olympic games spirit will then carry on towards the Paralympic games, beginning on the 29th of August before coming to an end on the 9th of September.
The Olympic games have only been held twice previously here in London; Firstly in 1908, and then for the second time in 1948. So yes, this country have waited an incredible 64 years for this moment to arrive again! Meaning, we all certainly have a right to make the most of it, not only taking pride in the hard-working athletes participating for Great Britain, but to all unite together and enjoy this very special period of time; of which I hope will go down in history, as one of the greatest Olympic games ever.
The Olympics are probably one of the few times that 205 nations from around the globe will come together, however don’t let me fool you with my togetherness speech- I’m still hoping that Great Britain take a lot of the gold medals. And I think we have a great chance (well I hope). There’s Rebecca Adlington, Tom Daly, and Chris Hoy to name a few of the unbelievable talents, which will be showcasing London to the entire world!
Don’t forget these Olympics are taking place. Put yourself in this scenario, 40 years down the line; you’re sat with your own Grandchild, preparing to watch the Olympics of 2052, and they say to you how they wish they would do another Olympic Games in Great Britain, and they question you and envy you for having the chance to experience such a wonderful thing. But there’s a problem; you can’t remember it because you were either too busy shopping, or partying or whatever. You can’t really remember to be honest because what ever it was, it wasn’t that important, but you regret it.
Don’t give yourself the chance to regret. Call me a bore, call me sad but it’s true.
It’s a once in a life time, so sit back and enjoy every minute of the London 2012 Olympic games, and watch as the Great gets put back into Great Britain.
