2012 Olympics…Go Team USA!!
The 2012 Summer Olympics are being held in London this time around and start in just a short couple of weeks. They are being held from July 27th through August 12thand I could not be more excited for them to start. The Olympic Opening Ceremony show is named ‘Isles of Wonder’ and the worldwide broadcast will commence at 9pm. People from all corners of the world will be tuned in to watch the lighting of the torch as well as watching their favorite summer sports and athletes compete for a medal over those next 17 days!
There are 26 medal sports on the Olympic program for the 2012 London Games which include everything from swimming to basketball to cycling to track and field. I am sure everyone has their certain favorite summer Olympic sport to watch and mine are definitely Gymnastics, Volleyball and Diving. I am also looking forward to watching a notable new event that has been added to the lineup since the 2008 Beijing Games which is Women’s Boxing in three different weight classes. Which sports are you most excited to watch at the 2012 London Games? In 1996, the Summer Olympics were held right here in our own backyard of Atlanta, GA. It was absolutely great having them held here in the United States especially right here in our own city! Everyone I know to this day still has an olympic t-shirt or some sort of memorabilia commemorating the 1996 Atlanta Summer Games. It was a very special year for the city of Atlanta and its citizens. Now I think we are all just waiting for the Olympics to come back to the USA again! I hope everyone enjoys watching the 2012 Summer Olympics! Go Team USA!!
