The London 2012 Olympic Games

Aug 16

the olympic logo2012 has been a very busy year for Great Britain, we celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and quite recently held the London 2012 Olympic Games. I know the Olympics have sadly some to an end, but I think a massive event like the Olympics deserves a mention! It all kicked off with the Olympic Opening Ceremony which was truly incredible to watch. The ceremony was shortly followed by many events such as rowing, diving, athletics, cycling, tennis and my favourite event, Gymnastics.

Team GB did an amazing job this year, ending up 3rd on the medal table, winning an incredible total of 65 medals, 29 of which were Gold!! They definitely did us proud.

Luke Campbell is just one of our gold medallists, who won gold in boxing. Luke is from Hull, which is where my grandad, cousins, auntie and uncle live, and is also where my dad was born. Not only that, but my dad was born on Hessle Road which is where Luke is from! Also, Samantha Murray who won a modern pentathlon silver medal for Great Britain in the final event of the London 2012 Olympic Games, is from Clitheroe, which is literally 5 minutes away from where I live and I also go to school there aswell! So of course, we were very happy when they won us a gold and silver medal! Overall, the Olympic Games was amazing and I am proud of all of our athletes.
