Olympics draw to a close

24 08 2008

Hi all

What a brilliant Olympics! Beijing hosted a brilliant Olympics and their closing ceremony was just as good as the opening one.  The last medal ceremony took place as well on the very last day.  But the show was absolutely brilliant!  The torch was extinguished, and the Olympic flag was officially handed over to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson!  There was a short 8 minute section featuring the famous London bus and featured Leona Lewis with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page and David Beckham who kicked a ball into the athletes!

Congratulations goes to Team GB for bringing home 47 medals in which 19 of them were Gold! Now London is officially handed over the Olympics, it is time to get prepared in the next four years to 2012 where the Olympics will happen once again.  Let’s hope the passion and enthusiasm will continue for Team GB in 2012 and bring even more Gold medals home on home soil!
