The London Feast’2012

Thanks to the London Olympic organizers for choosing the weekend, fourth weekend of the month which is a two day holiday for me, as the start to the awaited event featuring 26 sports and 36 disciplines.

Opening ceremony was of course a well-organized one as I especially loved the helicopter stunt, depiction of the industrial revolution and the march fast. Indian women players in yellow sarees looked beautiful and cultural. Sushil Kumar got the opportunity to hold the Indian flag and he will of course look forward to march onto the podium one more time in a row.

I’m especially looking forward for the events of Archery, shooting, badminton and tennis for Indian medalists. Overall, I would love to watch each and every event, but I’m very sure I would not be able to. Well, I will like to witness at least the finals of Marathon, 4x100 m relay, 4x400 m relay, badminton, tennis, volley ball, Gymnastics and Hockey. I’ve seen the Archery few hours back in which Indian men team lost to Japanese team. The wrong shots at right time have taken it away from the Indian team. Well, congratulations to the South Korean Archer for the world record holder who is legally blind and could still get through. Believing in oneself magically wins the moments.

With the regular articles in news papers on the upcoming Olympics since last few weeks I could get to know some of the world’s famous athletes eyeing for the gold or a medal. I’m looking forward for inspiring performances and entertaining Olympics.
