The opening ceremonies of London Olympics 2012 was held on July 27, 2012 and it was broadcast live in our country very early morning (around past 12 am) of July 28, 2012. London already the Olympic Games in 1908, 1948 and now 2012 and they are the only city that have hosted the Olympics 3x.
I woke up at around 6 am and when I turned the TV at TV5 on the Opening ceremony is already starting. I think it was the Japan delegates that are marching in the stadium. I hurriedly get up and watched it more because of course I don’t want to miss our country’s delegates.
Here is the Philippines’ delegate (only 11 athletes made it on the Olympics)
It’s really exciting to watch the ceremony and even if I’m not an athlete or I’m not physically there to witness it, I got teary eyed and I could feel the excitement there. I’m sure the feeling is much more different.
The Olympics flame
I’ll be following some of the games esp. the swimming, volleyball, archery and gymnastics events.
