The opening ceremony of the 30th Olympic Games

Updated on July 29, 2012

The opening ceremony of the 30th Olympic Games

After waiting 7 long years for the moment to arrival last night 27 July 2012 that moment come. The moment everyone in the UK had been waiting 7 long years for. Everyone in the UK had been waiting to see the start of the opening of the Olympic Games.

Seems so long ago

I can remember where I was on the day it was announced that the UK would host the 30th Olympic Games in 2012. I remember it so well, but it seems so long ago now. Remember thinking how fantastic it would be to have the Olypmic Games here in the UK. The games have been to the UK twice before. I wasn’t around in 1908 the first time they were here or again back in 1948. It’s been a long 64 years waiting for them to return to London. For those taking part it’s a dream come true, a dream that they have had for many years. It’s there time, there time to shine on the world stage. I wish each and everyone who is taking part in the game the very best of luck. A very proud moment to represent your country in the 2012 Olympic Games, being an Olympian.

Next two weeks

For the next two weeks the Olympic Games are home to my country, home for everyone to see, home to inspirer the best out of each and every one who is taking part in the 30th Olympic Games. There will be tears of joy, loses and triumphs, medals to be won. I know with all the running I have done over the years how hard they have trained to be in shape they are. It taken years of training, getting into the best shape possible, to be the best you can be, to give their best, to give all.

Watching it on TV

I didn’t have a ticket to see the opening of the Olympic Games but I wished I did because it was fantastic. I sat at home with friends watching it on TV. It was a Very British opening, a proud moment to be British, a proud night to be British indeed. I’m not sure if everyone around the world got the theme with it being so British, I loved ever moment of it and didn’t want it to end. I am now looking forward to the next 2 weeks, next two weeks of watching something I’ve waited for so long to happen. Something I’m sure which won’t happen again in my life time, not in London at least.

May the games begin of the 30th Olympic Games

Take care and have fun

      I agree, the olympics amazing, not just for London, but the rest of the UK.

      There were some excellent performances all round and the atmosphere provided by the games makers at the venues was brilliant.

      I got hooked on the Olympics on the opening show Friday night. The British are doing a great job hosting the Olympics. The games have been very exciting so far.

      I did not see all of it, but I liked both arrival of the Queen and Atkinson!

      I didn't bother watching it on Friday, but I did watch it on iplayer the next day so I could skip past all the boring bits. I liked the clips about the Queen's arrival, and Rowan Atkinson doing 'Chariot's of fire', but I wasn't interested in much else. I'm not bothering to watch the events either; I find watching sports dull as dirt.

      Yes, it's been a long and edgy wait ... and then on the night of the opening ceremony I wasn't near a TV aaargh! I'm sure I'll catch the clips over the next few days, though. Exciting times to come here in the UK :)
