Less than three months away to London 2012.


Yes, it’s less than three months away from the world largest sporting event, London 2012 Summer Olympic Games which is going to be held from 27 July to 12 August this year. So, to be exact, it’s 88 days to its much anticipated opening ceremony from now. Another cycle of four years went through so quickly, from the previous 29th edition in Beijing 2008 to the current countdown to 30th edition in London 2012. It’s a great year to London, where eyes of the world would be on this lovely city celebrating the spirit of ‘olympic’ from sports to culture and architecture this year.

This year is also the year of diamond jubilee celebration of Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch of United Kingdom and the Commonwealth realms. It is confirmed that her majesty would be attending the opening and closing ceremonies, in which she would open the games as the head of state. Well, this must be a very great year for her and to the country, which holds double celebrations on this year alone. The atmosphere must be very good by now, with many decorations in relation to the upcoming Olympics are set up all over the city of London. Image below taken from http://www.lhrtimes.com/2012/02/29/queen-elizabeth-ii-to-open-london-2012-olympic/ shows a giant Olympic rings floats over the River Thames with the backdrop of London Tower Bridge as part of the decorations produced for the games.

Back to the Olympic Park which is the main sporting zone for the Olympic Games. Construction of venues have been completed and the progress is now on touching up especially on the interior finishes. However, the whole Olympic Park as of today still appears as a huge construction zone while the organizers had strongly informed that the work is on schedule and everything would be done in time before the start of the games. Well, I guess they still have a lot of works to do, like removing all the construction materials, cranes and equipments and also heavy landscaping which is essential to beautify the Olympic Park. Image below taken from the games’ official website shows the current condition of Olympic Park in an aerial view:

The aspect of this edition of games that is being complimented is not on the scale of the games organized this time, but is on the sustainability measures applied into many areas of the games. Many venues built for the games will be demolished or reduced in capacity and size to save cost and eliminate heavy burden on maintenance in the future. The Olympic Park alone would be transformed into a whole new neighbourhood for the people of London after the games. Before the organizers picked the land for Olympic Park, that plot of land is something like an abandoned zone in the city where no one would look for. But now, it is transformed into the centre of the largest sporting event this year, and in the future, to be turned into a whole new beneficial neighbourhood to the people.

It’s less than three months away to London 2012. The city is now on its way to get prepared to welcome the world to witness and experience the games like never before very soon!
