Olympics 2012

Standard

As the Olympics are just down the road from where I live, I am quite excited, even though I am not really into sports. Still our area has seen a regeneration and it is a nicer place to live.

From the new Westfields Shopping centre you can have a beautiful view to the stadium and the whole Olympic area.

The Olympic Flame is all over Britain and also in my area!

…and I have just seen it……wow it was great, fantastic atmosphere, everybody was happy, smiley, laughing and talkative. Coca Cola bottles, water bottles were given out free, so were flags and frisbees for the children. Music was played and  the police were happy  and cheerful. That is how the community should always be.  All in all a great experience!

Riah Biscette , a local 15 year old carried it through our streets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now the appropriate music for the Olympics from Immediate music:

An epic and inspiring track from Immediate‘s surprise release album “Epic Olympic Dreams”, available from iTunes and Amazon. “Salvation For A Proud Nation” is also on Immediate’s “Trailerhead: Saga” album.
You’ve heard this track in many trailers – The Aviator, The Guardian, Borat, Flyboys. The track was also featured as part of NBCs Opening for the 2004 Athens Olympics, where it garnered an Emmy Award nomination for composers Yoav Goren and Jeffrey Fayman.
