2012 London Summer Olympics


The 2012 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXX Olympiad, are an international multi-sport event, that will be held in London, England from July 27 to August 12, 2012. This will be the third time England is host of the Olympic Games (1908, 1948).

Over 13,000 athletes are expected to compete in nearly 400 events in 33 sports. First, Second and Third places will be rewarded after every single event with a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal.

The Olympic Games take place every four years in different locations all around the world, selected after a long bidding process among the participant countries.


An important fact to notice about this upcoming Summer Olympics, is it will be the first time since 1936 that official sports events are eliminated from the schedule, specifically Baseball and women's Softball (first introduced in 1996). Perhaps, women's boxing will be introduced instead to schedules in three different categories for the first time in Olimpycs.

In addition, another curious detail was the special legal permission required for shooting; since Great Britain has strict "gun-control laws", the goverment wil be required to provide equipment for each individual in this event category.

Although troubles in London, everything has been peformed as scheduled. As example of it, on May 10 the torch was lit in Olympia, Greece (Where the ancient Olympic Games use to take place), and also back on May 17 2012 the torch was handed to the organizers of Summer Olympics: event held in Athens.

From that point forward the flame will relay around brithist isles until it can reach the Olympic Stadium; where Summer Olympics will officially begin on July, 27.

Also in an event held in London back on July, 2011, the Olympic Medals were shown; this ones are the biggest medals up to date in Olympic Games with a diameter of 85mm and a weight of 400g.


In order; Silver, Gold and Bronze medals.


2012 Olympics will take place mostly in the Olympic Park, a sports venue built to held Summer Games 2012, in the East of London. The complex contains six different sports venues, and also a 40 floor tower to host Atheltes during the competition. After olympics games are completed the tower will become residential apartments and the venues will be used by local teams.
