London 2012: A success that will inspire a generation.
Now the curtain has been drawn on a globally conceived successful Olympic Games held in London, reflection can begin.
We're drawn to thinking about how these amazing athletes achieved their goals. Probably the most striking feature in their commitment is removing distractions so they could focus on what was important to them – performing the best they could in the Olympic Games.
The London 2012 Games were dubbed the ‘friendly Games’ due to hordes of volunteers welcoming the world to stadiums and venues across the country. Volunteers gave up their time and effort in order to help visitors enjoy the spectacle of the events. Armed forces were regarded as firm, but fair, as they greeted you with a smile; but held enough respect to keep the thousands of people in order.
Never mind the ‘friendly games’, these were an Olympics that reaped unparalleled success for the Great British athletes, success that has not been seen in this country for over 100 years. The crowds dominated by British fans shouting and screaming the athletes on to unforeseen success which saw Great Britain finish third in the overall medal table, only behind USA and China, two countries which surpass us greatly in size and population.
The overall success saw highs, and lows, from our first guaranteed medal hope in Mark Cavendish, who enjoyed a successful campaign during the year, only to fall behind an unexpected victor from Kazakhstan. Then our first medal gold also came from an unexpected source, in Helen Glover and Heather Stanning in the woman’s pairs rowing. This was the catalyst which saw Britain achieve 29 golds, 17 silver and 19 bronze medals.
Memorable moments come in many forms, from Mo Farah sprinting down the back straight holding off competition to claim his double Olympic Gold. David Rudisha breaking the world record in the 800m, because he “decided to go for it”. Gemma Gibbons getting comfortably beat in the final of the 78kg Judo final to claim Britain’s first Judo medal in 12 years, then looking up to the sky in tears and mouthing ‘I love you mum’, in memory of her late mother. Jessica Ennis doing what a nation expected from her and claiming gold in the womens heptathlon.
Michael Phelps became the greatest swimmer of all time, Usain Bolt became the greatest sprinter of all time, London 2012 became the greatest modern Olympics of all time?
Inspire a generation, a phrase commonly repeated by commentators and analysts during these Olympics, the billboard slogan which might have just come true.
