One year today the London 2012 Olympics will be starting!
In 12 months’ time the Olympics and Paralympics will be kicking-off from the wonder of the Opening Ceremony to the thrills of the sporting action.
The London 2012 Olympic Games will feature 26 sports, which break down into 39 disciplines including Rowing and Athletics, to Cycling and Swimming, Gymnastics and more.
The Olympic Flame goes back to ancient Olympic Games in Greece and is transferred from one torchbearer to another across the UK before the Opening Ceremony in July. It marks the start of the Games and is said to represent the spreading message of peace, unity and friendship. It has been a part of modern Olympic Games since 1928 and according to legend the torch’s flame has been kept burning ever since the first Olympics.
The Olympic Flame is travelling up and down the country during a 70-day Olympic Torch Relay to enable local communities to shine a light on the best the area has to offer from breath-taking landscapes to dynamic urban areas.
