The Olympics 2012

“Woow” it is a step closer to the national and the world's biggest sporting event the Olympics. This year will be the 30th anniversary for the modern Olympic games, this year's Olympics will be held in the capital city of England. (London)

The  Olympics first started in Olympia, Greece in the year 776 BC,  and every four years it will be held in a capital city around the world. 30 years ago a man named Baron Pierre De Coubertin   the founder of the modern Olympics and also the founder of the Olympic flag.

I can’t wait until these awesome Olympians battle it out for the top 3 medals and also to represent their countries. The Olympian I will follow this year is Usain Bolt in the 100m/200m and the relay team.

Olympians Good Luck and Go Hard!!!!

The Olympic Rings

Pierre De Coubertin was the founder of the modern Olympic games also the founder of the Olympic flag.  On the Olympic flag there were five rings but six colours that represents the five continents.  These colours represents these continents.

-The Blue Represents Europe
-The Green Represents Australia (Oceania)
-The Yellow Represents Asia
-The Red Represents America
-The Black Represents Africa

Also the Olympic flag means in different ways of goodwill, peace and truth. At the opening and closing ceremonies, the torch is lit from Olympia, Greece and transported to the hosting country ready for the opening ceremonies but also at the hosting country they will also rise the Olympic flag as the torch is transported.
