My favorite moments of the Olympics and Paralympics

Some people asked me what my favorite moments of the Olympics and Paralympics have been.

With so many weeks of events that’s a tough question to answer. I loved the spectators who cheered on every athlete no matter what team they supported. I loved the cheery volunteers. Of course, I loved the athletes. The venues were set up perfectly, too.

But I think if I had to pick 3 favorite moments these would be the ones:

Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake fighting it out over the Olympic 100m and 200m. This includes us “storming” the US Fan House to see the 200m final and us just making it inside and to the right TV channel with seconds left to the start. The story will later be told as “An Australian, a German and an American are trying to watch the London 2012 200m final…”.

Oscar Pistorius and Alan Oliveira fighting it out over the Paralympic T44 100m, 200m and 400m. Being in the stadium to see the 200m final, the BIG UPSET, experiencing the stunned and quiet crowd as Alan Oliveira wins this distance unexpectedly, was priceless. I am happy for Oscar Pistorius winning the T44 400m final. I am sure we will see and hear more of both athletes in Rio 2016.

Spectators giving a standing ovation as David Smith, GB Paralympic Team, enters the arena for the Boccia gold medal match. Pattaya Tadtong from Thailand ends up winning the match. Then, after the match is over, the crowd gives a standing ovation to both athletes.

I’ll leave you with a kaleidoscope of images from inside the Olympic Park during the past 6 weeks.

  1. Great pics! Very impressed (and jealous!) by how much of the Games you managed to see – I made it to four events at the Olympics and four at the Paralympics, but wish I could have seen more – such a wonderful time to be in London
