It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since the 2012 Summer Olympics in 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. There were so many great times during those games; from the opening ceremony to the athletes who won gold medals to the great stories of where the athletes came from.

So, I am looking forward to seeing what the open ceremony is going to be at the 2012 Summer Games. And if you ever wondered what sports are in the Summer Olympics, here is a list from wikipedia.com. (26 sports and a total of 39 disciplines):

I’ll be checking all different sites for information on the games.

Best of luck to all the athletes and London. Looking forward to watching with the work the 2012 Summer Olympics.

The Olympic motto is “Citius, Altius, Fortius.” These three Latin words mean “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.” Baron de Coubertin borrowed the motto from Father Henri Martin Dideon, the headmaster of Arcueil College in Paris. Father Dideon used the motto to describe the great achievements of the athletes at his school. Coubertin felt it could be used to describe the goals of great athletes all over the World.
