London 2012 Olympics

London is hosting their third Olympics. Pretty amazing isn't it.  In this majestic city there is going to be marvellous venues holding the events for the Olympics. There will be a range of venues, some historic but some new.    

The last time London held the Olympics was in 1948. In the 1948 London Olympic games, Fanny Blankers-Koen a Dutch mother of two is best known for winning four gold medals. Sadly three Olympic games were cancelled in the past because of World War l & ll.

This years Olympics is going to have some returning champions who won medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In Beijing the USA won the most medals. The reason for these champions returning is because they want to defend their titles. Michael Phelps is one of them. He won 16 medals in a single games for swimming. Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and is also the fastest man in the world.

I really can’t wait until the olympics start. And when it does all of my support is going out to all of the New Zealand athletes
