A Day At The London 2012 Olympics
— Aug 13 2012
Here at Azzura Charters we were fortunate enough to have tickets to the final athletics evening at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday. We had an amazing day in the Olympic Park followed by a spectacular evening in the Stadium, it really was a day of memories we will never forget.
The Olympic Park was brought to life by Entertainers, Musicians and Olympic Volunteers with a smiley face and cheerful "have a great day, enjoy the games". It was so nice to see so many people supporting their countries through their choice of dress,
Entering the Olympic Stadium was breath taking, it felt so spacious and airy and yet I felt really close to the track even though I was in the upper tier. The atmosphere in the stadium was incredible there was so much support for all the athletes. The highlight of the evening was Mo Farrah winning gold in the 5000 metres, the crowd support was immense during the race and as Mo crossed the winning line the stadium just lit up, it was a moment that brought tears to my eyes.
Following the success of another Gold Medal for team GB, we saw the Women's USA team take Gold in the 4 x 400m relay, Keshorn Walcott of Trinidad and Tobago take Gold in the Mens Javelin and Anna Chicherova of Russia take Gold in the Women's High Jump.
Then came the final athletics event of the games... the Men's 4 x 100m relay, team GB were sadly disqualified from the final so I decided to support team Jamaica and cheer on Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt and see them take a new world record, it was an amazing end to a superb day.
Until Rio 2016...
