The London 2012 Olympic Games have definitely not disappointed. Full of emotion, tears, delight, inspiration and truly amazing performances it’s been great watching it all. I think this is one of the few things that can genuinely bring together people from all over the world to celebrate and enjoy the same thing. The games give a sense of unity that is so global, you can’t escape it and, indeed, Nelson Mandela wasn’t kidding when he said that ‘sport has the power to change the world.’ This time last year London was in the headlines for rioting and looting – all the wrong reasons, but now, for the past two weeks, the world has looked to London as a place of celebration, hope and truly great sporting moments.
