London Olympic games.
The 2012 Summer Olympic games take place in London nowadays . The games started on July, 27 and will last until August, 12. It is well known that the Olympic games took place in London for the third time.
The opening ceremony was quite scandalous. An Indian student Madhura Nagendra went along with the Indian team. “… the mystery woman had brazenly gatecrashed the party, raising security concerns and adding to the anger over India’s blink-and-miss appearance on global TV screens”. The main problem in the case concerned security issues. How did she manage to walk with the athletes being unnoticed? Fortunately everything was okay. She simply wanted to support the Indian team.
Today the leading country is China. Chinese athletes have taken 34 gold medals up to date. The total number of the medals the Chinese have won is 73. It is hard to believe but over 25 years ago the situation was totally different. Xu Haifeng was the first Chinese athlete who won a gold medal for China in 1984 during the Los Angeles Olympic games.
On the second place is the United States. American sportsmen won 70 medals including 30 gold medals. The third place belongs to the Great Britain. Thus British athletes won 48 medals including 22 gold medals. The results are impressing indeed.
Yesterday it became known that seven Cameroonian athletes left the Olympic village. The reason? Supposedly they decided to stay in Great Britain. It is said that probably Cameroonian sportsmen do not want to come back home for economic reasons. It is also said that this practice is widespread among Cameroonian sportsmen who decide not to come back to Cameroon. David Ojong, the head of the team says, “What began as rumor has finally turned out to be true. Seven Cameroonian athletes who participated at the 2012 London Olympic Games have disappeared from the Olympic Village”.
