Winners of the men's marathon collect their medals
Uganda's Stephen Kiprotich won gold, Kenya's Abel Kirui took silver and Kenya's Wilson Kipsang Kiprotich collecetd the bronze - the final medals of the London 2012 Olympics.
Fantastic Games, but in My Opinion they should not extinguish the flame and end the Olympic Games until the Parra Olympics are over too, the spectacular finally to the UNITED KINGDOM's 2012 games was a spectacular Insult to all the disadvantaged people who are about to hold a SEPARATE event…
We are all in it together; Well, except you that is..
I HAVE LIVED IN SPAIN FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS AND HAVE WATCHED AS THE UK HAS SUNK LOWER AND LOWER IN ALMOST EVERYTHING - THE LIST OF PROBLEMS IS ENDLESS BUT FOR THE PAST 3 WEEKS THE BRITISH PEOPLE HAVE AT LAST STOOD UP AND SHOWED THE WORLD THAT WE ARE CERTAINLY NOT FINISHED AND YOU GUYS PUT ON THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH (PROBABLY THE BEST THERE WILL EVER BE ) - THE BEST THING ABOUT IT WAS THAT IT LOOKED EFFORTLESS - EVERYTHING WENT OFF ON TIME IN THE STATE OF THE ART VENUES - PERFECT ORGANIZATION - OUR ATHLETES PERFORMED SUPERBLY - IF I WAS A JAPANESE BUSINESSMAN THINKING ABOUT INVESTING IN EUROPE I KNOW WHERE MY MONEY WOULD GO AFTER THIS !!
WELL DONE SEB AND ALL HIS TEAM - ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC !!
If you want a glimpse at the real legacy, scroll to the top of this page and check out the Mc Donalds advert. nothing like a junk food multi-national to inspire youngsters to take up sport. Watch them continue to cynically link sporting asperations to their junk. Wonder how many big macs mo farah tucked into to get in shape. Next olympics will probably end with the mc marathon. Shame they've banned tabbacco advertising, they'd have been ideal.
Absolutely amazing closing ceremony. I'm so proud to be British
Well done everyone.
But on a serious note, absolutely amazing 16 days of sport, every last Olympian can be proud of themselves, incredible job to everyone involved in it, truly makes me proud to be British and will live long in my memory :D
Bit worried after watching Beijing Olympics, "How can we follow that"? But no worries the opening and closing ceremony were fab, and the athletes and games on a whole did the country proud.
Lennon tribute was amazing, awesome tribute for an awesome man, but, I dont know how he personally would have liked it, John after all was John, his own man with his own ideas, but a fitting tribute.
London did the country proud as did all of TEAM GB! not to mention the excellent volunteers from all over GB ...WELL DONE!!
