London 2012: the Weird World of the Olympics – in Pictures

I am not a sports fan but the beginning of Olympics does connect me with sports tightly. Every night, I will turn on TV to watch those exciting games and cheer for my favorite athletes.  Congratulations to Sun Yang who is regarded as “Liu Xiang in swimming pool”. The day before yesterday, he won the gold medal for 1500 meters freestyle and broke the world record either.


As to me, there are many exciting moments during the competition. It shocks me a lot when Sun jumps the gun. He must be frightened for his carelessness so as to splash water heavily after winning his game. Competition is a tough thing. It is the only chance for some athletes to win his honor. But for many persons, they have to farewell their favorite career forever. It is so cruel that every athlete has to spare no effort to compete. Their figures are recorded in pictures and I believe they won’t be forgotten by others.

London Olympic shows us a banquet of fierce competition. On the other hand, a lot of interesting moments on the field will bring us different scenery. Now, let’s enjoy part of those amusing photos quoting from the guardian.

The Olympics would be even more fun if competitors like Jennet Saryyeva of Turkmenistan were able to wear smiley swimming caps during the races
