The Olympics have come and gone once more. Who would have thought that we would pull it off with only a few minor embarrassments. Okay, so we managed to raise the wrong nation's flag once, and we let an over excited nutter march around the track with the Indian team during the opening ceremony. All in all though, it went off better than expected.
New champions emerged, cheered on by fanatical supporters.
Whilst for others, life long dreams were shattered.
Unfortunately, there were some nations that once again failed to grasp the Olympic spirit and once again let themselves down. The German official giving the Nazi salute at the opening ceremony did not go unnoticed. At least they weren't as offensive as they were in Beijing!
