The London 2012 Olympics are now officially open.
Who watched the Opening Ceremony in the early hours of Saturday morning here in Australia? It was a bit early for us, but we did catch some of it from 7am onwards and also looked at many photos and video online. It looked like it was a great start to the Games, what a great atmosphere it must be in and around London at the moment. And who knew the Queen would ever be a Bond Girl?
What did you think of the Australian team uniform? We thought it looked very smart and modern. Our flag bearer Lauren Jackson did a great job, she really got into the spirit of it. And the worst team uniform? We think Germany takes the title. What was the German designer thinking with baby pink and blue puffer jackets? It looks like they are off to the snow for the Winter Olympics, instead of the Summer Olympics! We loved checking out photos of all the different uniforms.
Can't wait for the events to get started now. Some of our favourites are swimming, athletics, cycling, diving, gymnastics, rowing and weightlifting. Let the Games begin!
Good Luck to all our Aussie athletes. We'll be cheering you on here at Adult Costume Shop.
