The London Olympics 2012 opening ceremony was relatable. We’ve seen our favorite writers and characters in literature and their colossal contribution as well as the authentic music that resonates classic. They enacted the story of how Britain became Great that it is today. Not only was it visually appearing, but the extravagance was in the familiarity of their ceremony.
Sports can bring the world closer. In the biggest sporting event, the world tuned in for the sports we love, for the athletes representing us and for the parade of countries with fancy names. People from different background and budget have the same four years of preparation for this competition. It was a thrill to see how they would amount against each other.
Not all the sports in the Olympics are known to us but we still watch it. After watching these sports and seeing the schedule of the rest of the 2012 Olympics, there is a certain spirit in me that was enflamed too. Suddenly, these sports looked incentive and I’d want to learn the skills in playing it.
Equestrian. The art of horse riding. I’ve tried horse riding before and it was easy; but maybe it was an overestimation because the horse just walked around. I never get to make him run no matter how hard I imitate a horse’s sound in effort to talk to him. And yeah, I want a photo of myself in costume while riding a horse too.
Sailing. I thought sailing was just for relaxation and getaway off the city. I didn’t live near the coast and I would like to check this out as I expand my skills to the sea – surfing and diving as well.
Beach Volleyball. Whenever I go to the beach, I do nothing. Those are great times but I can nest some excitement in it too. It’ll be fun to hit and smash something.
