The closing ceremony saw the flag handed over to newly elected Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who did not, as some feared he might, drop the flag or make any random comments about Chinese people. The baton has now been passed on to London and the Olympics in 2012. Let's hope we can be even more successful in London and that our Olympics can be even better than the one just past. Who knows in 2012 I could be working at the Olympics as a translator!
I would like to congratulate all the British Sportsmen and women who won medals and those who took part. I consider myself to have had an active day if I have to run to the tube in the morning let alone training as these competitors do each and everyday!
