London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony is Tomorrow [VIDEO]

The 2012 Olympics in London officially start Friday (tomorrow), with the opening ceremonies, and I for one, am thrilled! Catch all the action on NBC who is covering the Olympics this year. I love everything about the the Olympics, and I always have. I even love to watch curling during the Winter Olympics. Yes, I’m serious. Curling takes skill people!

I can’t wait to see Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh dominate the women’s beach volleyball event, Michael  Phelps win gold in the swimming event and U.S. gymnastic teams bring it! Of course there are tons of sports and competition to enjoy: tennis, basketball, equestrian, cycling, canoe, football, fencing, hockey, rowing, sailing, badminton, boxing, weightlifting, diving, judo, you get the picture.

I think the Olympics is a great thing for our kids to watch, because they learn so much by watching these athletes. They see the drive, commitment, perseverance and determination that these athletes have,  and they can apply that to their own lives.

The featured image I used for this story of the  London 2012 Olympic medals, were designed by British artist David Watkins. The Olympic medals disk circular form is a metaphor for the world. The front of the medal always depicts the same imagery at the summer Games – the Greek Goddess of Sport – ‘Nike’ – stepping out of the depiction of the Parthenon and arriving in London.

Log on here for the schedule of events.

Check out the video below of this years’ Olympic Theme. Let the games begin!
