The Olympics: London 2012

With the Olympics just around the corner, excitement is starting to mount up as the prospect of London hosting the games is finally dawning us Brits.

The opening ceremony that will take place on Friday will show the world what London has to offer, hopefully, it will show London in a positive light.

After years of planning, building and organising, the Olympic venues are finally ready to hold the world's best sporting names, from Usain Bolt to Our own home grown hero, Jessica Ennis.

Personally, I can't wait for the Olympics. I can't wait to devour over the male athletes huge muscles and watch numerous Brits gain gold medals. However, I have some questions I'm still unsure of the answers:
•will Yohan Blake beat Usain Bolt and repeat what he did at the Jamaican trials?
•can Mo Farah gain another athletics title?
•will Jessica Ennis keep her title and prove to the world what Britain has to offer?
•can Victoria Pendleton face her fears and gain victory in the velodrome?
•how many medals will British Chris Hoy win on his bike?
•will Rebecca Addlington live up to expectations and perform as well as she did in Beijing?
•has Michael Phellps got what it takes to win multiple medals in the pool?
•will Great Britain do their country proud and come top of the medals table?

All the questions are yet unanswered, but soon will be in the coming weeks as the Olympics take place. Let's hope the British team does us proud!!!!
