Riverbank Arena 2, London Olympics 2012

Another view of that great match between Germany and Australia in the semi-final of the men’s hockey at the London Olympics 2012. And that is an airship in the skies.

It was a high quality game, Australia were twice ahead, but Germany’s teamwork and fitness eventually prevailed and they ended up 4-2 victors, and later went on to win gold, retaining the Olympic title.

The quality of the pitch was outstanding, enabling such skillful hockey, but the colours attracted much attention. it’s a shame that this arena is merely a temporary one, and that it is only being used for this Olympic hockey tournament before being dismantled.


Passion in sport

Cricket is a long, boring game played by people all wearing white clothes.

If you substitute the word boring with the word passionate then this statement is correct.
