Olympicene molecule

There was even a special molecule made for the London Olympics 2012, a group of five carbon rings bound together (based on the new wonder material, graphene), and named of course: olympicene.

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.

It will soon be Olympic year, and the next Olympics will be in London. The Olympic stadium has been completed and now all that remains is the landscaping around the Olympic Park.

A great deal of money and resources has been spent on the Olympics, and it is hoped that the legacy is wisely and widely used.
