Of course comparisons with the last of the Olympics held in Beijing. But London promises to stage an elaborate games of itself. The President of the organizing committee and the other staff not only promise to deliver an exceptional sporting action throughout but also perform to win the most number of medals.

India is sending its own troupe of contenders in full hopes to bring back more medals than the last Olympics. From archery, to badminton and wrestling, there are high and hopeful chances for the country’s athletes.

The London streets were overflowing with excessive traffic and jams that extended for hours and hours but the last few days have been rather organized. The athletes have arrived, the locals are avoiding the hot spots and diversions seem to be finally working.

The countdown ends here.
