In my 2 years here in SG, I witnessed 2 major sporting events that has a special impact in this country. The World Cup and London Olympics. I love the sense of importance, support and excitement that emanates in this place. It\’s hyped up to promote the country\’s genuine interest on reaching for the GOLD.
My fond memory on watching this was the 1992 Barcelona, Spain Summer Olympics. The time that Bea Lucero will be representing the country for Taekwondo at siya ang pinakasikat sa batch na yun. There was about more than 50 delegates to that said batch. After them, next few Olympics was a blur. It only touched my senses again during Michael Phelps historic Beijing medal sweep.
Now that, I\’m here in another country, I still can\’t believe am providing time in watching ANY game that I could come across. Too bad I missed the opening ceremony but, my friend Badzy who\’s based in London together with her colleagues experienced it first hand. That is so cool! They were even featured in TV Patrol.
There are a lot to see in the Olympics aside from the sports.
1. Awesome and larger that life cameras and telelens. Here\’s a peek from the Canon Gear room.
3. Iphoneography at its best. Olympic Smartphone photoblog by Dan Chung.
4. The bodies to die for…The Olympic winning body for myself and the ripped bodies of these swimmers. I just love looking at their Latissimus Dorsi.

5. Many hotel have lowered their rates for the Olympic season. But its supposed to increase especially with this kind of events. Right?!
For the next few days we\’ll just have to wait and see who will be the Olympic champion. Lets keep watching and good luck to everyone.
Never say die, Team Philippines.
