It is the first day of the Olympics and it is trending all over the web, TV and radio. Google has taken full advantage of this by creating specially designed images as their Google Doodles on their homepage. Over the entire Olympic period we will be gathering a collection of the very best Google Doodles.
27/08/2012 – Yesterday the doodle saw a line up of Olympic athletes holding each letter. Including a footballer, a swimmer, a runner, a javelin thrower and a fencer. It was just in time for the opening ceremony and would have been seen by millions who used Google.
28/07/2012 – An archery inspired doodle of a woman aiming at a target which is an O.
29/07/2012 – A swimming and diving inspired doodle, getting ready to see the hopeful Rebecca Adlington. She is in the swimming final and she is a great chance for Team GB to receive their first medal of the Olympics.
30/07/2012 – Fencing
31/07/2012 – The Google doodle for today is the rings from the gymnastics event. We like this one because we want to celebrate the bronze medal that the men’s Team GB won yesterday. We also like the Elvis quiff and quirky moustache this character has.
