The Opening Ceremony of both the Olympics and Paralympics were amazing and a joy to watch, and everyone expected the Closing Ceremony to be just as good too, but there was some disappointment. It seemed a bit too much commercial, especially with bands like One Direction making an appearance, which really wasn’t needed for an event such as the Olympics.
The Paralympics are going well, and will soon also be coming to an end where there will be a closing ceremony once again, however this time not only are the Paralympic games coming to an end, the Olympics are finally over in London, ready to move onto Rio. Of course the flame was officially passed over at the end of the Closing Ceremony of the main games, but we like to think the Paralympics are just as important, so therefore to us, and millions of others, the games are not quite complete just yet, not whilst there are still medals to be won.
The Suck My Trend team were lucky enough to watch the Opening Ceremony from Stratford Place, next door to the Olympic Park as we were attending an event. The fireworks were amazing at the end of the ceremony and we moved to the roof terrace to watch them flying up all around us, and not just from the stadium either. We hope to see another big amazing display for the Closing Ceremony, although we won’t be able to watch it from a unique close up position once again.
Olympic fever will soon be coming to an end, and we hope that the games are still being watched by millions all around the world, and that everyone is enjoying them. The events such as the blind long jump take an incredible amount of skill, and to have 80,000 people completely silent in the stadium for these events is also amazing.
