Paralympics Closing Ceremony

September 10th, 2012

I saw the whole Paralympics Closing Ceremony yesterday – and wow, it definitely was a Coldplay-Party! The only thing that really disappointed me at the Olympics was the fact that not a single Coldplay song was played either during the opening or closing ceremonies. The latter even was titled “A Symphony of British Music”, how is this possible without Coldplay?! I really don’t get it.

So I was very happy when they finally appeared on my TV screen, and not for one song only but a whole 15-song set. I loved every second and I don’t think I can pick a favourite moment. Maybe when Mat Fraser, a disabled drummer joined them for God Put A Smile, or Chris sitting down next to the Paraorchestra for Strawberry Swing… and I thought I couldn’t love him even more :D

You could see how much fun the boys had, it was the perfect ending for London 2012. I’ll never forget this summer!

London 2012 – Inspire A Generation

August 22nd, 2012

It’s been over a week already since the closing ceremony… I absolutely LOVED the Olympics and I’m so so sad they’re over. I can only remember three Olympic Summer Games so far but these are definitely my favourite. So many wonderful people, moments, achievements, records and storys – it was a huge joy to watch. I’m especially happy for Team GB – I was secretly rooting more for them than for my own country, haha.
Thank you London, for these amazing 16 days!

I don’t think I can decide on a favourite moment.
Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah, Usain Bolt (love this picture)… they’re all heroes! I had tears in my eyes when Andy Murray finally beat Federer and I’m so happy for Tom Daley, who won bronze after everything he went through. Loved how everyone jumped in the pool :D The German equestrian eventing team did so great as well: Michael Jung won gold with his team and gold in the individual on his 30th birthday.
And I can’t not mention Michael Phelps and Chad Le Clos. How sweet was that moment when Michael reminded Chad to hold his medal up for the photos?! And Michael Phelps is now officially the greatest Olympian ever, with 18 gold medals.

London 2012 – Inspire A Generation? Well I’m inspired.

Oh and I LOVE this video, the US swim team lip synching to Call Me Maybe =D

Survival by Muse – Official Song of the London 2012 Olympic Games

July 9th, 2012

 

This is just epic. I admit,┬á I giggled when I first heard the song, it’s so ridiculous and over the top, but I love it, especially with this video. I always loved watching the Olympic Games (maybe ’cause I was born a day after the opening ceremony of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, heh) and since they’re in London this time I’m extra excited. Let the Games begin!
