What an opening ceremony! It was truly inspirational and the fact that there were so many surprises and secrets that were kept from us made it all the more special. A brilliant idea to have seven young Athletes chosen by past great Olympians to light the Olympic Cauldron. An amazing Olympic Cauldron, made up of 205 copper pedals each one representing every country at the games and when the individual stems are lifted together you get one united flame. I’m sure it won’t long before its Sir Danny Boyle.
