Yes, the Olympic Games 2012 has finally arrived in the city of London. The sporting event that’s has everybody talking and moving… don’t get left behind, jump on the London Olympic Podium!
The Olympic story goes back to ancient Greece, where legend has it that Heracles formed the games and decided to hold them every four years. He was a Greek hero known for his masculinity; strong, robust and had stamina; a competitive God. Events such as javelin, discus, boxing, heptathlon and running all hail from this ancient time and are popular events to this day.
Prometheus, a Titan mythical hero, gave the sacred flame to mere mortals (that’s you and me) giving humanity the strength to progress …he is remembered as the champion of mankind.
London 2012 is in our sights
So where is the London Olympic Venue? Stratford in East London with its own history of a different kind is the chosen one and has been transformed to host the Olympic spectacle. The Olympic Park is home to a stadium, aquatics centre and a velodrome.
Athletes from the Unites States to Ukraine, Mexico to Malaysia, Brazil to Bahrain, Great Britain to Greece and many more; all corners of the globe under one roof. Olympians united in Stratford London, a theatre of dreams, we hope the dreams of those competing, becomes a reality.
The Olympic Flame is glowing in the distance
The 5 Olympic rings are symbolic of the 5 parts of the world united in healthy competition. ‘Massaggi London’ sports massage therapist believes that uniting the 5 elements that are: water, nutrition, breathing, exercise and body massage as maintenance will bring a healthy balance to every athlete.
Maximising sports performance and endurance in order to produce 100% power can be done not just through regular training, and by looking after the body internally too. Follow these 5 elements to avoid physical injury and to develop a focused mind; a winning combination.
One thing is certain these Olympic Athletes have inspired many Londoners to take part in more sporting activities and new ones too! Everyone it seems wants to be part of this electric atmosphere in different ways. Perhaps you are going to walk to work, jog or cycle?
Londoners of different ages, origins, cultural backgrounds, all walks of life will become fitter and stronger just by traveling from A to B. We all need to be in fine tune if we are going to get on a ‘Boris Bike’.
Just a Touch Away
Will everyone decide to get on the Olympic track and run with it? If it’s not your cup of tea you are probably thinking that sports massage is not what you need. Most of you have probably already earned your ‘bronze medal’ by getting up for work each day, silver for traveling there and the ‘gold medal’ for sitting behind a desk for 8 hours.
Champions and you didn’t even realise! You may not be sweating buckets but all this takes some physical effort don’t you think?
So many events to look forward to, the thrill of the men’s 100m final, the relay race, the unexpected sport that everyone gets hooked on, an unlikely hero that gives us all hope and lifts our spirits, the legend who will light the final flame for the games to commence; who will it be? Will Muhammad Ali’s moment at the Atlanta games ever be matched?
The greatest sports man of our time, showing courage in the face of adversity.
This is London’s third time of hosting the Olympic Games, the first city to do this in its glorious history. In first place, the winner… London 2012!
