The London Olympic Games is scheduled to start from 27 July to August 12, 2012. It is one of the most awaited sporting spectacle, as it only takes place once in four years. The standard of competition is going to be of top notch, as it is not only about an individual winning an award but also an athlete bringing laurels to the nation. Nothing compares to an athlete winning a gold medal and his nation's national anthem being played in the background. It would also be an emotional moment for the athletes, where some athletes break down with glory.
It is not only a great moment for athletes to represent their nation, but also those volunteers, who have a chance to see their favourite athletes with their naked eyes, from a distance of a few meters. One such volunteer, Michael Martin, Olympic Welcoming Volunteer, says that it is a great privilege and honour to be a part of the Games, and a matter of achievement.
While some athletes are very much focused on the task at hand. They have only one goal - to bring laurels to the country and win a medal. Marleen Van lersel, a Beach Volleyball player from Netherlands believes that they have a chance and can beat every team in the world. She seems to be confident about their success in the Games.
