For me, there are a number of reasons why the London Games have been so successful this year. London has been hosting the Olympics for the past few years and has always had good views. This year’s Olympic’s were very famous and the word was spread out mainly because of the sporting events lining up. There were various sports and many religions had shared participation. There was unity and there there were no fights or quarrels between any countries. I still remember the time during the summer holidays when I was sitting at home, bored and had nothing to do. olympics was an event which kept me busy. I enjoyed going through the different channels and watching the various sports. Supporting my favorite athletes and countries made me feel so proud and happy. The participation events had been a big hit with the crowds, and they were great because they got many people interested in the new sports and activities. Come on! sometimes you have got to admit it, Sitting at home all alone in summer with nothing interesting coming on TV, what did you do? I’m pretty sure you switched on the TV to watch the olympics.
The London Olympics were a great thing to come and people were dying to see their countries play this time. Although the athletes might not be professional ,There was a lot of improvement from all the athletes. There was more competition and many people liked watching them. Entertainment was what they needed and entertainment was what the olympics provided them. My reason for watching the Olympics was mainly because I wanted to see how India was doing in the olympics, diving, weight lifting, volleyball and athletics. Usain Bolt was the man i wanted to see run. A few people this year came to see the olympics mainly to watch Usain run. The people wanted to see and know whether Usain kept his title of the fastest man alive or someone else beat him. There were many viewers because this event only occurs once in 4 years and many people are hardcore fans. Another reason for watching the Olympics was to watch my one and only favorite swimmer Michael Phelps. Although he didn't do well this time. His effort and commitment cannot be argued on.
Most of you might not agree with me saying that it will come again and there is nothing so special about it. But, i advise you to think again and admit that you yourself see it every 4 years. You might say it is only there for people to make money and raise prices but is that actually true? The people responsible for this might be doing this for many people to be aware of what sports there are. I think it is important to know facts before making conclusions. It caused a big impact and that’s mainly the point.
