Olympics: An event that united all people

GRAND, colourful, extravagant. That sums up the 2012 London Olympics. The Olympics saw the best of us.

The spectators were awesome. There was a close bond between the athletes and spectators. Everybody cheered for everyone, regardless of nationality. The spectators lived the Olympics through the athletes.

The feeling that "I was there" or "I witnessed it live on TV" is something to treasure for the rest of our lives.

If all humans continue to get along together like in the Olympics, the world will surely be a beautiful place to live in. During the closing ceremony, all the athletes walked through the crowd to the centre of the stadium. They came in together rather than by country and mingled with each other.

Inspiring stories, the tears and joy on the faces of athletes left us speechless.

It was also a dynamic transformation from the 1948 London Olympics, when the athletes slept in military barracks and boarding schools.

The Olympics provided a fair battlefield for everyone, regardless of race, religion, colour, creed or nationality. It united the human race.
