Daniel Craig reprises his role as British secret agent James Bond as he accompanies Her Majesty The Queen to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The Ceremony also featured appearances from Mr. Bean, Monty Python and a re-imagining of the British Industrial Revolution.

Whether athletes win a medal or not, they can forever call themselves Olympians. The sporting competitions are undoubtedly the central focus of the Olympic Games and participating in the Games is the ultimate goal for most athletes. Every edition has its own story to tell and will be remembered for some truly remarkable performances from sporting legends such as Jesse Owens, Abebe Bikila, Jean-Claude Killy, Nadia Comaneci, Katarina Witt, Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, to name just a few.

Highlights of the Women's BMX seeding run during the London 2012 Olympic Games. The first national mountain bike championships were held in 1983 in the USA. But the sport quickly grew in popularity in Europe and Australia. The first mountain bike World Championships, recognised by the International Cycling Union (UCI), were organised in 1990. Olympic recognition followed and mountain biking made its debut as an Olympic discipline at the Atlanta Games in 1996, with a cross-country event for men and women. The programme has remained unchanged ever since. It was in 2008 in Beijing that BMX made its debut on the Olympic programme. BMX is one of the fastest and youngest cycling disciplines. Its principle is simple: eight riders compete on a track filled with jumps, tight bends and obstacles.

here is mistakes and some of my favorite crazy moments in wintersport
"Medallists GOLD PEACOCK Jonnie GBR - Great Britain SILVER BROWNE Richard USA - United States of America BRONZE FOURIE Arnu RSA - South Africa LONDON, 6 September - A pair of British victories less than 10 minutes apart, with wheelchair racer David WEIR (GBR) and lower-leg amputee sprinter Jonnie PEACOCK (GBR) triumphing in two of the most high-profile athletics events at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, sent the Olympic Stadium spectators into euphoria on Thursday night. PEACOCK succeeded Beijing 100m champion Oscar PISTORIUS (RSA) as the man to beat in the T44 men's 100m with a superb start that saw him ahead after just 10m. It was a lead that he was never to relinquish despite being pressed hard all the way to the line, which he crossed in a Paralympic record of 10.90, just 0.05 away from his own world record set earlier this summer.The 19-year-old Briton showed his maturity by living up to all the expectations heaped on his young shoulders, as the roars of 'PEACOCK, PEACOCK' rang out around the Olympic Stadium prior to the gun being fired. The unheralded Richard BROWNE (USA) provided a challenge from an unexpected direction and finished second in a personal best 11.03. ""It's surreal. For the past four days I've been in the Village. I've been trying to keep focus for that time but when you've got guys like David (WEIR, GBR) going out and getting golds you just want to go out and be a part of that. It hasn't really sunk in yet. I don't think it will ever sink in. When I crossed the line and I'd won I was waiting for the time of the board and it was a relief to win."" - Jonnie PEACOCK said For further information, please visit http://www.paralympic.org.

It's that time that comes round every four years, when we all become armchair experts at obscure winter sports for a fortnight. Yes – it's the Winter Olympics!
Tune in as I review the brilliant Pop Looks Bach BBC theme and compare it to the new one. And take a trip down memory lane as we relive the majesty of Torvill and Dean, and the drama of the curlers...
And if you find the Winter Olympics a bit dull, then just watch James Bond perform the same events but in a more exciting way!
