someone holding the medalsWith the closing ceremonies just a breathe away (tomorrow night), the world stands by as to who is in the running to be declared the winner of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Well, it is very clear that Team USA is going to be the victor. This is mainly because with an overall medal count of 102 (44 gold, 29 silver and 29 bronze) over China’s 87 (38 gold, 27 silver and 22 bronze). It is safe to say that Team USA is going to win the Olympics. However, nothing is for certain as of yet.

However, it is the closing ceremonies that are getting all the hype. With such stars as One Direction and even the latest entry, Adele, singing in the ceremony, it is going to be a “Symphony of British Music”. One group that is making headlines is the rejoining of Spice Girls. The Brit-Pop band from the 90′s are back to perform in the closing ceremonies along a total of 1500 performers as London gets ready for the night to remember. The London Summer Olympics has been watched by millions around the world and must come to an end tomorrow night.

The torch will then be passed on to Rio de Janeiro as they are the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics. All around the social media networks, organizers of the event are saying that this is going to be one that the world is going to remember. With the many performers blessing the stage tomorrow night, it is going to remind everyone of what Great Britain has given the world and the love that we should have to one another. The Olympics has been a roller coaster for some. Here are the stories that have made Headlines at Daily Bubble:

  • All Eyes On Phelps – Michael “The Flying Fish” Phelps had everyone watching him as he competed in the Olympics and he didn’t even win a gold medal this time around. With a positive attitude, he wasn’t let down when Ryan Lochte took the gold this time around.
  • Morganella Expelled From Games – Remember Switzerland soccer player (Football for the Europeans) Michael Morganella was expelled from the Games for making a racial slur via Twitter. I guess athletes haven’t figured out that making comments on Twitter can get you really into big trouble. The athlete later apologized and took his punishment. The unfortunate news is that the bad sportsmanship didn’t stop with this incident.
  • Phelps Confirms He Will Not Return Next Olympics – No one can forget when Phelps announced that he will not be returning to the Olympics in 2016. The “Flying Fish” fans were deeply saddened as their hopes were dashed. However, it was later reported recently that the Olympic Swimmer is considering another sport to fill his time with. This time around, it is Golf.
  • Gabby Douglas Wins Gold For Team USA! – History was made this day as the first African-American won the Gold in Gymnastics Division. This came in the face of 16-year-old Gabby Douglas as she picked up the gold for Team USA. The 4 ft 11 inch Olympian even got a call from President of the United States, Barack Obama to congratulate her.
  • Seven Cameroon Athletes Missing – The West Africa Team of Cameroon went missing during the Olympics supposedly seeking asylum from their country. The athletes caused quite a stir as they just “disappeared” from the events and were later found to be seeking refuge from their country of West Africa.

and lastly…

  • May-Treanor and Walsh Threepeat Olympic Gold Medal – Team USA Volleyball players Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh took the gold from Team USA Jennifer Kessy and April Ross. Claiming it to be a victory for friendship, the duo made history with three Gold medals!

The Olympics this year have been interesting to say the least and the closing ceremonies are going to do the events justice with the plans of bringing everyone to the stage to be cheered for once again. Every time the Olympics are on, the world comes a little bit closer. As the Olympic Creed goes “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
