  • Ritual humiliation at it's finest

  • One of the runners was a bronze medallist at the next Olympics in Rio

  • I like the Bg music.馃槏馃槏馃槏 London 2012 Torch is like a Harry Potter theme.馃槄

  • The sights and sounds.... What a beautiful 'flower' of flames that lit up the special evening! Each of the 204 individual flames is from every participating country's copper 'petal', all coming together, unified to form one massive beacon of light for all to see at the centre of the stadium. Even an alien from another galaxy would be touched by this dramatic representation of what humanity (and Olympics) is all about. Well done London -- cleverly meaningful, diplomatically inclusive and totally brilliant!

  • My opinion Better than rio or Tokyo

  • add some vfx

  • 12,800 "miles"? Is London in England or the US lol

    • In addition to being carried (mostly by air) from Olympia in Greece, the flame was taken within easy travelling distance of almost everybody in the UK, and briefly to Dublin. [EDIT: In response to the quotation marks round "miles"- It was decided that changing every road-sign in Britain with distances or speeds on was too expensive, so the UK still uses miles on the roads, despite all the mapping being metric]

  • this is cultish

  • The UK really just went down the drain after the London 2012 Olympics. Nevertheless, videos such as this remind us of better days.
