I know the Olympic Games is the biggest event and I understand billions of people are watching. To participate here is special and of course doing something special here is an honour. I couldn't believe what I did here. I keep waking up at night thinking, "Is it real?" Coming into these Games, I was very confident. I had prepared myself well and there was no doubt in my mind. To break the world record here was something fantastic.Kenya, 800m gold medallistDavid Rudisha"The Olympic Games is the biggest event.

I'm originally from Connecticut, but we've been living in London since October. The build-up to the Games has been really exciting and we were really happy to get some tickets. We went to watch some of the swimming and it was amazing to see Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte - they were really putting on a show for the crowd. It was really exciting inside the venue - it seemed like everyone was cheering for everyone else, no matter which country they were from. Whatever chants started, everyone else just joined in. The cycling road race went by our apartment as well, which was pretty awesome. Everyone here seems to have been really fired up about the Games.Fan from USAPat Rodgers"Everyone was cheering for everyone else, no matter where they were from"46 OLYMPIC REVIEW LONDON 2012
