World War One Wednesday

Olympic Rings on Tower Bridge


This week around our house has been all about the Olympics. I love watching sports, so the nonstop coverage of all the competitions is like crack. :D

There have been five Olympic Games that have been abandoned/put off because of war, the first occurring during the First World War in 1916. The city of Berlin had been awarded the games in 1912, but when war broke out in Europe, the games had no home. Berlin did host the Games in 1936, just prior to the start or World War 2, though the 1940 and 1944 games were abandoned later.

 What's your favorite Olympic moment so far in the London 2012 games?
