A Look Back on Last Year’s London 2012 Paralympic Games

Going to the London 2012 Paralympic Games last year was one of the best, treasurable moments, I loved the opportunity of going, and every minute and second of the Paralympic Games were truly valued. I absolutely loved the experience of going into the Olympic Stadium and seeing the paralympians play for myself.

I was shocked by how big it was inside the Olympic Stadium, it was MASSIVE!!! Everywhere around the Olympic Stadium I viewed made my view of the stadium feel panoramic, and for the day to be nice and sunny, the weather was perfect, and the whole day was absolutely beautiful.

I loved taking an opportunity of a lifetime, and this is a day I will always treasure for the rest of my life.

These were the photos I took at the London 2012 Paralympic Games on 6th September 2012, 3 days before the Paralympic Games drew to a close. I also merged these 2 photos together to create the panorama below:

This panorama contains 2 photos in 1, merged together and forms a full, clear view of what the inside of the Olympic Stadium really looks like. I noticed after merging these 3 photos that the woman who was going to sit down turned into a ghost figure, which to begin with was kind of creepy, but then I got used to it.

  1. These are really great photos. You have really captured the feel of the Olympic Stadium and of the fundamentally significant sportsmanship that the Olympics embody. I actually do not live very far from the Olympic Stadium and remember the noise and bright lights being visible/audible from my old place. Unfortunately I couldn’t secure any tickets, so never got a chance to witness the greatest athletics show on Earth first-hand.

    Really liked this post, and thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Vijay, I was surprised as the old phone I used to use was really small, and was capable of taking photos in a slightly different form. The result was great though…again thank you for dropping by and you’re very welcome too 😊.
