I officially declare this OL2012 for opened (with what is always involved before the Games really begin) : Politics
Seems some in the UK either missed the Chinese Taipei flag and were therefore ordered to remove the TW tricolor on Regent Street.
I wish the TAIWAN team all success - maybe some medals for the Ladies in Taikwando or what other categories might harvest some medals?
As prediction, I bet the Russians will beat the Americans in total nr of medals this year. As for the Chinese - wait and see.
