Olympics — a montage

Here’s a video montage put together by the BBC, celebrating London and Britain’s Olympians. For those in the UK, you’ll recognize a lot of the footage. For those in the USA, take a look at how Britain’s been covering the games. The song is “London” by Thea Gilmore, lyrics by Sandy Denny. I dare you to watch without getting a lump in your throat.

  1. Okay, you win – HUGE lump in throat even though I was determined not to succumb again, AND I’d seen it before!

  2. Excellent! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Yep. lump. throat. Cried when the one little gal right at the beginning looked to the heavens and said, “I love you mom.”

    total choke.

  4. Sorry, no lump. My nose and upper lip did kinda do that curling up thingy though 🙂

  5. Still playing this video and recommending it to my friends. It is so everything!

  6. Yep, a lump. We are two weeks (today) from flying for a 9 month stint in London and the song said it. My boy is going to get a terrible shock when we go to Horse Guards’ Parade and it isn’t full of sand and scantily-clad women.
