The last "rings"

By Chinga
London Olympics 27/07 to 12/08 - 2012
The Olympics Closing Ceremonies include a Handover from one Host City to the next The Closing Ceremony celebrates the achievements of athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and includes a Handover from one Host City to the next. Tonight London will hand over to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games. The Closing Ceremony also features the extinguishing of the Olympic Flame, signalling the end of the Games. The flagbearers of the participating delegations enter the Stadium in single file, closely followed by the athletes. At the Closing Ceremony, athletes march together, not by nationality. This is a tradition that began at the Melbourne 1956 Olympic Games and is a way of bringing the athletes of the world together as 'one nation'. The Olympic Flame, which has been burning in the Cauldron since the opening of the Games, is then extinguished a poignant and moving moment for all those involved in the Games and the audience at large. BRAVO London!
I have uploaded my last collection of "rings" to celebrate the closing of the London Olympics 2012.
