Previous years were 1908 and 1948. Learn more about the games, the sports and the athletes with this week’s web picks.
Hello Kids: Olympic Games Coloring Pages
Hello Kids has a big selection of Olympic coloring pages, including some specific to the London 2012 games. The coloring pages are divided into four categories: Mascots, Symbols, Ceremonies and Sports. The 2012 mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville, are animations depicting two drops of steel from a factory in Bolton. Wenlock (named after the town of Much Wenlock) is the Olympic mascot. And Mandeville (named after the Stoke Mandeville hospital) is the Paralympic mascot.
London 2012: Play Games
Play Games is the official London 2012 kids’ site. It include games, videos, photo gallery, and animated introductions to all the Olympic sports. Be sure to visit “Make Your Mascot” where you can dressup either Wenlock or Mandeville and save him/her in the Gallery for all to see. Saving a mascot requires registering with an email address. Wenlock and Mandeville also have their own Facebook and Twitter accounts, where you can follow them and be kept informed of all the upcoming festivities.
The official London 2012 website brings us schedules, results, news, photos, and features about athletes, countries and sports. “Did you know? Synchronised Swimming began as a sport for men in the 1800s. It is now one of two disciplines on today’s Olympic programme to be contested only by women. The other is Rhythmic Gymnastics.” A link to the Paralympics site can be found in the footer, along with other quick links.
