On Friday, 27th of July, the summer Olympic Games will begin. The whole world will be watching with excitement as the city of London hosts its 3rd Summer Olympic Games! While the world’s best athletes are readying themselves for glory are you getting ready for your big lottery jackpot win?
The Olympic Games are probably the most famous sporting celebration in the world and have origins dating back for thousands of years to Greece, 776 BC.
The Olympic Games have been held around the world since its “modern” beginning in 1896 including Europe, Asia and North America. In 2016, South America’s first Olympics will be held (in Rio, Brazil) while the African continent is still to host the Olympic Games.
The Olympics Games 2012 will be held from 27th of July to 12th of August 2012. They expect 205 nations to take part in 300 events – a truly global event.
All Eyes On London, UK
The city of London is synonymous with wealth, success and excitement (not to mention it’s legendary UK National Lottery game). It should therefore come as no surprise that Londoners will be hosting their 3rd Olympic tournament. The Olympic torch has been working its way through the UK since May and will be ending up in the host city on the Friday 27th July to coincide with the opening ceremonies.
Excitement in London is reaching fever pitch as the countdown to the 2012 Summer Olympics reaches its final few days. Millionaires and billionaires from around the globe (including Russian businessman Andrey Melnichenko) have moored their luxury yachts off Canary Wharf and are ready to indulge in some athletic entertainment from their premium perches.
Wouldn’t it be nice to join them? A €112,000,000.00 jackpot win on tonight’s Euromillions would certainly broaden your London Olympic tourist options. You could have your pick of the city’s most luxurious hotels.
