Most memorable moment of London 2012

You can name only one!

For me it is an odd one. Mens 20km race walk!

Three reasons for that. Ding Chen of China beat reigning champion Valeri Borchin of Russia. He celebrated victory, after he left him, by showing victory sign to crowd, 3km (!) from finish. Mentally destroying champion that was still fighting to catch him. Also silver went to Guatemalan walker Barrondo. Their best effort ever (?)

Champion isn´t competing for places that are outside of One. Fysically and mentally beat. Even boxing isn´t this brutal!

Andy taking the gold and hitting an ace on championship point!

Proud fan of mugs, chokers and clowns such as...
Robson | Lisicki | Shvedova | Stosur | Pironkova | Kirilenko | Kvitova

Re: Most memorable moment of London 2012

A few that come to my mind: Shin I-Lam getting robber of the berth in final and losing the bronze medal match, badminton teams getting disqualified for throwing matches.

Re: Most memorable moment of London 2012

2 moments. Sorry.

4x100 men's world record, Jamaica and U.S.
4x100 women's world record, U.S.

Smashed records. Rudisha's world record was more expected, but the men's 4x100 race was incredible and that record was unbelievable.

Re: Most memorable moment of London 2012

Probably Katie Taylor beating Natascha Jonas in the womens flyweight quarter final... Best boxing match at the entire games.
