2012 icon – Usain Bolt
The 2012 London logo has come in for a lot of criticism in the run up to the Olympics. I’ve been one of its many critics. I’ve tried to like it and many are trying to post rationalise its ugliness, but I still hate it! No-one can deny though the success of these Olympics, with even the naysayers and cynics reluctantly admitting it has lifted the spirits of the nation.
Last night Usain Bolt defied his critics and became the first man to successfully defend his Olympic 100 and 200 metre titles. An incredible athlete and personality and a figure and face that will forever be associated with this great sporting event.
