[London 2012] Summary

Today, the London 2012 Olympic Games officially begin with the Opening Ceremony on 9:00 PM GMT. The first Women's and Men's Football matches and Archery events have already finished, as you might know.

Yesterday I asked the last Olympic question. I want to summarize all the 21 questions:

20 Athletics - Track & Field Who will win the Women's Heptathlon event? Jessica Ennis (GBR)
21 Athletics - Track & Field Who will win the Decathlon event? Trey Hardee (USA)

As you can see, the questions were all about a few of the 36 Olympic sports: Athletics, Tennis, Gymnastics - Artistic, Swimming, Diving and Cycling. There are the sports I usually watch. There could have been room to put a lot of other questions, but since the games are starting now I am focusing on the results.
I wish there would have been more people to give answers to my daily questions (it doesn't matter if on Google+, Facebook or with comments on my blog). I cannot explain why they were less than I was expected (I have some hypothesis, don't worry).
Anyway, many thanks to Tibi, Andreea and Andrei for giving their answers to some of my questions!

Let the Games begin!
