It's starting today! Usain Bolt is probably going to be my highlight but apart from that I can't wait for the swimming and cycling.

I am in London and it's getting pretty crazy! I'm mostly excited about basketball (Go Lithuania!) and some of the athletics

Does anybody have any thoughts on who could be the one to light the olympic torch? I would love it to be Sir Steve Redgrave...but then I'd also love it to be Harry Potter,given how Voldermort will apparantly feature in the opening ceremony...

But given how it is the Jubilee...Prince William?!?!

Excited to see Mo Farrah!

^ Me too. I swear I feel as though I can't even leave my home because of how crowded the buses are going to be.

Is anyone watching the BBC? The Benedict Cumberbatch voice over was brilliant and I like that they are going have a Shakespeare inspired ceremony. I trust in Danny Boyle to not to create a bad ceremony.

I think it will be Sir Steve Redgrave. He's denying it right now but it's more the 'I know I'm lighting it but I'm not telling you' denial.

^I used to live quite close to London,and our train goes straight past the site. It is insane to see how far along it has come. Actually crazy. I can't even comprehend how bad the traffic must be for you now.

Also forgot to mention Tom Daley I lived in Plymouth for 7 years so super excited to cheer him on,so much love for him!!

Tom Daley is a sweetheart and he's gone through much so I really hope he wins in front of the home crowd.

The Olympic site is amazing. I got to go into it last year and it looks really good and like a mini city. It has the biggest McDonalds in the world which is crazy.

We are all rooting for Steve. I love that the ceremony is being portrayed as something to remind the world of Britain's contribution to it.

Apparently Kenneth is going to recite some of the Tempest. I mean Sir Kenneth of course. Well rather he has.
