Let the Games Begin - Olympic Cauldron

Here it is....
Finally after all of the anticipation you can watch how the Olympic cauldron was lit today at the 
2012 London Olympic Games opening ceremony.

It was spectacular and certainly didn't disappoint anyone!
Seven teenagers, each nominated by UK Olympic champions
each lit a tiny flame, which ignited the 205 copper petals. 
Each petal represents a competing nation.
The petals then rose up on stems to form the cauldron.
The cauldron symbolises peace and unity.

Did you see David Beckham on the speedboat 
with the flame? He was travelling along the Thames river.

What are your thoughts about the lighting of the cauldron?

I wonder how the petals rose?
My favorite part was the swimming. I do swimming every Thursday afternoon.

I thought the lighting of the cauldron was awesome because they lit up 7 little petals and I have never seen that before in any other country. The petals growing was so so cool! I hope they do that again.by Orlando
