The final countdown

I love all the hype that surrounds the Olympics - especially the way the community can get involved in the torch relay.

I remember back in 2000, I'd just got back from my Year 12 Ski Trip and no sooner was I off the bus than Mum and Dad bundled me up to see the torch pass near my house on Unley Road.

It was so exciting, a real sense of history and patriotism.

But for a dose of fun and colour, I like this take on the Olympic Torch Relay.

Check out Sant and Abel's Olympic Countdown . . .
