From the ZipZap France web page. http://www.ambafrance.org.uk/zipzap/anglais/chap4/francophonie.htm "It [French] is also the official language of the Olympic Games in honour of Pierre de Coubertin, the creator of the modern Olympics." The IOC has two offical languages English and French (Rule 27 - IOC Charter). Both languages are used to introduce competitors and all IOC documents are in both English and French. However, at IOC meetings, simultaneous translation is also provided into German, Spanish, Russian and Arabic. In the event of any discrepancy between the French and English in the Olympic Charter or any other IOC document, the French text prevails.

The purpose of the Olympics is to unite the world in a friendly arena. Rather then a war, athletes fight for the pride of their country in sports.

The fist country to enter the arena will always be Greece because this is where the Olympics originated, the last one is the hosting country.

It was used as the opening/closing ceremonies as well as for athletics. Although it wasn't called that in 2000.

It became a permanent feature for and after the 1928 games. The games will be held at the Riverbank Arena from 29th July until 11th August

This is sometimes known as a "Herald". Which refers to the fellow who would run into the arena to announce the arrival of the "Queen's Favorite". I'm sure it dates back much further than my obvious reference to the middle ages. I'm not exactly an expert, but I'm sure the concept of "trumpeting in the athletes" has been around as long as the Olympics anyway. :o)

Because Jessie Owen won the race against the German competitors, and so Hitler refused to hand them the medal. he was infuriated and left the arena.

The O2 Arena, or North Greenwich Arena, as it was known during the recent Olympics, is an entertainment complex in London. It is mostly used for concerts, with many big entertainment names like Metallica, Rolling Stones and Beyonce performing there. Many sporting events are held there, from Tennis to Darts, as well as other entertainment events.
