Javelin throw, included in the ancient Greek Olympic Games since the year 776 BC as one of five events of the pentathlon competition. The dominant bronze sculpture (front) of a classical javelin thrower from the 5th century BC and his contemporary counterpart (background) represent the long tradition of the Olympics and the position of athletics as the queen of sport.
The logo of the London Olympics is the other dominant element in the image. The cutting-edge design of this logo, which triggered a huge debate, is based on the date 2012. It looks like street graffiti art. Other visual elements accompanying the London 2012 Games are also based on this design.
The Games of the XXX Olympiad, or London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, are scheduled to take place in London, England, United Kingdom from 26 July to 12 August 2012. Around 300 sets of medals are planned to be presented in 26 sports. London will become the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times, having previously done so in 1908 and in 1948.
The already traditional Paralympic Games are scheduled to take place in London from 29 August to 9 September, after the end of the Olympic Games.
London was selected as the host city for the 2012 Olympics out of the nine cities that submitted bids by 15 July 2003. All cities passed through the bidding process including an evaluation of completed questionnaires with the overall eleven criteria (such as, transport, finances, accommodation, etc.) and setting of scores to express their ability to host the Olympics. The five winning candidates proceeded to the final selection process, with London finally winning the right to host the games.
The programme of the Games of the XXX Olympiad features 26 sports. The IOC voted to drop baseball and softball. The sports are: Athletics, Badminton, Box, Cycling, Judo, Football, Gymnastics, Handball, Sailing, Equestrian, Canoeing, Basketball, Archery, Modern Pentathlon, Volleyball, Swimming, Field Hockey, Diving, Table Tennis, Shooting, Synchronized Swimming, Fencing, Teakwondo, Tennis, Triathlon, Rowing, Water Polo, Weighlifting, Wrestling.
