The 2012 London Olympic Games officially commence on Friday with the opening ceremony.
To celebrate the start of the XXX Olympiad, we asked our social media followers to share their all-time favorite Olympic athlete and the reason why.
The responses we received were varied; some named the most recognizable athletes – citing their iconic Olympic performances – while others selected hometown favorites.
Before settling in to watch the Games on WKYC-TV Channel 3, read the responses we received and view the associated media to relive past Olympic glory and learn about some of the native Northeast Ohioans competing in this year’s Games.
