2012 Olympic countdown clock visit
I was in Trafalgar Square last week, I have chance to go around London because we have a longer day the sun sets at 9:30PM so I could visit the countdown clock London 2012 Olympic Games. It all looked like an advertisement for Omega, but as it turns out, not a very good one perhaps.
A 6.5m-high structure, which is in a prominent position in Trafalgar Square. The timepiece, which has become a traditional fixture for Olympic host cities and is made by sponsor Omega, stalled reading 437 days, 23 hours, 20 minutes and 7 seconds to go until the opening ceremony.
The launch of the Omega countdown clock is an important milestone for any Olympic Games and is something of a tradition within the Olympic movement. It will be a daily and hourly reminder to everyone who visits Trafalgar Square that the countdown to the start of London 2012 has well and truly begun and that the greatest show on earth is soon coming in the UK.
