2. London has hosted Olympics more number of times than any other city in the world. The 2012 edition was the third time, London has hosted Olympics. 

3. Danny Boyle, Fame director of The Slumdog Millionaire, was the "Artistic Director" of the opening ceremony of the games. 

4. The main theme of the Opening ceremony was "This is for Everyone"

5. To avoid any controversy around lighting of the Cauldron, Britain choose seven young atheletes who were nominated by Britain's Greatest Olympians. The names of those lucky individuals are : Callum Airlie, Jordan Duckitt, Desiree Henry, Katie Kirk, Cameron McRitchie, Aidan Reynolds and Adelle Tracey
