The Closing Ceremony of the London Olympics was aired live this morning on TV5 from 4:00-5:00 AM and highlights were incorporated into its morning program, Good Morning Club.
The event showcased the best of British Music. Aptly called “A Symphony of British Music,” the celebration featured some of the country’s best artistic exports in the past half-century. More than 4,100 performers, including 3,500 volunteers and 380 school children were present during the lavish gathering to cap off the quadrennial games.
More than 10,000 athletes also marched together in a symbol of unity forged in the past two weeks of the games. Representatives from 2016 Olympic host country Brazil were introduced during the formal turnover ceremony for the next Games.
If you’ve missed the live telecast, you can catch the full closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics at 12 noon today, August 13, on TV5 and at 8:00PM on AKTV on IBC.
