LONDON, August 13 (Itar-Tass) —— A festive closing ceremony of the XXX Summer Olympic Games began at the Olympic Stadium here on Sunday. The competitions in all kinds of sports are over, and now the athletes expect the final event, as they will participate in a ceremonial parade of the countries, which will be held at the middle of the closing ceremony. A five-time Olympic champion in synchronized swimming Anastasia Davydova will lead the Russian delegation.
Meanwhile, the ordinary workday in London is showed at the stadium. Architectural pearls of the city are wrapped in the paper and they will blow up some time later.
Popular British soul singer Emeli Sande is performing ‘Read all about it’, which was originally written and recorded by rape singer Steve Paul Manderson, more known as Professor Green, with Emeli as a featured artist. The song became the British top hit in 2011.
The acrobatic gymnastics troupe Stomp is creating a chaotic cacophony of city sounds. It is not accidental, because up to the idea of the authors of the closing ceremony, the first part of this wonderful picture is called the rush hour.
