Granted, I haven't been watching every second of the Olympics coverage, but I've been watching a fair amount and I've been amazed at how infrequently the Shard appeared in skyline images of London. Finally it showed up last night looking amazingly beautiful.

Maybe they dropped something small, like sometimes if girls wear jewelry, and it can become loose and a piece falls off.

Wow, that's a large crowd. Is there something special going on in London nowadays?

ThatOneGuy, the Olympics are being held there throughout the next two weeks. You should check them out, it's a neat watch!

Just a joke, I know they're on. Congrats for London. Plus, the Shard will get a lot of publicity from this, since many international people are visiting.

i've seen more clips of it during the games than I ever would have expected. It's nice to see it get all of this attention.
