Take a look at the newest macots for the 2012 London Olympics. If this doesn't scream Illimuninati symbolism I don't know what does.
Coming "not from Moscow", specially for you, sheep.

London 2012. With "ZION" on the logo.

The scariest thing is that it looks "funny" for uninformed sheeple.



And I liked the comment:

Work starts on Olympic Stadium's field of play

Work has begun on the Olympic Stadium's field of play for the London 2012 Games, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) announced.

It is where the action will take place, including the opening and closing ceremonies plus the track and field competitions.

Two years into the stadium construction, the centre of the showpiece £537 million venue has been cleared so builders can focus on creating the right ground conditions for competition. Ducts and a drainage system are being installed ahead of the turf and track being laid next year.

The first batch of seats, which are black and white and to be fitted this summer, is now in production.

ODA chair John Armitt said: "Only two years ago, the stadium site was a flat piece of ground.

"A huge amount has been achieved since then, with the venue now structurally complete and at its full height. Work is progressing on covering the roof and the first seats will be fitted this summer. The continuing progress means the stadium is still on track to be completed a whole year before the 2012 Games."

Over 4,500 reinforced concrete foundation columns have been installed, 12,000 pre-cast concrete seating terracing units are in place and the 450-tonne cable net roof structure has been positioned.

All five bridges and their abutments, connecting the stadium island to the rest of the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, have also been constructed and work has begun to fit out the 700 rooms and spaces within the stadium, including fitting toilets and tiling showers in the changing rooms. The 14 lighting towers, which sit 60 metres above the field of play, are also in place.

London 2012 chair Lord Coe said: "In 2012, we will see 2,000 international athletes in the stadium competing in some of the most exciting sporting events and we will also watch opening and closing ceremonies that will showcase London and the UK.

"The stadium will leave an inspirational legacy and we hope the whole Games-time experience will reach young people throughout the world and encourage them to take up sport."

I suppose they are, lucky ducks. I bet theyíre bloody expensive. Itís a shame that the upper half will be dismantled after the both games. Iím trying to find renders or designs for how the stadium will look after, but not having much luck. Anyone know of any sites where there are some?

I suppose the legacy mode will still depend on who moves in there after the Games. They're still in talks, West Ham is interested but hasn't made a decision yet.

Erm... You're not even Australian. What's with the trolling? It's New Zealanders like yourself with too much time on your hands that Australians don't even give a shit about. What's your beef?

Me thinks you've got sour grapes at the UK and Australia - because hosting the Olympics is something NZ will NEVER achieve. Auckland's too insignificant to host the Summer Olympics and the Winter Olympics will never be staged outside Jan-Feb. suck it up.

LOL. I wonder why he was pretending to be an Australian and then claiming we're the greatest Olympic nation ever? He's always got such a beef against Aussies, he must have been trying to whip up some anti-oz sentiment (which isn't hard at the best of times).

The crazy conspiracy theorist can stay though, right?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who at least kinda likes the mascots though. Much better than Izzy. *Shudder*



Seriously people, what could ever be worse than that monstrosity?

The logo and the mascot are both crappy but, to be honest,...who gives a shit about that? Some ppl can say that they are symbols, that ppl will associate GB with these two shitty products. But I won't. And many ppl won't. Stadium(s), swimming pool(s), gyms and so on - that is important. Obviously good atmosphere and competition as well. If I was going to London for Olympics, I would rather care about cost of meals in the restaurant, helpful Brits, not the f*cking mascot or an ugly logo. What I mean - there too much needless discussions about some unimportant issues here.
