The Olympic Games only come around once every four years….but when they arrive; they arrive in a big way.
There is no other event in the world that can captivate a global audience like the Olympics – sports fan or not, there is just something about the Games that unites people. The power, prowess, protruding six packs – whatever it is that gains your attention, there is every chance that at some point, whether you know it at the time or not, you will tune in.
Despite happening on the other side of the world, Wollongong is getting right behind the 2012 London Games and our own athletes who are representing Australia on the world stage across a range of different sports – Jarryd Poort, David McKeon, Ryan Gregson, David Smith, Kieran Govers and Casey Eastham.
To ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action we have set up a HUGE screen on the stage in the City Centre.
The free televised coverage will run for the entirety of the Games to cover all the live action and highlights across the 17 days of sport.
