London is ready for the opening of the Summer Olympics on July 27—the first city to have hosted three Games. I’ve been privileged to participate as a broadcaster in four Summer Olympics and to work alongside several British gold medalists, including sprinter Harold Abrahams, of Chariots of Fire fame (Paris, 1924), long-jumpers Mary Rand and Lynn Davies (Tokyo, 1964), and decathlete Daley Thompson (Moscow 1980, Los Angeles 1984).
