LONDON – The first Friday of the Olympics were London’s night to celebrate with the gala opening ceremony to the Games to kick things off.
Since then, it’s taken some time for Londoners to warm to the action but that all seemed to take an upward swing on Friday. Perhaps it was the start of a weekend, likely it is related to the fact that track and field gets under way today, but Olympic Park was far busier than any other day thus far in the Games.
The superb high-speed Javelin train that takes passengers from Central London to the Park here in the east end were full today but still running smoothly. With Usain Bolt in action tomorrow and team sports heading into the playoff rounds, the action is heating up.
