Olympics would have been dull and dry if not for the energetic supporters and fans from across the globe who throng the stadiums to cheer for their countrymen and their favourite athletes. It's the fans who added colour to the London Olympics after the colourful opening ceremony, and the Duchess of Cambridge leads from the front, going from one venue to another to cheer for the athletes from her country.
Some fans even end up getting more limelight than the athletes with glamorous getup, face and body paint...that's all part of the game. Meanwhile, they make the athletes make the extra push with their defeaning cheers and chants. Perhaps, MC Mary Kom, five-time world champion from India lost to Britain's Nicola Adams in the 51kg women's boxing semi final on Wednesday because of the cheers from the home crowd.
The fact that Great Britain's medal tally in the ongoing Olympics is the highest in more than a century speaks volumes.
Britain's total medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics was 47, comprising of 19 gold, 13 silver and 15 bronze. However, the country's total medal at the ongoing Olympics till the time of filing this story is 48 - 22 gold, 13 silver and 13 bronze. More medals are expected to come in as a few days are left before the games come to an end.
Britain Prime Minister David Cameron joined the nation in celebrating the success of its athletes by tweeting: "It's official - our most successful Olympics for gold medals. Victory in the Dressage makes it a truly golden summer for @TeamGB."
"More equestrian excellence with a dressage gold and more bling for @TeamGB than at any Games since 1908. Keep up the medal momentum guys," tweeted Boris Johnson, the mayor of London.
Well, it's worth mentioning that good home crowd inspired and pushed the athletes from the country to give their best and even more.
