The Blue Stone Review has revealed the Australian Swim team’s misconduct that breached rules and also stated that the team as a whole existed within a ‘toxic’ culture which led to bullying and abuse of prescription drugs.
The reviews were prompted by the sport’s governing body after witnessing the swimming team’s worst performance in two decades last year at the London Olympics. The report throws light on issues regarding poor leadership since incidents of ‘indecent’ behavior and indiscipline were not addressed as they should’ve been by the staff and coaches, indicating that there was a ‘dire need’ of good leadership at the Olympic Games last year.
What a glorious ending it was to the most acknowledged event of the world!
Star studded performances from London brought the curtain down on glorious Olympic Games in an extremely spectacular manner, with lots of music, dance, light shows and a lot of fun for the 80,000 fans at the Olympic Stadium and for the rest of the world watching the closing ceremony of 2012 Olympics on their TV sets.

No event whether it be Olympics or any other can be possible without the dedication and devotion of its volunteers. But sometimes a volunteer goes an extra mile and rises above the mundane job he is assigned to.
One example of that extra mile is shown in the video in which a woman has been assigned the task of directing the thousands of people headed to the opening ceremony of the grand event of London Olympics 2012. Her stream of consciousness and deadpan jokes to the crowd was caught on video and it is hilarious.
