With less than 24 hours left for the mega sporting event to kick start, Google has come up with a colorful doodle on the occasion of Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, officially called as the Games of the XXX Olympiad.
As usual, the Google logo is replaced with the new doodle on the search engine giant’s homepage marking the important sport event. The doodle features five athletes on the track holding the letters of the Google logo, with each featuring a respective game. The Olympic disciplines depicted on the doodle are football, swimming, running/jumping, javelin throw, fencing and basketball.
