Just in case you missed it, here's a clip of the lighting of the flame which was incredible. It was totally unique and, I think, unbeatable. It'll go down as the best flame lighting ever! David Beckham brought the flame down the Thames in a speed boat, then Steve Redgrave ran the torch into the arena and passed it on to young athletes of the future - inspired. Each country came into the arena carrying a small copper container (petal) and no one knew what they were for until the moment you'll see in the clip. It's not the best clip, too early I think, so if you can find a better one, please post it.
So, here it is. Absolutely the best torch lighting ceremony that has ever been. :Dhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL2PSoo7F-w
