I like the idea of the torch petals being distributed to all the nations taking part. It is some of the thoughtful attention to details that will be a lasting memory, not just the spectacle - another example is the way the Olympians were given a lovely farewell at the various departure hubs. I saw footage of Heathrow where there was a British decorated terminal just for the athletes with actors dressed as coldstream guards who entertained them. There was also a memory tree which the Olympians were invited to post notes on. These will be compiled in some form and sent to all the volunteers. A very nice touch I think.

I think that I will always remember the US women's gymnastics team, Michael Phelps' performances, Mo Farah, and watching Usain Bolt and the US women's relay teams.

Just some amazing performances!!

I agree, those small things made London 2012 what it was.
An article from DM about the athletes' departure:

The party is over! 6,000 athletes and 16,000 spectators make their way home after London 2012 as Team GB rowers emerge bleary-eyed


- The Heathrow Games terminal with a lovely goodbye note.
- The messages tree
