It’s not long now before London hosts the 2012 Olympic Games – 100 days to be exact! We are already counting down to what is sure to be a memorable two weeks – in which the best athletes from around the world will compete for medals. Below we take a look at a few of the events you can look forward to watching between the 27th July and 12th August.
On the right Track
The athletics track events will be held at the brand new Olympic stadium and are contested over distances ranging from 100 metres to 10,000 metres. All eyes will be on three time gold medal winner and Olympic record holder Usain Bolt (pictured) who will be looking to once again finish on top of the podium this summer.
In the tile industry, Tiles Porcelain are the equivalent to Usain Bolt with an incredibly fast shipping system which includes next day delivery to anywhere in the UK! And just like the Olympics have a range of distances in their track events we are extremely versatile when it comes to the size of the jobs we supply for. We believe no order is too big or too small so whether you’re after 100 square metres of tiles or 10,000 square metres of tiles we are the company to come to.
Displaying Great Strength
A real spectator favourite of any Olympic Games is the weightlifting event. It’s a sport which takes immense strength and also technique to compete at the highest level. Despite being one of the most straightforward events at the Olympics, weightlifting can be exhilarating to watch, combining suspense, drama and emotion in equal measure.
If you’re after tiles that display unbelievable natural strength and will last a lifetime in your home then granite (pictured) is an exceptional choice. Granite is formed over thousands of years deep within the earth’s continental crust making it one of the strongest natural materials available. We have a premium range of natural stone granite wall and floor tiles along with bespoke granite worktops.
3 is a magic number
One of the most gruelling events of the Olympic Games is the Triathlon (pictured). This comprises of three separate activities; swimming, biking and running. This year’s event will take place in Hyde Park and is sure to be a big favourite among spectators.
