The London Olympics will kick off exactly one year from today, and to build excitement for the next 365 days of unbridled anticipation, organizers and leaders gathered in the brand new Aquatics Center to watch a group of... synchronized swimmers? Well, there was also a commemorative foot molding at a train station, and a public display of the moving sidewalk for kayaks at the Lee Valley White Water Centre, and "Wenlock" shuffled his feet a few times for the cameras. But please, suppress your elation. We have an entire year of this ahead of us.
