The London 2012 Olympic Games take place July 27 to August 12. In dozens of interviews during that time, participants will attempt to explain what it means to be an olympian. The Olympic Games have a powerful influence on the lives of thousands of athletes in 28 Olympic sports who strive for positions on their national teams.
