Olympic Doodle No. 3 presents “Diving” (July 29th, 2012). Diving will feature 136 athletes at the 2012 Olympics. Diving requires acrobatic excellence and as athletes dive from heights of up to 10m. Hopefully there is water in the pool below.
On Friday, the Google doodle had celebrated the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. The doodle 5 athletes playing different Olympic sports. On Saturday, the Google doodle had celebrated the sport of archery, with a female archer getting ready to aim for bull’s eye.
Google has a rich history of Olympics related doodles. In 2008, there was a doodle celebrating the opening ceremony of the Bejing Olympics on Aug 8, 2008. This doodle showed the five Beijing Olympics mascots – BeiBei, JingJing, HuanHuan, YingYing and NiNi – carrying the Olympic flag.
Each day in 2008 saw different Google doodles being released. It is expected that this year too Google will stay true to its tradition and come out with a series of doodles spread across the next fifteen days. With the opening ceremony and archery doodles done and dusted, it will be interesting to see the pattern Google follows for the rest of the Olympics.
