The 2012 London Olympic Games are nearly upon us! In just under a year’s time the game’s opening ceremony will kick off proceedings, with the world’s most elite athletes decending on the capital, sights set on the gold.

To mark the countdown, the 2012 team have opened the doors of the 2012 Olympic Twitter Stadium, where fans from around the globe can show their digital support for each nation’s competitors by leaving a tweeted message.

There’s even a leaderboard to see which country have the most vocal fans. Currently Team Great Britain are sitting in 2nd place, making up 16% of all the tweets sent so far, behind Brazil with 24% and ahead of the USA who have 12%.

It’s unlikely the GB team will top the USA in the real medals table, but we could pip them to the podium here, so get tweeting!
