Counting the days

Montage - Day 1 = First full day, Saturday 28th July.

Google has provided the 'Googling' public with a special 'doodle' (and a few doodle videos) for each day of the Londond Olympics 2012. How these are numbered on various archive sites depends on which day is considered Day 1.

The Games were opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II on Friday 27th July. The first football matches had already been played, so some websites count 27th July as Day 1. For most of the viewing public, however, the first full day of Olympic events was Saturday, 28th July.

Whatever the numbering system, the Games have provided thrilling viewing across a range of events and Google Doodles continue to reflect the variety of disciplines on show.
