50 Best moments from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

Mo running Mo Gold Watching Mo Farah romp to gold twice was easily one of the finest moments of the Olympics. Farah’s efforts escalated him to celebrity status in weeks and the term 'national treasure' has been thrown around more than a few times.
Brownlee brothers Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee's exploits, which bagged Team GB gold and bronze respectively, were a joy for the nation to watch. Even though Jonathan suffered a penalty during the men's triathlon, he still managed third position.
