Spectacular fireworks at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics 2012

The London Olympics opened in spectacular style with the combination of royalty and rock, two of Britains signature things it gave the world over the past few decades.

The queen and James Bond gave the London Olympics a royal entrance like no other Friday in an opening ceremony that rolled to the rock of the Beatles, the Stones and The Who, Associated Press reported.

Malaysia will be looking for their first ever Olympic goal medal this time, with hopes wresting on world number one Lee Chong Wei, and Sarawakian swimmers Bryan Nickson Lomas and Pandalela Rinong.
