On Saturday July 21, 2012 The Angeles de Medellin held their own LONDRES Olympics for over 350 children in the mountains.  The Volunteers spent a full day making 8 flags from Great Britain, United States, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and of course COLOMBIA.

Each team had 3 adult Captains, and after 8 different events Brazil and New Zealand tied for 1st place.  The highlight race of all events was the LEAP FROG event where a dust storm was created with hundreds of kids leaping over one another laughing, falling and doing their best to win a medal.

Thanks to Larry Guilford each child from the top 3 teams actually received a medal and the cheers from each country yelling come on Colombia, come on Gran Britiana, go USA made it a wonderful day.

After the Olympics the children enjoyed fruit, candy, cookies and a gift from many people throughout the world that donated money to Los Angelitos de Medellin.

Thank you to all the Volunteers, Children and the good weather for a special day in the mountains of Medellin, Colombia.
