This project has been enjoyable and it has taught me the essence of Globalisation. Each picture that has been has been pinned onto the board has taught me something new and interesting, like the fact that the whole world is able to comes together for one event such as the Olympics.

Instead, it is about bringing nations together, doing what you love and trying your hardest to achieve on your own merit; which are the ultimate goals of the Olympics.
