Adorned in his uniform with a ShiftPlanning flag stretched out behind him, the ShiftPlanning Wizard beamed with pride at the Olympic Opening Ceremony last night. Joining thousands of athletes from all over the world, the Wizard watched the torch make its way to Olympic Stadium.
“The Stadium was filled with excitement and anticipation! It is such an honor to be one of over 10,000 athletes from 204 countries standing here today.” – The ShiftPlanning Wizard

Billions of people all over the world watched in awe as the London 2012 Ceremony celebrated British culture, the tradition of the Games and welcomed every nation to the Games.
