London Olympics 2012 is in full gear, and London is literally at the center of international attention, now.

A very interesting infographic provides a fleeting glimpse at Olympics 2012 and the city of London.

The infographic reveals a number of interesting facts about Olympics 2012. For instance, a total of 17,000 athletes are taking part in the event, which is being covered by 20,000 journalists. The number of countries represented at the occasion is 205 this year, making it an event of truly global nature.

The number of tickets that have been sold are expected to be 8 million, whereas 500,000 spectators are expected to watch the games.

The newly built Olympic stadium is the world’s lightest stadium, built for this purpose. It can accommodate 80,000 spectators.

When it comes to computing technology, Taiwan-based PC maker Acer has been able to grab the massive opportunity to provide the computing needs of the event. The company is charged with furnishing 10,000 desktops, 1,000 laptops and 900 servers for the Games, effectively making it the key tech partner for the event.

Due to Olympics 2012, London is naturally going to experience an economic boom. New jobs to the tune of 12,500 have been created for the games. 10 kilometers of new roads have been laid down for the event. Whereas the event is expected to cost a whopping £20 billion, this figure is going to pale in comparison with the fact that the event is going to bolster London’s economy by an expected £80 billion by 2015!

The sheer number of people who are at London for the games can be gauged from the amounts of food they need to consume. According to the infographic, 25,000 loaves of bread, 232 tonnes of potatoes, 82 tonnes of sea-food, 31 tonnes of poultry items and 75,000 litres of milk will be required to feed the people at London Olympic Village.

While Olympics, in itself, is a huge event and puts a lot of pressure on the host country, it eventually brings a lot of jobs and revenue to that country. And so, while London may be financially constrained to pitch up a successful show like this, in the long-run it will be an economic blessing for the city. The infographic, in its entirely, is posted below.
