Google Doodles - 5th August 2012 - London 2012

On the 5th of August 2012 Google changed their logo to the London 2012 Synchronised Swimming doodle. This is the second time in Doodle History that Google have used Synchronised Swimming as a logo the previous time was in 2004. In the London 2012 Synchronised Swimming image there are eight swimmers. These swimmers have synchronised to form the letter "o" in the Google doodle.

The rest of the Google words seem to float in the water. In the reflection of the water you can see the shadow of the swimmers, and doodle.
