July 6, 2005: Some 20 days from now, the 2012 London Olympics will begin. But on this day seven years ago, the whole journey started -- with the International Olympic Committee giving England's signature city the Games ahead of fellow finalist Paris.

And oh, were these Londoners in Trafalgar Square pleased.
