Looking back on three weeks in London for the 2012 Summer Games. There were heroic feats of athleticism, intimate moments of personal triumph, contagious kinetic energy throughout the entire city of London and a family of Oakley athletes with whom all those who worked in the Oakley Safehouse were privileged to meet and support.
