Disney Movie Summer Games: Daily Update (Aug. 13)

Check out what will be the last update on the Olympic Summer Games, presented by Disney Family Movies:

Monday, August 13th Disney Family Movies "Play At The Next Level" Sweepstakes Summer Games Update: After Team USA Men's Basketball finished its inevitable triumph with a gold medal, thus matching their female counterparts, and after the final gold medal of the London 2012 Summer Games was awarded -- to Laura Asadauskaite of Lithuania, for the modern decathlon -- London took an incredibly well deserved bow with a spectacular Closing Ceremony that included Annie Lennox, the Who, and, yes, the Spice Girls.

What will your memory of these London 2012 Summer Games be? US swimmer Michael Phelps (on Twitter: @MichaelPhelps) going out on top? The #FierceFive -- including Gabby "The Flying Squirrel" Douglass (on Twitter: @gabbydouglas) sticking the landing and winning gold? US swimmer Missy Franklin (on Twitter: @franklinmissy) going gold for the first time, or Team USA Women's soccer three-peating with gold, including an incredible defeat of Team Canada in the semi-finals? The inspiring running of South African Oscar Pistorious (on Twitter: @oscarpistorious) or the inspiring running of Jamaican Usain Bolt (on Twitter: @usainbolt)? Or was it simply the parade of athletes, nations coming together, in the Closing Ceremony, that will stay with us, reminding us of the enduring goodness of competition and respect, the Summer Games and London 2012? 302 nations, 32 sports, two weeks. And so the world looks to Rio. See you there in 2016!
