AP's Gerald Imray, one of dozens of AP reporters who have been covering the London Olympics, offers up some of its more memorable moments.
Usain Bolt's teammate, Yohan Blake, on Jamaica's world record in the men's 4x100 relay:
"We're not normal. To run 36 (seconds) is not normal. We're flying. People call us robots. I said, no, we're from space. We drop from the sky like Mr. Bean. Because when he started, he dropped out of the sky. It's just the fun stuff, you know, that we always do. I'm from Mars because I'm not normal. I'm the beast."
"I've told Yohan he needs to stop talking like that, because people are going to put him in a straitjacket."
