2012 was an eventful year for plenty of reasons, particularly for Brits who had several reasons to be proud of their country, the stage for some amazing sporting history. Sport wasn't the only thing that put the UK in the spotlight, the Queen's golden Jubilee brought people together from across the country to celebrate not just the Monarch but also the heritage and culture of the sovereign state.

The London Olympics was without doubt the major talking point of 2012, and a huge success for Britain, its athletes finishing 3rd in the medals table with an impressive tally.
