But the pyrotechnics were just part of the spectacular culmination of Danny Boyle's opening ceremony with the best-kept secret of the night, the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron, revealed well after midnight. it was lit by seven young British athletes, each personally nominated by one of the country's greatest Olympians. The Olympic flame was carried into the stadium by Sir Steve Redgrave, the five-time gold medal-winning rower and the first of seven British Olympic heroes honoured in the closing moment of the ceremony. The other heroes were: Lynne Davies, who captained the British Olympic team in 1980 and 1984; Duncan Goodhew, who won swimming gold in 1980; Dame Kelly Holmes, who won gold at 800m and 1500m in 2004; Dame Mary Peters, who won gold in the pentathlon in 1972, Shirley Robertson, who won gold for sailing on 2000; and Daley Thompson, the decathlon champion of 1980 and 1984.
