The London 2012 Olympics are now exactly one year away, with the opening ceremony taking place on 27th July 2012. In celebration of this, we’ve had a look through our birth records and have found one British child born with the surname Olympics.
Michael Olympics was born – quite fittingly – in Athens, Greece. Athens was the host of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.
Although he wasn’t born in the UK, Michael’s birth is listed because it was registered with the British Consul. The General Register Office index of British nationals born overseas 1818 – 2005 is available at findmypast.co.uk and can be searched at the same time as births registered in England and Wales 1837 – 2006.
