We’re a year away from the start of the 2012 Olympics, and excitement is already building. Next month, the brand new basketball arena will be officially opened for a week long invitational tournament, with Great Britain competing against France, China, Australia, Croatia and Serbia.

Seeing as there’s only a year to go, it makes perfect sense that the flood of Olympic-related advertising hype kicks off now, and adidas is leading the charge.
