Ahead of the London 2012 Games, here’s a look at ten of the best songs which have inspired athletes to ‘achieve their dreams,’ ‘triumph over insurmountable odds’ and ‘become instant heroes’ over the past 30 years. Tina Arena The Flame (Sydney, 2000) Featuring the obligatory key change, mass children’s choir and big-lunged glory note, “The Flame” may have adhered to every rule in the Olympic theme handbook, but was far superior to Sydney 2000’s other official anthems from teen idols Nikki Webster (the sickly sweet “We’ll Be One”) and Vanessa Amorosi (the Mariah-aping “Heroes Live Forever”).
