The BBC has unveiled an animated advert for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The UK is seen as a giant stadium with Olympic athletes preparing and competing in a range of landscapes.

Scenes include:

  • Swimmers battling it out in lanes created by buoys on a net cast by a fisherman;
  • A BMX rider preparing at the edge of a cliff;
  • Track cyclists racing around quarries;
  • Sprinters and gymnasts going through their paces on streets.

The full-length (2mins 40secs) version of the animation will be shown at 7.30pm on Tuesday 3 July on BBC One.
