The closing ceremony on 12 August was a huge party with some of the UK's biggest names in music.  Weightlifter, Luisa Peters had the honour this time round of carrying the nation's flag into the Olympic stadium.  Then, as as Jesse Jay, Tinie Tempah and the Spice Girls performed, waving Cook Islands flags pinpointed the nation's team joining in the fun.
