The countdown to London 2012 Olympics kicked off on Sunday.

Press Packer Katrina spent the day at a huge party outside Buckingham Palace in London.

Here's her report...

"I've had a great day today being a news reporter.

Crowds in London
This experience has been one of the best in my life and I never imagined I'd get to do such a thing.

Today, thousands and thousands of people gathered near Buckingham Palace for the 2012 party and I was in the thick of the action.

I interviewed Scouting for Girls, McFly and a few other celebrities and even shook Tom from McFly's hand.

I loved being in the spotlight with the cameras and going backstage watching the bands and singers.

I also met some athletes - Bradley Wiggins, Phillips Idowu and Michael Phelps.

One of the highlights of my day was getting to hold Bradley Wiggins' Olympic gold medal."
