New Delhi: To mark the third day of the London Olympics 2012, Google has replaced its usual logo with a new doodle - London 2012 fencing. The new doodle shows two fencers fighting against each other using bladed weapons.
The letter 'L' in "Google" is shown as one of the bladed weapons being used by one of the fencers, while a helmet on the head of a fencer is modishly depicted as the first 'O' of the word "Google". The rest of the letters are placed in the playing area near the boundary. The London 2012 fencing doodle is the fourth London Olympics doodle.
