Talk about lax security. Imagine if terrorists were able to get in so close to the Olympic delegations, there would have been a true tragedy. This is a big blunder by the London Olympics officials and shows how security is not being taken seriously enough. 

 A girl wearing a bright-red blouse gate-crashed the march of the Indian Olympic team at the opening ceremony, infuriating the guests and embarrassing the host’s security staff.

The company came out of the blue for the Indian delegation comprising around 40 athletes and 11 officials, acting chef de mission Brig PKM Raja was quoted as saying by the Times of India newspaper.

First a man, whom the Indians thought to be a member of the organizing committee or a security person, asked them to let the girl walk in front of them. The Indians thought the girl was also one of the organizers. After they all entered the Olympic Stadium, she fell back and walked next to the Indian flag-bearing wrestler Sushil Kumar.
Indian newspaper The Asian Age identifies the female as Mathura Honey, a post-graduate from the city of Bengaluru. It says the woman has been living in London lately and had reported her Olympic opening stunt on her Facebook account. The latter has since been deactivated, the newspaper says.
