(Updated 5:26am 13th August 2012)
Pirate FM has learnt a Cornish dancer helped close the Olympics.
Tara Walker from Callington performed in the closing ceremony on Sunday night.
The instructor who has performed tap and ballet since she was little told us that originally details on the London 2012 bash were being kept under wraps: "I had to go through an audition process which I then found out by email that I'd got through. Definitely jumps for joy and screaming, lots of screaming. It's absolutely amazing. It's a really amazing experience which I'm lucky to be a part of.
"It's quite different as it's so big. It's like mass choreography. It's just an experience, a whole new experience which is good. You get to experience new style and different places and working with different people."
