Wiggins didn't actually ring the bell. The rope was just a prop. It would seem that the bell was rung 4 times during the opening." When the stadium was empty the bell sounded wonderful, but when full of people the crowd soaked up the sound."

Sadly, the International Olympic Committe has just blocked the video of the bell being rung on copyright grounds.

If it's any consolation, it was a pretty poor recording with the microphone far too close to the bell, which cause a good deal of distortion
