Glad you enjoyed it. The countdown was from 65,000 years to 0 but it was something special. Talkback radio in Sydney criticised too much emphasis on Aboriginal people at the Opening Ceremony.
Liked the Indigenous segments especially the welcome plus it was fitting that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags were raised at the Ceremony too. Overall it was much better than the embarrassment of Glasgow but not as good as Melbourne 2006. The flying whale at the finale was something special.
I'd give it a 7.0/10
