  1. The Paralympic mascot fits well due to that the Winter Olympics are taking place during Lunar New Year festivities.
  2. 7's Sydney 2000 promos aired as early as 1999 were memorable.
  3. The 2008 Closing Ceremony is up on the Olympic Channel
  4. Tokyo should put on a fantastic Opening Ceremony on 24 July 2020
  5. The full Beijing 2008 Opening Ceremony uploaded by Olympic Channel to celebrate 11 years since that Opening Ceremony
  6. Some rare finds. The much-criticised Gold Coast 2018 Closing Ceremony is no where to be seen.
  7. Milan-Cortina was an interesting bid with the Ceremonies held in different venues. Cortina hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics and Milan has never hosted and Olympics yet
  8. 2032 could go to Asia/Oceania. Got a feeling Brisbane has it in the bag. Brisbane 2032 was given the green light yesterday.
  9. Can't find the Gold Coast Ceremonies at all. Sadly the Closing was criticised by many Aussies on Twitter by host broadcaster 7 for not showing the athletes.
  10. Like Sydney, the Beijing Cauldron was removed from the stadium and is now just outside the Bird's Nest.
  11. 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
