  1. Contest will open shortly after the Paris 2024 Closing Ceremony with design revealed in 2025. Mascots will be revealed too at the same time. Sydney 2000's logo was revealed in 1997 with the bid logo shown on the jumbotron during the handover ceremony
  2. If Saporro do get the rights to the 2030 Olympics, I'd like to see the original concept for the Tokyo Opening Ceremony included at the Sapporo Dome.
  3. Lots of coverage from swimming, basketball, track cycling and track and field
  4. If they were cancelled., they would've hosted 2032, bumping Brisbane to 2036
  5. The same will happen in Brisbane. A permanent cauldron at Southbank rather than at The Gabba
  6. Current NBA player for the Utah Jazz and French national tema and footballer for PSG and France. Logical choices for me.
  7. Williams is on CTV and hasn't featured since London 2012. Channel 7 is good. 45 live streams of every single event
  8. They awarded Paris 2024 and LA 2028 simultaenously without no competition.
  9. The 2008 cauldron will be kept alight during the Games with the Olympic Channel broadcasting a feed with the Olympic Cauldron burning.
  10. David Atkins and Ignatius Jones did the Vancouver Ceremonies
  11. Even the commentators Joh Griggs and Basil Zempilas on 7 panned the Ceremony that it didn't include the athletes being part of the main event.
  12. Hope Brisbane don't go near the directors of Gold Coast 2018.

Best Cauldron Design - London 2012 Best Placard and Costume Combo for a Parade of Nations - Beijing 2008 Best Cauldron Lighting - Barcelona 1992 Best Execution of a Parade of Nations - Athens 2004 Best Performance of a National Anthem - Sydney 2000 Outstanding Solo Performance by a Young Artist - Nikki Webster

  18. The cauldron which was used at the 2008 Summer Olympics is permanently on display outside the Bird's Nest Stadium since 2010 when it was removed 2.5 years after the Summer Games. Will Beijing re-light the 2008 Cauldron or use two cauldrons with a ceremonial one inside the stadium and the 2008 cauldron permanetly burning during the Olympics & Paralympics?
  19. Best: Sydney, Athens, London, Barcelona, SLC Worst: Torino (just a domino of fireworks), Vancouver (fourth arm missing)
