    2022 Mascots

    Soohorang can still sit on his throne in peace, to be honest. But they're a nice attempt. Panda will sell well with the kids. Also most of the jokes I see online are comparisons of the Panda and lantern boy with some vidya/anime/movie characters

    2022 Mascots

    Mascot of the paralympics is an anthropomorfic lantern child. Fits with the fact the winter games will be happening somewhere around the Lunar New Year celebrations.

    2022 Mascots

    And here it is. They went for a panda. So i guess they decided to stick with those guys from the handover. Yeah...i will need to see them in action before I start to like them.

    Marathon test event held recently in the suroundings of the New National Stadium, which allowed us to get some nice aerial views. Also the running track is finally showing its colors.

    2022 Mascots

    Chinese websites have been talking these days about the Olympic mascots going to be unveiled very soon. https://www.ppsport.com/article/news/682544.html However, according to Xinhua, it appears they are actually going to be unveiled tomorrow Tuesday, after a year of competition. http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2019-09/16/c_138396332.htm IMO Soohorang left big shoes to fill, even for Miraitowa (even though the later is slowly getting more popular in Japan). Let's see what China comes up with.

    Qatar 2022

    Yikes. Its as if they weren't even sure if they would end up hosting the thing for real or not they literally did the logo at last second. When I thought this World Cup couldn't get any worse...

    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    Not an olympic ceremony, but its the opening ceremony of an event called the Asian Culture Carnival, held earlier this year in Beijing's Bird Nest. Massive show as expected from the chinese and maybe a small taste of what's to come for 2022?

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Cauldron

    The idea sounds pretty good, now it remains to see how they will execute it, as long as its different and more original from its Rio counterpart. I just hope they dont do another small cauldron for the ecologic message, though this seems to be an obsession from Marco Balich only (he did it in Lima 2019 too). Also they're following the trend of putting an external cauldron in a public place like Rio did, which pretty much confirms the cauldron in the stadium won't be visible outside. Probably its for the best given part of the roof is made of wood.

    Finally. Though this also might mean there's no more turning back.
  19. No. China got violent with Tibet months before the 2008 games and the IOC didn't moved a single finger. Also, China keeps doing stuff such as sending the Ughyur into reeducation camps, bullying Taiwan out of economic treaties/international recognition whenever they can and supporting Venezuela's government and contributing to the mass exodus of their people, etc. If the IOC ever had an inch of humanity, they would had never given them the 2008 games to begin with.

    Lima 2019

    This was the whole opossite of Tokyo handover. While Rio closing was so boring/dull the 2020 handover was actually what saved that ceremony, the Santiago handover was so bad it almost wrecked the good effort done by peruvians. Chile should really just rely to Fivecurrents or Marco Balich again for their ceremonies since their national show production shows are absolute crap as seen already in the Copa America ceremonies (2014 Odesur was okay though). Peru 2019 left big shoes to be filled for chileans, ceremonies-wise.

    Lima 2019

    Hell no. Toronto handover while a bit boring was better than this. Most chileans online seem embarassed. Barely any display of culture and just a glorified concert of hip hop music by the Power Peralta bros. You can watch the closing here.

    Lima 2019

    Yikes. Very awful handover. What the hell, Chile. The only good part was the anthem. Even Birmigham had a better handover than this atrocity.

    Lima 2019

    Very nice closing ceremony, I even liked some parts more than the actual opening, specially the dances of each region of Peru. Now the speeches come and then, the handover to Santiago 2023.
