Report Beijing 2022 Ceremonies in Beijing 2022 Ceremonies Discussions Posted January 8 15 hours ago, AustralianFan said: Munichfan posted this week in the Cauldron thread a google earth image of the Birds Nest Stadium which was excellent. This morning here are a couple more images from google earth and looks the same. Is that an ice skating rink on the stadium floor? There is also a hinge on that side-ramp …. They said in the article the stage was finished by October/November so i don't think its going to change much. If that's a huge Ice Rink then that alone would put this ceremony on a whole different level, and it would be Salt Lake City 2.0. Back in the day I was very impressed by the use of an ice rink in 2002 but I missed the fact that feat was never attempted again in other winter ceremonies. So seeing it done again by China and 20 years later when the technology has changed drastically would some high quality moments.
