  1. Not very sure about those horses. I suppose it represents a huge troika. Also for what i've read there will be also a huge choir of Russian kids from every corner of the country which will be taking part in the show. Children chorus in different places??? Takes me back to Nagano "Ode to joy" and "Choir of nations" in London....
  2. I think the "Dancing Onions" are the presentation segment before the parade, as it was the "Native welcome" in Vancouver... Still seems weird...
  3. Yes. I aways felt tha poem "We are more" with its sense of an open and diverse country and, overal the part when he says "We are north, true and free" is a hit in the eye tu the US... Personally I think we have not to surprise to see the Soviets elements in the Ceremony... Russian still fell themselves like Soviets, yet. Just watch Kazan ceremonies the music and the concepts.. not so far than 1980 Moscow Olympics... Specially the "space" concept where, again, is a hit in the eye to the US. Putin is still a sort of dictator in the Internet era... Russians are proud of their history and, on th
  4. Thanks A lot!!! In Chile any TV Channel is going to cover the WOG... Really thanks!!!!!
  5. The tittle of the videos says "1980 Soviet Union Olympics Opening" Big fail!!!
  6. Ice wasn't in use since Salt Lake 2002... It will be great!! I can't wait!!!!
  7. Is the first pic a real spoiler picture? Or is it from another event? But, all of us know that Kazan was a "rehearsal" of Sochi, indeed!!! I don´t expect something so different. It was so cool!!!
  8. Thanks a lot!!! Please, when there are pics on Instagram try to convert them in other format. No all of us have Instagram and, peesonally, I really hate it. I I'll never create an account... Thanks again!!!
  9. Rosario, Argentina to bid for 2023 Pan Am Games Remember Rosario was withdrawn instead La Punta for 2019 race. Now, with Rosario running, and 2 possible bids (Santiago and Medellín) 2023 seems again to be South American Pan Ams. http://www.impulsonegocios.com/contenidos/2014/01/07/Editorial_28859.php
  10. Which gave us a great posibility to be a strong contende (REAL strong this time....) And the race should be between Santiago and Medellín...
  11. Anyway, the totally perfect syncronization, bordering madness, reminds us totallitarian regimes. Just pay attention at the Mass Games in North Korea, totally mass perfect, but ... oh! such poor people!!!! They make it for a box of groceries which includes a chicken, the big prize. Look at the Opening ceremonies for FIFA World Cup in Argentina 1978, under a military regime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23oWt_gcrTQ
  12. Nice!!! I like it. Nothing new, but I like it.... Will this show be involved as a part of the Opening Ceremony?? May be after the lighting of the cauldron.... I think an important part of the display are the areal shoots where we could see the Olympic rings formed by the water...
  13. We have discussed about Tulsa or an US bid. Is it official? If they are merely speculations, we shouldn't duscuss so much until it is. As fas as I know, Vásquez Raña wants to encourage US to bid, but no ofiicial response has been given, yet... BTW: I don't want any US city for 2023 race, Santiago would be totally lost... Even with Tulsa, I think.
  14. Lesser event? the second sport event with more numbers of SPORT EVENTS after the Olympics. More than Commonwealth Games, More tha Asian Games... "Lesser" post, indeed, "lesser" information about Pan Ams
  15. The fact of bidding with an US city is they want to locate the Pan Am Games in the US Sport map. They watch the Pan Ams like "The B Team Games" and I don't think the Pan Am in US soil change their minds about these continental Games. We still expect that 2023 Pan Am could be South American Games, the second in a row. An US bid lay to rest any chance to Santiago to become a host city....
  16. So... I guess the spouts should be in colors, don't they??? For moments I thought those rings could be fire rings on water at Sydney and Salt Lake style....
  17. The Opening Ceremony of SEA Games in Myanmar FULL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYknHX0h3XA&list=FL5Q73za55gUevM4OUJYXwIA&index=1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYknHX0h3XA&list=FL5Q73za55gUevM4OUJYXwIA&index=1
  18. Anyway, we have not bidded for those games. Bad information...
  19. Honey, the pictures you have seen IS the cauldron ITSELF!!!!! NO secrets this time....
  20. A new pic from SSC with the ignited cauldron... Taken just yesterday evening, Sochi time.
  21. Precisely, the huge mistake that Piñera goverment did at 2019 bid was taken it as a political issue and not as a sport issue. Anyway, if the new goverment give the support again, despite of being a political issue, may be not as notorious as it was. It's just a merely suposition of myself. If it will. it will be in responde to the sea territorial issue we have with Peru, wichi its final desition will be known next January in La Haya (which, honestly, I think Perú will win)
  22. As far as I know, we have not bidded for any othetr sport event but Pan Am. Lima may be, not Santiago.
  23. Pacific Games?? No, we have not bidded for those games.
  24. I think is too early to talk about possible bids. Anyway, after the epic fail of Santiago in Toronto for 2019 games, the president of Chilean Olympic Committee (COCH) has said that Santiago will bid for 2023 Games. He stated: "Chile tomó un camino y ese camino no lo debe abandonar. Si lo abandona, todo lo que se ha hecho no sirve de nada y es un volver a partir de nuevo" Translation: "Chile has taken a road and we have not to leave it. If we do, everything we have done wil be useless and it will be like start from square one" http://www.adnradio.cl/noticias/deportes/presidente-del-coch-chil
