  1. I think Nothern bids have to forget to host the games. Very difficult after Guadalajara and Toronto. The best option for South America to host the games is Santiago. No doubt on it! Santiago has been the only bid to be officially presented on PASO in Mexico. Besides the ambassador for the bid is Fernando Gonzalez, medalist in Tennis in Beijing and Athens.
  2. I remember have watched Atlanta's dress rehearsal parts on TV. Even in Barcelona there was many international media on the rehearsal. Since Athens, that came into a national secret. I remember I red that year that some people who attended the dress reharsal in OAKA Stadium were selling information to the international press. What Korean did with Chinese by airing images of the dress rehearsal was not fair, but anyway I was eager looking for those images!!! I think Vancouver Opening Ceremony has been the most secret ever, because none knew antyhing until the very moment of the broadcast. For t
  3. I did not watch the NBC broadcast, Im from Chile... I watched the international one. In some videos on youtube there are segment fom antoher direction such as the Klepsidra segment that was shown on Korean TV...
  4. I can not believe it!!! Why we could not see that on TV??? I always thought that that part was a big fail in the ceremony... After Bjork song, they started inmediately with the video previous to the olympic runner of "Athens to Athens" segment... Don't forget that the flying segment previous to light the flame in Beijing was taken from the Athens flying athletes....
  5. Cidade Maravilhosa was sang at the 2007 Panamerican Games Opening Ceremony and it was used for one of the bid clips shown on IOC meeting in 2009. It would be so repetitive. Brazil has an incredible diversity and a extremely rich culture, full of songs... I think the handover in London will bring warm, color and joyfull to the cold Britishers...
  6. I think a cauldron coming out from water would remain inmediately Sydney┬┤s ligthing. This image is too fresh in our memories to do that just two version after the first time. I don't like the idea of an internal cauldron like Seoul '88. I think this time cauldron has not deal with water to be ignited. After Sydney we have seen many cauldron on the water: Rio 2007 Pan American Games, the cauldron was a sun cirsular shape rolling on a waterfall, Special Olympics in Shangai, also in 2007, was a ring shape cauldron into the water, YOG Singapore cauldron, too... A firework display have been seen m
  7. According to the images have been posted here, we can guess that the ceremonies's colors would be cold ones, predominating blue. As Boyle said, he was inspired by Frankestein, I think he reffers to the play which is carried out in blue colors, too.
  8. /\/\ I think Nacho, that would be too Vegas-y. Think Bellagio. And they already had "dancing fountains" but smaller ones Maybe... But water should more active this time and not pasive as in Athens was. In Guangzhou Opening Ceremony there were jet skies, sinc swim and waterfalls.... We have seen more "active" water in newest ceremonies....
  9. Wow!!! What a pic!!11 It gives us the idea of how is it going to be! Water around the main stage and a movile piece of it on the core... Interesting! Looks like Athens. but the water around the stage I think this time would not be a quiet one like in Athens, but active such the waterfalls we saw at the Opening Ceremony in Guangzhou Asian Games in 2010 (look at the pic) May the water have some projections on the waterfalls... Dear! I can not wait anymore!!!!
  10. Ok... So, analyzing the Heatherwick artwork I can imagine the design of the cauldron... Curves, layers and nails... Can you imagen a mixture of all of this in just one tower to hold the Olympia sacred symbol???? It seems so vanguardistic!!!
  11. I meant: THE DESIGNER of the Olympic cauldron... Oops!!!
  12. According what I have seen on the web, the artwork of Thomas Heatherwick, tge seignder of the Olympic cauldron, it should be full of curves and layers. On the web there is a concept of how the cauldron could be. Visit: http://liamhoughton.com/gallery/index.php?album=Design/olympics#5
  13. I insist in the idea od double cauldron... I'd like to have to if Santiago gets the Panamerican Games, One in the stadium and one in downtown. London could do so, that is the way to say "London has the games" and not only "The Olympic parks has the games", can you see???
  14. It has a speciall sense, It is the very first time in history that the Handover is for an South American city!!!!!
  15. What I am really eager for the Closing is to watch the Rio 2016 handover!!! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3895157378913&set=a.1004739440271.2000789.1278424561&type=3&theater https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3895157378913&set=a.1004739440271.2000789.1278424561&type=3&theater
  16. SANTIAGO, CHILE 2019, XVIII PANAMERICAN GAMES

  17. That's what I meant. Vancouver in comparison with Beijing was quite "simple"
  18. I don't imagine the lighthing. Maybe we are creating a lot of expectatives and it could be quite simple as Vancouver did. Can you imagine a "better" version of the lighting in Shenzhen for the Universiade FISU Games in 2011 when they set on fire the athtetic track and the fire went on till the cauldron?? I don't like the idea of a "internal" cauldron, since Olympics have to be share with everyone (Indeed, the motto is "Everyone's London 2012", so it would be counterproductive) Remember the "selfish" cauldron in Seoul??? No man!!!! The idea of a second or external cauldron, as in Vancouver,

  20. Does anyona have some new information about the BEIJING 2008 Ceremonies? We are less than one year left and there's little or nothing information about it. I know the Ceremonies are, always, a sort of State Secrecy as happened in Sydney, Athens and lately in Torino and Rio de Janeiro. I think they'll surprised us and the ceremonies are expected to be the best ever held in Olympic History. Otherwise, Barcelona and Sydney ceremonies wil remain as the best ones.
