  1. Hahaha are you dikking??? I think Daniela Mercury deserves to end the ceremony again as she did in Pan Am OC in 2007.. It was a perfect ending!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOHAJ6oD-fc
  2. Check the videos of the making of Athens 2004 OC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2dEwjo2O-o
  3. I don't speak Portuguese, but it's too similar to Spanish. What they basically say is: We are one month to go for the games. The city of Rio due its nature, is an Olympic city by itself. In Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (Lagoon) will be the rowing and rafting disciplines. Today, the national army and police took control of the security of the venues. It was estimated that 9,600 army men should have taken the control of security, but this number has been decreased by 3.000 military personel that are now out of the plan. To compensate this lack of security personel, the police officers have to work more hours that join to army forces for venues security. The latest days a police car was reached by a shot. Nevertheless this fact, the Minister of Justice say that there is no probability of a terrorist attack during the games. Bewteen 2009 and 2016 Rio has doubled the hotel capacity and now all of them are held. Rio now will have an integrated transportaton system and a new subway line, the number 4, which will get Barra de Tijuca zone. Now there is a new Olympic Museum in Rio. In the entrance there is a simulator of the beggining of a track race, to compare your speed with the speed of the fatest men on earth: Usain Bolt. The renovated port zone, will be the Olympic Boulevard during the games, and that zone will concentrate all the celebrations, concerts and parties. Also the Olympic cauldron will be located in that place, across from the Candelaria church. It wil be the very first time for the Summer Games that the cauldron will be located in a non competition place. Well, that's basically all about....
  4. We have exactly one month to go.... And little, almost nothing we know aabout the ceremonies.. what tells us that they have known to keep the secret perfectly. Four years ago, for London ceremonies,we already knew some key parts: the countryside beggining, the Industrial revolution section, the participations of James Bond and Mr. Bean and the NHS tribute... Now we know... nothing!!!!! So far, the #KeepTheSurprise has been too successful!!!!
  5. I really liked the 2007 Pan Am official song.... Where are gone those times??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCJkieyFMi4
  6. I'm not surprised that this awful song is the official one... Nowadays, most of the songs are terrible!!!!! Anyway it's disapointing, but not surprising....
  7. If the cauldron at Maracaná will be used only for the ceremonies, is quite obvious it will be on the floor...
  8. This kind of Kinetic caludron by Howe is just to suffer epilepsia are just to tigger epilepsy attacks... So so cool!!!!!!
  9. Chilean YouTuber German Garmendia from "Hola Soy German" channel, carrying the torch in Foz de Iguazú...
  10. I'm stuffed of those posts, too... Please, if someone wants to stand up for Dilma (or protest against) please, DON'T DO IT IN THE OLYMPICS FORUM....
  11. What about Vanderlei de Lima. He became wellknown worlwide due to his incident in Athens 2004 and he became a representative of the Olympic values: determination, fair play, attitude.. He got a bronze that meant gold... etc etc etc.... you know...
  12. At that point for London OC 4 years ago, we already knew the green countryside, the floor that was the map, the Industrial revolution segment, the NHS segment.... Now we barely know some pics of the floor and some strange boxes that probably will cointain water around....
  13. Personally, I think that we will be impressed again by making "human ceremonies" more than technological ones. Vancouver projecions were well received, since it was the very first ceremony based only on projections (despite it was a resource used from many years ago) But we miss Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney styles ceremonies... and may Rio could bring back that old way .... and more impressive... Despite the world class ceremony in Sochi, the aereals, the giants structures.... I insist nobody wowed about it, since it had a totally lack of innovation (It was a "Russian Vancouver" ceremony)
  14. Horrible!!!!! I really think the torch relay should be eliminated... the torch should be lightened just days before the Opening Ceremony and just arrive to the Host city... It's waste of time, money and in every edition there is fewer and fewer interest about it....
  15. Remember the cauldron of Rio 2007 Pan Am. It las also a "kinetic" cauldron... It twirled around, since it represented the sun... One of the most original cauldrons ever...
  16. For 2007 Pan Am OC in the same Maracana, the parade was cool!!! Of ocurse, it was less than the half oh the countries participatng on this Olympics... but.... it can work ayway...
  17. I had fotgotten the puppies of Glasgow OC... also one of my favorites!!!! (The only thing to remember about Glasgow OC.... the most boring ceremony ever)
  18. My favorite ones: ALBERTVILLE 92 (who oesn´t?) SALT LAKE 2002 (I love everything about the Opening of Salt Lake) GUADALAJARA 2011 The model was repeated in Veracruz 2014 Central American Games and TORONTO 2015 that was technological and innovative by using the led pannels... ANY EXPECTATION FOR RIO 2016????
  19. By the way "Human Olympic rings" ... How could it be the nations bearer??? Any expectation? RIO 2007 PAN AM OC... Very simple, but so original SYDNEY 2000: too simple for me.... ATHENS 2004... Strongly remindedme Mexico 1968 nations bearer BARCELONA 92 : Original,, but I still don't know what they represent BEIJING 2008 : Too simple as Sydney LONDON 2012: Original but too small (acording to me) It was slightly copied in Baku 2015 OC
  20. In Atlanta the rings were not formed by kids, but the number 100... The rings in this picture are from La Habana Pan Am OC and they were fomed by young dancers, not kids....
  21. All those you mentiones are made by TECHNOLOGY.... of course they'll be perfect!!!! If we talk about humans is another thing and I think it's even greater!!!!
  22. Who said the Olympic rings formed by humand are 80's style??? Not at all!!!! Just remember SOCHI CC SINGAPORE YOG OC ATHENS CC
