  1. I think it should be ideal sort of Incas children, showing how proud is Peru of their millenial history and culture. Children figures were "mascots" in Lillehammer '94, for instance... (Still hurting Santiago failure.... Ouch!.. snif!!!) Something like this?? Do you agree??
  2. Here we have some explanations oof the logo meaning said by the PC Commetee itself... http://www.olympic.org/news/pyeongchang-2018-launches-official-emblem/196086 http://www.pyeongchang2018.org/horizon/eng/page/sub02/sub02_01.asp
  3. The look of the Games of PC 2018 seems pretty intereseting, but I still find it too simple for the Olympics. Anyway, it's also too weak according what we have seen lately in the Winter Olympics. Remember the look of the games in Lillehammer, Salt Lake, Torino, Vancouver and recently in Innsbruck. All of them were great! Anyway, it's, for far, the weakest Korean logo we have seen. Let's remember and compare
  4. A school child could have done it better!!! I can not believe it, its really incredible!!!!
  5. I know, but it's a Pan topic for you to know the new logo. After all, if Stgo gets the games the handover will be in Toronto.
  6. The official logo for Santiago de Chile 2019 Panamerican Games bid unveiled. The official poster and motto for Santiago de Chile 2019 Panamerican Games bid unveiled "The Games are yours"
  7. Watch the full Closing Ceremony on Youtube. You have audio options and videos of the performances. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij3sgRG5sPY
  8. Now watch the full Opening Ceremony on Youtube. You have audio options and videos of the sequences: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4As0e4de-rI&list=FL5Q73za55gUevM4OUJYXwIA&index=2&feature=plpp_video
  9. Anyway Rio heavily beat Chicago!!! Don't remember yet, Mr???
  10. That's all people around the globe do!!! Why you don't????
  11. I really loved the idea of Vancouver Cauldron set up in a public space. That gives the idea that Olympics is for everyone and not only for those who pay for the tickets into the venues or clusters... If Santiago gets the Panamerican Games in 2019, I'd really love a cauldron in a main square, in the middle of the city!!!! :rolleyes: Rio should follow Vancouver concept!!!
  12. But the flame is not only for athletics but for every event! During Rio 2007 Panamerican Games they did the same what are going to repeat in 2016: the Maracana was used for both Opening and Closing ceremonies and soccer finals and Joao Avelange Stadium for athletics. That time, they just ligthed up one small cauldron inside in sun shape. For Guadalajara 2011 Panamerican Games, also they had two cauldrons, one in the ceremonies stadium where also the soccer finals was played (Omnilife stadium) and the other in the Athletic complex which was just lit when athtletics events started. She lit a symbolic cauldron in the middle of the stadium and a fireworks display started to finish lighting the main cauldron atthe top of the stadium It is the Athletic complex cauldron. Another exactly alike was at the top of the Omnilife Stadium. What can Rio do? Just light up the main cauldron in Maracana, and at the same time light the cauldron at Joao Aveange stadium simbolically...
  13. The flame was put out to move the cauldron!!!! Had the Olympic Flame gone out in the middle og the Games previously? In Montreal 1976 during a storm wind went out the flame and it was reliy by workers of the stadium!!!!! :blink: :wacko:
  14. Finally, the mistery seems to be solved: cauldron in the middle of the stadium floating. Probably it will be elevated till right the middle... We are just hours away to finish this fascinating discussion!!!! :(
  15. With this video , besides the other one that was published yesterday, together are 30 minutes out of 1 hour, so I have watched half of the ceremony 3 days before. First time that happened this. According to what I have seen so far I can asure London won't top Beijing... What about Rio 4 years time???
  16. For those who still don't know: "La gran bandera" The Great Flag segment in Barcelona OC was also a copy what Chile did in 1990 in the opening Gala for Patricio Aylwin goverment after Pinochet left the power and democracy return to the country. In this section, welcoming democracy again, a giant Chilean flag covered the court. THAT HAPPENED IN MARCH 1990!!!
  17. Dp not forget Bergisel Stadium in Innsbruck. It is the only venue in the world ahich has staged 3 Olympic Opening Ceremonies: Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976; and Winter YOG in 2012
  18. Jjajajaja you're right!!! Remember for royal wedding last year they rang with no cease!!!
  19. It's in Beijing. Totally confirmed you still don't learn to read! I was refering to the "bell" not the trumpets! >(?)
  20. Yes, but in the model revealed by Boyle, not real scale. It is at the top of one of the entrance of the stadium at the bottom of the sits. Surely it will be the entrance for the parade!
  21. If there is a multiple cauldron it would the due to the 30th Olympiad? May be one little cauldron for each Olympiad forming a cauldron complex???
