  1. Two days after, I was able to watch the Closing... It continues the tendence that has been given since London which is the Closing Ceremony is sometimes (or even) better than the Opening Ceremony... There were spectaculaar moments such as the led pagodas, the turtle segment and the a little psychodelic "time" segment.... Demostration of how modern Korea is and how it embraces the present future and traditions all together... I really liked since segments sometimes seemed to be prepared for the Opening... The drones again seemed so arificial made for the TV... I

  4. My review. I have three words to describe it: simple, elegant and emotional. The intro video came back the non-written tradition of recap the past Games (that was done at the Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Atlanta, Athens and London) very original the posters on walls, planes and magazines… I liked both intro segments. At some points it quite reminded me the OC of Kuala Lumpur SEA Games due to the rounded shape stage and the projections on it. The Athletes Parade was incredibly punctual, fast, nimble and entertaining. We never had time to get bored as it happens in other Pa

  9. Just some minutes away from another Olympic Opening Ceremony, this time I will recapitulate some Winter Games cauldrons and the way how they were lit.... Inssbruck 1976. The distinctive feature of this lit, was the second cauldron. Since the caudron in Innsbruck was lit for a second time just with 12 years apart. In 2012 a third cauldron was added due to the Winter YOG. Lake Placid 1980. The first mechanical winter Cauldron. After it was lit, it went up to the top pf the structure. Sarajevo 1984. Lit by Sadra Dubravcic, the torch
  10. I am expecting to see a good show, colorfull and entertaining... I am forgeting about watching a total "wow show" a la Beijing 2008... since till the Regional Games (Pan Am, SEA Games etc) have reached the level of the Olympic shows, so every year we can see a spectacular Olympic style show... I liked Rio 2016 Ceremony since it was vivid, simple but too well done with amazing talent and creativity! .... Let's add now another Olympic Ceremony to our files....
  11. By Marca Claro fanpage in Facebook, you can see the competitions live!!! That's the coolest transmition of the Games ever!!!
  12. Now I will recapitulate the Rings Formations segments on the Opening Ceremonies of the WG. Sarajevo 1984. It seems to be the very first ring formation segment for the WG. Calgary 1988. There were not a ring formation segment itself, but ther were made up by the attending audience by wearing those ponchos creating the olympic flag as a human mosaic. Also they made up the year "88" from the Look of the Games. Albertville 1992. There were not a ring formation segment either, but they were projected on the floor. I think, the very first rings p
