  1. 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
  2. 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....
  3. By Marca Claro fanpage in Facebook, you can see the competitions live!!! That's the coolest transmition of the Games ever!!!
  4. 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
  5. All Latin America. Countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Peru, Republica Dominicana, Uruguay y Venezuela. Live coverage by Marca Claro Sports. http://olimpicos.marcaclaro.com/inicio/
  6. Also I want to mention the placards bearers of Guadalakara 2011 Pan Am. Very Mexican and traditional. They were replied at Veracruz 2014 Central American Games.
  7. Ok..... Some days left for the Opening Ceremony, time to recapitulate some props which are classical in every Opening ceremony,.. I want to remember the Nation plaques bearers of the WG... Sapporo 1972 Lake Placid 1980. A little more stylized Sarajevo 1984 --- USA... "SAD" paritcipation? Not at all! Albertville 1992.... The walking snow crystal balls.... My favorite ones by far! (so far) Nagano 1998... The "Children nation plaques" ... Original! Salt Lake 2002.. The Nations plaque
  8. I can not understand why NBC airs the Ceremony with such delay when all the world have seen it already... Thanks Marca Claro, once more, the broadcast by Internet will be complete and with 6 differents channels live to choose what you want to see... and all live and then on demand!!!! Marca Claro the best coverage ever!!!!
  9. Thank You!!! America Movil through Marca Claro webpage will broadcast the Games... Don't know about TV, but on the web it will be the official broadcaster... It will be he very first time we weill be able to watch the Olympic Ceremonies by Facebook Live!!!!
  10. Please.. does anyone know what TV channel will broadcast this Games in South America? The latest two games in 2010 and 2014 were broadcasted by ESPN... but so far I haven't seen any promo about them... I even don't know if Claro Sport will broadcast them bi Internet to All Latin American countries or just Mexico (as they did with 2015 Pan Am Games) I just need an answer because anxiety is taking me over.....!
  11. It's so exciting to see the spoilers, because they are images in isolation and the point is how that part is articulated with the rest of the show.... The screen props could be part of the ceremony itself... We do not know yet, since it takes part of an art exhibition.... so it would not be a spoiler... Let's see what that "fire pole" means and how it is articulated with the rest of the ceremony,,,,, I want to see more!!!!
  12. They seem sort of bloated doves.... something like this... ???? (Nagano 1998 OC)
  13. Yes... very annoying, unwise... But let's see this Korea's marching as a sign of a true Olympic Truce in a very tense moment... anyway it will make history!!! But it's not fair!!!
  14. Surely they have a fan in the pole as we have seen since Beijing...
  15. I don't agree both Koreas to march unified as they did in Sydney, Athens and Torino. It has been a hard work of SK to get here... and the permaent threatening of their Northern neighboors has only blurried the organization... NK do not deserve to march as the unified team.... Since we all know that Kim Jong-Il has any intention at all to make peace with SK...
  16. They plan to last 2 hours by "hurrying" athletes during the parade... How can they obbey the "walk fast!" command in such time of enjoy and hapiness??? It may works with Korean people, but not for people from all the globe... It surely will last, at least, 2.5 hours ... Unless the artistic segment be too short... even shorter than Athens and Rio (the shortest ones)... But now we knoe that we are going to watch another "low budget" ceremony... Rio overcame it perfectly!!! and the show was memorable!!!!
  17. Are they protective pannels from the cold?? or may be they used for projections, too????
