    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    Starting new thread. PanAm, please do NOT overload the folder. Do NOT feel that you have to load/share every Ceremony in every language. It just gums up the works.

    Ceremonies on UTube, Part 3

    WOW! Another spectacular show from China! Can't wait for Yimou's shows for 2022!!

    TOKYO 2020 Venue Plan

    Well, the IOC moves the 2020 marathons and walking races to Sapporo. https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1086013/olympic-marathon-moved-to-sapporo So, maybe San Francisco can still get into the 2028 act by staging the same -- but SF's course will be VERY hilly.

    2020 Tokyo Olympic Cauldron

    Well, Baku 2015 also sort of did it -- even though supposedly that was an "eclipse."

    And here is The Daily Beast's take on the Paris 2024 logo: https://www.thedailybeast.com/with-impeachment-looming-trump-is-threatening-to-sue-everybody-who-pisses-him-off?ref=home&fbclid=IwAR1Tnp2y8VwwkBfgDC_Xjo_Yx6tIJoRdTsujJUR1fDiNWSqd5K0zczwWD0I

    OK!! I got here first!! Just came across this. It's not official; je pense some Olympic dreamer, but still...it's the start of the 2024 races... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tyz-P60UDRE&feature=endscreen

    With orange color, it would also be a perfect Halloween image of a flame against a full harvest moon.

    The website has also pointed out that the dark mode was purposely designed to use less energy. Possibly another Olympic first!! (And availability in the Light and Dark modes allows it to apply to all shades of the human complexion!!)
  10. But Marianne Faithful doesn't perform anymore.

    Yoshi, the 2 organizations are slowly merging. What used to be the USOC is now called the USOPC. How far behind can other countries be?

    Paris 2024

    Considering how totally underwhelming the last 4 of the last 5 Games have been, this is like a breath of fresh air. I mean, we don't want to drown in a crush of OVER-creativity.

    The "medal" allusion though, I think, is the weakest of the 3 resonances. I'd say it's more a "globe"; and also that's why they chose green as her hair -- but didn't want to do the whole "green" Planet earth thingie though -- so they went with "medal" instead. (But a "climate change" message with the logo wouldn't have been too bad-- adter all, the last big climate conference was in Paris!! So now, will the 2024 medals look like that??
  14. Robert, the face very distinctly (per the COJO) represents Marianne, the other symbol of France (after the Eiffel, the Rooster, the Fleur-de-Lys and the Guillotine).

    The beret's (or the baguette's) missing on this one. LA can go for the Strike-3 theme more strongly, which this one only hints at. (Actually, I was thinking of a Nike-LAngel visage (like, x3 or something) for 2028; and it could still be after this one.)

    Paris 2024

    I saw a wrong one. But this is a take-off of Albertville 1992 & the old Sherwin-Williams paints logo. It's OK. The last 3 Winter Games have been AWFUL; and this one is at least better than those and of London 2012 also.

    I've seen the logo earlier. Wasn't sure though. IT looks like it's by Seurat -- a very Pointillist logo!!

    Looks the same to me. The IPC is a crazy organization. They spend so much for all their ridiculous Heriage Flame lighting ceremonies; yet can't decide to stick with one, simple dignified one. I think it's an organization that just sucks all those who can't work for the IOC.

    Paris did NOT bid for 2004.

    2030 Olympic Winter Games Bids

    With NBC's current $7.75 BILLION-dollar contract ending with 2032 (which it looks like will be in the East Asian/East Oz time zone; might locking in the 2030 and 2034 WOG sites simultaneously provide for a $10 billion contract? Or is that huge contract now a thing of the past since prime-time live broadcast isn't the only platform anymore??

    Tokyo 2020 Ceremonies

    So, will the national anthems and the Olympic hymn at Opening/Closing and the medal ceremonies, be done karaoke style?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQJguzrAAZk LOL!!
  23. Where are the NO BRISBANE OLYMPICS'ers?? Time to come out now!! And this would all but kill a Jakarta-Shanghai-Korea bid for the same year, and a Durban bid for at least until 2040.
  24. I was just wondering how much Beijing will spend on the 2022 Ceremonies, just to top 2008 and Sochi 2014. I will not be satisfied if they don't spend less than $350 million on the 2022 Ceremonies!!
