TorchbearerAA's Achievements


Silver (4/16)



  1. It's sad that the 'normal' foreign spectators are likely to be banned and the foreign spectators from sponsors, media, IOC, NOCs etc will be welcome. How many foreign spectaros exactly normally are visiting the Olympics? There are 1 million tickets available for overseas visitors. It's lilely visitors have more tickets per person, so maybe around 150,000 to 200,000? Except the sponsor guests etc.
  2. Hi,

    Are the tickets you were wanting to sell/trade still with you. I was planning to have a whatsapp group where it becomes easier for trade to happen easily.


     Do let me know if you'd be interested to join. Cheers!


  3. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is the flagbearer for Jamaica.
  4. First there was a video on Youtube with pictures of the Sydney 2000 OTR and sung by a man (so not the song by Tina Arena). After it was removed from Youtube never found this song again. Anyone remember this song and can you give me the name (or place where to find the video now)?
  5. I am really going to miss Claudia Bokel.
  6. I am interested in your swimming tickets on Aug 8 if they are finals tickets. Can you give me more information. Thank you.

      Hi, yes the tickets are for the finals.

      I paid € 130 per ticket my self (because of 20% fees of the ATR). Do you have PayPal? It makes it easy to transfer money. Do you want me to send the tickets to you? If so I will inform how much it will cost.

  7. During the opening ceremony of the IOC session the IOC members were all wearing those green/white ties. Is this the first time this is happening? Cannot remember saw it before.
  8. The look of the Games is not that much in the Aquatics centre. Nog pictures yet from the diving venue from inside?
  9. Because some friends cannot go to Rio I have some tickets left: Swimming finals August 8th (2 tickets, category C) Equestrian final dressage team August 12th (1 ticket, category B ) Diving semi final 3m men August 16th (2 tickets, category D) If interested in any of the tickets, please contact me. I have them all in hand. Leaving Thursday, so can send them tomorrow or hand them over in Rio.
  10. From people who watched the ceremony live or via internet, is it true there is a LGBT section in the ceremony? Maybe you can answer in a hidden message so no spoilers.
  11. I'd like to be very well prepared. So I like to ask if people can give some safety advices. Like how to take your camera with you (not a big one), where to put your phone etc. I know I will be many times alone, also after competitions going back to my accommodation which is partly in Lapa, and I want to reduce the chance being robbed. Probably it's not that unsafe as some people like to tell, but better safe than sorry.
  12. Here is the list with all flagbearers known right now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics_Parade_of_Nations The Dutch flagbearer will be announced the day of the opening ceremony.
  13. I'm looking for a place to watch the OC too. Was thinking about the harbour area where the flame will be lit and where there are big screens. But not going there alone. Can you people give some advice about how to take stuff with you around Rio, safety etc?
  14. Seen this picture they use some wind so the flag will be seen in full, like Beijing did for the first time.
