  1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TZywUmuMBk Pre-ceremony segment for the Sydney 2000 Closing Ceremony.
  2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPU3Oetfxoo The full "Organised Chaos" (lawnmower man) segment of the Sydney 2000 Closing Ceremony. Hope you like it.
  3. Trying to find a video of the Paralympics Closing Ceremony as like the Opening, missed it too although it was on TV
  4. Looking good and should be better than the Olympic Closing Ceremony.
  5. Off topic from the lawnmower man scene (aka Organised Chaos) from the Sydney 2000 OG Closing Ceremony, here's the entire London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony as uploaded by the IPC. Enjoy.
  6. Didn't see it this morning but watched a bit on YouTube and I have to say it's sensational, if not, better than the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
  7. Was wondering about why were there chairs in the set for the Para Games OC. Really looking forward to it tomorrow morning at 5.30AM EST.
  8. Will the chairs be where the athletes will be sitting during the Opening Ceremony tomorrow morning Perth Time?
  9. Awesome. Looking forward to the Paralympic Opening Ceremony but no live coverage here in Oz
  10. Liked both Sydney Ceremonies and the lawnmower man scene at the beginning is always my favourite part!
  11. COMPLETE Sydney 2000 OG Closing Ceremony from start to finish as broadcast by the Seven Network. Makes me proud to be Australian when ever I see this, but the lawnmower scene is cut off, unfortunately.
  12. Summer Netball MMA Cricket (Twenty20 Format) Squash Cue sports Winter Sprint skiing Cross Country Running
  13. My favourite lighting of the cauldron in Olympic history.
  14. My top three moments. 1. Sally Pearson winning the women's 100m hurdles (Thank god for Foxtel iqHD so that I can replay it over and over again) 2. The Opening and Closing Ceremonies- loved them both! 3. Usain Bolt's three-peat winning the 4x100m relay (in WR time), 100m final and 200m final.
  15. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij3sgRG5sPY Despite strict copyright restrictions, the entire Closing Ceremony has been uploaded by the official IOC Olympic Channel, no Eddie McGuire (equiviliant of Bob Costas here in Oz)
  16. Sad to see the flame go out after a wonderful 17 days but a good closing ceremony, but not as good as Sydney. My rate: 8.5/10
  17. Going to be a fantastic show, but Sydney's is always the best. Ceremony starts at 0400 (Perth Time) so will record it like the Opening.
  18. Awesome games! Best games on par with Sydney. Great city, great hosts and great atmosphere. I'd wonder what will Jacques Rogge say in tonight's Closing Ceremony as he promised he'll never use the term "Best Olympic Games Ever" like the late Samaranch (Mr Sydney).
  19. A big show of Brazillian culture and the appearance of Pele lighting the cauldron.
  20. Wow. If this is the case, how will the cauldron be lit?
  21. Getting excited!!! It'll begin at 4am here in Perth and telecast starts at 3.30AM...so going to set my PVR and record and watch it the next day. Can't believe how fast four years have gone,
  22. Most probably it will be a surprise like what happen in Sydney four years ago. My favourite thread on GamesBids.
  23. Still no announcement on the TV rights for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Australia.
