  1. I'm not sure where it will go... maybe nowhere and simply destroyed?
  2. "hard act to follow" is an expression that means the performance, show, event or whatever after this one (London) is going to find it difficult to match!
  3. You've got an extremely hard act to follow, my friend
  4. I thought the cauldrons extinguish was beautiful and in some ways the best part of the closing ceremony. The fact that it had the ability to move to a different angle and stay there makes it sooo unique and wonderful. The final location of it may have been a poor choice, but it is without a doubt the most elegant in design.
  5. Well the rio performance was... interesting, especially the black man in the white suit, he made me fall off my chair in laughter. I'm looking forward to what will be a crazy games in both atmosphere and organisation! Bring on Rio!
  6. Maybe the logo will be incorporated into the cauldron
  7. God I forgot about Sochi! Haha, I think they're doing a tower from the designs of their stadium, but I still think rip will go for a tower
  8. Thanks for letting me know, I didn't realise I was coming off that way. Caught up in the moment of the final stages of these amazing games!
  9. These are my home games and nothing will be able to match them... :'(
  10. Obviously it is impossible to predict whether Rio is going to do better or not, however you have an idea whether they are capable of doing it and in my opinion they're not. The experience I had at the London Olympics was better than my experience in Sydney's and we all know how difficult Sydney is to top.
  11. If you see it that way then I apologise, however this is my opinion and I just can't see a South American country matching the best games I have experienced. I always thought Sydney's would be unbeatable, but London has done so and only a capital of that stature would be able to do so.
  12. No my concern is that they shouldn't be boring and copy the format of numerous others and that they should take inspiration from the difference in London's logo NOT that they should copy London's... Jesus Christ
  13. I hate both their logos (bid and current). They have done what Barcelona, Sydney, Athens, Beijing and countless others did for a logo: Picture Title Olympic rings They should have taken inspiration from London's dynamic logo, which without a doubt is not only the most individual and innovative of them all but also one of the best due to its versatility. Rio unfortunately haven't done this, but have gone backwards...
  14. I doubt it, I will be very surprised if they have a movable cauldron. They'll go for a tower with swirls
  15. They have already gone with the copy cat like logo. So I bet the cauldron will be something similar to Sydney, Barcelona or Athens. You can tell a lot from a logo!
  16. I guarantee rio will be a copy cat and go with a tower
  17. True... but you agree that Athens was a disappointment compared to Sydney?
  18. Besides I don't know why he's such a fan of Athens, it wasn't a brilliant Olympics...
  19. I'm afraid not, though I have been twice already, its fantastic. I bet you wish you could have gone! Aaah the wit of an American... it's too much to handle!
