Silver (4/16)



  1. Well, that's nothing new. Everybody and their mothers know Rio has a lot of work to do.
  2. Like London had a hard act to follow after Beijing. The true is that every Olympic is different. China laid its own mark when they hosted, London laid its own mark now and Rio will do the same in 2016. Rio will have its ups and downs but in the end, I'm sure it's gonna be fun and enjoyable party. I don't think the brazilian organizers have to worry about London too much, they have to make their own Olympics now and hopefully people in the world will enjoy it, if not, I'm sure brazilians will love the experience either way. This is gonna be a south american Olympics, like it or not.
  3. No rock'n'rol during the ceremonies in Rio, please! I had enough of it last night lol Just samba and bossa nova! By the way, I hope the female performers in the ceremonies won't be too covered, like in the handover. I mean, c'mon, give me some half-naked people! This is Rio for god's sake, I want to see beauty everywhere! lol
  4. Love it! I want a full samba party in the OC and CC, not light samba like the handover ceremony, I want true samba! Arlindo Cruz, Jorge Arag√£o, Alcione, Beth Carvalho, Zeca Pagodinho, Mangueira dancers and drummers. I want it ALL! lol
  5. They could use corcovado while lightining the caldron (maybe the flame will came from there), but not exactly put the caldron up there. I don't know, either way, the discussion about the 2016 caldron shpuld be even more interesting than the one we had about london's.
  6. I don't think so. I just saw the infield on brazilian tv. It's covered with an stylized union flag (or something like that). The weather looks cloudy, maybe we'll have light rain during the ceremony.
  7. He's probably talking about brazilian's forests. I have a feeling the CC will surpasse the OC by far!
  8. I believe if there's one thing people should not to be worried about is the Maracana Stadium. It's schedule to receive the world cup final in 2014, that's 2 years before the opening ceremonies. It was also reported last week the stadium will be closed from april to august 2016 for preparations for the opening ceremony, that should be enough time to make any necessary arrangements for the OC. About the lack of an athletic track in the stadium and worries about lack of space for the atletes, I think we should take a look at how it was done in 2007 during the Panam OC. If they did it back then, there's no reason they won't do it again in 2016.
  9. Talking about the olympic flag, here's an epic entrance in Barcelona:
  10. They will probably be standing in the center of the field, like always.
  11. It looks like it's gonna be dance-heavy. I'm glad they're going to showcase the national culture instead of focusing just on Rio and samba. Should be fun.
  12. Volleyball will be played in Maracananzinho (the indoor stadium close to Maracana). Beach volleyball will be played in Copacabana.
