    LA 2028 Ceremonies

    so far the tread has been discussing weather the OC for 2028 would be about america (with all the founding father, colonial attires Etc) or LA as the city it self (Hollywood in patricular) i would a suggest a marriage of both american with an LA perspective. much like London, we start with a redwood forest with the early tribal settlers maybe Spanish church to represent the mexico-Spain colonization. then, it all get rip apart to represent the gold rush where many american journeyed to find gold and/ minerals. add in a bit of westworld to it with cowboys and such. the US president can arrive like the queen with a superman or captain america sequence . they can also add a wizard of oz scene where you can do a 'tribute' to the great depression. it starts in B&W where a girl sing' over the rainbow and then goes to color then they are transported to the emerald city (LA). what i think they should also add is a tribute to the LGBT community. basically, i just want rupaul to open the parade of nations with ' category is: Olympic athlete realness ' and also drag queens as sign bearers.

    Los Angeles 2028

    off topic to the current discussion: i know it's still way to far to speculate but i think, for the opening ceremony, drag queens might be involved. the wizard of oz might be the over arching theme. with LA as the 'emerald city' youtube and the internet might be involve. also, the ceremonies might be super gay which will no be liked by the African and Arab countries and for the handover, the opening scene from lala land

    Tokyo 2020 Ceremonies

    i think the focus of fukushima will dampen the WW2 sentiments. it will still focus on nukes but it's a natural disaster rather than man made or an act of war. less focus on stereotypical japan would mean that there will be no ninjas or geisha but i also think less focus on amine culture. my only wish is world order is involve. may be even ushering in the the athletes

    you forgot the rings from london
  9. Los Angeles throws its hat in the ring for 2024 Olympics By Jill Painter, Staff Writer POSTED: 05/14/13, 1:54 PM PDT | UPDATED: ON 05/31/2013 Los Angeles wants the 2024 Olympic Games. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa informed the United States Olympic Committee on Thursday that the city is interested in hosting the Olympics for a third time. L.A. previously hosted the 1932 and 1984 games. Last month, the USOC sent a letter to at least 30 cities gauging their interest in hosting the games. Los Angeles is believed to be the first city to throw its hat in the ring. David Simon, president of the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games, is confident Los Angeles has what it takes to host again. "You can certainly talk about a history and tradition when it comes to the Olympics that's really unmatched by few other cities in the world, and certainly not in the U.S. because we've hosted it twice," Simon said. "We have a wealth of existing facilities and not just facilities that existed when we hosted in '84. For the most part, there are existing facilities, but back then we didn't have Staples Center, Home Depot, Honda Center, and now you've got the Galen Center. We really have a lot of new buildings and there's even talk of some more in the coming years." Such as a new NFL stadium. AEG has submitted downtown plans for a stadium, and Ed Roski's Majestic Realty is ready to build one in the City of Industry. Last year, the Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution in support of a 2024 bid. About six weeks ago, Villaraigosa sent a letter to the USOC, co-signed by AEG president Tim Leiweke, actor Tom Hanks, Dodgers part owner Magic Johnson, former Olympic swimmer Janet Evans and others, expressing interest in the bid. This week's letter from Villaraigosa was meant to confirm the city's "enthusiastic interest" in bidding for 2024. "The exciting part for us is that we found out some weeks ago that the USOC is embarking on a process to pick a city," Simon said. "They passed on 2020 and we weren't sure, until recently, if they were interested in 2024." Woodland Hills resident Beverly Shaffer, 84, was a big part of the 1984 Olympics and has fond memories of the event. She has a clock in her living room that has the 1984 Olympic Games logo and two goblets on her dining room table. And she is quick to point out how lucrative the Olympics were for the city - to the tune of more than $200 million as the first Summer Games to turn a profit. "We have some nice facilities because of it," said Shaffer, a track official and volunteer for the 1984 Olympics. "Having so much money come in was wonderful, and there were a lot of organizations that benefited from some of the profits. A lot went to youth organizations. We didn't have any problems with traffic or any other real problems. I thought it was a favorable thing for Los Angeles." Shaffer's husband, Stuart, was also a volunteer and track official for the games. Beverly Shaffer was on committees that met before the games, including the torch committee in which they planned its route. She also volunteered in the media center. "Everyone was hospitable," Shaffer said. "It was a wonderful experience for all - volunteers, people who lived here and incoming visitors." In 1984, the Olympics kicked off in memorable fashion when Rafer Johnson lit the torch in the opening ceremonies and Carl Lewis won four gold medals. As for what's next, Los Angeles must wait. After all, the host city won't be selected until 2017. "They told us it will be less elaborate and less expensive in terms of times and resources than the last couple of bid cycles," Simon said. "They haven't spelled out what that means, but they made a decision to do it in a new way. Evidently, they're prepared to take up to two years. This is the first step in what is undoubtedly a long journey." http://www.dailynews.com/20130307/los-angeles-throws-its-hat-in-the-ring-for-2024-olympics

    heritage flame lighting ceremony

    it looks a bit of a mess. i was expecting a bit more 'carry on matron' than low rent childrens show. should have focus more on the hefestos story and then mix in the stoke madeville story. but this is just the 2nd heritage flame lighting ceremony. maybe in two years we iron things out and make a straight forward (but not as serious ceremony like greece) ceremony. missing the armillary sphere. would have been nice if a brazillian paralympic athlete spin the circle with his/her effort.

    heritage flame lighting ceremony

    http://www.mix96.co.uk/news/local/2078338/tanni-grey-thompson-to-light-paralympic-flame-in-aylesbury/ While an audience of 1,400 ticket holders will witness the Heritage Flame being lit at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, thousands more will be celebrating in a carnival atmosphere in Aylesbury's Vale Park to give the Flame a fitting send-off as it is transferred to Rio. Baroness Grey-Thompson urged the public to flock to the event in Vale Park, particularly as a way of showing their support for the GB team who are competing in Rio. The Baroness, 47, is a former British wheelchair racer, now a member of the house of Lords, speaker and television commentator. She was born with spina bifida and joined the British Wheelchair Racing Squad aged 17, competing in the Paralympic Games over 16 years and winning eleven gold, four silver and one bronze medals - breaking 30 world records during her glittering career. Penny Mordaunt, Minister of State for Disabled People, Work and Health, said: Tim Reddish OBE, Chairman of the British Paralympic Association, said: Paralympic Flame Lighting Ceremony 2012 Martin McElhatton, member of the Bucks Legacy Board which has organised the Heritage Flame Lighting Ceremony, said: During the daytime on 2 September, Stoke Mandeville Stadium will also host the ParalympicsGB Carnival, the first of six family-friendly activity days around the UK organised by the British Paralympic Association and supported by the Spirit of 2012. This free fun day at the Stadium offers a chance for anyone and everyone to meet Paralympians, try out Paralympic sports, talk to those involved in running them and discover what is available in their own area.

    Tokyo 2020 Ceremonies

    with the trend of set pieces in the stands (glastonbury tor in london and the favelas in rio) i think there would be a massive mt. fuji at the end of the stadium.

    Tokyo 2020 Handover

    i still love the bus but yes london's handover was little to no partnership with the beijing counterpart. you can even see that they used thier own crew to film it. rio had the whole stage to themselves. london had a spot on the front end.

    Tokyo 2020 Ceremonies

    i predicted that rio would have a favela scene. so i thinkg tokyo's OC will have a shibuya crossing section with references to amine and otaku culture. i don't think it will be traditional. may be for the protocol like the flag raising ceremony. unless they do a pandemonium, i think it should focus more on technology and media. here are list of characters (and shows) we should watch out on 2020 detective conan, lupin the 3rd, naruto, blech,ghost fighter, dragonball z, full metal alchmist, samirai x (which may appear on an historical section), slum dunk, hatsune miku i would also like band like baby metal and world order
