  1. Olympic cauldron design to use the sun as motif KYODO NEWS - Jul 24, 2019 - 12:03 Organizers are planning to design the Olympic cauldron for next year's Tokyo Games as a sphere using the sun as a motif, sources close to them said Wednesday. Proposals have also been made to use hydrogen as fuel to keep the fire in the cauldron burning, to promote Japan's next-generation energy initiatives to the world, they said. Current plans are to have the spherical cauldron, which will be lit at the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Par
  2. Ok. Now it's confirmed that it's the actual logo. I red it's based on the current venues and a future vision of the city of Santiago. https://www.latercera.com/el-deportivo/noticia/santiago-2023-presenta-su-colorido-logo/743228/ (in Spanish)
  3. Santiago2023.org is currently active and its showing a particular logo http://www.santiago2023.org/
  4. This makes me so happy. Finally the Panams at home!
  5. And Santiago, CHI. Chilean NOC President, Neven Ilic, declared that Santiago MUST bid again. But I think it all will be decided after the presidential election (next year). When is the deadline to register the bid?
  6. Does anybody cries when the cauldron was extinguished? 'Cause I did and I don't have any problems recognizing it. I think it was one of the most memorable moments of the ceremony. Perfect song, perfect singer, the rain. Just beautiful
  7. Hi there guys. Just came back last night from Rio. Such an incredible experiencie. And for this topic, despite it was insanely crowded, seeing the cauldron and the olympic flame in front of me was such a memorable moment. For me, a simply guy who love sports, this meant so much. It was not a ginormous cauldron, but it was beautiful and inspiring. (and of course I have my picture with the cauldron behind hehehe)
  8. I finally got it! Indeed, I got the one with the Paralympic logo first in front of Copacabana Megastore from a collector from Spain, and few days later in the same place, another spanish collector had the one with the Rio Olympics logo. It was hard to find! Thanks for your help
  9. Ok guys. Finally at the apartment. Watching the ceremony at the live site on Olympic Boulevard was an extraordinary experience. About the ceremony itself, well, nice start, messy with the guys at the "favelas", but what a way to end! Everyone was dancing at the Fan Site when the samba started. It was a simple but beautiful ceremony, very meaningful. Loved the green rings and, I confess, I got emotional with the cauldron lit. A simple but beautiful cauldron. I'm planning to visit the one at Candelaria in the next days.
  10. I'm at this moment at Olympic Boulevard and it's amaaaaazing. Full of people, great music. Such a great way to wait for the OC
  11. I just got my tickets from Cartan. Very fast (10 minutes waiting) and the people there was very nice.
  12. .A brazilian girl next to me said: "this is a once in a lifetime oportunity to experience something like this and is happening in the city where I live. I feel blessed. I don't know if I'm ever going to see something like this". She was veeeeery moved about the olympics and the torch passing right in front of her home.
  13. I couldn't make it guys. Sorry I was celebrating my dad's b'day
  14. I was at Av. Nossa Senhora Da Copacabana (Rio) and saw the torch relay. What an amazing experience. The vibe on the streets was phenomenal, I'm still excited!!!
  15. I'm kinda in the middle. Two blocks from Copacabana, three blocks from Ipanema
  16. Today I went for a walk to Copacabana and finished at Beach Volleyball stadium. I took this pic
  17. I'm at Copacabana zone. Close to posto 6. I reserved the place like a year ago haha
  18. Nice to have your view and hints about Rio! I'm now waiting for my flight to Rio, expecting to arrive there at 2 pm for my first olympics Hope to see some of you there, guys!
  19. And here's where I panic hahahah. A friend of mine told me that for him it tooks 2 hours from Copacabana to Barra
  20. Guys in Rio, I got a question. I've been reading the Metro Rio website and it says that you need to have de Olympic Paying Card PLUS tickets for the day if you wanna use Linha 4. Has someone already use it? I mean, 'cause I have to pick up my tickets from Cartan at Barra (close to Jardim Oceanico station) this thursday and using Metro seems to be the fastest way to go there.
