Closing Ceremonies Details


Recommended Posts

I understand your excitement Mr.X :lol: no one would want such a wonderful event to end.

Anyway, not much details are known and wonder how are they going to do it with that huge flame on the middle. The only details known are about the russian performers for the Sochi 2014 handover (check the 2014 WOG forums for more info)

Why do you think they throw in all those so-called 'older' (Greek, First Nations) societies' leitmotif icons? So they could get back to basic and pre-Victorian imagery!!

Hence the Eleusian Mysteries have been brought back to life thanks to the Olympics....

Which all goes to prove that the games are in fact a subtle attempt by sex-crazed pagans to seduce 'the youth of the world' into villages every 2 years for intermingling and the creation of a new super race :blink::P

I hope "wolfman" will appear again!

It would be very rude of him not appearing again to say Farewell after welcoming the world in such great fashion! :P

I'm wondering, will there be another cauldron lighting inside since the internal cauldron can't stay on all the time? Maybe Catriona will get her chance this time to light her segment. Or will they just work with the outdoor cauldron and extinguish that one?

I think they may FINALLY add a skating rink for the Closing because, except for Salt Lake and Torino, it has always been a Winter Closing tradition, and especially this is back to an indoor venue, to feature the figure skating gold medallists--unless they already have a separate skating exhibition event by itself at the Pacific Arena, Dome, etc.,

Hey baron...not sure (haven't got access to my vids at the mo) but I recall Albertville only had a solid surface which was for inline skating, whilst Lillehammer was down on the apron of the ski jump arena so they had the performers on mini skis. Feel free to correct dude...

They will most probably stick to the stage from the opening ceremony -- remember, they spent a lot less on the ceremonies than Beijing did. And I think the opening ceremony stage looked just fine. I was stunned by that snow effect on the ground. It looked actually pretty natural.

Regarding the pressurised air in the flagpoles: Either they didn't choose maximum power or those vents in the flagpoles really are not the strongest. See for yourself (at 2:22 and 3:59):

The vents seem to have difficulties to keep the flag really flying -- even without the flag being entangled in a rope.
