The background music during the parade, remind me a little bit the one from Vancouver !

the have a big videoscreen with a world map where they colored in red each of the country participating, the one after the other....

Africa is still pretty white compared to the rest of the world :angry:

And it's time for Austria.... a triumph !!!! :)

Back to the show... folkloric music & dance !!!

Urban Hip-Hop dancers on the scene...

They added a third "basic" cauldron to the 2 already existing !

And by the way, they also have a extra one at the medal plazza in the city center

Thanks SwissO for your commentary - keep it up - I'm bringing you a bigger audience. There may be a free Premium Membership in this for you :)

It's just a shame that there is no worldwide broadcast of the ceremony... and also that IOC or Innsbruck 2012 is not covering it live as i am doing... their last pics on twitter was 30 minutes ago :angry:

OCOG Innsbruck President & IOC president are entering the stadium for their speech...

yeah...very sad

-first they come with bad logo,

-they run competition for medal design,but again,they not used the winning design,

-then inappropriate mascot

-torch was revealed..but..hurmmm,the one from singapore..

-now the ceremony,such a waste opportunity..they actually can promote their culture n city to the world,
