I just have found this at the ORF website (http://sport.orf.at/stories/2099257/2099256/). I think it's nothing special.

Nice one... they probably realised some tests a few days ago !

The questions, now is... will they keep the third cauldron after the Games ????

(by the way, if we have some members from Singapour, what did they do with the cauldron of the 2010 summer YOG ?)

Bye everyone... will try to continue to share some pics in the few days, and some of mine from my few days here in Innsbruck... but I should admit I have lost my faith a little bit, after seeing how IOC & Innsbruck threat their outside of the venue audience !!!!

What they did to the YOG was almost like trying to commit suicide .... :(

Flames deleted for reasons of economy

http://sport.orf.at/stories/2099474/2099473/

The artistic culmination of the 15-year-old Tyrolean singer EMA sat with her Olympic song "This is our time". The celebration was concluded with a fireworks display. The three fire shells at Bergisel were deleted to save energy by the way, shortly after the ceremony again. Instead, the fire burns up to 22 January on a smaller flame in the Maria-Theresia-Straße.

this could be the worst olympic ceremony of all time. B)
