Rio 2016 Olympic Cauldron


Recommended Posts

I have the feeling they keep a surprise. They can not be so predictable of having the cauldron in that place... (Strongly resembling Vancouver)

May be there is a second cauldron in the Olympic park or sth like this...

Really, I don't like the idea of having the cauldron in such place :unsure::mellow::(

I've always looked at this spot for a possible cauldron

That's so Vancouver and almost like Sochi. I imagine Rio 2016 might be a little more imaginative with such a vast city, maybe 10x larger than Vancouver; and 20x larger than Sochi. It has to be near downtown so that there's something that visitors can gravitate towards in the old downtown. Maybe in front of Rio's City Hall or Cathedral?

That's why I posted that other article on the Vatican. It was a lead-in to this other church-related news!! LOL!!!

Nopes, it'll be located on the opposite side. Between the church and the bay.

The cauldron will be 7 meters high so no need that ugly fences I think.

And if will lit at the same time, this means that will not be moved but we will have two cauldrons

Hmmmm.

Google Earth's timeline shows that there's an area at the bottom end of the Av. Pres. Vargas, between the Candelaria church and the sea, which has been used as something like a contractors' yard ever since the old elevated highway was demolished. It's a blot on an area which has otherwise been much improved, so with luck it will be transformed by August ...

So it still looks like a contractors' yard, but at least there appear to be people working in it, and there's well over two months until the opening ceremony. No pressure.

I think that in some moment of the ceremony it will be shown a torchbearer arriving at Av. Pres. Vargas and passing the flame to two torchbearer. One will run to the right towards the Maracana and the other will go the left towards the cauldron in the square, arriving both at the same time to light them.

So I guess, here are the 2 prototypes of the cauldron. One which will appear from the floor of Maracana; and then the other one built down by the Candelaria Church. So they must be plotting the distance and the scale of the caldera here.

IT'S NOT a caldron prototype. It's pieces of scenario from paralympic OC. Do you really think that they would reveal the caldron prototype? They're working with secrets. Until now we know more from paralympic ceremonies than olympic's one.

I was going to say the same thing. Plus god forbid that is the cauldron because I can already see pineapple jokes/comparisons.

Also, about being lit at the same time, I guess it will be something similar to Baku 2015,since there were two Solar Eclipse-shaped cauldron, one at the stadium and another one at Baku's bay.
