As typical of closing ceremonies, they're showing a review of all the 16 days of competition before the start of the show

PS: Had to use Hola again because they're blocking it again to Latin America -.-

It dont was a problem to me.

Broadcast is normal here. Endless review of the games.

Yeah, they will start with the ceremony at 13:00 (Brasília time)

Overall a very good organization. Too bad half of the world didn't even knew this was going on (as usual for most regional games)

And its going to begin!


2 minutes for the start


Circus tents?


You know the organization spelt nepotism when the wife of Aliyev was the president of the organizing comittee :lol:


Oh, a nice performance of the national anthem (which sadly the opening didn't had)

Thanks! Although the latino commentarists can be too loud and annoying sometimes (they ruined the carpet segment for me when i watched their stream for example)


The way they put the cauldron at that pedestal is so London 2012. Also a mix of azeri music with modern instruments

DJ music for the entrance of athletes So far the closing ceremony has had a more modest feel compared to the solemn opening but without being excesively simple


Someone knows what is the meaning of these abstract shapes in the midle of stadium?

Its called Buta. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buta_(ornament)

Buta ornament famed in Eastern countries in a broad territory is a typical detail of Azerbaijani national ornament.[10] Buta motif is often used by Azerbaijani master. There are a lot of types of buta and some of them have their own symbolic meaning.[11] Today, this ornament is widely used in Azerbaijan: on carpets, textiles and decoration of buildings. Buta is considered the symbol of Azerbaijan.

I wonder if Russia would had still been on the top of the medal tally if all the other countries sent their most important athletes instead of the class B ones.

If in these Games were not records and high marks recorded as happened in the Olympics an Pan Am which, also have sport stars on their editions (here no stars were present) Can be they considered as a succesfull Games? Or is it "only" a good way to start?

(OMG Can't believe it, Claro Sports streaming includes spots breaks)
