Didn't even know the Games was opened. He should have said it in English as well. That's another misstep by the organiser. 

No he shouldn't. The opening announcement is only in the home language.

Last time children sang the Olympic Anthem was in Nagano, though they sang it in Japanese.

H and M you mean?

Children signing. Horrible. Doesn't Brazil have a decent Opera singer to belt it out properly?

And Rols, don't insult the fine music of New Orleans by comparing the Olympic Hymn to a dirge.

Pros: Not a lazy instrumental version again
Cons: Marring vocal performance of the anthem, tbh.
