Reports on Twitter Nigeria have left their ceremony outfits in.....Nigeria.

 

Well, that's about par for the course for Nigeria these Olympics. Look at the nightmare they had even getting to Brazil. But they still had the best football match of the Games so far.

Only criticism I have so far is how stark the staging looks. Granted, I've been spoiled by past Games, especially London, in terms of staging, which may explain it. That and the stadium needs to be converted back to a football pitch posthaste.

Ceremony outfits even in gamesbids members... Nice idea. 

So I'm guessing the Nigerian Olympic Committee is responsible for the uniforms and doesn't issue them to the athletes until the Opening ceremony? Is this how the rest of the countries do it with their ceremony outfits or do they give them to the athletes way before they even leave for the host city?

Some issues at the entrance of Maracanã. It seems a gate has been closed and people can't  come in.

 

 

That will make for angry scenes if the audience cant get in

In this case untrue. Many foreign visitors are also stucked in long security lines.
