The athletes were finish entering the stadium in Tokyo 2020 hahaha

I think everyone decided to stay in Rio for the closing party. That's good!

No Lochte and friends.

Rain doesn't show up on TV cameras unless it's really heavy.

 

It's pouring down in Rio!

Camera manages to masquerade rain very well! But you can tell it is raining by seeing the water hit the ponchos on the athletes smart enough to wear them.

Tokyo's handover will include an earthquake, a tsunami, and a reactor meltdown. :o:P

Okay. We had the Girl from Ipanema in the opening, Carmen Miranda in the close. I'm now only hoping they manage to fit Mas que Nada in before the end and I'll feel complete.

I'm glad the BBC has provided a "no commentary" option. On my second screen I'm seeing subtitles for a huge amount of commentary, but what I'm hearing is just lots of Brazilian music.

the parade is taking so long. 

Yea it normally takes long, even in the closing ceremony. You try hurdling thousands of athletes into a stadium all at once.

Not sure why the forum feels the need to give a full notification if a post of mine gets quoted. 

At least it only notifies you !

This is getting boring. I think I'll rip my clothes off in protest like those Mongolian coaches.
