Nacho Olympic beat me to it on the Japan 2019 Rugby World Cup Opening Ceremony. Was gonna put it up yesterday. Oh well...

Putting up the 2019 Africa Games Closing Ceremony from Rabat, Morocco at Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium that ended the 40-year absence from hosting this. Same MCs from the Opening are back. Entertainment is a mixture of Moroccan, Arabic and French recording artists like Aminux, Mina Tiwirit, Nouamane Belaiachi, Victoire Biaku, Josey, Nataly Andria and Franco and dance troupe Pawad Nawaz (sp?). Unlike in the Olympic version, the athletes, coaches, trainers, etc all don't march as one multicolored mass in entrance. But enter as part of their national teams kinda just like they did until John Wing's Melbourne suggestion back in 1956. Also the African Union anthem is played along with the Olympic Hymn and the Moroccan national anthem. The Atlas Lion mascot is all over this as soon as he arrives before the parade. The stadium is not filled to capacity...and some of the audio in not in sync  

 

And we can't forget the 2019 Indian Ocean Island Games Closing Ceremonies from Port-Louis, Mauritius at the Anjalay Coopen Stadium taken from MBC TV. Just like with the opening, it was wet and cloudy and rainy. No English commentary? Then again, almost all the participating islands in this region are French-speaking, although some like Seychelles and Mauritius are both English and French and are Commonwealth nations. Built a grand stage for the singing entertainment inside the stadium this time. Listen closely and you'll hear the Rocky theme Gonna Fly Now from the marching band. Also interesting here, the JIOI Mauritius mascot plays a prominent role here too before leaving the stage:

OMG...Qatar is such a dump (spent time there last year) and that ceremony of video cliches and men giving speeches for half an hour was dire. Money can't buy taste or class.

Now with empty stadiums for example, less than 3000 people for the womens 100m final. Thanks IAAF (and soon FIFA).

This championship is a real scandal... sport managers have to duscius seruiosly this event and even, if it is necesary, to cancel some street race events.... 

We'll have a disaster if it is not stopped on time... I hope nothing of this to happen, but we are very close to do....

I've been looking for something like this for a long time: An hour long commemorative tape by Buffalo's Channel 4 of highlights of the 1993 World University Games in Buffalo. There are some 15 minutes of terrific highlights of the Opening Ceremony at Rich Stadium on this as well as some footage of the Closing Ceremony as well. Enjoy!

I also found the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The opening segment of the Closing Ceremony of Rio 2016 Olympics.

An adaptated version of the traditional Brazilian song "Baiana"

I post this video just to recommend you this YouTube channel - Cusome TV -  which is uploading many ceremonies only with the "Artistic segment" and some short segment videos.
