That was my website - The Pan American Games Fan Pages!  Thanks for remembering it. I'm glad somebody appreciated my work.  I'm sad, too, that it was lost - I was very proud of it.  I loved watching t

The French have this proclivity to do strange things with their ceremonies.  And they like to do outdoor/"theatre in the streets."   1.  weird Albertville 1992 ceremonies 2. Med Games 1993 -

Here is NBC's coverage of Cathy Freeman's Race. One of the Great Moments In Olympic History  

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:

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.

Okay but why does Bach always has to send a prerecorded message for every single sport event that exists in this world? I thought his vanity/megalomania would be satisfied at this point by always being introduced as that olympic champion in fencing, 1976 in ceremonies. Getting annoying at this point tbh.

Hey, I found this thread interesting and cool. I've found the full ceremony of the Commonwealth Youth Games from 2017 and a clip of the Australian anthem from the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games last year. Enjoy!

Thank you very much for your contributions to this forum, HeisPongsatorn.

I have been trying to locate the full opening ceremony of Chiang Mai 1995. Sadly, all there isn in Youtube is the full Bird Tongchai performance which I posted on this thread some days ago. I managed to obtain the RAW opening ceremony of Bangkok 1998 (no TV comments) which is uploaded in my account, but i've always wished to see the show Chiang Mai put before the Asiad, specially now that we're nearing yet another edition of the SEA Games in the Philippines. Any help would be really appreciated. :)
