Nice touch, the Eiffel Tower with a prosthetic blade.

But I'm asking myself whether Paris 2024will include such street action segments into their ceremonies.

That is what they are announcing. We have 3 years left and most of the original plans are changed most of the times. Street celebration would mean a work 3times bigger than a "stadium" ceremony.

I'm not sure whether that is a good idea. For the two handover segments, the street segments were the least convincing parts for me. It looked like a community event, but not like an Olympic ceremony.

Absolutely amazing !!
Wow

I agree. Did anyone notice a blade as one of the legs for the Eiffel Tower. Tony estanguet reminding me of that Mariah Carey video where she in Paris.

And the flame just turned purple.

Good and shorter segment for the handover. 

I wonder if since now on handover ceremonies will be direct from the host city or they'll return to the stadium as usual. 

That could start a trend.

Yes, the flame looks really purple now. I'm curious whether future Olympic/Paralympic hosts will follow Tokyo's concept of having a hydrogen flame. It allows to colour the flame in different colours. Hopefully no host will ever get the idea of colouring the flame in its national colours. ;)
