Grand Opening in Rio
The last night Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio was fantastic.
We watched it on the NBC TV and here are just a few snapshots from the ceremony live at the Maracana.
Just a few highlights of the night I remembered the most:
- Team USA appearance at the ceremony was perfecto. Really loved that the flag bearer Michael Phelps was a part of a front line of athletes. It was powerful, emotional and team spitited! Way to go! Go Team USA!
- Team Russia was a good show under the circumstances of the doping scandals and that even participation of the team in the Olympics was under a big question.
- As usual loved the historical overview of Brazil with all the computer graphics and people choreographed scenes on the stadium.
- The Alberto Santos Dumont plane flight was touching and impressive. Not to stir the controversy on who was the first – Santos Dumont or the Wright Brothers.
