Amazing show, great music!
Those of you who are British, you should really be proud!

Can anyone explain me who were those three athletes who were walking under the Olimpic Flag?
International... what? Where are they from?

^ I believe one is a refugee that doesn't have a citizenship in another country and the other two where from the former Netherlands Antilles, which ceased to officially exist in 2010. So they are competing as independents.

It is of course Sir Steve Redgrave. Just being in the same city as this is making it all so moving.

Wow! The lighting of the cauldron/flame was beautiful and really unusual. So glad it was younger up and coming athletes that got to light it.

From all the opening ceremonies that I can remember among OG and Football World Cups, this one was my favorite

Go Argentina!

Watching it now, and all I can do is...

Is there anywhere I can download the instrumental music playing during the whole thing with the Industrial Revolution, and Kenneth Branagh smiling and then the rings appearing in the sky and everything?
