During the athletes' parade, the flag-bearers of each country were accompanied by a volunteer carrying a petal. These two hundred five petals culminated in creating the cauldron for the Olympic flame, representing the contribution of each participating country. See more »
I almost fell asleep watching this ceremony, and I loved every single opening before this one. I guess the Chinese set a new standard with Beijing's opening ceremony that will not be easy to surpass. London's ceremony lacked intensity and was mostly focused on promoting social issues and in being 'cool'. I don't even want to comment about all the fuzz about the queen, because it was really lame and the rest of the world don't give a damn about her. It's amazing the amount of money they spent on this show and how little they accomplished. That's it, if you are looking for a great Olympic ceremony, look the one from Beijing or maybe Athens, because this one is pretty boring.
