The opening ceremony was very good indeed. I liked the representations of the different sports with people running, cycling, rowing, diving, pole-vaulting etc. up and down the obelisco. It was also refreshing the way all the athletes came in a mixed group rather than the formal marches behind flags. It was also the first time in history that the opening ceremony was held in a city centre rather than a stadium.
