Here are some of the amazing scenes:

The flying Olympic rings — The first time we saw Olympics rings that fly. They seems like made up by thousands of stars… carrying by the angels.

Taiji performance by thousands — they have been practicing for year for the taiji performance. It is amazing that they changed different shapes yet the group is still neat and tidy.

By the way, the on floor electronic display is amazing! Who knows what is it?

Chinese Superman — Li Ning carries the Olympic torch and lifted to the air and walk on the wall like a superman to light up the Olympic flame.

The Olympic flame — a very special, unique shape of Olympic flame. It looks like a scroll end, twisted and Olympic torch alike.

  3. I shared the same feeling with Liew for the amazing scenes during the opening ceremony of Olympics 2008 @ Beijing, China. The opening ceremony was a historical event, with combination of China inventions, innovative ideas, technology, united citizens etc. The way they presented China and Chinese to the world was indeed marvelous, especially their culture, arts, and unity.

  4. I watched this on NBC. For those of you who are wondering, the scroll in the middle was made by LCD projectors. The sreen that the flame is on is the largest lcd projectionn in history! Also, if you were there you missed fireworks in the shape of footsteps “walking” from the center of Beijing to the stadium at one point, to signify how far they’ve come. I am proud. This shows to everyone that even the most war torn and challenged country can work together. This time it was just China working to get attention (amazing!). Imagine what we, as a united people, could accomplish together! We have what we need to do anything we want to do. The only thing we need is unity.
    Wow. Why can’t I sound like this in school?
    P.S. I liked the drums at the beginning!

  6. The ceremony was spectacular. Five thousand years of Chinese history flowed on a huge LED scroll that unrolled to chapters of China’s 5,000-year civilization.
