The Opening Ceremony of the XXII Olympic Games
The opening ceremony of the XXII Olympic Games was held at the Olympic stadium “Fisht”. It began at 20:14 Moscow time. The time was chosen symbolically. It was so brilliant! We watched the parade of nations, listened to the athletes’ oath. We saw some ballet, heard some opera, learned some things about the Russian alphabet and took a tour of Russian history that included references to Peter the Great, the cosmonauts, “War and Peace”. We saw three giant animal mascots of the Games, skating around the arena: a polar bear, a hare and a leopard. They were 8 meter tall. We heard the I.O.C. president, Thomas Bach, who made a speech in which he emphasized that the Olympics were about tolerance, not discrimination. The most thrilling moment of the ceremony was the lighting of the Olympic caldron by the figure skater Irina Rodnina and the hockey player Vladislav Tretiak. President Putin declared the Games open.
“Most of all I liked the fireworks at the end of the ceremony and the anthem performed by Anna Netrebko.” /Emil Asadov, 8v/
“I’m proud that the Olympic Games are held in our country.” /Pavel Zagrebin, 8v/
“The ceremony was grand! I was impressed with the music, special effects and computer graphic.” /Aleksei Ponomaryov, 8v/
