What did you think of the opening ceremony at the Olympic Games? Did you go? Are you watching the games? We would love to know what you think of them.
The Olympics are a great way for strong and courageous athletes to show their talent off to the world and even earn prizes and gain world records.
Though fake, the Queen, Queen Elizabeth jumped from a helicopter in the opening ceremony. For some reason she was impersonated by a man. Was there not a woman who looks like the Queen prepared to jump out of a plane? Mr. Bean (Johnny English) was playing the one note over and over again, then the music stopped and he filled in by playing a solo on the piano.
We found out when we skyped Marc this morning that normal people were chosen to perform in the opening ceremony. Marc was of them. He is a friend of Mrs Caldwell’s and he took our flat mascot with him to the Olympic stadium.
All of the pre-dancers had a chance to audition and more than half made it into the dance sessions. It took more than a year to learn the steps with over 100 sessions taking around 45 minutes each to complete, but well worth it because the moves were almost automatic to the dancers.
So far some of the athletes have even beaten their PB (personal best ) by more than 2 seconds. The weights from weightlifting were very heavy and around 100kg. Some weightlifters could only carry for around half of the expected time. Though some failing but still chugging away this year’s olympics will be a very close one.
