    That Sacred Flame was lit by the rays of the sun by a Greek model wearing pretend Iron Age costume on Mount Olympus ffs. And it has passed through every nation, just as it has been since Hitler's Olympics in 1936. How anyone can denigrate its holy symbolism is frankly beyond me

    The fact that I still enjoyed this despite TERRIBLE commentary from the Sky Sport NZ pair suggests that was a pretty ****ing good ceremony. Kudos.

    It really pissed me off when the commentators started shouting excitedly as the NZ team came into view. I was really hoping to hear a cheer from the crowd when our team was announced, but the ****s drowned it out completely. FFS.

    Oh why did you give the tosspot a piano?

    And why did you have to finish the ceremony the way every bloody cheesefest since 1969 has finished? Too...much....cliche...to process...

    Other than that thought it was blinding.

    Confirmed, a bit disappointing really. Overall though the ceremony was good, some parts were a bit meh. Gaze commentating was quite annoying he only made comments about Basketball and I can't believe we didn't get to see Malta, the camera was on the Boomers at the time.

    The Independent Olympic Athletes team was interesting. I've never seen that before.

    Korean archer, legally blind in 1 eye, sets WR

    South Korea's Im Dong-Hyun, who is legally blind in one eye, broke his own archery world record Friday during the men's ranking round at the London Olympics.

    Im's score of 699 broke the previous 72-arrow record of 696 he set in May of this year.

    The 26-year-old archer has bad vision in his right eye and is legally blind in his left. He said he wouldn't get too excited about the result because it's only the first round.

    The Koreans broke their 216-arrow world record with 2,087 points as Kim Bubmin and Oh Jin-Hyek placed second and third -- Kim also broke Im's old individual mark.

    France, China, the United States and Japan finished second through fifth in that order. Canada's Crispin Duenas placed eighth in the individual ranking round.

    The last country other than South Korea to win a gold medal in the men's team competition was the U.S. in 1996.
    Wow!
