[LIVE] (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony✧゚・: *ヽ(◕ヮ◕ヽ)

Welcome to the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics viewing post!

Posting an hour early cause I might fall asleep...shhhh!

Opening & closing ceremonies will take place in Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium. Built at approximately $58M, the open-roof stadium (get ready to freeze) was built specifically for both opening and closing ceremonies, but will not host any athletic events. The stadium seats 35,000 people, who may experience the coldest Olympics to date. A recent concert at the PyeongChang Olympic stadium saw 6 reported cases of hypothermia.

According to telegraph, the opening ceremony should follow roughly the same schedule as the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

[*click* for schedule]

1. Entry by the head of state
2. Playing of the national anthem
3. Parade of participants
4. Symbolic release of doves
5. Head of state declares the Games open
6. Raising of the Olympic flag
7. The Olympic oath is taken by an athlete, official, and coach
8. The Olympic flame and the torch relay
9. The artistic program

Did you know?: The symbolic release of pigeons has recently been adapted after a number of doves were unfortunately accidentally incinerated when the Olympic torch was lit in the opening ceremony of the 1988 Seoul games. May they RIP.

And also did you know?: The history of free condoms for Olympic athletes dates back to 1988 Seoul Olympics. About 8,500 condoms were given out then, followed by 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, when the number of free condoms jumped 10-fold to about 90,000.

Well.... now you know ︵‿︵(´ ͡༎ຶ ͜ʖ ͡༎ຶ `)︵‿︵

predicted windchill temperatures of -25C D: But they have heated seats in the stadium at least!
bethmai 9th-Feb-2018 11:02 am (UTC)
saw that they have heated pods you can go and warm up in, little mini saunas

The fact that this starts in half an hour tells me I'm up way too late. I'll be watching on the NBC tomorrow night but I hope everyone here has fun watching live! I've been watching so much curling already these Games, it's too bad the US is flopping but I'm getting invested in all the mixed doubles pairs.

BBC hinted at "an old favorite" to another caster and she immediately said PSY. So I guess we'll find out
stani_mnt 9th-Feb-2018 10:51 am (UTC)
It's noon here and I was planning to do some studying until starts but Eurosport already started their stream so no studying for me.
