Well there were doubters, including me, I personally loved the Sydney Opening Ceremony in 2000, but I was floored. Bright, bold, rock and roll and touching- acknowledging those who have died in WW1 and 2 was a brave move, celebrating our free health care, so often we take it for granted, James Bond and our Queen-that was a shocker! The torch itself was fantastic, made up of copper petals representing all 204 countries and set alight by the next generation.
