    Have some goddamn CLASS Australia! The outfits were HEINOUS. The women who had flatted the heel of the ballet slippers to turn them into flats without heel support were tacky.

    I'm all for team pride, but for FFS, the hollering, jumping, running up to the cameras when the Chinese officials were on the sideline shepherding them to stay within the white line. How tacky.

    I agree. We had our fair share of morons with video cameras and cellphones too. "Hey Mom, I'm at the Olympics!" Well dur. I'm watching the Games on SBS because Channel 7 is only covering events with Aussies in them and the commentary is so biased it's unwatchable. Much as I love this country our attitude to sport sucks - arrogant and ungracious in defeat and even worse when we win. Whatever happened to that Olympic idea of "it's not about winning, it's about participating". I actually hope the Aussies get crapped on from a great height in the events they confidently expect to win, eg swimming. It might teach them a bit of humility but if it happens no doubt they will start bleating about drug cheats and unfair referees.

    I didn't watch the entire OC to see the athletes march..but I do remember the athletes carrying camcorders as far back as the Olympic Games in Atlanta. I like seeing the athletes in their OC outfits..will try to find that part of the ceremony online.

    I wasn't too fond of them either. Maybe you should design the next ones. I'm glad we get to see a lot of the other athletes & hear their storise. Did you all see how the Chinese are doing medals this time? They are spectacular! They all have a ring of jade inlaid-white jade for the gold,between blue and white for silver and the blue for the bronze. I thought the bronze was knock-out. What treasures.

    Thanks,SVZ! They looked even better on TV-beautiful.
    Just saw Aussie swimmer Stephanie Rice swim the most fantastic race! She was so cute at her goldmedal ceremony. Good to hear "Advance Austrailia Fair" again!
    Mark Phelps was great too!

    There was one winter olympics, lillehammer i think.. the canadian team looked fucking SHARP.

    They had these red coats and pants, with high leather boots, black wool kinda russian looking hats, and red capes made out of the same material as the coat/pants inlaid with yellow. Best uniforms evar.

    Is there a webpage that states how many members are representing each country? I'm curious how many Aussies are there and my boyfriend wants to know how many Dutch.

    The Aussie team is 300+ I think, but not all of them participated in the opening ceremony, eg Grant Hackett (he came SIXTH hahahahaha).

    I'm only watching the Olympics on SBS or highlights on the news. Channel 7 is SO biased it's unwatchable.
