From March 2010
Complementing what I've written about the Beijing Olympics on theopenscroll.com in eight parts (Olympic Ceremony Symbolism), this series focuses primarily on one very important element from Vancouver's Winter Games. Beyond the athletic events and athletes, the most memorable scenes for most will probably involve the Olympic flame torch cauldron inside the main stadium. What appeared to be a mechanical failure was probably not, but rather an intentional signaling of a very, VERY important message. Attention was drawn to it in both the opening and closing ceremonies.
This "sticky" page presents links to all the posts in the series.
