London Vs Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony: Which Was Better? by Mekky2010: 6:40am On Jul 28, 2012
I believe that every country hosting the Olympics always endeavors to out do its predecessor in a grandiose opening ceremony?

Do you think London succeeded in that quest?

Do you give it to the Brits or the Chinese?

I give it to London, it was original, mixed with comedy and historically presented.

Definitely Beijing!

The London opening, at a budget of $42 million, did have some charm, but the Beijing olympics, at a whooping $100 million totally blows it out of the water, both in spectacle and an extremely rich culture dating back thousands of years.

The flying man with the torch, the 2,008 percussionists, the over 870 water manipulators plus a weather-altering machine? ABEG! China nailed it thoroughly!

Beijing still stands as the most spectacular opening in history. Universally acclaimed! cool
