The opening ceremony is a difficult idea. And this is not only because the audience is not allowed to sit in the stadium. At first, a Japanese woman ran alone on a treadmill for minutes. why? Nobody really knows.
Large fireworks, which should guarantee a good atmosphere in the country, are pleasant to look at, but they do not last 20 seconds. Then the SRF also has audio problems that make it hard to watch.
Kambundji and Heinzer waving the Swiss flag
The Delegation of Switzerland would highlight the matter. Led by runner Mujinga Kambundji (29) and fencer Max Heinzer (33) as the flagbearer, after waiting for an hour and a half, they all happily entered the stadium and at least for the moment amuse the tragedy.
By the way: Kentaro Kobayashi (58), the creative director of the opening ceremony, will be fired the day before for his performance. Reason? Over 20 years ago, he parodied the victims of the Holocaust as a comedian. A video has now emerged of this costing him his job.
The opening ceremony did not create any enthusiasm yet. Hopefully, at least, the sports portion of this year’s games brings some excitement. (fmü)
