commentary toned down tokyo olympics opening ceremony can set new standard for future games

Sumary of Commentary: Toned-down Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony can set new standard for future games:

  • The brainchild of world-famous film director Zhang Yimou, the event was seen by the rest of the world as China’s coming-out party, a declaration of its status as a powerful force in the world.
  • London four years later was less extravagant – and came in at less than half the price – but the madcap performance encapsulating a commentary on the world’s collective social and cultural history created by famed director Danny Boyle was still pretty insane.
  • After the excitement had worn off, UK newspaper The Guardian questioned the legacy of the games when sports education funding in public schools four years after had declined and PE classes cut.
  • Well-funded private schools with their top-quality sporting facilities and highly qualified coaches will continue to dominate competitive sport, concluded education correspondent Sally Weale.
  • The 2016 Rio Olympics closing ceremony, in which Japan’s teaser hints at many of these pop culture elements suggest the same themes will likely be employed, but nobody really knows what the scaled-down version will look like.
