Daegu Opening Ceremony rivaled the Olympics (on smaller scale)
I wasnâ€™t in Daegu, but many of my Facebook friends were. They raved about the hospitality. One element was the Opening Ceremony. This 5-minute video devotes a big chunk to the performing acts. They seem professional and energetic. The clips that followed were kind of strange, starting with racewalkers. But a fair mix of throws (even the outdoor jav and discus) and jumps are shown with the sprints and hurdles. We see Bill Collins winning the M65 60, and Christa Bortignon long jumping. Lots of hugging shots (which I love). Who else do you see? Nice work by Andrew Purcell, or whoever made the video he posted.
