Watching the opening ceremony on live now,

Its absolutely beautiful and so impressive.

The concept of each performance is so fresh and creative.
City of GZ and province of GD , the hydro and oceanic ceoncept really well matched with its geographical and historical background.

Good Job !

damn u CCTV! they stopped broadcasting the ceremony when the firework show was still on...

like we discussed here before, the show is great but without many surprise elements due to the openness of rehearsals.

Anyhow, let's wait for ceremony pictures, and more games pictures.

I like it how each Chinese city is trying to outdo the other. First it was Beijing in 2008 (Olympics), then Shanghai 2010 (Expo) and now this.

Internal competition

Asian Games sets sail on Pearl River

Updated:2010-11-12

Quote:
Guangzhou, November 12 - The 16th Asian Games opened in central Guangzhou on Friday in a blaze of pyrotechnics as China staged the biggest sporting gala since the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao attends the Opening Ceremony of the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong Province, Nov 12, 2010. (Xinhua/Zhang Duo)

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao declared open the Games in the middle of the Pearl River on Haixinsha Island, to the thunderous explosion of a massive fireworks display with residential buildings and the 610-metre high Canton Tower as a backdrop.

"Remember, you are part of history right here, right now," Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah , President of Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) said at the Opening Ceremony.

"Please show us your best performance, and show us the spirit of sportsmanship, fair play, friendship and respect to your fellow athletes and officials."

Olympic diving champion He Chong ignited a giant firework whose flare shot up and lit the cauldron.

The Asiad flame returned to Guangzhou on Nov 5 after being relayed in Beijing, Harbin, Changchun, Haiyang and 21 cities across Guangdong Province.

Before the lighting of the cauldron, Afghanistan headed the athlete parade, which was concluded by host China with Olympic women's rowing champion Jin Ziwei as the flag bearer.

Befitting a city and a continent whose very foundations depend on the convergence of land and water, the Opening Ceremony centred on the river, its islands and its riverbanks.

Before the nearly 30,000 spectators on Haixinsha Island saw the athletes and officials, ten of thousands of ordinary Guangzhou residents had welcomed the Games to their city as the 45 participating delegations sailed down the Pearl River from White Swan Bay.

Film star Zhang Ziyi and pianist Lang Lang performed in a water-themed arts show that marked Guangzhou's history as China's gateway to the ancient Maritime Silk Road.

At last Games in Doha, China headed the table with 166 gold medals, followed by South Korea into the second with 58 and Japan third with 50.

Thirty-five Olympic gold medalists, including 110-metre hurdler Liu Xiang and badminton ace Lin Dan, spearhead the 1,454-member Chinese delegation.

The Guangzhou Games is the largest ever Asian Games featuring 28 Olympic and 14 non-Olympic sports with 476 gold medals up for grabs. The Games will see the debuts of cricket, dance sports, dragon boat racing, roller sports and Go chess.

Guangdong Province built and renovated more than 70 stadiums. The air and water quality in Guangzhou has been improved, its transportation system updated and barrier-free facilities in place. Some 900,000 volunteers will go all out to ensure a comfortable and safe environment for the audience and athletes.

The Asian Games has urged Guangzhou residents to behave in a more civilised manner as a massive education campaign was launched shortly after the city won the hosting rights in 2004.

Guangzhou officials have handed out one million brochures and sent 40 million text messages to teach its citizens better manners and even how to smile.

The Asian Games will run through Nov 27.

The boat parade, flying bird (by actors), cauldron lighting-up are pretty impressive.
