My Peterio Awards (Part Eleven: Best Olympic Moment)


While any of Michael Phelp's narrow victories would do, it was the spectacular Opening Ceremony directed by Zhang Yimou that was overwhelmingly breathtaking to take the prize. From those drummers, to the human operated blocks, from the IMAX-size paint canvas to the final torch relay around the outer rim of the Bird's Nest, China wanted to the rest of the world to be wowed and I think it is safe to say we were more than impressed. Watch those blocks.. just watch those blocks...

Other Notable Nominees: Swimming Men's 4x100 Freestyle Relay (swimming), Men's 100 Butterfly (swimming), Men's 100 race (running) & Rohullah Nikpai wins Afghanistan's first Olympic medal (taekwondo)
