Rowing in Rio: Opening Ceremonies
August 6, 2016
Before I begin, if you want a really detailed description from the athlete perspective check out Beth Green’s Facebook page. I also reposted on my page.
All athletes could March in opening ceremonies and coaches needed marching passes. Rowing received one marching pass and one ticket. Beth marched with Emily and they got some great prime time coverage, unless of course you live in Canada and were on commercial break for the “B’s”. I used the ticket and sat in the second row with one of the swimming coaches. My favorite moment after watching the Bahamas walk in was being drowned by confetti. I stayed to the end and climbed into bed at 2am.
