Pyrotechnics, technology, hip hop dancers, history, K-Pop, opera, 1200 co-ordinated drones, 100 skiiers and the return of Tonga’s oiled-up flag-bearer were amongst the highlights at last night’s Opening Ceremony in PyeongChang.

Rivalries have been suspended for the 16 days of competition of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games between the two nations. A theme of Peace was prominent throughout the spectacular event, including a performance of John Lennon’s Imagine.
PyeongChang did not disappoint with incredible visuals, in the Olympic Stadium and beyond. 51 Australians were led by flag-bearer Scotty James.
