The kids were really cute. I noticed the cheerleaders were pretty tuckered out by the end of the ceremony. Actually, they started to run out of steam before it was halfway through, but given the heat and pollution, they did pretty well. I noticed they had water bottles as part of their uniforms, which was sensible. Some of the teams had very strange outfits. And some of them had me wondering how the athletes managed to keep from passing out -- they looked really hot and uncomfortable!
