Loves & greetings from 🇹🇷 Turkey! Good luck to all participants. 🏺🇬🇷 Greece's position of honor in the Parade of Nations is a tribute to its history as the birthplace of the ancient Olympics, as well as the host of the first modern Olympics in 1896. At every Olympics, the Greek delegation leads the way, followed then by all the other nations in alphabetical order according to the host nation's language, with the host nation entering last. A tradition has also developed of honoring upcoming Olympic host nations by having them move to the end of the order, just in front of the host nation. For instance, this year in Tokyo, the US delegation entered third-to-last, as hosts of the 2028 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles; followed by France, which will host the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris; and finally, the Japanese delegation.
This is probably the smallest crowd at an Olympic opening ceremony since St.Louis 1904. Very sad for Tokyo, which really did a good job under the circumstances.
If you had expected a big party like the opening ceremonies in the past, you might have been a little bit disappointed. But I think Japan pulled off a very graceful, emotional ceremony with respect to the current situation.
With or without spectators, the athletes looked very proud and happy, and I just hope that they can all give their best and the event will bring some happiness to people in the world, and those who strived for making this event possible. Thank you Japan, for holding this event, in this difficult time.

42:27 never felt as proud to be Irish
Amazing Opening Ceremony! Tears came into my eyes! It reminds us ALL in this planet what it means to be human.. and yes, fight for faster, higher, stronger.. and together! To be good, very good, body and mind.... Not forgetting our planet, climate, biodiversity, minorities, refugees and so on...
The Olympics represent the best of our species... I hope it remains a symbol of hope for millions of years to come!
Wish the best for ALL participating Athletes! You make us ALL so proud! :)
Man, I cannot help but notice the underwhelming presence of a "crowd" cheering the different nations on. It lacks a certain type of "punch" that other opening ceremonies have had. Of course this isn't Japan's fault.

The Athletes are still happy and joyful despite the Corona Situation, seeing them in that Mood brings Joy to my heart. Inspite of all the struggles and Challenges they have been through, God has made it possible for them to achieved their dreams. Go guys Show your Talents to the World💪💪, Love you all. May God Punish Corona and all its conspirators. It shall not be well them.. The Evil they have done will not live after them but the Evil they have done will live with them.
That was stunning! Absolutely loved the performances, their symbolism and esthetics!!!

Andreas Viklund:
Dear Eurosport and the rest of YouTube, is the opening ceremony available without broadcast hosts that keeps on talking for four hours? As much as I love to listen to people talking about interesting topics, I would really want to see and hear the ceremony itself - just the way that lots of TV broadcasts and streaming channels during the games are shown without hosts. I really like those silent events, and really want to watch them without having to mute the sound.
Good luck everyone!🇵🇹🇵🇹

All things considered, this was a great opening ceremony. However, Japan should get the opportunity to host again soon, this was not their best, but it was the best given the COVID-19 situation. 👏
