RE: Cauldron lighting letdown
I thought the technical and visual aspect of the cauldron and lighting was amazing, and I think the choice of 7 (likely future Olympians, not just random kids) young sportsmen/women from a variety of sports and nominated by Olympic heroes from the past was inspired. It fits in entirely with the original pledge in 2005 that this would be a Games to inspire a generation of Youth and to leave a long term legacy.
It also solved the problem of having to choose between Redgrave, Thompson, etc.
Well done Danny Boyle!
