I watched the end of the Paralympics - Beijing, China yesterday and the official close of this year's games with the handover to London 2012 and the going out of the Olympic flame... I thought it was a spectacular event and really well organised and it was such a marvel. The dancers, the petals, the fireworks..beautiful I am sure it may have made some people hold back a tear with the little girl and the singing at the end.. Did you watch the event? What did you think?

I watched some parts of the Paralympics opening ceremony. Unfortunately I didn't watch all of it because later my colleague told me the performance is just so fantastic. I did watch the close ceremony. It's a good show, but I think the opening ceremony will be better. I hope there will be the DVD for Paralympics later, so that I can buy and keep it at home. I love China

I also look forward to the Olympics in London in 2012. It must be another splendid performance and be sure I would like to have its DVD later when it releases. I am a big fan of the Olympics

Paralymics 2008 End - The fireworks display
It was nicely done and was quite a spectacle... the comments afterwards were about how the country that invented fireworks put on quite a show with them

Hi marina. I do and I agree with you that it was beautiful. What I liked the most is the way they treated this games in the same way that the Olympics with the same importance. Before we didn't seen this, the opening and the close were so simple. But China did well because I think that those athletes deserve much more because they are doing much more than the others athletes that are normal. I think that China did it in a fair way making this beautiful official close. Cheers and have a nice day.

Sorry I did not get to see it. I was out and about running errands. Sometimes I do not get to watch much television, only the new mostly.
