Naomi Osaka


Traditionally it never is announced in advance who will light the Olympic cauldron. I think the person(s) is generally told pretty late and while then clearly some will / have to know, they seem to always manage to keep it a general secret ( eg. Redgrave or whoever in London? )

In this case Naomi's schedule change did give a bit of a late clue that she was at least involved but they would never have publicly divulged the reason for that.

It was pretty obvious, particularly with the schedule change that Osaka would be the torch bearer.
She seems to have really embraced and enjoyed the responsibility and honour. So that's a wonderful thing for her.

For me it's not a significant part of any games, but then I'm a bit of a grouch, bloody loved the drones though !!

Can't say the opening ceremony had my undivided attention (the whole thing went on for far too long, IMHO), but the drones were brilliant, the highlight of the thing.

 The Met Gala is known for it's out of the world outfits. I can assure you, it isn't just Naomi. Not for popping down the shops!biggrin

Naomi's sister (Mari, the former tennis player) helped design the dress.

 Perhaps her sister should join her in seeking help.

 It would be bearable if the cape was red and matched the sash, the black is hideous and overpowering but I'm not wearing it so heyho.  I thought Emmas dress was OK but again the scarf ruined it, just too much.  Anna Wintour had the best dress.

 Not understanding someone's design doesn't mean someone is mentally ill.

No, but it was meant in jest
And, you never know, the addict might have a point - just because we need to be sensitive to different interpretations of art etc, doesn't mean we should ignore what might be clear indications something's not right - Van Gogh might have been a genius, but he had his mental health issues, and you could tell it from his art
