The Opening Ceremonies were held in the neighbouring town of Freudenstadt. A very large stage was set up and a big production was made with speeches, official walk-on of the teams, and a huge concert afterwards. It felt pretty cool to be representing my country at such an event. Chris and I won the award for smallest team representation.
A video has been made by Hubi and it is incredible. Be sure to check it out: http://www.youtube.com/user/hubhubhurra#p/u/6/I2KL4ov3aCo
