(Photos) A Decade Later: Remembering the Greatest Opening Ceremony Ever at the Olympics


No words are necessary to recall the visual, musical and emotional spectacle that Dimitris Papaioannou created to open the 2004 Olympiad in Athens, but one: genius. The epic night was August 13, 2004. Memories remain for many who watched and were lucky enough to be present.
