Queen didn't open Sydney 2000 Olympics[edit]

See 2000 Summer Olympics opening ceremony The Queen notably didn't open the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Should this be included in the article?--TinTin (talk) 01:12, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

  • There is nothing notable about this. She didn't open the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne (Prince Philip did), and neither did she open the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary (the Governor-General of Canada did). The only notable thing about the 2000 Olympics was John Howard's initial bizarre suggestion that he open the Games, which he eventually relented on in favour of the Governor-General.GSTQ (talk) 04:58, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
