Was it the “greatest show on the earth?” Or is that the wrong question? How does any nation or any organisation evaluate large organisational goals and objectives, with some degree of objectivity and professionalism? But was this not the greatest performance in Olympic history? How does one professionally evaluate such large systems performance? Is that even possible when hundreds of variables are involved in any such evaluation? Maybe such an evaluation may not even be worth it? Or are there other important questions and issues to consider?
