WHat can we make of the "helpers" uniforms? There has been spec that there may be a vague Olympic assoc this season:

Romanian Olympic gymnasts

Siberian Oylympic runners?

Beijjing swimming (spec) task

Nice if we could match the runners uniforms....

I think it's a student group. Compare the logo with the one on this page.

perhaps Margie & Luke were the first to finish the roadblock?
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

If Margie is taking a taxi, can we assume the start and finish lines are different? The students, according to this map, come from a campus north of Lenin square (map). That may mean something, or maybe the railroad students just share the library and volunteered for some camera time. The odd-cap-out is still the "hmpf" lady standing near the October bridge.

What do you guys think about the numbers on the runners?  Would they actually show the running order to us or is it just a random grab?

And also a U-TURN specially designed for them. That will make Danielle the only racer who have been Yielded and U-TURNed, in total of 4 times! :funny: As if once wasn't enough.

Okay, offtopic... :sneak

Well, at least we know Luke is starting the race. Good catch, Slowhatch.

"Start."  :doh:  :-[  :groan:

It could still be the finish line, because if it's both the start and finish line, most likely the sign that says "finish" will be at the opposite side.

Those frames with Luke can be interpreted two different ways:
* Luke hugging himself looks like he's just starting and is a bit nakedness-shy.
* Luke with fists in the air looks like he just finished the course.

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

I agree with Hakushu8. It looks like the race is finishing at the start line, common with circular or approximately so courses.

I have a question. If the start line and the finish line is the same place, why is Margie riding off in a cab? I was all for the single START/FINISH line scenario with the tents for warming and changing clothes. But that pic of Margie in the cab makes me think that there is a START line and a different located FINISH line. I think Margie is taking Luke's clothes to the finish line.

I think the pictures of Luke (just above) are at the finish line and the pictures of Jen (page 1) are at the start line. There is also a building behind Luke and there is nothing behind Jen but blue sky and a park. I am talking about a building that is perpendicular to the building with the blue portico that is behind Luke.

The warming/changeing tents are located at different places. In Jen's pictures, the tents are in FRONT of a blue portico. The portico has two levels of steps from the street level to the door level. In Luke's pictures, the tents are BESIDE the blue protico. This portico has no steps and is at street level.

 :waves: Hi to everyone. The following is my thoughts only. If you look at Reply #12 slide 3 you see the building entrance in the back and brown changing tents to the right, and the race asst. putting on the number vest. So this is the start. In reply #14 silde 1 you see the entrance in the back with brown tents in front. So it looks like Luke is just starting the race, (SHY then WHAT THE HELL) In reply #81 slide 1 you have the start sign with ballons forming an arch. Look behind the side crowd you can see another sign (look hard) green and white lettering and another ballon arch of balloons, so this could be the finish . Lukes mom is following Luke in the taxi in case she needs to SIGN for him. See van with door open must be camera car. Again this is my thoughts :duno:
DrRox the tents are the same place it's the camera angles   that make them look different.
