Live broadcast of the ICM opening ceremony

On the facebook page of ICM2014 it says that the live broadcast on aug 13 (aug 12 in the americas) will be on and will last for 70 minutes.

It will start at 9:20am Korean time, so that’s:

04:50am Teheran time (aug 13)

2:20am Paris and Vienna time (aug 13)

1:20am London time (aug 13)

9:20pm Rio time (aug 12)

8:20pm NYC time (aug 12)

5:20pm LA time (aug 12)

So, not too bad for those in Asia or the Americas, more difficult for those in Europe and the Middle East…

Some pre-ceremony stats (inspired by the wikipedia page) that may or may not change:

Number of previous women winners: 0

Age of youngest winner: 27 (Serre)

At least one Russian winner (true since 1994, so 5 in a row so far)

All winners are in the 36-40 age bracket (was true in 2010)

At least one winner works in Probability broadly speaking (true in 2006 and 2010)

No winner born in the US (true since 2002)

At least one of the winners has held a permanent position in France at some point during his/her pre-medal career (true since 2002)

About 24 hours to go…
