The 12-part opening ceremony included singing by Taiwanese pop star A Mei and appearance by actor Jet Lee and choreographed artistic performances themed on Taiwan’s landscape, ecology, and even its food. One of the acts meant to highlight Taipei as a culinary capitol had performers dressed up as noodles vegetables and stewed eggs. They assembled into the famous local dishes such as minced pork and beef noodle soup.

Many of the performers who are deaf respond to split-second visual cues. The Deaf Olympics features 20 sports, including soccer, swimming, wrestling, table tennis and orienteering. A record 4000 athletes from 81 countries are registered to compete this year. In August, the approaching Deaf Olympics were overshadowed by typhoon Moracot, whose record rains triggered massive mudslide that wiped out one village and cut off many more from early rescue efforts. Moracot which dumped record rainfall on Taiwan from August 7th to 9th is blamed for the death of over 700 people to date.
