Considering it's live event, the photo's pretty good. Quite why anyone would publicly Facebook tag themselves on the picture is quite a different matter.

Well it opens now it was just the top half that opened for me earlier.

It opened fine for me in Win 7 Firefox and the detail is amazing. What was more surprising to me was the many hundreds of empty seats I was able to see going round the arena. It looked very full but certainly was not even allowing for some to be at the toilet.

The photo is a composite of 425 photos taken over an hour, during the athletes parade. I think a good number of people may well have left during the tedium of this part of the event.
