Sochi Olympics 2014 Opening Ceremony - See Picture Highlights!

The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are underway, and the opening ceremony took place earlier in the day on Friday (February 7) at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia.

For those who can’t wait – here are some highlight pictures, including teams from around the world entering the stadium, a fireworks show, and an unfortunate incident where 5 illuminated snowflakes were supposed to turn into the 5 Olympic rings, but sadly, one malfunctioned and only four rings lit.

No.1 at 101; The above four rings sing represents the four flying wheels in Ezekiel 10.

Just add the 4 out of 5 rings to the disaster that is the 2014 Winter Olympics. My favorite part of this whole thing is that Russia/Sochi have had 7 years and $50 BILLION dollars to prepare for this thing and nothing is finished. The water is dangerous. Places have no roofs, lobbies, doors, safe fire doors, Internet, heat, etc… There is a horrific case of hacking going on there now. They forced families out of their homes and into these stupid new apartments that don’t take animals, so people just let go of their pets on the street and now the Russian government is shooting all the dogs. The terrorist attacks prior, the fact that they can’t find some of the prominent terrorists that are wanted, the black widows, that one female terrorist got through security. Toothpaste bombs. Civil unrest with Ukraine. A plane from the Ukraine to Sochi had to be diverted to Turkey after a bomb threat was made. I mean the list just goes on.

My only wish is that NO terrorist attack happens. My fear is that with all the lagging in every thing regarding this Olympics, are they up to date on their security. Are they smart? Are they ready? etc…

Didn’t watch it.

Annabelle @ 02/07/2014 at 5:04 pm

It looks beautiful!


Pictures say enough. Olympic games in sochi are a fail and a cruelty fest.

why are you bringing attention to this hateful mess?

i will gladly watch stochi OG @ 02/07/2014 at 8:01 pm

opening ceremony was great all the athletes interviewed said it was very beautifull. americans bashing at usual, cause they think they are some guardian of democracy, you guys are not even in position to criticize Russia how about Guantanamo and irak ? clean YOUR own side of the street first before criticizing others

@i will gladly watch stochi OG:

I’m not from US and not only US is criticizing Russia…the whole world is.
Your government sucks.

breezedash @ 02/08/2014 at 5:25 pm

haha, all your negative comments are so funny, really. the ceremony was great, so sorry, you’re wrong. you said something about our russian government, but THE FACT is that you believe ONLY what your CNN and FOX say. and it’s sad. Be open-minded. I’m from Russia, and despite the fact that our government doesn’t like your government, I have a high opinion of USA, I respect its history, people and so on. You criticize our Olympics because of politics, but you forgot about all those who have worked hard on this, and those people ARE NOT government, they are just workers who wanted to make everything for EVERYONE perfect. So don’t criticize or hate or stereotype, we are all people

breezedash @ 02/08/2014 at 5:28 pm

And yes JJ, you’re sucks. You didn’t write no one good word about ceremony, such a shame for you. Is your site is a political puppet?

breezedash @ 02/08/2014 at 5:30 pm

OMG where did you find all that information?))) I laugh out loud) Thx, you made my day!

Now children try to get along. Yes ceremony was fantastic. No need to criticize, unless you have an undertone agenda.No, European/ Canadian/South America/ World traveller. Heh, set aside your garbage look around for a receptacle.Sit back and enjoy. The athletes want to be there it’s about them not you all. Good job Sochi .Bravo!

The opening ceremony was absolutely beautiful! All athletes say that they are impressed by the high standards in Sochi. Those who believe some fake pictures on the Internet seems like living in the stone age. Hey guys, have you heard about Photoshop? :) Anyway, I am enjoying the games, everything is beautiful! And those who are not watching, just robbing themselves from a great show and entertainment!
