Sochi Olympics 2014: Olympics Ring Fails to Deploy in Opening Ceremony

Breitbart


Sochi Olympics 2014: Olympics Ring Fails to Deploy in Opening CeremonyWorries about the quality of Russia’s Sochi winter Olympics seemed to be well founded as one of the giant Olympic rings light displays failed to deploy during the Friday opening ceremony.

Five enormous snowflakes dropped from the ceiling over a choir in traditional Russian garb. Four out of five of the huge snowflakes opened up into the Olympic rings, but the fifth one failed to deploy. This forced the planners to abandon the feature.

The technical failure was mocked relentlessly on Twitter.
