Sochi Olympics 2014: Closing Ceremony

A medal ceremony earlier in the week at Sochi

The Closing Ceremony celebrates the achievements of athletes at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games, and includes a Handover to the next Host City, Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the 2018 Olympic Games. 

The March of the Athletes showcases the athletes marching into the stadium all together, and not by nationality, to show the world coming together as one nation.  The ceremony will conclude with the extinguishing of the Olympic Flame signifying the end of the 2014 Games.
