Sochi Olympics 2014: Opening Ceremony

The Olympic Rings will feature predominantly in the Opening Ceremony.
The Opening Ceremony is designed to showcase the best of the Host Nation, and will showcase the athletes and participating nations during the Parade of Athletes. Once the Games are officially open, the Olympic Flag will be brought into the stadium while the Olympic Anthem is played.  The Finale is, of course, the entrance of the Olympic Flame and the final torchbearer lighting the Cauldron, which will burn for the length of the Games.
