The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games – The Opening Ceremony In Review

Hello everyone!!! As you already watched the Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games unfold, I wanted to review the best and slightly unexpected parts of the Opening Ceremony in terms of the time duration.

To start off, the fireworks of the Opening Ceremony started off with a bang, it was to everyone’s expectations and was a pleasure to see Sochi ring in the Winter Olympics with a bang. The sequence was in perfect timing and was also a way to start the ceremony off, despite the amount of rushed time it took a few days previous to finish the construction on everything else.

I did kind of expect a small problem to occur during the opening ceremony, and to much of my amusement, I laughed as the last circle of the Olympic rings didn’t unfold, and over these past couple of hours, everyone has been uploading videos to the Twitter-based video service Vine of the technical malfunction on the last snowfall-based Olympic ring, and it has been all over newspaper websites, such as the Metro, and the Daily Mail (a.k.a. MailOnline).

Now with a technical malfunction such as this to happen, not everything is perfect, but also brings in line a number of improvements for future Winter Olympic Games and Summer Olympic Games to come.

Tonight has been an excellent night regarding the silentness in the night sky, but in honesty, just by watching the opening ceremony on TV, it felt as if I was there re-living the whole Olympic experience from when I went to the Paralympic games back in September 2012, as the atmosphere was calm and peaceful. It was truly an astounding and wonderful experience to watch the Opening Ceremony unfold live on TV.

To conclude, I have provided some handy links from the Zemanta plugin (free) of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games of further information for all of you to read at your viewing comfort, and have also provided a link below of a link from Daily Mail’s website:
