    “Prior to 1951, the official handbook stated that each color corresponded to a particular continent: blue for Europe, yellow for Asia, black for Africa, green for Australia and Oceania and red for America †-Wikipedia

    I think it's hilarious that Russia is trying to become world-class and they keep having all of these fails. I'm sure they tested that ring transformation a hundred times before the actual opening.

    Russia's succeeding in making themselves look pathetic. Frankly, does anyone look up to or admire them? Feh. :no:

    The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia was found dead today.
    According to local reports the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds.
    Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape.
    Although his body was badly mangled and the wounds were consistent with a struggle, so far officials say they don't suspect foul play.
    “Sure there were stab wounds and bruises all over the body,†admits the lead investigator on the case, “But who knows what caused them. Maybe he tripped and fell on a set of knives. Right now we’re ruling this an accidental death.
    :candle: :facepalm:
