The 2014 Winter Olympics got off to an impressive start on Friday in Sochi, Russia until an Olympic ring failed to open due to a malfunction.

The opening ceremony, set to be televised on tape delay in the United States on Friday evening, displayed Russia’s contributions to the world in culture, arts, and science, and concluded under five bright snowflakes that eventually morphed into the iconic Olympic rings.

“Well, you get the point,” an announcer shrugged.
