Russia Hides Olympic Rings Blunder on TV Broadcast

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIFebruary 8, 2014

An awkward situation in Sochi has gotten even more awkward from the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics.

During the opening ceremony for the Olympics there was a malfunction with one of the rings during a sequence as it failed to transition from a snowflake to a full ring, as you can see from the picture above.

However, it appears that no one in Russia saw the malfunction. As you can see from this tweet by Steve Wilson from The Associated Press, the Russian TV coverage used pre-recorded footage to hide the fact that there was a technical glitch.

With so many other crazy things happening so far in Sochi, this is just another one to add to the list.

Hat tip to Michael Katz from SB Nation for the find.
