    It’s hard to believe the Winter Olympics in Sochi are already over. It seems like just yesterday the endless array of #SochiProblems began unfolding on social media and the oozing, festering eyeballs of NBC’s Bob Costas horrified a nation. 

    Though the closing ceremony is behind us and the official medal count in the books, the Olympics will always live on because of the stories of the athletes who competed in Sochi and through the photos that chronicled every moment. 

    Here are just a few of the coolest photos from the 2014 Winter Olympics
