Sochi Winter Olympics ring FAIL!!

The Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in Sochi is considered the most expensive Olympics Opening Ceremony. The ceremony was fantastic with the exotic display of the culture and history of Russia, and the run with the fire by Russia's best athletes. The ceremony was amazing and all that, but something went wrong known as "THE RING FAIL", there were four rings instead of five. The magnificent attempt to display the Olympics symbol when the fifth ring refused to form. What a way ruin the ceremony, the ceremony was still amazing any ways and that is what I think. What do you think?

disdain for another person's behavior.
