SOCHI, Russia – As many people have criticized Sochi for being unprepared for the Olympic Games, one more mishap was on display during the opening ceremony.

Visitors and athletes were treated to an amazing display of wealth, as these games are described as the most expensive Olympics ever.

The ceremony presented Russia as a country with a rich and complex history that is emerging as a power nation.

During the ceremony, snowflakes can be seen floating around the stage.

The flakes were supposed to open to create the iconic Olympic rings.

However, one of the flakes failed to open, making the symbol into four interlocking rings.

The Olympic rings were designed in 1912 to include all the colors of the nations that participated in the games.
