It is a pretty interesting video shot on a weekday in the Olympic Park in Sochi – about one year after the Games.
Olympic Games in Sochi have been very successful for the Russian team – the total number of medals won (33) is a national team record. The same number of gold medals (13), the Russian national team (at that time the Soviet Union team) won only one time in 1976.
There are a lot of jokes about holding Winter Olympic Games 2014 in subtropical city but sports disciplines that require snowy slopes are carried out in the mountains where there is snow in abundance. Photos: © RIA NOVOSTI/Anton Denisov published in drugoi

It is a very cool series of photos. Look at the picture on the TV screen and how it is changing while Vladimir Putin is turning to it.
Even if the photos are photoshopped, there is some symbolism in them. Also, it should be noted that viewers at least in Russia saw this part of the ceremony this way.
The opening ceremony of the XXII Olympic Winter Games took place at the Olympic Stadium “Fisht” in Sochi on February 7, 2014. The history of the Russian state was shown in the theatrical part of the ceremony.
Over three thousand dancers, acrobats, actors, aerialists, ballet dancers and singers took part in this show. About three billion people watched the broadcast of the ceremony. Source: drugoi
