Cosmonauts at Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.
19:43

FDC with the Sochi first day cancellation.

On February 07, 2014 billions of people all over the world were able to witness an exciting show - the XXII Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.

The Sretensky Monastery men's choir sang the Russian National Anthem, while 240 volunteers stood in formation wearing glowing suits of white, red, and blue to represent the Russian flag. The Russian state flag bearers were a detachment of cosmonauts — Fyodor Yurchikhin (who returned from space with the Olympic torch), Roman Romanenko, Svetlana Savitskaya and Yelena Serova (not-flown) — and the flag was raised by Sergei Krikalev.

The Olympic flag was brought into the stadium with eight flag bearers. There was the first woman in space Valentina Tereshkova among the Olympic flag bearers.
