The Olympics in Sochi. Two years later

In our country today marks the anniversary of the opening of the XXII winter Olympic games in Sochi. I think, 7 February 2014 the Russians will be remembered for a long time. Exactly 2 years ago at the stadium “Fisht” held a colourful launch ceremony of the Olympics, where it directly observed 40 thousand people, and another three billion people on the planet could watch it live. The spectacle was Grand, with it to argue difficult.
