The producer of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony, Konstantin Ernst, explained the technical hitch that prevented the last of the five Olympic rings from opening on Friday.
SOUNDBITE (Russian) Konstantin Ernst, producer of opening ceremony:
"The rings were the most simple technological thing. We know all the world shows (the opening ceremony), and I can tell you that taking into account the technical difficulty of the so called high mechanics, we are the first who did it. All the rest (of the opening ceremony) went well."
