The Opening Ceremony “got off to a shaky start” after “one of the five Olympic rings failed to open at the start” of the ceremony. The symbol “could not be illuminated with fireworks as planned” because of the technical glitch. The sequence “had to be abandoned” and the show “went on with no further interruptions” (REUTERS, 2/7).
