He's been quiet at the venues today but Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has been offering his thoughts on last night's spectacular opening ceremony.
“I think that I would express everyone’s opinion by saying that this show was very bright, appropriate for Russia and impressive,” RIA Novosti report him as saying. “At the same time, I would like to point out that this is only the beginning.”
“We should not relax after this bright beginning. On the contrary, we should mobilize all our resources,” Putin said.
Just about to begin at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park is the freestyle skiing ladies moguls final.
Defending champion Hannah Kearney from the USA topped qualifying but breathing down her neck are the Canadian sisters Chloe, Justine and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, who came second, third and eighth respectively.

So, Ole Einar Bjoerndalen of Norway takes gold in the men’s 10 km sprint biathlon with a time of 24:33.5. Dominik Landertinger of Austria claims silver while Jaroslav Soukup from the Czech Republic gets the bronze.
The pre-event favourite, Martin Foucarde of France could only make sixth position.
He’ll be disappointed with that but Bjoerndalen won’t care. That’s Olympic number 12 for him (7 gold, 4 silver and 1 bronze, in case you’re asking) Bravo Sir, bravo!

Only the third ever Bermudan athlete to compete in the Winter Olympics and the only competitor from the Caribbean Island at the 2014 Games, Tucker Murphy is a cross country skier appearing at his second Olympics.
Murphy carried the flag at the opening ceremony in Vancouver 2010 as well. Back then he was resplendent in bright red Bermuda shorts. Obviously! Believe it or not, he’s gone for the same bold sartorial style today.
He must be freezing!
