Russia pokes fun at itself by deliberately doing a repeat of the Olympic ring fail in closing ceremony
Russia proved it had a sense of humour by deliberately doing a repeat of the Olympic ring fail.

Russia proved to the world it had a sense of humour by deliberately doing a repeat of the Olympic ring fail in the closing ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics this year. In the closing ceremony, dancers mimicked the expanding rings of the Olympic logo. However, similar to what the world witnessed in its opening ceremony, the fifth ring of dancers did not expand to position. While the technical glitch that caused the ring failure during the opening ceremony was a mistake, this one was done on purpose in an attempt to make light of what everybody had termed as a huge embarrassment. Unlike the opening ceremony, the fifth ring did expand during the closing ceremony to complete the Olympic symbol with its five rings. Watch the video here.
