The Social Games
U.S. athletes provided updates throughout the Opening Ceremony in Sochi via social media, giving us an up-close look at the extravaganza.
That American Style
Team USA's Opening Ceremony outfits were the cause of much consternation when they were unveiled. Do they look better in action? You be the judge.

A World of Color
Sochi's Opening Ceremony was a colorful affair. Check out some of the best images.
Raising The Stars & Stripes
Nordic skier Todd Lodwick proudly carried the U.S. flag into Fisht Olympic Stadium, joining an exclusive list of flag bearers. See who else has had the honor.
Flame of Hope
After much speculation, the honor of lighting the Olympic cauldron went to Russian hockey great Vladislav Tretiak and three-time gold medalist figure skater Irina Rodnina.
