National anthem now, performed by Russian choir. Also, President Vladimir Putin and IOC president Thomas Bach are in the building.

Have to say, I'm impressed with the setup as the athletes enter the stadium. A giant image of each country as seen from space is being beamed onto the floor of the stadium as each country's team enters.
Yeah! It's the Jamaican bobsled team!
And here's the Russian Federation Team. Music's changed and the crowd's now on their feet (including Putin).
Giant mechanical versions of the Sochi mascots now moving around the stadium.
A dramatic video outlining the history of Russia playing now playing.
Giant lighted version of the Troika -- an iconic symbol of Russian culture -- now floating into the stadium.
Dancers, acrobats and giant floats now taking over the centre of the stadium.
