As I type this, most of the competitors in Sochi, Russia are resting up before a full day of competition tomorrow, but the XXII Olympic Winter Games are officially open.

So far, though, most of the attention leading up to the start of competition has been focused on the unusual living conditions that many international journalists were met with upon their arrivals, and the extreme government plans to deal with the large numbers of stray dogs.

But, now that the games are officially open, it's all about the athletes. Some of the most elite sports men and women in the world will be going against each other to reach "Faster, Higher, Stronger" heights.
