The Olympics may officially be underway, but the issues and negative stories continue to pour out of Sochi, Russia. From unfinished hotel rooms, to water as yellow and unpure as it could possibly be it has been a rough week or two for the good people of Sochi.
However even the opening ceremonies go off without a hitch as one of the rings molding itself from a snowflake didn't open.

To faceplants during the opening ceremonies
To journalists being locked out of rooms they've already been checked into.
It would appear the locks on my hotel room door have changed. This is news to me. This is ... interesting.— SeanFitz_Gerald (@SeanFitz_Gerald) February 7, 2014
Handyman cannot open the door. Lead front desk worker has disappeared. I am in the hall outside my room. With the handyman. It is quiet.— SeanFitz_Gerald (@SeanFitz_Gerald) February 7, 2014
Lead front desk worker comes back with more keys. Handyman tries all of them. Nothing. It is now 2:43am.— SeanFitz_Gerald (@SeanFitz_Gerald) February 7, 2014
To athletes locking themselves inside bathrooms, and breaking through doors.
I was taking a shower and the door got locked/jammed....— Johnny Quinn (@JohnnyQuinnUSA) February 8, 2014
Oh yeah, and that monitoring the media part.
For those who missed it overnight, we had this guy walking around scanning each and every laptop in the media center. pic.twitter.com/EC7lg7Lzot— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) February 8, 2014
