SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 7, 2014 /CNW/ - Today marks the official opening of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games after much anticipation.

Tonight, our Canadian Olympic Team will march proudly into the Olympic stadium, led by our flag bearer and hockey athlete, Hayley Wickenheiser, to join the more than 2,800 athletes representing 82 countries as they begin their journey to the podium.

Countless hours go into training for the competition of a lifetime, and our athletes are ready to show the rest of the world what Canada brings to the playing field.

Our Government is proud to support our ever- inspiring Canadian athletes, and, along with all Canadians across the country, we will be watching, cheering and believing, as our athletes compete for our great nation with the maple leaf close to their hearts.
