Opening ceremonies for the 2014 Sochi Winter Games

Created: 02/07/2014 6:21 AM WHEC.com

It's one of the most anticipated events of the Olympics – tonight we will get to see the opening ceremonies.

Competitions have been underway for more than a day now but tonight, representatives from all the competing nations will march into the Olympic stadium.   

Team USA will be led by Nordic combined skier Todd Lodwick. He's America's only six-time winter Olympian.

Many of the athletes will hit the slopes and rinks again Saturday so they will face the tough decision of whether to walk in tonight's opening ceremony or rest-up for the next round of competition.
