I agree. When it comes down to it, it's all about what's going to look good on television when the networks break to commercial or show aerial shots of the Olympic Park. London failed in this regard,

Putin's giant orbital death laser battle station platforms which he's set to announce to the world tonight.

Compared to London's minute and very elusive cauldron, At least Sochi's is fit for purpose and visible to public.

So there are rings in the cauldron area...could this mean that the 'ring reveal' will happen outside? Could they be spreading their OC out of the stadium a little?

No, no. no. That's NOT the only place where the rings will appear. The Big Cauldron area will be the Medals Plaza too, so that area will be lit every night for the Awards AND fireworks.

To be honest those rings looks like the base of the fountain. There was an Instagram video of tenfountain being tested a while ago so I think those rings are just the spouts. And if they were rings, wouldn't the fountain obscure them?

So... I guess the spouts should be in colors, don't they???

For moments I thought those rings could be fire rings on water at Sydney and Salt Lake style....

If they were fire rings, they wouldn't have painted the neck of the cauldron white. It would darken with all that soot from the flames. And I believe the IOC is rather conscious of the carbon imprints of its Games these days. The 3 caldera at the Innsbruck 2012 opening burned only at about 1:30; and then they shut them off quickly. The IOC had no heart attack over the 204 little flames of London. The one big Sochi cauldron should more than do its job as a symbolic beacon for these Games.

/\/\ very nice!! Very Bellagio but I hope when the waters rise higher than the flame, uhmmm....it won't put the flame out??? Or did they not think of that???

(Also, if one looks closely at the footage, notice that they ripped open part of the 'right wing.' I guess some last-minute or overlooked matters there.)
