She’s back! The Russians showed a sense of humor with a nod in the closing ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics to the malfunctioning fifth snowflake from the opening festivities, which famously didn’t open to join her brethren in forming giant Olympic rings, becoming one of the symbols of the games.
