Oslo 2022 set list of demands
22:24 Allow me to divert attention away from Sochi for a brief moment, to report on a development in the race for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Norwegian politicians want the International Olympic Committee to pay for their own accommodation at Oslo 2022, as part of a series of demands. Full story here.
22:20 We've been treated to quite some Opening Ceremony in Sochi, but Ukraine's statement during the athletes' parade - only their flagbearer took part - will perhaps be the main talking point.
22:12 And after a little less than two hours, that brings to an end a dramatic, colourful and captivating Opening Ceremony.
22:11 Fireworks and jets of water from the fountain below herald the lighting of the Paralympic cauldron.
22:10 As in the Olympics, the small cauldron is lit. The flames shoot towards the main cauldron and in a shower of flame and sparks, it is alight.
22:08 Sergey Shilov, six-times cross-country skiing Paralympic champion, is one of two heading out of the stadium to light the cauldron.
22:04 The Paralympic Flame has arrived in the stadium.
22:02 We're now watching a film charting the journey of the Paralympic Flame, and the history of the Paralympic Movement.
22:01 The Agitos, the symbol of the Paralympics, light up on the floor of the stadium in a dramatic conclusion to the segment.
Extended highlights from the spectacular Opening Ceremony of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, featuring amazing displays of music, art, dance and culture.
