Video- Ovechkin Carries The Olympic Torch

via the Guardian,

The Olympic torch for Sochi 2014 is lit on Sunday during a ceremony in ancient Olympia in Greece. The president of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Organising Committee says the event is 'very symbolic for Russia'. The flame is ignited by actress Ino Menegaki and is passed on to Alpine skier Ioannis Antoniou, and then Russian NHL star Alex Ovechkin. The ceremony marks the beginning of the longest torch relay for any Winter Games, including a trip into space.

Below, watch a video from the ceremony, Ovechkin appears in the last 20 seconds or so...

Looks like they were burning some film strips.
Maybe some Russian criminal enterprise has taken over the ceremony and used it to burn some incriminating evidence. wink
