Technical Specialist Still Alive After Olympic Rings Fiasco


(PCM) The man responsible for operating the Olympic Rings during last night’s Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Russia,T. Borris Avdeyev, is still alive, contrary to online reports.

Several websites (and Facebook rumors) said that the body of T. Borris Avdeyev was found his hotel room early this morning with multiple stab wounds. He wasn’t. He’s alive.

Avdeyev was a technical specialist responsible for the Olympic Ring spectacle, which embarrassingly malfunctioned last night. Five animatronic snowflakes were supposed to transform into Olympic Rings. The first four functioned properly but the fifth snowflake failed to change shape.

The original site for this story, The Daily Currant, is a well-known parody site.
