There is no better image for these Sochi Olympics than light going dark once inside the Russian border.

The Olympic flame arrived in Moscow on Sunday and after a ceremonial welcome, a torch was lit and a former Russian olympian set out on a trot, flame held high. He ran through an enclosed passageway that must have created a wind tunnel and, moments after emerging from it, the flame went out. Fortunately, Prometheus bound in overcoat-and-tie was nearby with a lighter and total crisis was averted.
