With the opening ceremony fast approaching, it’s safe to say the road to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia hasn’t been the smoothest in Olympic history.

Nicknamed the ‘Russian Riveria’ for its mild climate and location next to the Black Sea, Sochi has a history as a resort town — but has never hosted an event on such an international scale. That may be why Russia has poured over 51 billion dollars into funding the project, making it the most expensive Olympic games ever, the Washington Post reports.
But even so, the games haven’t even started yet, but we already can make a little collection of their fails,…this time the signs!
