Before the fireworks, the traditional Olympic flame was extinguished by one of the Sochi mascots. In what was a very emotional ending, the mascot blew out the Olympic flame. Fans got to see Misha, the 1980 bear, as it appeared briefly on the screen when the Sochi Bear paused before blowing out a cauldron of flame inside Fisht Stadium. Basically at the same time, the Olympic flame outside was extinguished, and in nod to Misha, one tear falls gently down the Sochi bear mascot's cheek.

Take a look at the photo slideshow of the ending of the Sochi Olympics. With all the fireworks in the sky it was a splendid ending to the conclusion of the 2014 Olympics. The athletes all go home as honored guests of the world and everyone felt pretty good after seeing such a beautiful ending.
