In the previous segments, XXII Olympic Winter Games - Sochi and Prometheus, then XXII Olympic Winter Games - Olympics history and Prometheus unhinged – on the varied mythology, we considered the Prometheus myth, how it pertains to the Olympics and why it is centered in Sochi.
It is great to not have to guess, wonder, speculate, theorize, etc. but to simply quote official sources and let the cow-chips fall where they may.
The official Sochi Olympics website has a page titled The Torch which notes:
The Olympic torch is one of the symbols of the Olympiad.
Everyone knows that the Olympic flame is lit in the city where the Games are held during their opening, and it burns continuously until their end. The tradition of the lighting of the Olympic flame existed also during the time of the ancient Olympic Games! At that time the Olympic flame served as a reminder of Prometheus's feat, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to his people.
As noted in the first article within this series; Prometheus is the Greek satan figure who, against the god Zeus’ will, brought illumination / enlightenment to humanity in the symbolic form of fire.
The official Sochi Olympics also notes the following on the same page cited above:
Olympic torch relay was thought of in ...The third reich. [ellipses in original]
Interestingly, the modern Olympic Movement originally did not use this bright symbol. The tradition of lighting the torch was revived only in 1928 and has been preserved up until now. During the Olympic Games of 1936, which took place in Berlin, the Olympic Torch Relay was conducted for the first time. Notably, the main ideologist of the Third Reich, Joseph Goebbels, proposed it. That year more than 3,000 runners participated in the delivery of the torch from Olympia to Berlin.”
Thus, the Nazis, who were premised upon occultism, personified, as it were, the illumination / enlightenment of Prometheus via the torch symbolism.

The Sochi Olympics site also have a page about the official Sochi Olympics coin, “Sochi 2014 Coin Program Set to Immortalize the Olympic Stadiums in silver”:
The Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee, in conjunction with the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Goznak and Sberbank of Russia, have announced the final two series of coins dedicated to the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games of 2014 in Sochi…The ‘Sochi 2014’ Coin Program is going to be one of the biggest in the history of the Olympic Movement…

Notes to the editor
The Sochi 2014 Coin program is continuing an age-old tradition: the minting of coins dedicated to the Olympic Games. The first ancient Olympic coin dates from between 510 and 500 B.C. The first contemporary Olympic coin was minted for the 1952 Games in Helsinki.”
The Russia coin features imagery which is commonly used within Russian logos and Freemasonry: a two headed eagle.
The Mascot called Ray of Light is a takeoff from the goddess Hecate, the Colossus of Rhodes / Helios, Mithras mysteries sixth initiation panel, the Statue of Liberty, etc. all of which feature a crown of light rays.
In fact, from the official page http://torchrelay.sochi2014.com/en/our-torch site you can view the coins, etc. at a site the URL for which is http://talisman.sochi2014.com yet, once you click on the talisman link the URL changes.
