    The Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will not take place until Friday, but the Games’ soccer tournament began Wednesday, partly because of the large number of events scheduled to take place at the city’s Olympic Stadium. It’s probably a good thing there was something of a trial run, because when officials went to open a main gate before Wednesday’s action, they discovered a bit of a problem: They had misplaced the key.

    Security personnel had to find bolt cutters and break the lock before media members and others could access the stadium’s mixed area through the gate. That came after some confusion, as reported by the BBC’s Julia Carneiro, over which entrance people were supposed to use.

    There you go, a new tradition.

    Instead of Ribbon cutting, now we have Bolt/Lock cutting ceremonies.
