Sochi Olympics Combine Sport and Religion

In legends of Greek mythology, an heroic figure, Prometheus, was taken captive and put in chains. There an eagle ravaged his liver. Though it grew back again, it was pecked out once more. This was the penalty from the gods for stealing their fire and handing it out to humans, giving them illumination. Thus Prometheus is symbolic of Satan, or Lucifer, the “light-bringer.” This legend took place on the cliffs of Sochi.
