AP Olympic officials defended the use of TV rehearsal footage to cover up a glitch in Sochi's opening ceremony. Friday night's ceremony hit a bump when only four instead of five illuminated floating rings linked up to form the Olympic symbol in the early section of the show. The five were supposed to join together and erupt in fireworks.
