The opening ceremony of the Winter Games taking place in Sochi Russia today--but another ceremony taking place closer to home. The Presbyterian Homes holding an Olympics for the seniors living there. The event complete with a torch lighting and presentation of the flags. Seniors taking part in several modified Olympic games and even winning medals. "The middle of winter is sort of a dull time and we really wanted to rev up the Olympics but we thought we should do our own Olympics," said Jane Devecis, activities coordinator. "You sit around all the time so this is a good break and it's so much fun, the people," said Maurice Penet, a resident at the home. Eyewitness News will continue to track Remsen's Olympic contender, Erin Hamlin--and have daily exclusive winter games coverage.
