(Newser) – Not exactly an auspicious start to the Rio Olympics: Officials couldn't find the keys for one of the Maracana Stadium gates Wednesday, so they had to use bolt cutters to let fans into a soccer game, Fox Sports reports. (As Sports Illustrated notes, competition has already begun for some sports, though the opening ceremonies aren't happening until later Friday.) "What a start! #Rio2016 kicking off with lost key and firemen forcing open lock to east gate of Olympic stadium #oops," tweeted BBC reporter Julia Carneiro Wednesday along with a video of the bolt cutters being used.
