After two weeks of thrilling Olympic action, it's time to put out the flame in the Closing Ceremony. Americans won't be able to catch it live on TV, but it will be streaming online.

SB Nation 2014 Winter Olympic Coverage

It's time to say goodbye. After two weeks of thrilling action and heart-stopping finishes, the 2014 Winter Olympics comes to an end in Sochi with the Closing Ceremony. It starts at 11 a.m. ET and will be streamed live on NBCOlympics.com.

Although this event isn't as rigidly structured as the Opening Ceremony, there are a few traditions to go through. After the Russian flag is raised and the national anthem performed, the athletes march into the stadium in unison, known as the "Parade of Athletes." After that, the Olympic flag gets lowered and carried out of the stadium.

The next few events involve the transition to the next Olympic host, in this case Pyeongchang, South Korea. After the Korean flag is raised alongside Greece, a special Olympic flag gets passed on to the mayor of Pyeongchang, and South Korea gets to put on a little show of its own, as a tease for 2018. Finally, the Olympic flame is extinguished, signaling the end of the Sochi Games. And then we get to do this all over again in Korea in four years.

NBC won't be carrying the ceremony live on television, although they will be streaming it at NBCOlympics.com, starting at 11 a.m.. The network will be showing its tape-delayed version at 8:30 p.m., following the debut of "Nancy and Tanya," a documentary that looks back at the infamous attack on Nancy Kerrigan during the 1994 Games.
