Maria Sharapova brought the torch into Fisht Olympic Stadium at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony.
Not only was bringing the torch in a magical moment for Sharapova because she's from Russia...
... but she also grew up in Sochi, hitting her first tennis ball at Riviera Park in the city.
Sharapova has had two other big Olympic moments, both at the Summer Olympics in London two years ago.
In London, she was the first female flag bearer for Russia at the Olympics opening ceremony.
That summer she also went on to win the silver medal at the Olympic Tennis Event, held at Wimbledon.
Sharapova was joined by fellow Russians Alina Kabaeva, Alexander Karelin and Yelena Isinbayeva.
Sharapova is working at these Winter Olympics as an on-air correspondent for the NBC network.
