It wasn't the most auspicious start to the Olympic games.

Rio officials used bolt cutters to cut their way into a soccer stadium after Olympic organizers reportedly lost the keys.

A BBC reporter Julia Carneiro captured the moment on video, tweeting that firemen had to force open the lock to the east gate of Maracana Stadium.

Olympic women's soccer kicked off on Wednesday, two days before the opening ceremony.

Carneiro tweeted that fans waiting hours to get into the Sweden-South Africa match were eventually redirected to another gate.

Meanwhile, the U.S. team defeated New Zealand 2-0.
