2014 Sochi Winter Olympics Preview

February 6, 2014 Front Page, Sports 1 Comment

sochi The Olympics are one of the big sporting events that transcends both politics and sports, and this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia are no different. 98 events will take place in 15 different sport disciplines, and the opening ceremony will take place on Friday, February 7th with the closing ceremonies on Sunday, February 23rd. If you’re looking to catch some of the action, the Olympics will be broadcast here in America on the NBC networks (for full television listings click here). The United States are in prime position to win the most medals in this year’s Olympics. The U.S. was first in total metals during the 2010 Winter Olympics with 37 total. We were 2nd in overall gold with 10, Canada had the most with 14.

There is a lot of controversy and concerns with this year’s Olympics. Winters are mild in Sochi, as it is a subtropical climate on the Black Sea and is located in Russia’s warmest region. Snow shouldn’t be an issue; Russia actually brought in snow-making equipment and hired an expert from Finland to help store (which they’ve been doing for a while now) and create snow if it is needed. Sochi, Russia is Russian President Vladimir Putin’s favorite vacation spot, which is the reason it was picked. There are also concerns that a terrorist attack could happen, even though Russia has said they have more than enough security and everything will be fine. Americans, however, aren’t convinced. A recent poll shows 57% think a terrorist attack is likely and authorities and lawmakers have warned Americans to be on watch.  The U.S. State Department has even warned for American athletes to not wear their uniform or American colors outside of the secured area. The games are also way over budget, reportedly costing $5o billion dollars, which would make it the most expensive games of all-time and more expensive than all previous Winter Olympics combined. There are also rumors of organized crime, corruption and kickbacks to Putin and his friends.
