The Olympics In Sochi 9

In 2014 Sochi is going to host the Olympic Games, which Russian people are very happy about, because it will enhance the prestige of the country and in Russia they will have a new world-class touristic city. Some people don't believe that builders will be able to finish their projects in time but after seeing what they've already done, no doubt will be left.

In the picture: Stadium 'Fisht' construction. The stadium was named after Mount Fisht which means 'white head' (the glacier on top).

Some statistics:

- About 3 billion viewers are going to watch the Olympics on TV.

- About 25 thousand volunteers are going to work in Sochi during the event.

- 5500 out of 80 countries are going to participate.

- For 17 days the attention of the people is going to be arrested by the Games.

On the whole, they plan to build 206 buildings by 2014 and just 30 of them are sports objects. The 176 which remain are connected to the city infrastructure and tourism, and are going to turn Sochi into a garden-city.

    “Over 50 thousand builders work in Sochi and almost none of them speaks Russian.”

    Where did they come from??

    This is winter Olympics. The summer Olympics of 1980 in Moscow were boycotted by a bunch of countries that decided to play childish instead of play the games. I hope these games go well and nobody uses it as a venue to make a silly point.

    I saw the original post from Sergey’s Dolya blog. He didn’t mention those workers didn’t speak Russian. This repost is speculating with the facts and is lying.

    The countryside is absolutely beautiful and the facilities are spectacular. Wish I could attend the Olympics there. I can’t, so I will be watching on TV.

    It’s a BS lie.

  6. ayaa says:

    Great, I was going to be among the security for this event. But considering that not even the workers speak Russian, I’m having second thoughts.

    …and I currently make some software for the new trains in sochi :)

    I am not sure whether this bring any good to local peoples, except, too many peoples for few days which will make this beautiful country side dirty, lots of city gangs operating and supplying too many prostitutes, drugs and what not to get profit.
    Too much human trafficking…lots of underage girls from poor neighboring countries like Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania.
    Overall this wont be any good for local of Sochi but for biggies in Moscow.

      Bore, bore, bore and stereotypes. Could anyone just at least assume Russia gets better instead of the accusations and pouring the dirt on Russia all the time? Nah, many people here should admit they would be happy to see Russia dead, they simply mask the hatred toward Russian people with political agenda, freedom and democracy cliche, but really wanting all Russia and russian culture to disappear from the maps and history.

    When we hosted the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, it was a burden on the taxpayers and the venue lost money. The same could happen in Sochi. Russia hosting the World Cup Football this decade is a much better event to host. Every country that has hosted it has benefited from its economic spin-offs.
