The Sochi Column - Issue 3

The Sochi Column

Issue three has dropped on our doorsteps as the hyperactive local delivery boy throws it from the town over. But what has been happening in the world of Sochi 2014 you ask? Well… not a lot it seems.
That’s a bit of a lie. The main news that has come out of Russia is the confirmed news of the competition schedule! We officially know when there will be skiing, snowboarding, medals and a whole lot of cheering.

Before I being to give you the schedule for the skiing and snowboarding, I thought I would show you the resort it’s being held in. Remember that this is an official picture of the resort, not something that’s been taken out of a cartoon version of The Sims.

Oh and if you fancied reading some stats about it then this is your lucky day.
