Visiting Olympic facilities in Sochi

March 9, 2012, Krasnaya Polyana, Sochi

Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin watched test runs at the Olympic sledding and bobsleigh track in Sochi. Silvio Berlusconi also visited the new facility.

Mr Medvedev and Mr Putin also spent time talking with athletes. Members of Russia’s national team said they hoped to see the construction finish as soon as possible so that they can start training. The President also asked about the sled and bobsleigh athletes’ daily living conditions.

A commission from the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation is currently completing its work at the site, following which it will present an evaluation report.
