The track at “Laura” is great, really interesting, the entire event is right before the spectators' eyes. So much is being done now that even if there were some issues, they are all dealt with, the organizers meet with us often, they ask how they can make it better. The organization is no worse, and even better, than the organization at any international competitions.
It is a big honor for me to become an Ambassador of Russia’s first ever Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games on this remarkable day. It is very important that in 2014, Sochi will host not only the Olympic, but also the Paralympic Winter Games. All sports venues and infrastructure will be designed to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities and Sochi itself will become a city of equality.
