I’m really excited to become a Sochi 2014 Ambassador for the first Winter Olympic Games in the history of Russia. These Games will bring an enormous number of positive changes to our country as well as to Sochi, and will inspire youngsters to maintain a healthy lifestyle. As a coach I know how important it is to create a new generation of Champions. And it would be simply impossible without the Olympic Games. Especially since the climate in our country is inclement, it snows for almost six months, so it would be great if in 2014 thousands of children chose winter sports as their future career perhaps.
