First, I want to congratulate Russia on the impressive results it achieved in the course of the competition. These indicate great promise for the Olympic Games. Next year we can expect to see a huge number of Russian fans in the stands in the "Adler-Arena". Second, this World Championship has shown us that the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee has taken a highly professional approach in its preparations for the Games. I am confident that we will be witness to highly successful Olympic Games. The organizers have done an excellent job here.
