Now I can not wait, I want to take my Sweety and go see the Winter Olympics in 2014!!!!
Sochi given 2014 Winter Olympics
The Russian resort of Sochi has been chosen to host the 2014 Winter Olympics, beating South Korea’s Pyeongchang.
Sochi secured 51 votes at a meeting of International Olympic Committee (IOC) delegates in Guatemala, beating its South Korean rival by just four votes.
In earlier voting, the third contender, Salzburg in Austria, was eliminated.
The presidents of all three candidate countries had attended the meeting to plead their countries’ cases.
Russian President Vladimir Putin was credited with helping Sochi’s bid, after he addressed delegates in three languages – English, Spanish and French.
It is believed to be the first time the Russian leader has been heard speaking English at a public ceremony.
