Ice Charades sent me a link to a very interesting article.
One of the Mayoral Candidates (unfortunately the losing candidate) for the Russian City of Sochi, Boris Nemtsov, wrote an article for the Washington Post detailing the progression of Games preparations in the city.
Trouble is, according to Nemtsov, things are not progressing well.
Check out the article for yourself, but some of the problems include urban displacement, funding, and the fact that Sochi is very near the unstable region in Georgia.
On the Georgia fact, many have been critical of the Russian Federation's successful bid for the Olympics, as can be seen with the picture accompanying this post.
With 5 years to go, Sochi is not on track to host a successful Winter Olympics (gasp!).
Will the IOC have to figure out 'Plan B for 2014?' Stay tuned.
