Reporting from Vancouver, Canada – Worldsnowboarding.com offered comprehensive look at the mountain resort of Krasnaya Polyana strange, and Russia, with one seemingly simple denunciation.
The website of the resort only drawback was its size and mild climate, “which means that there are very serious to find a little snow in the least runs until January.”
Wait a minute. . . .
We just did not go through these past two weeks, let alone lead an angry follow-up efforts to redistribute snow to weather the challenge Cypress mountains?
Now, we may go through it all again in the Olympic Games in Sochi, 2014?
You can say Sochi, Russia, and Vancouver, Canada, has a lot in common.
Vancouver is indicated by the rest of Canada as the “Lotus Land”, and Sochi, nicknamed “the Russian Riviera,” the Black Sea resort for the rich and famous.
Then there is the birthplace of hockey pressure. If you think that pressure on the gold medal-winning hockey team Canada was extensive, and I think “strangle” in Russia.
One newspaper headline called Russia 7-3 at the quarter-finals in Canada, “a nightmare in Vancouver.”
Unlike Sochi, Vancouver may boast of preparing in advance of its facilities. When attention turned to Vancouver at the end of 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, all but two of the facilities had been completed.
Construction is under way in Sochi, but organizers do not expect a first test event in Alpine skiing, even after a year from now. There are two sets of competition, which combines coastal playground for the central and ice hockey and ice skating stadiums, and the mountain sports place in Krasnaya Polyana, which will phase inskiing and snowboarding, luge, among other events.
Sochi 2014 CEO Dmitry Chernyshenko said Saturday that his organization brought a group of 150 to monitor the Vancouver Games and close attention to the issues of Cypress Mountain.
“The major milestone is to provide everything [in] two years, two seasons ago to compete in the Games,” he said. “Well in advance. So we’re looking in plenty of time to acquire sites and training of our employees.”
And one for the United States is that the athletes playing in Vancouver years were available in advance, and not too far.
Nordic combined gold medal skier Bill Demong was coming to Canada for training as far back as three years.
“We felt like our home games, which is part of the reason why we do it well,” he said. “It will be a little different [in 2014]. You can not just get a few hours of flying, and go to Sochi.”
Mike Plant, head of mission for the United States team, said that the U.S. Olympic Committee will send the scouts in Sochi this year.
“And start looking at stadiums and geography, the region and start to understand that years ago,” and said: “Even when we have games, we are probably the best team prepared not only because of competition [athletes], but also because of our operations. Combine that with the commitment to The passion and dedication these athletes, you come up with a very strong. “
