The President of the ROC Alexander Zhukov congratulated the team on the successful organization of the Olympic Winter Games
The President of the Russian Olympic Committee Alexander Zhukov and ROC Responsible Executives congratulated the staff on the successful organization of the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, won by the National team.
“We all marched toward this victory. Each department of the ROC has contributed to the success of the Russian National team in Sochi. Before the Olympic Games many skeptics said that not everything was going smoothly. However, during the first few days of the Games we were able to prove to the world that the whole Russia was preparing for the Home Olympics. We managed to show it not only by the perfect organization, great stadiums and coordinated work of all those involved, but also by the support of our athletes. Every Russian Olympian repeatedly stressed that many outstanding results were achieved through this boundless support. I wish that after the successful work on the way towards Sochi the ROC team would continue working at the same pace”, – said Zhukov.
The XXII Olympic Games have come to an end. The 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro are coming.
