LONDON, July 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has visited the Athletes’ Village where athletes live.
Medvedev, who is head of the Russian delegation, arrived at the Athletes’ Village after a volleyball match between Russia and Britain ended. “The game was excellent. I don’t want to trump up anyone. But if we play in such way further, we have good prospects,” the Russian prime minister said.
In his view, Russian volleyball players had to do their best to beat the British team. Medvedev recognised that the social networks “were full of comments”. “The main thing is that we won. We will support our team and you should muster all strength,” Medvedev said.
He asked if athletes watched the opening ceremony. “I’ve said today the ceremony was purely British one,” he noted. “We need our own ceremony. It will be no worse than London organised. It will be more interesting,” Medvedev said.
In his words, “I showed interest in how London organised the Olympic Games... It is rather difficult to organise everything. We will hope for a success.”
The visit to the Athletes’ Village was Medvedev’s last point of his agenda.
“In recent times anything has been done for sports. Of course, this is not London, but this is not the Soviet Union,” he stressed.
The Russian prime minister wished the success to athletes. Addressing coaches, Medvedev said: “Keep all up.”
