YAROSLAVL, October 19 (Itar-Tass) - The unique mobile pavilion, Russia Olympic Team House, has opened doors in Yaroslav on the day of the Olympic Torch Relay.
About 10,000 people are able to visit the sportive house, organisers said.
The exposition talks about the winter sports, which are included in the XXII winter Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi, as well as about athels and coaches, the organisers said.
“Our task is to inform Russian residents about the winter sports in which Russian athletes will take part. Unfortunately, most Russians only support hockey-players, skiers or biathletes, and such sports as short-track or snowboard, freestyle are ignored. Many people don’t know Russian athletes and coaches. The pavilion can make corrections,” one of the leaders of the project, “One country - One Team”, Anastasia Grigoryeva, told Itar-Tass.
“Frankly speaking, we don’t wait for such interest in our project. People have come since the morning,” she said.
The Russian Olympic Team House is being realised within the federal support programme, “One Country - One Team”. The programme is being prepared by the Russian Olympic Committee.
