TBILISI, January 16 /ITAR-TASS/. Georgian Prime Minister Irakliy Garibashvili confirmed on Thursday that Georgian athletes would take part in the Olympic Games in Sochi.

A session of the Georgian Olympic Committee held in May last year unanimously voted for Georgia’s participation in the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. Leri Khabelov, the president of the Georgian Olympic Committee, then said that the decision had been passed on the basis of the Olympic Charter and proceeding from the unity of the interests of Georgian sport and the International Olympic movement.
The Georgian delegation will comprise four athletes who have got a license to participate in the Olympic Games, their coaches as well as several Georgian journalists to cover the games.
