MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of people fond of winter sport has grown by 1,5 times in Russia since Sochi was proclaimed the 2014 Olympics capital, Russian Minister of Sport Vitaly Mutko declared at a news conference at Itar-Tass.

"Since 2007 when Sochi was declared the 2014 Olympics capital, the number of people going in for winter sport has grown 1,5 times; around 200,000 people have taken to skiing," the minister said.

"I believe the Sochi Olympics will give a serious impetus to the popularization of winter sport in Russia. Our sport schools should be prepared for a big influx of children," the minister said.
