SOCHI, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Many speed skaters are happy to ride bikes in the Mountain Olympic Village, Mayor of the Mountain Olympic Village Svetlana Zhurova told a news conference in the Russian Olympic city on Tuesday.
“I have not heard criticizing remarks from athletes,” the Olympic speed skating champion in Italy's Turin in 2006 told the news conference. “We have conducted a poll among representatives of different countries. As a speed skater, I was excited that many fellows ride bikes around the Olympic Village. It is very convenient and pleasant for representatives of this kind of sport. At previous Olympics there was strict control, people had to pass security at each facility and carry bikes themselves. It is easier here, I hear exciting responses from speed skaters with pleasure,” she said.
Zhurova also noted that athletes accommodated at the Mountain Olympic Village use library services frequently. “We deny information in the Mountain Olympic Village that athletes read little. I know that the library is highly popular and books already began to disappear. So, athletes take them away to read to the very end. This is very pleasant,” the Olympic champion said.
