SOCHI, February 07, 16:23 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian biathlete Yana Romanova has said that Sochi has changed for the better over the past ten years and that the Olympic village has excellent living conditions for athletes.
“I can only compare it to Vancouver where I made a debut at my first Olympics,” the press service of the Russian Biathlon Union quoted Romanova as saying on February 5.
“The conditions in Sochi are luxurious: from food and accommodation to an enormous laundry with dozens of washing machines and a beauty salon,” Romanova went on to say. She added that the existence of a beauty parlor and other things was not so important. “The thing everybody goes out of their way to serve the athletes. I think that everybody, including foreigners, will be pleased,” the biathlete said, adding that many foreign athletes could not stop admiring the beauty of Sochi and its surroundings in the first days.
“You know, I visited Krasnaya Polyana ten years ago when there was nothing there. In May 2003, I was on vacation in Sochi on the seaside and I went to Krasnaya Polyana. It is interesting how everything has changed. At that time I could not imagine that an Olympic stadium would appear here in ten years’ time,” Romanova said.
