SOCHI, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Special windows at booking offices for disabled people in wheelchairs have been designed for Sochi’s Olympic Park, Winter Olympics volunteers told Itar-Tass on Monday, saying these openings were set lower for better access.
So far, not many people in wheelchairs could be seen, they said. “Of course, we are expecting the main flow during the Paralympic Games,” volunteer Olga Gomzyakova added. “The experience has shown that our guests find it convenient - they are pleased, which is the main thing,” she added.
Tickets for curling are in biggest demand on Monday. Prices were affordable, Olga said, adding they were between 600 roubles (less than 20 US dollars) and 3,000 roubles. “The queue is unending. But it moves rather quickly, so there is no reason to worry,” the volunteer added.
