OTTAWA, February 11, 5:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Canadian ice hockey player PK Subban believes that the organizers of the 22 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi deserve credit for the work they have done.
He said it on February 10 upon arrival in Sochi.
Subban said was pleased by what he had seen on the Olympic village, as everything there was quite different from what the Canadian media had been writing about.
The rooms the Canadian hockey players were accommodated in were quite nice, he said.
Subban said he thought the Russian organizers deserved credit because they had done everything in their power to enable the athletes to feel comfortable during the competitions.
He also said he had no doubts that the athletes’ security and safety would be ensured at the highest level and the concerns that had been raised by the media were blown of out proportion.
Subban, a defenseman of the Montreal Canadians club said he was looking forward to the hockey tournament with much anxiety and he hoped to play still better upon return to Montreal after the Sochi Games.
His parents, two sisters and their three children have come to Sochi to support him.
For Subban, the Sochi Olympic Games are first ones in his career.
