SOCHI, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarusian athletes praise the organisation of the Olympic Games in Sochi, the National Olympic Committee reports.
“The Games are organised on a sweeping scale. There is what to be surprised at and there is what is to look at. Of course, there is what to be amazed by and what is to learn by holding other competitions,” spokeswoman to the Belarusian National Olympic Committee Anastansiya Marinina told Itar-Tass.
Belarusian athletes live in three Olympic villages. Short track skaters live in the coastal cluster. Alpine skiers and freestyle skiers mainly live in the mountain village. Skiers and biathletes live in another mountain village. The main team of biathletes live in the Belarus sanatorium, which is located in the Krasnaya Polyana.
“Our athletes have an opportunity to compare living conditions. No complaints have been given. All athletes are pleased. They enjoy the reception and volunteers’ attitude,” Marinina said.
“Nine Russian assistants help us solve different problems, which are only of technical nature,” she said.
Commenting on security measures, the spokeswoman said, “They are rather serious. Inspection is rather quick and strict. The so-called ‘pure zones’ are organised well.”
Belarusian athletes and members of the delegation “are pleased with biathlete Darya Domracheva’s gold medal. The team is very glad. This is the second gold medal in the history of the Belarusian team at the winter Olympic Games”, Marinina said.
