SOCHI, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. There are many surprises in store for visitors of the Russian Olympic Committee’s (ROC) Fan House in Sochi, the Black Sea resort host of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, including various prizes for correct answers to questions about different kinds of sport, Aleksey Selivanov, who hosts the entertainment program in the Fan House’s club zone, told Itar-tass on Thursday.

“We ask a wide range of questions and receive correct answers to almost all of them,” he said. “We can see that most people have a really good understanding of sports. Among the questions asked are, for example, how old figure skater Adelina Sotnikova was when she won her first championship in Russia, in which kind of sport you call the captain of a team ‘the skip’, how long the penalty loop in biathlon is, or who the captain of the hockey team at the Sochi Olympics is.”

The Fan House’s club zone attracts many guests. People who have come here from all over the world in hope to see their compatriots’ triumph have an opportunity here to talk to renowned athletes and Olympic champions of previous years, to watch together on a large screen Olympic competitions and to support their national team, as it was during the men’s ice hockey match between Russia and Slovakia.
