LONDON, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. British Prime Minister David Cameron did not come to 2014 Winter Games in Russia’s Sochi because the country’s premiers usually are not attending Winter Olympic events, Cameron’s spokesperson said on Friday.
Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee, earlier said in an interview with BBC that Cameron’s decision against attending the Games in Sochi was a “missed opportunity.”
"Everybody who is here and who is ready to listen and see will know that here are great Games going on for the athletes,” BBC quoted Bach as saying. “I can only invite and say 'come, see and then make your decision.”
Aside from Cameron, a number of other world leaders, including US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, also decided against coming to the 2014 Winter Olympics, which blasted off with an opening ceremony on February 7 and would run until February 23.
