SOCHI, February 15, 11:15 /ITAR-TASS/. Figure skater Michael Christian Martinez from the Philippines has not won medals at the Sochi Olympic Games, and he had low chances, but he will always remember not only his appearance on the ice in the Iceberg Palace in Sochi, but also bright impressions of his presence in the Olympic capital.
He said that when he opened the window in his room in the Olympic athletes' village he saw the sea and the stadiums and felt light wind. The atmosphere here is so peaceful and relaxing, the American newspaper Orange County Register cites the 17-year-old athlete as saying. "It is like paradise," he said about the Olympic village.
