VILNIUS, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games, which came to a close with a grandiose closing ceremony in Russia’s Sochi on Sunday, made an indelible impression on athletes and members of the Lithuanian delegation, Daina Gudzineviciute, the president of the Lithuanian Olympic Committee said on Monday.
“The Games left a grand impression,” she said. “We were pleasantly surprised to see the highest possible level of organization and popularity of winter sports.”
Gudzineviciute, a former Latvian Olympian and 2000 Summer Olympic gold winner in women’s trap shooting, praised the sports and housing infrastructure constructed for the Sochi Olympics.
“I have never seen such spacious Olympic village and comfortable rooms, where athletes stayed,” she said, adding that in Sochi most of her country’s athletes “achieved their set goals and did their utmost.”
This year Lithuania put nine athletes for the Sochi Games competitions, and it was the largest number in the history of the country’s participation in Winter Olympics. The best result was showed by Agne Sereikaite, who finished in the 16th place in ladies’ 1,500 m short track.
