SOCHI, March 13, /ITAR-TASS/. One of the main tasks for volunteers at the Paralympics in Sochi is to stretch out a helping hand to guests and athletes, volunteer Dmitry Novikov told a news conference at the Main Media Center on Thursday.
“Of course, the work at the Paralympic Games differs from that at the Olympics,” he said. “This requires additional responsibility from volunteers. Kindness and wish to help are especially important. Together with our team we make great efforts for the Olympic facilities to be maximally safe and barrier-free.”
“In my opinion, the common thing in the Olympic and Paralympic Games is equal opportunities,” Novikov said, adding that he was pleasantly surprised to see much more spectators at all competitions than it had been expected. “These are equal opportunities for athletes, volunteers and spectators. Spectators may visit those competitions they want to. The accessible environment has ensured equality at the Olympic Games and continues to do this at the Paralympics.”
“The Paralympic Games teach us to never give up and demonstrate that in reality restrictions exist only in our minds,” Novikov said.
