RIGA, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Latvian President Andris Berzins will visit an opening ceremony of the winter Olympic Games in Sochi and support the Latvian team during luge and biathlon competitions, the presidential press service reported on Thursday.
The Latvian president will be on a visit to Sochi on February 6-10, the press service said.
Berzins will also take part in a dinner, which will be organised by International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, and in a reception, which will be organised by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The head of state will visit the Athletes’ Village to meet the Latvian team and take part in opening the House of Latvia.
The Latvian premier and the minister of education and science are also invited to take part in the Olympic Games. Due to the fact that a new government was approved in Latvia on January 22 it was unclear who would go to Sochi.
Latvia will be represented by 58 athletes, who will compete in nine sports - biathlon, bobsleigh, alpine skiing, speed skating, skis, skeleton, luge, ice-hockey and short track. The delegation will involve 28 people (coaches and service staff).
