The 2014 Sochi Olympics was thought to be a threatening atmosphere for the fans, athletes, and coaches but after the opening ceremony came to an end, the allegations were quickly halted.
The opening ceremonies went off with a blast embracing elegance and beauty, besides when a set of five snowflakes were supposed to transform into the Olympic rings, only four of them did.
The safety of the athletes competing in the Olympics range from US, Russian, and other country authorities to two US naval ships charging into the Black Sea. Only one serious eye-grabbing threat coming from a terrorist group based in Russia Imarat Kavkaz.
In the competition side at the Olympics Germany leads the gold medal count with eight, and Norway coming in a close second at seven. As for the lead in total medal count a tie has happened between the United States and Netherlands at 20, while Russia sits in tight at second with 19. The US has six gold medalists, 4 silver, and 10 bronze looking to add more after the conclusion of the games in Sochi.
Two of those hopefuls are the Men and Women’s US hockey teams, both playing with something to prove after last year’s results.
The women’s team, reliving last year’s final against Canada, hoping to take home the gold instead of silver. As for the men’s team they find themselves sitting nicely in a quarterfinal match up against the Czech Republic. The men’s team found themselves unbeaten after pool play before a sketchy overtime win against Russia that went to eight shots.
Meryl Davis and Charlie White landed gold and bronze for the US in the figure skating competitions, while Jamie Anderson won the first ever gold medal for the inaugural women’s slopestyle event. A young buck competing in his first Olympics Sage Kotsenburg out of the US took home gold in the men’s slopestyle. Stay tuned in to all the Olympic coverage with www.sochi2014.com.
