Sochi to host 2014 Winter Olympics

Yesterday the IOC selected Sochi Russia as the host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics. This will be only the second time the Olympics have been held in Russia, the first being the 1980 Summer games in Moscow. With such a great legacy in the Winter Games it's nice to see them win the bid and be able to host the Winter Games in their home country for the first time. For those who don't know where Sochi Russia is, I didn't before now, I marked it on this map.
