Sochi to host 2014 Winter Olympics

The Russian resort city Sochi will host 2014 Winter Olympic Games, as the head of the International Olympic Committee Jacques Rogge has reported. In the final round Sochi beat Pyeongchang of South Korea by 4 votes with 51 votes going to Russia and 47 to South Korea.
      The city celebrated the victory with grandiose fireworks. The local citizens mark that the victory means that Sochi has reached a European level and will considerably contribute to the Russian prestige on the international arena.
      However, the victory has caused a complex reaction in the western media, according to the German newspaper Der Spiegel. The German press hesitates that the city is able to prepare to Winter Olympics on time.
