Sochi Winter Olympics 2014

The 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi begins today with excitement in the air all over the globe. During the course of this extraordinary sporting event why not let share your thoughts about this fantastic sporting event here at PlayHugeLottos.

For the duration of the Olympics, Sochi will take on 75,000 fans, 5,000 athletes, 12,000 journalists and 25,000 volunteers in one of the most interesting geographical areas in the world. 

The ceremonies are the most impressive and memorable events of any Olympic Games. As with every opening ceremony, the involvement of the world’s best athletes, talented artists and the support of spectators will create a truly unforgettable show.

We will once again be in for a spectacular show with the three ceremonies that take place and which are broadcast to billions of viewers all over the world. The Ceremonies will create an unforgettable impression both on their participants and the spectators.
 
One of the Winter Olympics newest sports is Slopestyle boarding which makes its debut this year with a challenging course that is already making headlines.  Ever since the athletes began test runs earlier this week, several have already taken spills. First up was American Shaun White who jammed his wrist and had to bow out of the Olympics altogether. Marika Enne was taken off the course on a stretcher after hitting her head on rail and Torstein Hormgo, from Norway suffered a broken collarbone also losing his opportunity to compete.  

A question that has been on everyone’s mind ever since Russia was awarded the Olympic Games in 2007 is whether Sochi can do it.  Can this quaint resort town transform itself into a world-class city. From what we have seen they have more than proved themselves to the world. Well done Sochi!

In purely sporting terms, the Games will set a number of records: There will be six new events and a record total of 98 gold medals are to be handed out. A record 86 nations are to take part.

If the promise of thrills and spills gets your pulse racing then this Saturday’s $247 million Dollar USA Powerball jackpot is just the adrenalin rush that you are looking for.
