Future Olympic Host Working Around the Clock

Sochi, Russia, is set to play host to the Winter Olympics in 2014. Preparations are fast underway, with construction work happening practically around the clock.

"Even though it's more than three years to go before the start of the Winter Olympic Games-2014, the city and the nearby territory is dotted with construction sites. Contractors work day and night, and the frames of some of huge constructions to be commissioned already next year and in 2012 look quite impressive. The region has made an emphasis on Sochi's charm as a Black Sea resort city as well as development of its infrastructure and transport."

Officials predict that construction of Olympic venues will be complete in mid 2012, and that infrastructure works will continue up to the Games opening.
