In “way down the road” news.

The Olympic committee announced yesterday that Sochi, a Black Sea ski resort in Russia, will host the 2014 Winter Olympics. Sochi beat out Pyeongchang, South Korea in the final vote while Salzburg, Austria lost out in the first round between the final three competitors.

This marks the first time that the games have been awarded to the second biggest nation in the world. Moscow had hosted the summer games in 1980 which was overshadowed by the U.S. boycott. It’s pretty safe to say this sort of thing won’t be a problem this time around but hey, it is seven years down the road.
