The Olympics are a celebratory and joyous experience for all amateur athletes who have worked hard to compete on the world stage. Olympic games are significant to all nations around the world.

It is estimated that some four billion people globally will watch at least part of the Sochi Games before the XXII Olympiad comes to a close.

The State Department warned Americans of the potential for terrorism at the Sochi Olympics. Large-scale public events such as the Olympics are an attractive target for terrorists, thievery and scams.
