OFFICIAL LEAVES RUSSIA: In a separate piece, R-SPORT reported an official criticized by President Vladimir Putin for the mismanagement of Sochi Olympic facilities "has left Russia after prosecutors initiated a probe of his firm." Akhmed Bilalov "was publicly censured by Putin earlier this month over delays and cost overruns during his time in charge of the Sochi ski jump complex." Bilalov has left his Sochi 2014 role and "has since resigned as vice-president of the Russian Olympic Committee" (R-SPORT, 3/6).
