Sports Academy Planned For 2014 Sochi Olympics Hockey Venues

Two hockey arenas for the 2014 Sochi Olympics "will be converted into a children’s winter sports academy after the Games," according to R-SPORT. The plan "stems from a suggestion" made by President Vladimir Putin in April to create a facility at the Olympic Park “so children can live and learn there” after the Feb. 7-23 Olympics. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the All-Russian Childrens' Sport and Health Center would cost 260M rubles ($8M) (R-SPORT, 11/11).
