Russian resort on the Black Sea that will be the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
"Considering the poor showing Team Russia made at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, they've got their work cut out for them to dominate the scene at Sochi."
Site of the 2014 Winter Olympics; very controversial because the Olympic site area will be built at the site of a massacre of Circassian
people by the Russians on May 21, 1864 and because construction of the Olympic site will cause long-lasting, if not permanent, pollution to the ecology of the area.
The Circassians have proclaimed May 21 as a national day of mourning and are very angry that Sochi is being used as a host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
