Sochi is the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Known for their controversiality surrounding homophobia, stray dogs, historical conspiracies, possibility of terrorism and suspiciously poor conditions for American journalists. Some athletes complain about icey snow, difficult tracks, warm weather etc, while many people are trying to "boycott" the Games, which would mean not watching them.

IMO part:
Russian people shouldn't be blaimed for the poor conditions and closed-mindedness in Sochi, but their politics and media. Focusing our anger on Russia as a whole and complaining what a shithole it is, proves how xenophobic we are and creates unwanted political tension. A sports event should be about athletes and their achievements, not about the place where it takes place.
If the backlash about the XXII Olympic Winter Games is so strong, I can only imagine what it was like in the USA during the 1936 Summer Olympics in Hitler Germany.

George Takei made a petition to move the XXII Olympic Winter Games to another city 6 months before them, although preparations for an Olympic event take years.

The name says everything you need to know about them, they are games. Anybody that tries to tell you the athletes aren't there to play because they are the most skilled athletes in the world at their event doesn't know what they are talking about. No matter how competitive a game can get, no matter what is on the line, and no matter what record is broken, it is always going to be just a game, and nothing more. Good Will Hunting explained it, some people can just play at an instrument, Will could just play at equations, and athletes can just play at their sport. Of course it will require time, effort, training, and practice to play well, the same kind of dedication peole put toward their jobs, but it really is still just playing at the end of the day. Most people in the world don't clock in for a work day at a gym because it's not a work place, it's somewhere people go to practice or train at their talent, not their work.
Talent and work are not the same thing, which is why most people go to work, then they play on their time off if they do at all (sports, other things if they have a talent at anything). The Olympic Games are not leisure in the sense that most people have of leisure, they are not the same thing as vacation, they require more time, energy, effort, and dedication than vacation or leisure, but they are still games, and as long as they are games, the athletes in them are playing. Any time somebody starts calling anything called games or sports something else, or says that athletes or players are not playing, they are doing something else, is missing the point and calling things something other than what they are.

The Olympic games, of all things, are not something to panic over. They're just games, win or lose. Holding nothing sacred but winning is not the point, and you wouldn't panic unless you're someone that holds nothing sacred, because then you'd feel like you had to win.
The uber competitive girl always put the same unrealistic pressure on everybody else that she tried to make it look like people were putting on her, when in reality she had always just been uber competitive about everything, and wanted to turn other people into her. Not everybody thought the Olympic games was a make or break event the way she did.
