A look at Sochi ahead of The Olympics

22nd November 2013

The host country of each Winter Olympics has to open their facilities to the rest of the world for two weeks in the Olympic season. So two weeks ago we headed out to Sochi in Russia for two weeks of training. Whether GB finish up with 2 or 3 sliders at The Olympics those sliders will come from the four of us on the GB Squad. So this meant that all four of us trained on the Olympic track. The training went well and the two weeks of training was enjoyable. Now I have to make sure that the next time I am here will be next February for The Olympics.
I did have one interesting incident. I had just finished a training run when still out of breath I had a microphone stuck in my face and I was being interviewed for a Russian TV channel!
