Children support Sochi’s Olympic bid

The Russian resort city of Sochi, one of the three candidate cities competing for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, has recently gained support among the younger generation – children staying at a summer camp near the city.

The children have been organising special games and sports with Russian Olympians attending.

By 2014 many of these children will be in their 20s, and hope to help in organising the Winter Olympics.

They have gathered around 2,000 signatures in support of Sochi's bid to send to the International Olympic Committee.
