The fact that you have had to ask this question proves that you know nothing at all about what you supposedly are an expert on.

Do I really have to spell it out for you?

Sochi didn't host the Universiade in the 1990's because it didn't have the facilities to host such an event. The Olympics are of a grander scale, and has spurred development.

The Universiade will take advantage of the legacy left from the 2014 Games.

In my opinion, you act like you are the meanest user on SSC. I am not an expert on jack.

Well you could stay in your hotel room all day and make up lists. That would be so awesome.

Double check your schedules though mate- be careful that you dont miss the 2014 federal election. You may have to fly to Darwin for the day just to vote.

I'm sure Rogge won't have an issue lending him one of the IOC's private jets .

Teehee. Lowry will be IOC president in about 3 weeks going by his current rate of world domination.

Seriously this bloke is just so mental its bordering on the sublime! He's destroyed any credibility the Stadiums and Sports Arenas subforum might have had. However it would be sad to see him get banned. Ive had so many lulz reading his posts. And whats made it even better he posted in our OzScrapers, Id love for him to visit the skybar....

And to keep it on topic, go Russia, or whatever.

Actually, is there a special plan in place to add domestic flights from Moscow when the Games are due? Don't think many European cities have flights to Sochi at all. How is it going to work?

Sochi Airport is undergoing expansion, and I'm sure we will see more foreign carriers flying into Sochi during the Olympic period, and obviously flights into Moscow and other major Russian cities will increase.

After the Games I'd imagine many of the carriers will withdraw services, but some may stick around due to increased demand coming with Sochi's new found international profile.

Tell you what Matthew, do a bit of research and get together a number of different things to do in Sochi. Then put them all in a poll and we can all vote for them
