The Sochi Winter Olympics are just days away, kicking off this Friday, February 7th in Russia! The Olympics are often the most watched events of the year as they air on televisions across the entire world as natives tune in to support their country and athletic competitors. Each time a new Olympics airs on television, the host city tried to out-do the last Olympics by adding more pyrotechnics, dancers, singers and animation. But this year’s interesting facts and statistics in Sochi, Russia are staggering compared to the last few…

  1. Russia has blasted the Olympic torch into the space making them the first country to ever take the torch to the cosmic level
  2. There have been three deadly bombings in Volgograd in the last three months…the most amount of attacks and bombings this close to the Olympics ever – Security has also been highly boosted
