A cold legacy...

It's not long (relatively speaking) to the next Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
These are going to be held in Sochi.
Do you know where that is without looking at a map ? Take a look now if you don't... go on...
Oh, it's there is it ?

This Guardian article provides some background on the preparations for the Olympics, and various issues, including the rising cost of the games.

Now that the London 2012 games are over, you may be looking around for a sporting event to focus on. The Winter Games will enable a range of contexts to be covered.

There have been a few issues apparently, and one of the main issues is that this area has a small population and does not have a precedent of hosting anything on this scale.
There's also the small matter of the fact that it might be good to have some snow around for the winter Olympics... just in case they're apparently going to keep some of this year's....

Footnote: usually I'd put an image or something on the post, but the Olympics logos are all protected by copyright and even the GA didn't get permission to use one....
Perhaps you can get students creating their own logos, and then you can use one of those in any relevant blog posts...

More to come as the Games get nearer...
