Team Russia

russia_Team Russia athletes are already feeling the pressure for the 2014 Sochi Games. At the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, the Russian national team consisted of 177 athletes, but the outcome was the worst ever in the countries history. Preparation and training is already underway, as the team spends the next four years working to improve their freestyle, short track, snowboard, curling, and ski jump.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev put pressure on senior sports officials to resign from their posts, considering the team took home only three golds, five silvers, and seven bronzes in 2010. Since then, Leonid Tyagachyov resigned from his position as Russia’s Olympic Committee head.

Russia will take 215 athletes to compete in 86 different competitions at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. Hopes are high for Team Russia as they work towards their history in Olympic golds.
