Can Sochi Get it Done?

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

The vision of the Winter 2014 Olympic games held in Sochi, Russia is set high. It states that

 “highly innovative Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, that will express the spirit of modern Russia and bring with them sustainable, positive change for the whole country.”

This is a big promise to fulfill while preparing for Olympic games. However, with the research done and information given, it seems to me that Sochi will be able to deliver on their promises.

This video shows a man speaking on behalf of an organizing committee for the 2014 games. He stresses that the most important thing is to build things that are environmentally friendly while still getting the job done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nAG7-nj9bQ . Along with building green, some other sustainable features they plan to achieve are healthy lifestyles, modern technologies, economic prosperity and sustainable development management systems.

If you look at the website, it shows that every thing they are doing that is sustainable is going to help them in the future. For example, they believe that opportunities created by the Olympic project will ensure them long term sustainable development and prosperity of Sochi. It will also create more jobs and opportunity for professional sports.

Things similar to promoting healthy living within Sochi will make sure Sochi is around for a while with healthy individuals. According to the checklist there are many ways planned to promote a healthy lifestyle.

There are nine different ways of how Sochi is going to create sustainable development for the 2014 winter Olympics. In each of the nine ways, there are specific steps and direction on what is going to happen in order to achieve them. If they were not serious about these, they would’t have come up with a plan to conquer them. This is the future of their life and to pass up an opportunity that is a once in a lifetime chance would be failure. I am confident and do believe that Sochi will get everything they plan on getting done, done before the games begin. Promise = Delivery.
