Russian PM urges for plans for Sochi venues

February 04, 2014

SOCHI, Russia (AP) Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has urged his government to come up with a plan for the post-Olympic use of Sochi venues.

The Winter Games open in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on Feb.7 and run through Feb. 23. Russia has spent about $51 billion on the Games, making them the most expensive in Olympic history.

Medvedev issued an order published on the government's website, urging the government to present proposals for the post-Olympic use of the venues by the end of the month.

There are five arenas in the Olympic park and two for ice-hockey in this subtropical town. Sochi does not have a history of winter sports and is most known for tennis players including Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Maria Sharapova.
