Online sale of Sochi Olympics tickets kicks off

Feb 12 2013, 1:28am CST | by

Moscow, Feb 12 (IANS) Online ticket sales for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics have started. The tickets are being sold online via an agency which also operates in the US, Canada, Brazil, Australia and several European countries.

Moscow, Feb 12 — Online ticket sales for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics have started. The tickets are being sold online via an agency which also operates in the US, Canada, Brazil, Australia and several European countries.

According to the official online seller, tickets are priced from 500 rubles (about $16) for the ice hockey group games and up to 50,000 rubles (over $1,600) for the opening ceremony, reports Xinhua.

The majority of the tickets available through the Russian website have been sold out in the first few hours after the official start of the sales Feb 7, the same day that Russia started a countdown for the 22nd Winter Olympic Games.

The brisk sell-out of the tickets raised suspicions among local observers that the Olympics passes could have been grabbed by organised ticketing squatters who hope to resell them later, despite severe fines (over $33,000) the Russian government has introduced for the touts.

The first Winter Olympic Games held in Russia are to take place from Feb 7 to Feb 23, 2014, in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi. The games will feature 98 medal events, 12 more than the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.

Gilles & Poirier rebound from heartbreaking season

KELOWNA, B.C. — When Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier didn’t make Canada’s team for the Sochi Olympics, the ice dancers put themselves on autopilot. It was the low point on a roller-coaster season of crazy highs and heartbreaking lows. "We really had to keep moving forward, so we had to go home, take it one day at a time really, because we couldn’t really dwell on: ‘Well, that was it,"’ Gilles said. "We had to turn our minds off for a little bit." Gilles, from Toronto, ...
