2014 Sochi Games
The 2014 Winter Olympic Games officially open Friday in Sochi, Russia, overshadowed by some Olympic-sized problems.
The Homeland Security Department is banning all liquids from carry-on bags on non-stop flights from the U.S. to Russia, while terrorism remains a concern at the games. Host nation Russia has been condemned by LGBT activists for its “gay propaganda” law. Journalists arriving to cover the Olympics arrived to find unfinished hotel rooms without doorknobs, missing manhole covers, and signs asking that toilet paper be put in a trash bin instead of being flushed.
As Team USA gears up for the biggest sporting events of their lives in Sochi, they need some motivation to push themselves in ways they never have before.
