The final stage of preparation for the Winter Olympic Games 2018 will be held in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and Vladivostok

The final stage of preparation for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea will be held in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and Vladivostok. As reported by "R-Sport" agency, this was announced by the Deputy Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation Yuri Nagornykh. By order of the Minister of Sports of the Russian Federation Vitaly Mutko, he headed the headquarters of preparations for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

“Part of the final stage of preparation for the 2018 Olympics will most likely take place in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, part in Vladivostok,” Nagornykh told the R-Sport agency. - Perhaps we will use other bases as well. We will try in 2017, when test competitions will be held in Korea, to simulate this final stage of preparation and to approach 2018 consciously ”.

"Of course, the specifics associated with the Olympic Games in Korea are serious, there will be other (compared to Sochi-2014) flights and acclimatization, adaptation periods. But I think that the team must cope with this task," added the Deputy Minister of Sports.
