Romania's winter Olympic team have already started training in Sochi, Russia, enjoying the excellent conditions provided by the organisers of the XXII Olympic Winter Games, Romania's Olympic Sports Committee (COSR) reports.
'Our hosts in Russia have extended us a great welcome. Accommodation and meals are the best, the sports facilities are impeccable and organisation is impressive,' COSR Secretary General Ioan Dobrescu said in Sochi.
'I do not know why the press is circulating all kinds of false stories. For the time being, the Sochi Olympic Games are the best so far held,' he added.
After the opening ceremony that promises to be grandiose, scheduled for February 7, Romania's first athlete to compete in the first day of the games on Saturday will be Timea Sara in the cross country skiing event. AGERPRES
