Sochi Tests Completed

On 17 February 2013, a significant Olympic Winter Games Test Event – the final stage of the FIBT Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup – successfully delivered by Sochi 2014 concluded at the Sliding Centre ‘Sanki’ in Sochi.

Over 65 Sochi 2014 Organising Committee staff members welcomed all the guests and competitors in partnership with the International Bobsleigh and Tobogganing Federation (FIBT) and the national sports federations. More than 200 competitors from 25 countries were able to test out the venue, which is going to host the Olympic bobsleigh, skeleton and luge events in 2014.

The final stage of the FIBT Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup 2012/13 was the third international Test Event to be held at Sanki by the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee, following the International Training Weeks in luge (in November 2012) and in bobsleigh and skeleton (earlier in February 2013).

On 19 February, the final stage of the Luge World Cup got underway at Sanki, which was the last of the international Test Events to be held there in the current winter season.

The Test Events in bobsleigh and skeleton were held with support from two Sochi 2014 Partners, Coca-Cola and Ingosstrakh.
