Every athlete has this dream to be at the Olympic Games. Every minute and hour they spent practicing four years long is because they want to be at the Games. In the last weeks there were a lot reports of security threats in Sotshi, Russia where the Winter Olympic Games will take place.
Police officer reported to the Los Angeles Times: “We are aware of reports of potential threats that may occur during the Olympic Games, including the media accounts we’ve seen of female suicide bombers and a video posted online claiming responsibility for the tragic bombings in Volgograd, that also promised more attacks during the Sochi Games.”
Athletes from all over the world are worried about the saftey of the games. They dont’t know if it is too risky to take their family and friends to Sotshi. The participens are not supposted to have this kind of problems in their mind before they are travelling to the Winter Games.
The russian police gave out warnings about a female suicide bomber which might be in Sochi. Videos are going around the world and people are scared. Last month, 34 people got killed in an attack of Islamic separatist group in Volgograd, which is close to Sochi. The Winter Games are not safe anymore.
The U.S. is prepared to evacuate cititzens from Sochi at the games in case it should come to an attack said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. The U.S. is planning to provide additional evacuation and medical care.
