Russian International Olympic University Presents the Book “Sochi Olympic Legacy”
As part of its publishing programme, RIOU launches the book “Sochi’s Olympic Legacy”, which represents the first attempt to explore in detail the unique experience gained during the preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. The book features first-hand accounts of Sochi’s radical transformation given by those who were directly involved in this impressive project, unprecedented for Russia. The contributors include, among others, Russia’s Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergey Donskoy, President of the Russian Olympic Committee Alexander Zhukov, President of the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee Dmitry Chernyshenko, Secretary-General of the Russian Paralympic Committee Mikhail Terentyev, Governor of Krasnodar Region Alexander Tkachev, Sochi Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolay Kasimov, and Olympstroy’s Chief Architect Oleg Kharchenko. Commenting on the publication of the book, RIOU Rector, Professor Lev Belousov said: “Research at RIOU focuses on the investigation and preservation of Sochi’s Olympic legacy. So we thought it necessary to start working in these directions at the early stages of preparation for the Games. We began collecting, consolidating and analysing materials for this book more than a year ago, and this allowed us to create a complete guide to the infrastructural, economic and social changes propelled by the Winter Olympics. The book also gives an overview of the history of the Black Sea coastal region and looks at the prospects of its development post-games.Currently, it is the only popular scientific publication to detail the building of the physical and humanitarian legacy of the Sochi Olympics.”
