Preparations underway for start of 2014 Winter Paralympics

 

`

 SochiRussia — The opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Paralympics are scheduled to take place tomorrow in SochiRussia. Today, Olympic Park in Adler was quiet, with few people moving about it and set-up for food stalls taking place. Most of the entrances to the Park were closed, though the line for accreditation was busy this afternoon. Most of the people working today did not speak English, and were not aware of where venues were to be found.
