Tomorrow, February 7th, the XXII Olympic Winter Games will commence with the Games Opening Ceremony in Sochi, Russian Federation. It is interesting to learn that this Olympic Games will be the first Olympics in the Russian Federation since the breakup of the USSR in 1991. The USSR hosted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.
