Sochi Olympics – not a total boondoggle!

Maybe this news will entice other countries to bid on the 2022 Games: FasterSkier.com — Sochi Can’t Make Money? Who Says? OC Posts $261 Million Profit.

Sure, that money didn’t include all the infrastructure costs, government operational costs or cash that just disappeared into the mountains somewhere, but at least there’s something to show for it.

So what do you say, Oslo? Imagine how much money you can make with most of the infrastructure already in place!

  1. That article has to be a joke. I mean, I’m sure Putin’s household and all of his cronies all “posted a profit” after Sochi too. Doesn’t mean the Games were a financial success by any stretch.
