«Olympic Reporter» in quotes.

Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympic Committee: <

— Yes, there is a real financial crisis in the world now, but it is too early to evaluate its effect and influence on the world of sport. The International Olympic committee has enough of its own finances and reserves, there are also tele- and sponsorship contracts, concluded till year 2012.

Dmitry Kozak, Vice Prime minister of the Russian Federation government:

— None of private companies have rejected their obligations in connection with participation in the «Sochi-2014» project. But if this happens we will substitute these investments with government ones.

Leonid Tyagachev, the president of the Russian Olympic Committee:

— There is no reason for alarm at all, all talks about our ability or disability to make a praiseworthy Olympic event are very strange. But if somebody is ready to secure Sochi, it's their business.

Dmitry Chernyshenko, the head of the «Soch-2014» Organizing Committee:

— Today not only Russia, but the majority of countries in which Olympic games are held, suffer a true staff shortage: in order to satisfy the need in effective sport managers they are being looked for all over the world, and not always can be found.

Georgy Kanuko, the head of the Rostov administration of «Sportloto»:

— Ten years of preparation for the Moscow Olympic Games-80 became a blessing for sports. Despite the fact that the means were distributed with a centralized approach, the regions also got a lot.

Victor Ponedelnik, central forward of the USSR National soccer team:

— We must urgently change the whole system of preparation! This is the way it looks now: many highly qualified coaches moved abroad to work and now they are successfully coaching our competitors there.
