Overview

In July 2007 the IOC chose Sochi, Russia to host the 2014 Olympic Winter Games over Pyeongchang, Korea and the seemingly safe choice of Salzburg, Austria. It was a highly unusual choice as Sochi, in southern Russia on the Black Sea, was a summer resort, and had no winter sports facilities at the time of the bid, but Russian President Vladimir Putin made an impassioned plea to the IOC and he would come to dominate the 2014 Winter Olympics as had no non-athlete since Adolf Hitler at 1936 Berlin.
