Sochi 2014: Politicisation of European Sport


South Ossetia has been in conflict with the state of Georgia since just before the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s. The dispute is essentially based on South Ossetia’s wish for independence; a wish supported by The Russian Federation. Despite great tension and armed conflict between Georgia and Sochi, Russia still managed to emerge victorious in the competition to win the right to host the Sochi 2014 Winter Games.
