    A photo taken on a press tour on February 17, 2012 shows the train station in the Russian ski resort of Krasnaya Polyana , some 50 kms from the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, venue of the 2014 Winter Olympics games. Russian government officials have brushed off concerns over corruption and delays to insist the venues hosting the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi will be completed well ahead of schedule. The first Olympic Games to be held in Russia since the boycott-hit Moscow Games in 1980 should herald another step forward on sport's world stage for the former Soviet Union.
