The Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games were held in Sochi in 2014.

Also, the press center was equipped with a cafe, Help Desk, offices for the team of Press and Photo Operations, Olympic News and all the necessary services: heating, electricity, high-speed Internet, equipment, speech-to-speech translation and others.
The Mix Zone was located behind the finish line and was coordinated by the supervisor and volunteers.
