Athletes from 80 countries competing in 15 different sports for 17 days, Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, is only a few days away. You might think that Russia is too cold of a place to enjoy the Olympics. But don’t worry. Historically, Sochi has an average winter temperature in the range of 8-10 °С along the coast, so it is actually projected to be relatively warm over in Sochi. What makes this year’s Olympic Winter Games even more heated is that Samsung will be there as the Worldwide Olympic Partner in the Wireless Communications Equipment category. Here are 4 random things about Samsung and Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
