Buildings aren’t the only bad thing in Sochi. There is also the weather: a high of 64 this week. That’s definitely warm enough to melt snow. When the high in a town having the winter Olympics is warmer than it is in Myrtle Beach, you know you'll have problems.
Besides all of the problems, Sochi is doing a good job with handling the new sports such as ski slopestyle and snowboard slopestyle where American Sage Kotsenburg won gold.
The medal count as of Sunday is Germany in the lead with 7 gold and Norway and The Netherlands tied for second with 5 gold.
So far this is the worst team USA has done in the winter Olympics since 1988 with just 4 gold medals.
