I want to note that the largest variety of countries and flags of participants is in the competitions in alpine skiing and ski jumping, which will be held in Mezhdurechensk. I think we will witness a holiday of friendship and sports, and the legacy that will remain after the Games in the form of trained personnel and excellent sports facilities will continue to serve to ensure that Mezhdurechensk becomes the capital of ski jumping in Russia. Dear friends, fire has always been a sacred symbol for all people, fire unites people, fire warms us, so the Fire Relay is, first of all, a unifying event that tells about the history of the Games.
