Like a multi-faceted cut sapphire, the “Iceberg” skat-
ing palace shimmers on the Russian Black Sea coast.
The shining blue arena seats 12,000 spectators, who
will be able to watch the short track speed skating and
figure skating events here from February 8 at the 22nd
Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Together with four oth-
er ice rinks and the Olympic stadium, the arena forms
Sochi’s Olympic Park, right on the Black Sea coast. The
snowsports, bobsleigh, and luge competitions will take
place at competition sites around Krasnaya Polyana, a
location in the Caucasus Mountains about 70 kilome-
ters away.
