XX Olympic Winter Games start today in Torino, Italy.

Today at 8pm (Torino time) the Opening Ceremonies of XX Olympic Winter Games start at the Stadio Olimpico in Torino, Italy. There are 84 sets of medals, and some presume that about one tenth of the golden reserve may go to Russian team.
      Russian Olympic Committee counts on winning the skiing competitions, biathlon, and figure skating. Russia is traditionally considered the leader in these Winter sports, so experts expect Russia to gather about 17 medals in these categories. Russian Olympic Committee predicts that Russia will win about 25 medals in total, which of course no one can call "high expectations", so we predict the worst and hope for the best.
