McCollough starts things off by talking about the living conditions and the state of the Olympic Village when he arrived in Sochi.

He said, “They created a futuristic sports mecca.”

However, he did note that some things were not ready when people arrived for the first few days of the Winter Games.

McCollough concludes by giving an overview of the story he wrote about Evgeni Malkin’s family and their home city of Magnitogorsk.

He argues that due to Malkin’s upbringing, their will not be a letdown from the Russian hockey team’s early exit.

“He’ll take this type of disappointment and fuel his desire to win in Pittsburgh,” McCollough says.
