Sport in schools
The Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014 promoted a healthy lifestyle among children and encouraged the practice of physical activity.
The Organising Committee worked with schools to introduce one additional hour of sports practice for children each week. As a result, schools began to offer children three hours of physical activity per week, starting in 2011.
In 2016, 42.6 per cent of Sochi citizens participated in sports activities on a regular basis, 35.7 per cent more than before the Games.
