Does the success of Russia 2018 negate the problems from Sochi 2014??

Brazil 2014 and the Rio Olympics had similar problems in organization.

I wouldn't even know Russia's World Cup and Winter Olympics were even held in the same country, given the contrast of the two.

A little bit maybe, but not really.  The legacy of Sochi 2014 will always include the resulting doping scandals.  So it will take more than a well run World Cup to erase that stain.
