25 players and like, 10 officials? Wow. Those must be among the largest teams that are sent to an Olympics-like tournament??

Ice hockey has pretty large teams in general. Its 23 players generally for international tournaments (including the Olympics), plus teams usually bring a few skaters in case there is an injury right before the tournament (sometimes a team will be allowed to replace a player during the tournament if there is a severe injury). I think Baseball used to be more, but now Ice hockey is the sport with the most athletes per team.

I want one of those quilts!

It reminds me of Atlanta.

Funny too how those buildings in the mountain athletes village resemble the Sochi 2014 bid logo, those jagged peaks.

However, the interiors aren't too great... somewhat dated - kinda like its Sochi 1994. Thats typically Russian. I noticed when I was there that they do not do modern interior design so well.
