Sochi Problems: #SochiProblems Highlights Problems in Olympic Host City

February 7, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Sochi has problems, and the hashtag #SochiProblems has taken off highlighting them.

Also, the new Twitter account @SochiProblems was also started to help highlight the problems in the Olympic host city. It already has over 262,000 followers–more than the official Sochi Olympics account.

The problems have included lack of or yellow drinking water in hotels, construction work apparently not finished yet, and poor translations on restaurants menus.

During the Olympic Opening Ceremony, one of the problems involved the fifth Olympic Ring not lighting properly, as seen above.

Check out some more examples below.
