The U.S. Olympic Committee is “concerned” about Sochi Winter Olympics security after two deadly attacks in Volgograd, Russia, a committee official said Tuesday. “In this case we got a preview of what could happen, but we’re very hopeful that the Russians’ commitment to security, which is frankly one of the highest levels of commitment we’ve ever seen from a government and an organizing committee, will serve us well," Scott Blackmun, CEO of the U.S. Olympic Committee, told NBC News Monday.
The winter games are set to begin in just over a month in Sochi, which is about 600 miles from Volgograd. Blackmun's comments came after Seth Wescott, a two-time gold medalist in the snowboard cross event, warned he may skip the Opening Ceremony if he makes Team USA because of safety concerns.
