Fisht Olympic Stadium

The Fisht Olympic Stadium is built in the new Sochi Olympic Park. It is named after Mount Fisht. It is located within walking distance of the Olympic Village and the capacity of the stadium will be 40,000. The Olympic Stadium, designed like a shell to recall the glories of Fabergé art, will provide a seaside setting for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympics and 2014 Winter Paralympics.

In October 2013, the Central Bank of Russia issued a commemorative 100 rouble note, a hundred days before the start of the winter Olympic Games in Sochi. The blue tinted banknote depicts a flying snowboarder on one side, and on the other the Fisht Olympic Stadium and a firebird.


Figure skating

Figure skating has been contested in the Olympic Games since the 1908 Summer Olympics. In 1908 and 1920, the figure skating competitions were held in conjunction with the Games of the Olympiad. Since 1924, figure skating has been a part of the Winter Olympic Games.

Skaters qualify for the Olympic Games by belonging to a Member nation of the International Skating Union. 80% of the allotted places (24 men/ladies, 19 dance couples, 16 pairs) are determined by the results of the previous year's World Figure Skating Championships.
