The Olympic Games are officially in full swing, and as of Monday night, a total of 14 gold medals had been awarded. Two of those gold medals belong to Americans.
With two days in the books, there's still a lot to look forward to, including 12 new events like the luge team relay, free skiing half-pipe, snowboard slopestyle and women's ski jump.
Men's hockey at the Bolshoy Ice Dome doesn't get started until Wednesday. Kikkan Randall begins her quest for gold Tuesday. In the meantime, there are plenty of events taking place that are drawing the attention of the masses.
Throughout the first few days of the games, Olympic officials said they sold about 90 percent of tickets for all events, although 10 percent of those who had tickets were unable to attend.
Russian officials cited poor planning by spectators as the reason.
"During the first days, people are really working out with the timing, how long does it actually take time to get to the venues, how long does it take them to cross the security perimeter," said Aleksandra Kosterina, Sochi 2014 Comm. Head. "So it's not an issue of security per se but, an issue of the logistics."
Sports are definitely the big draw in Sochi, but they aren't the only thing visitors are looking forward to.
"What I'm really excited about is being in a place that is completely foreign to me, but I feel somewhat comfortable in," said Gabrielle Kouchacji, visiting from Wyoming. "I don't speak Russian, so this is really interesting, going to a place that I would never go to on my own."
In Sochi, it's history being made and memories that will last a lifetime.
