American Athletes Going To Sochi Securely
Friday, January 10, 2014
(Undated) -- A Boston company is finalizing plans for American athletes' security at the Winter Games in Russia. Dan Richards owns Global Rescue.
Richards says among the plans are evacuation rendezvous points in Sochi and planes waiting at nearby airports. Chechen insurgent groups have vowed to attack the Games. They claim the Games desecrate sacred land.
Richards says this security assignment is more dangerous because the potential for danger is just hundreds of miles away.
