Sochi 2014: 7 Things We Learned Out in Russia

I met an Italian sports photographer called Giuliano who is on his 24th Olympics. Yep, 24. 12 Summer and 12 Winter Olympics. He’s now nearly 70-years-old and he’s still hiking up slopes and jumping into photo pits with all the photographers. He told me he liked the early Olympics the most, “because I was young then!” I asked him where he’s off to next. He said the World Cup in Rio later this year. I mention that England aren’t likely to do very well, even though we’re always hoping for a re-run of 1966 – does he remember that? “Oh yes,” he says, “I was there.”
