We have just finished our first training runs in Sochi Olympic run. We had 3 runs each early this morning (5:45 AM Latvian time).

As for the weather, rain was pouring all morning long, but it did not affect our training as much since almost all of the track is covered. However, it does affect the humidity and it made ice ''slower''. Also, ice sprinkle was not done this morning, but it will be done tomorrow, so the times should be better.

Forecast says it will be sunny and dry tomorrow, so hopefully the ice will be faster. The ice quality is still allright, no matter the warm weather- to speeds reached 121km/h today.

As for runs- in todays training group there were LAT, AUS, GBR, NED, ROU, ITA and NZL athletes and The ''D'' brothers had the best times. As for Lelde, it also does not seem to be a problem, she likes the track.

More info updates soon!
