Sochi Olympics Already Bringing In Disappointingly Small Crowds!

sochi olympics have small crowd for qualifying events

The opening ceremonies for the 2014 Sochi Olympics don't kick off until tonight, however, there have already been a handful of qualifying events for the winter games over the past couple of days!

The only problem is, nobody seems to be showing up!!

Yesterday marked the first day of the slopestyle snowboarding event, and the stands were noticeably empty from beginning to end!

Those who did attend the event said the crowd was mostly Russian and there wasn't a huge international presence, and weather DEFINITELY wasn't a factor as it was sunny skies all day!!

Of course as we pointed out, these are simply qualifying events that take place before the opening ceremony tonight. However, the small crowds don't seem to be a good sign for a winter olympics that's already been plagued with issues!!
