98 events in 15 winter sport disciplines will be held.
As of October 2013, the estimated cost of the 2014 Winter Olympics had topped US$51 billion. This total, if borne out, would be over four times the initial budget of $12 billion (compared to the $8 billion spent for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver), and would make the Sochi games the most expensive Olympics in history, exceeding the estimated $44 billion cost of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
Two winter olympic medal projections by country are in agreement on who they think the top four countries will be.
5-10 are in general agreement but not in the order and there are variations in the amount of medals.
