“A victory in sports is a real feat,” His Holiness said. “Among other components, a victory in sports has a strong spiritual component.”

“Sports victories make Russians proud of their country,” the Patriarch continued. “I call on you to always be a good example for young people. I hope that Russian athletes will show good results in the winter Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014.”
