Russia's Putin inspects Olympic sites, plays ice hockey

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Russian President Vladimir Putin continued inspecting Olympic facilities in Sochi on Saturday. He played ice hockey with the Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, former ice-hockey players Vyacheslav Fetisov and others. The game took place at the "Bolshoy" Ice Dome - one of the venues for the Games with a 12,000 seat capacity. After the ice hockey, Putin took a ride on a new high-speed train, inspected the railway station, visited the media center and paid a visit to the Olympics volunteers uniform distribution center where he tried on a volunteer outfit. The inspection takes place just five weeks ahead of the start of the Games that begin on February 7. According to a spokesman, Putin plans to inspect all Olympic sites in the coming days.
