Fans wait in long lines for tickets

The festive mood continues in Sochi on day two of the Winter Olympics... Fans and spectators walked between venues, stopping to admire the sights. But problems remain for those attempting to get inside the venues. Long lines at ticket counters persist. Some of these people have been waiting in line for more than two hours to buy tickets to various events. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) YEVGENY, FAN FROM ST. PETERSBURG, SAYING: "It is a shame... people are standing here, not only Russians but foreigners as well. I think it is wrong that there is only one window which sells one ticket in ten minutes." And delays in purchasing tickets, means arriving at the venues late, long lines at the security checks, and ultimately, empty seats during the sporting events. Event organizers say people should show up early to avoid some of these logistic problems.
