Sochi Olympics plea for help

So I am attempting to write this fic that has the Sochi Olympics smack in the middle of it, and I am having a heck of a time finding information about athlete experiences there. If anyone has any articles, blogs they followed, anything like that that went into specifics of how athletes got to Sochi (did the entire US men's hockey team fly to Russia together?) and what they did once they got there (how and when did they get their security passes?), I would be extremely appreciative.

What I'd really love is some first-hand accounts from athletes who competed, but I'm not finding anything like that; so far I've only been able to find spectator accounts.

Ugh, research. :P

I found this, which is actually quite interesting. You might also try Twitter - look up an athlete's name and use the search bar to try and find anything about Sochi.

And moscow_watcher was there, being awesome.

I find Twitter not particularly navigable for older results, but I will give that a try.

And yeah, the restrictions on athletes talking about their experiences were really weird. No videos!
