Excitement is building before the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia.

The opening ceremony is only 100 days away.

People posed for pictures yesterday in front of the countdown clock in Moscow.

Almost all of the Olympic venues have been built from scratch, and most of them are ready.

The only remaining arena still unfinished is the Olympic stadium, where the opening and closing ceremonies will take place.

There will be 12 new events at this Olympics, including Women's Ski Jumping and Slopestyle Snowboarding.

The opening ceremony will take place in the Black Sea Resort City of Sochi on February 7, and the closing ceremony will be on February 23.
