Tuesday marked 100 days until the opening ceremony for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games.

Organizers say venue preparations are entering the homestretch. The Olympics will feature 12 new events, including women’s ski jumping.

More than 120,000 spectators and 5,400 competitors and support staff are expected to converge on Russia in February.

The prices tag of $51-billion makes the games the most expensive in history.
