Russia can get into competing for hosting the Summer Olympics, Head of Russia-2018 Organizing Committee Arkady Dvorkovich admits. In his opinion, it is quite possible, however there is not a corresponding decision so far.

It goes without saying that our country is going to host grand sports tournaments in future, Deputy Prime Minister explained. Dvorkovich has reminded that nobody of our partners and international sports associations has doubts that Russia is quite up to it, according to Sport Express newspaper.

At present, the Summer Olympic Games are scheduled until 2028. The following games are to be held in Japan, then the Olympics would be hosted by Paris and Los Angeles later.

Now the FIFA World Cup is coming to an end, but the tournament will leave a great heritage afterwards. First of all, it concerns sports infrastructure. Several dozens of training facilities built for the World Cup at different regions of Russia will not stay unoccupied. Young football players will get training there.

Besides, Russia has demonstrated its ability to host major tournaments at the top level complying with all the security regulations and participation of volunteers. Moreover, the World Cup opened Russian hospitality and friendliness to the whole world.
