This paper is about the sustainable development of the Sochi region for the Winter Olympic Games 2014. The Olympic Committee elaborated an ecological strategy in order to be “Green”. A new transport system has been built according to the needs of the Winter Olympic Games with the respect of environment. Some technological innovations have been brought in the event to prevent the lack and the quality of snow. Moreover they have wisely thought about the future use of the facilities by hosting new events such the Formula 1 or the Football World Cup. The Games have succeeded from an economical and social aspect but being ecologically friendly in such large event still remains a challenge.
