Bach singles out Ukrainian win as standout moment

Ukraine's victory in the women's biathlon relay was the standout moment of the Sochi Olympics, a powerful symbol of unity during the country's bloody political crisis, said IOC President Thomas Bach.

«In this moment, mourning on the one hand, but knowing what really is going on in your country, seeing your capital burning, and feeling this responsibility, and then winning the gold medal, this really stands out for me. It was really an emotional moment», he said in an interview with The Associated Press.
