Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games


Clare is leading the TV coverage of all the action from the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games this Feburary, daily from 7am to 8pm on BBC Two, and introducing the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The Opening Ceremony, which will see more than 2,000 performers welcoming the world to Russia, will be live on BBC Two from 3.30pm on 7 February.

The Closing Ceremony celebrating Sochi’s hosting of the Games as the Olympic flame is extinguished in the Fisht Stadium starts on BBC Two at 4pm on 23 February.

Clare and her fellow presenters Hazel Irvine and Jonathan Edwards will be joined by a world-class team of winter sports experts including 2010 gold medallist Amy Williams and former Olympians Graham Bell, Colin Bryce, Emma Carrick-Anderson, Robin Cousins, Jackie Lockhart and Wilf O’Reilly. Each will draw on their Winter Olympic experience to bring the most unique and insightful analysis to viewers.

All of Team GB’s medal moments will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio 5 live throughout the 17-day event, with Chris Mitchell, Eleanor Oldroyd and Will Perry presenting all the main events and races live across 5 live’s daytime schedules.

Recognise that voice? Highly acclaimed actor and star of Game Of Thrones Charles Dance is the voice of ‘nature’ in the Winter Olympics Games trailer above - breathtaking!
