While Olympic officials continue to insist they can stage a safe and secure 2014 Sochi Games, athletes from around the world are beginning to voice doubts after the twin bombings in Russia this week.

Torah Bright, the defending women's halfpipe champion from Australia, says she might stay home in February.

"If the political position gets any worse, I sure as hell won't be risking my safety just for an Olympic Games," Bright told the Australian Associated Press.
