The head of the Sochi Olympics has asked the IOC to help the Olympic Games rid itself of bad press because of Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law. Sochi wants the IOC to “stop this campaign and this speculation” over the anti-gay law and fears that the boycotts and protests are overshadowing the actual games. The IOC also wants the protests and boycotts to end quickly fearing that sponsors will pull out. “I think this could ruin a lot for all of us,” marketing commission chairman Gerhard Heiberg said. “We have to be prepared.” [TheGuardian]
