    Chernyshenko, who has led Sochi 2014 from its days as a bid city, is handling the organization of the Games. In 2013 that will mean the migration of hundreds of staff members from Moscow to Sochi to execute the Games, as well as the training and deployment of thousands of volunteers. 

    Away from Sochi, Chernyshenko will oversee the longest torch relay in the annals of the Games. The four-month trek begins in Moscow in early October.
