By Joe Ruley | BSU at the Games

Russia has created one of the world’s largest security forces for the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Doug Fry is in Sochi, Russia, to cheer on his daughter, Lyndsey Fry, a forward on the U.S. women's hockey team. The Chandler, Ariz., resident doesn't mind the security at Shayba Arena and elsewhere in Sochi given the potential threats.
