Time is running out for those hoping to volunteer at the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. On March 1, 2013 volunteer registration for 2014 Winter Olympics will close for good.
An estimated 25,000 volunteers will be needed to work nearly 50,000 shifts in more than 20 areas, from meeting delegations at the airport to helping with the Closing Ceremony. There will also be 3,000 volunteers specifically trained to welcome visitors and help them find their way between venues. In total, volunteers will account for more than 30% of the total Sochi staff.
