Schumer slams IOC for choosing Sochi for Winter Olympics

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. - As the Sochi Olympics came to a close on Sunday, Senator Charles Schumer had some tough words for Russia and the International Olympic Committee.

Schumer says the IOC made the wrong decision to hold the Olympics in the Russian city, calling the nation host to a long list of human rights violations.

The Senator said the committee needs to change how it awards the games.
