Olympic Worker Hunt Starts

SOCHI — With two years to go before the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics, Sochi organizers have begun recruiting volunteers.

The organizing committee said Tuesday that it expects to receive more than 200,000 applications from people between the ages of 18 and 80.

Volunteers are expected to make up about 30 percent of the total work force at the 2014 games.
