According to the Canadian Press on Friday, American president Barack Obama believes the 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be safe and is not discouraging Americans from attending.

Obama realizes there are "always risks" in major international events such as the Olympic Games.

Canadians are also concerned about the issue of safety at the Olympic Winter Games. In a recent poll conducted by Harris-Decima, 83% of those surveyed felt it was very important that there would be no security threats.

According to Leslie Young of Global News, the Canadian government is warning tourists to be careful. The new recommended guidelines are for tourists to avoid using public transit that is not affiliated with the Olympic Winter Games.

The 2014 Olympic Winter Games is four days away with men's slopestyle snowboarding qualifying and women's moguls qualifying on the Wednesday mountain time agenda. Qualifying for women's slopestyle snowboarding and the short programs for the men's and pairs team figure skating events will also take place on Thursday before the opening ceremonies on Friday.
