Here we go again.
Remember those heady early days of Sochi, when pretty much everything in the hotels was breaking down and athletes were getting trapped in their bathrooms and nearly tumbling down elevator shafts? Well, the Paralympics are gearing up in Sochi, and guess what: they're having early-days problems too!
