The Center, which rests on the crest and slopes of the Psekhako Ridge, includes two stadiums, two track systems, a shooting area and warm-up zones. Laura, a mountain river with several waterfalls, is named after a Russian legend about a young girl who jumped to her death in the turbulent waters to avoid marrying a prince.
