The Central Olympic Stadium (Fisht Stadium) will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Human Rights Watch documented the exploitation of dozens of workers during construction of the stadium in 2011-2012, including withholding of wages, excessively long working hours with only one day off per month, and overcrowded and unsanitary employer-provided housing.
