The long-awaited Winter Olympics will begin in the Russian city of Sochi on February 7.


No expense has been spared to stage the Games, which are estimated to have cost at least $50 billion. Around 2,500 athletes, from Jamaica to Japan, are expected to attend the 17-day event.


However, the Games have been shrouded with controversy, with concerns over the issue of gay rights in Russia and fears of terror attacks by militants.


Will you be attending the Games in Sochi? Are you following your country’s team? What do you think of the controversies? Send us your best images and video and you could be on CNN!

NOTE: For legal reasons, please do not send any photos or videos taken inside official Olympic venues.
