Couple returns from Sochi


Joyce and Fred Jones have traveled the world to see the Olympic Games.

"We've been to Beijing, we've been to Vancouver, and we went to London," said Joyce & Fred Jones,

Most recently the couple spent a week in Sochi meeting people from around the world and cheering on Team USA.

"We went to see bobsledding  and that was real good, we've always watched Bobsledding on TV it was really interesting," said Jones.

They also added to their huge Olympic pin collection.

"Some of the professional pin traders, they look for some of the Olympic pins from the past, or they look for something like this, a moveable one," said Jones.

Before the games, there were concerns about terrorism, but the games ended safely. The Jones say security was tight, but they felt safe.

"There were lines of defense, you saw policemen a lot of places," said Jones.

As far as attending the next Summer Olympics in Rio in 2016, well they say they just have have to wait and see.

"I don't know, this one was pretty expensive we really enjoyed it," said Jones.

If not, they have all these pins and souvenirs to remind them about how much fun they had in Sochi.
