The Sochi Winter Olympics are inching near.  The countdown is on with less than six weeks away.
But recent attacks have rocked Russia and made athletes, spectators and former competitors concerned.
The past few days in Russia ended in deadly terror attacks with suicide bombers.
Bruce Baumgartner is a four time Olympic medalist nabbing the gold in 1984 and 1992 and winning Silver in 1988 and Bronze in 1996.
He says security is at an all time high and has significantly increased over the years.
He believes a terrorist attack would just enrage the many other countries... And he says the retaliation may put fear into the possible terrorist.
With bomb sniffing dogs, identification check points and metal detectors he believes there shouldn't be much concern.
