Recent attacks in Russia have raised concerns about safety during upcoming Winter Olympics.

11 News is getting reaction to the recent attacks from officials with the United States Olympic Committee.

A spokesperson tells 11 News there there won't be any major changes made to the security plans that are already in place.

"There's always a concern of safety at the Olympics, regardless of these attacks happening or not,"said USOC spokesperson Patrick Sandusky.

We've learned that olympic officials have been working with Russian authorities for years, coming up with security measures to make sure the athletes and spectators stay safe during the games.

"The Russians have it in their best interest to ensure the games go off safe, that the games are secure, and that the athletes from all the countries around the world are safe and secure," said Sandusky.

We're also told there has been no change to how the athletes are getting to the Olympics or where they will be staying. Officials tell 11 News the Olympic Village where the athletes stay is one the safest places to be during the games.
