U.S. speed skater asks family not to go to Sochi due to threat

U.S. Olympic speed skater Tucker Fredricks asked his family not to follow him to Sochi because of security concerns, his father said Tuesday.

Fredricks, 29, is going to his third and final Olympics in February and told his family he didn’t want to worry about them while there. The U.S. State Department issued a travel alert to Russia earlier this month due to recent security concerns.
