Baku-APA.U.S. President Barack Obama said he opposes boycotting 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics on Friday, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

The boycott suggestion came after Russia passing an antigay law recently.

"I do not think it's appropriate to boycott the Olympics. We' ve got a bunch of Americans who are training hard, who are doing everything they can to succeed," said Obama. "Nobody's more offended than me by some of the anti-gay and -lesbian legislation that we've been seeing in Russia."

Obama said he hoped a gay athlete would take home a medal.

The 2014 Winter Olympics would start in February in the City of Sochi
