(KSDK) – Although the World Series heads back to Boston this week, another important milestone happens Tuesday in preparation for another worldwide event.

Tuesday marks the countdown to Sochi, Russia as the XXII Olympic Winter Games is now only 100 days away.

The Sochi 2014 Olympic Torch relay got underway earlier this month and will cover the longest route in history, including a journey to the North Pole. Approximately 14,000 torchbearers will carry it through 83 regions of the country.

One big way to support team USA before the games kick off is to buy a pair of GO USA mittens, which are available at teamusa.org and other outlets for $14 a pair. Proceeds go to the U.S. Olympic team.

The 2014 Winter Olympics kick off Feb. 7, 2014. To follow the countdown or see the latest information with the Olympics, check out the official website.
