The Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia starts Thursday and there’s a local connection to the games.

Fieldtex Products made the duffel bags being used by the U.S. athletes at this year’s games. The company located on Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road, produced 1,300 bags for the Olympians overseas.

Carol Maynard, Fieldtex, said, “We do a lot of stuff for our military, but nothing like overseas. To see something on the international level is really thrilling for us.”
