13/02/2012

With less than two years to go until the Sochi 2014 Games begin, the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s Coordination Commission has begun its seventh visit to the Russian host city. Under the chairmanship of IOC member Jean-Claude Killy, the Commission is spending three days (12-14 February) hearing updates on the progress being made by the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee and its partners.

All about the Games

During its meetings with the Sochi 2014 organisers, the Commission will be briefed on a number of Games-related topics such as sport, athletes’ services, construction, media services, transport, workforce, accommodation, Games operations, spectator services, the Paralympic Games, marketing, medical services, legacy and technology. These discussions will allow the Commission members to see the evolution of the project since their last visit in September 2011, and share their knowledge and experience of previous Games to help Sochi refine their plans.

Visiting the Venues

As part of their visit, the Commission members will tour some of the venues in the mountains, including the freestyle centre, the mountain Olympic Village, the national sliding centre, and the Roza Khutor ski resort, which hosted the FIS Ski World Cup this weekend. This will permit them to see firsthand the development of those venues and get a better picture of how Sochi’s planning will be put into action.
