International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach today cancelled the daily Games Coordination meeting until further notice thanks to the successful start to the Games made by the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee.

The Games Coordination meeting is led by the IOC President. It brings together representatives of the IOC, National Olympic Committees, International Federations and the Organising Committee for the Olympic Games to discuss the progress and main issues surrounding the Games, and to identify solutions where necessary.

Speaking at the end of today’s meeting, President Bach said, “We are now four days into the Games and are very satisfied with the way they are unfolding.” He continued, “In light of the great success so far, I have decided to cancel the regular coordination meetings between the IOC and Sochi 2014 until further notice.”

The first Games Coordination meeting was held last Friday, the day of the Opening Ceremony. The meetings took place the following two days before a one-day hiatus on Monday due to the positive start made by the Sochi organisers. Given the good level of operations seen so far during the first week of the Games, the decision was taken by the President that it was not necessary in the foreseeable future to continue with the meetings.
