Update from the IOC regarding Internet Access
Following discussions the IOC has held with the organisers of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on the difficulties experienced this week in accessing some web sites, the IOC is pleased to see that the issues are quickly being resolved.
The media should be seeing a noticeable difference in accessibility to web sites that they need to report on the Olympic Games.
The IOC has always encouraged the Beijing 2008 organisers to provide media with the fullest access possible to report on the Games, including access to the internet, knowing this is important for them to do their job. This access has always been assured by BOCOG and the Chinese authorities and the IOC is pleased to see these are assurances being upheld.
