VANCOUVER 2010: IOC Project Review Comes To A Close
An IOC delegation, led by the Chairman of the IOC’s Coordination Commission for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, René Fasel, completed a successful two-day project review of the Vancouver Games this week. The project review group, which also included members of the IOC administration and IOC experts, received updates on the progress that the Vancouver 2010 Organising Committee (VANOC) has made since the last project review visit that followed the Torino 2006 debrief held in Vancouver this July.
Guidance And Assessment
The IOC group spent the two days of meetings, held at the VANOC offices, looking at the progress made by the local organisers in different Games-related fields, including areas as diverse as athlete accommodation, sport, marketing and press operations. The reports from the Vancouver 2010 management team gave the IOC delegation the opportunity to hear and assess first-hand the continuing progress of the Vancouver 2010 project. It also allowed the members of the review group to offer VANOC their guidance on any issues arising since the previous visit of the Coordination Commission.
Executive Project Review
Project reviews allow the chairmen of the different IOC Coordination Commissions, along with members of the IOC administration and, where necessary, other Coordination Commission members and IOC experts, to be updated on the respective Olympic Games projects in between the full visits of the Coordination Commission. The full Commission visits once a year until four years before the Games, and then twice a year until the Games.
Vancouver will host the XXI Olympic Winter Games from 12 to 28 February 2010, with the mountain events taking place in Whistler. Vancouver and Whistler will also host the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games from 12 to 21 March 2010.
