IOC inspectors have concluded their second visit to Pyeongchang by praising organizers for making good progress on preparations for the 2018 Winter Games.

IOC coordination commission chief Gunilla Lindberg says the panel has ''once again seen good progress'' and ''an excellent team effort'' from the organizing committee, all levels of government and the Korean Olympic Committee.

The commission cited the launch of Pyeongchang's new logo and finalization of venue plans.

The IOC panel made its first visit to Pyeongchang last year. It noted Wednesday that the locations for all sports venues have been defined and ''work is progressing rapidly on the design phase to ensure that all will be ready in time for the test events ahead of the games.''
