IOC visit Sochi again to check on preparations
With the Olympics less than a year away, IOC inspectors are
visiting Sochi again to check on preparations for the 2014 Winter
The IOC coordination commission, headed by Jean-Claude Killy,
began two days of meetings and site visits Tuesday in the Black Sea
It is the panel’s ninth and second-to-last trip to Sochi before
the opening of the games on Feb. 7, 2014. Russia is spending more
than $50 billion on venues and infrastructure projects to prepare
for its first Winter Games.
Also taking part in this week’s meetings are leaders of the
seven winter sports federations on the Olympic program.
The IOC says talks will cover games operations, the torch relay,
technology and the ”client experience” for athletes, national
Olympic committees, spectators and media.
