KRASNAYA POLYANA, Krasnodar territory, February 12 (Itar-Tass) — International Olympic Committee (IOC) Coordination Commission Chairman Jean-Claude Killy is confident that Olympic sites in Sochi will be ready far ahead of the Games.
He thanked Russia for the first results of the work done in the past five years and said that few countries were capable of starting from the scratch and offering Games of the level expected from Russia.
