SOCHI, July 16 (Itar-Tass) - Six months before the start of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi the International Olympic Committee (IOC) highly assesses the preparedness of the city for the upcoming event, Chairman of the IOC Coordination Commission Jean-Claude Killy for Sochi 2014 told reporters on Tuesday.
During another inspection visit the IOC representatives have examined the already built Olympic sports venues and infrastructure needed for the Olympic events. “We still have six months ahead and, of course, the city is not yet fully ready. But if we compare Sochi with other cities that hosted the Olympic Games, I can note the high level of its preparation and readiness six months before the Olympic Games,” said Killy, noting the obvious progress in the preparations for the 2014 Olympics since his previous visit to Sochi, which took place a few months ago.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said for his part that the preparations for the Olympics in Sochi are going according to the plan. “Actualising the current date, we also share the optimism expressed by Jean-Claude Killy,” said the RF deputy prime minister.
