BERLIN, February 02, (ITAR-TASS). Sochi has everything necessary to have the Olympic Games at high level, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach said in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.
“Sochi has all the conditions to host wonderful Olympic Games. The athletes will enjoy wonderful conditions. The sports facilities have proved themselves during the test competitions and since then have been improved partially. The Olympic villages are a success. About 80 percent of the athletes will be able to walk from hotels to training grounds or competitions. The distance between those - both in the mountains and at the seashore - is shorter than those in Vancouver, Turin and Salt Lake City,” Bach said.
While speaking about anti-terror measures Russia has undertaken, he said the issue had remained vital since the terror act during the Olympic Games in Munich back in 1972.
“Or, remember the Games in 2002, just several months after /911. I believe the Russian security will manage their task as well as back then /in Salt Lake City/ their American counterparts did,” he said.
