MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. President of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Alexander Zhukov told TASS on Tuesday that the Coordination Commission of the 2022 Winter Games in China’s Beijing would pay its first official visit to the Asian country on October 9.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced in late February that Zhukov was appointed to chair the Coordination Commission of the 2022 Winter Games in China’s Beijing. The ROC president also served the chairman of the IOC Evaluation Commission to select the 2022 Winter Olympic Games hosting country.
"The first visit of the Coordination Commission begins on October 9," Zhukov said in an interview with TASS. "During the first session of the 2022-Olympics Organizing Committee it will report on the preparations for the Games and then inspection visits to the (Olympic) facilities will take place."
Russia’s Dmitry Chernyshenko, who was the head of the 2014 Sochi Olympics Organizing Committee, is also one of the 2022 Olympics Coordinating Committee’s 16 members.
During the 128th IOC session in Kuala Lumpur on July 31, 2015, Beijing was elected the host city for the 2022 Winter Olympics making the Chinese capital the first city ever to host both the Summer Games (in 2008) and the Winter Games (in 2022). Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Olympics in a tight race over Kazakhstan’s Almaty eventually securing 44 votes against 40 in support of the largest Kazakh city.
