Sochi 2014 moves into Games-delivery phase
The IOC Coordination Commission of which FIS President Gian Franco Kasper is member paid its fifth visit to Sochi, Russia, this week and confirmed that preparations for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games are moving into the Games-delivery phase.
Sochi organizers are now fully focused on bringing the Games operations to life after the successful conclusion of the first sports events - FIS European Cup Alpine Skiing competitions - in February.
The Coordination Commission received a full update on the progress of preparations. Speaking after the event, Commission Chairman Jean-Claude Killy said: "Once again, we've seen great progress during our visit to Sochi."
"On the construction front, the initial vision for the transformation of the region is starting to materialize, with infrastructure and venues rapidly rising from the ground. The mascots have been selected, and planning is reaching a new level of detail. Sochi 2014 is starting to bring its Games vision to life, and is delivering on the legacy of improving the living conditions in the region through bringing infrastructural and environmental improvements." He added: "The Games are fundamentally about sport, but they are also about construction, transformation and legacy, and those four elements are starting to take shape quite nicely now. I have no doubt that Sochi 2014 will deliver a fantastic Olympic experience for all those attending the Games."
