Killy Impressed With Sochi

KRASNAYA POLYANA — The International Olympic Committee sees "no real burning issues" for Sochi as it ramps up preparations for the 2014 Winter Games.

Concluding the IOC's latest inspection visit Tuesday, coordination commission chairman Jean-Claude Killy says he sees "no reason for concern" for organizers to complete all the work in time.

The French ski great says "the worries are the same as other games … transport, accommodation, security." Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak promised that all the venues would be completed by the end of this year. Killy says the IOC was impressed with the World Cup ski races held here last weekend.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
