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.
