Pyeongchang vows to respect IOC rules in 2018 bid

Pyeongchang vows to respect IOC rules in 2018 bid

The head of South Korea's bid committee for the 2018 Winter Olympics has pledged to respect the IOC's rules after being warned following a conflict-of-interest investigation into sponsorship contracts tied to Pyeongchang.
The chief executive of Korean Air Cho Yang-ho said in an e-mailed letter to the IOC Ethics Commission on Thursday that the Pyeongchang bid committee and every related organization "will strictly respect the IOC Code of Ethics, the Rules of Conduct and all proper implementing provisions."
His comments came after the International Olympic Committee ethics commission ordered Pyeongchang Wednesday to "fully respect the rules of conduct" after two South Korean companies signed sponsorship deals with international sports federations headed by senior IOC members.
