IOC's Killy: Sochi work on track

The head of the International Olympic Committee's coordination commission for the Sochi Winter Olympics says construction of venues is proceeding at an impressive pace.
Last year, Jean-Claude Killy warned Russian officials that construction delays could threaten the ambitious plans for the 2014 games, which includes building all the facilities anew.
But on Wednesday he told a news conference that "as far as we are concerned, and according to our experts, everything is going according to plan."
He added he wouldn't have said that last year.
Killy spoke at the end of a three-day inspection tour by the commission. It was the fifth inspection of the work in the Black Sea resort area.
