IOC inspection this week.

They should be welcomed by French Premier Fillon, but there is still a rumor that the President might come and say hello.

Opponents are tagging "NO JO" on whatever they can in Annecy, including the Annecy 2018 official merchandise shop, it is a little game they play with the organizers and the police. They defaced a freshly painted mural that had been inaugurated a few days ago.

PC where is impossible to have a good Biathlon championship or a where it's impossible to have Snowboard cross because Korea don't able to realize acceptable track... ? Hum seriously Korea doesn't match... Annecy have a best technical bid and a best place to host WoG. I think CIO doesn't choose PC to comeback in Asia, isn't the good choice, maybe in 2022 with China or Japan Bid

It doesn't matter. Are the French good at Speedskating?

What are you talking about? Since yesterday's great opening ceremony for the Alpine Skiing World Championships in Garmisch, I think that Annecy and Pyeongchang are out of the race anyway. ;):P (Hint for all who don't understand emoticons: I'm just kidding.)

Thank you. I dont know the plans of Munich or PC, but with so many ministers, it looks like a bit over the top to me.

That's a lot of people, it's true! :)

I guess it can help to reassure the IOC regarding the credibility of the bid and show the total support of the French Authorities.

And the political side will be counterbalanced by the strong mobilization of the athletes (Pernilla Wiberg, Jean Pierre Vidal...)

The work of the IOC Evaluation Commission began at 8:30 this morning in les Pensières (Fondation Mérieux conference center) in Veyrier-le-Lac on the shores of Lake Annecy.

Program agenda:

No "trip" today for the Evaluation Commission but six themes will be discussed:

Legacy and Communication, Concept, Accommodation, Sports and Venues, Transport, Environment and Meteorology

Jean-Claude Killy (IOC member) and Frédéric Lefebvre (Secretary of State for Tourism) participate in the meetings.

Meanwhile, a majority of journalists took the road to La Plagne, to visit and test the bobsled track, legacy of the 1992 Games.

The leading French newspaper Le Monde is "welcoming" the evaluation commission by devoting one full page to the opponents from the CAO (Comité Anti Olympique).

It appears that the invaded the Annecy city hall on February 3, stealing all the Olympic flags and destroying one video projector.

The CAO guys interviewed by Le Monde were the typical French leftist/altermondialist middle-class types (civil servant, professor of philosophy, bio-farmer, musician and composer, etc).
