PyeongChang 2018 Coordination Commission

Recommended Posts

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge has appointed Ms Gunilla Lindberg to chair the Coordination Commission for the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, Republic of Korea, in 2018. PyeongChang was awarded the 2018 Olympic Winter Games last month in Durban. Lindberg will lead a strong, multinational team of men and women, who will be responsible for assisting and guiding the PyeongChang Organising Committee during the period leading up to the Olympic Winter Games, as well as monitoring the progress of preparations.

Lindberg, who led the 2018 Evaluation Commission, will be rejoining the IOC Executive Board as of the end of the month, building on her two previous mandates as a member (2000-2004) and Vice-President (2004-2008). An IOC member since 1996 and Secretary General of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) since 2004, Lindberg brings vast experience from her time spent on Coordination Commissions for five Olympic Games.

...

The composition of the Coordination Commission is as follows:

Gunilla LINDBERG Chair, IOC Member -SWE

Gilbert FELLI , Olympic Games Executive Director - SUI

Angela RUGGIERO, IOC Member and Athletes’ Commission Representative - USA

Gian-Franco KASPER , AIOWF Representative SUI

Great choices. Fasel, Cinquanta and Kasper deserve credit for serving on these commissions for the different Winter Games year-in and year-out.

I am pretty sure Fasel was the chair for Vancouver. Plus it makes sense to have heads of the winter IFs as part of the commission.

Cinquanta will be out of the ISU by 2014. will he still be one of the IOC members for Italy after 2014?

Cinquanta will be out of the ISU by 2014. will he still be one of the IOC members for Italy after 2014?

Good question. He could be extended, in which case, his IOC membership would just continue. Now whether his seat on this Coordination Commission will continue if he no longer heads the ISU, conceivably he could stay on in a consulting basis. They always make exceptions since these are appointed positions rather than elected ones. At the same time, if he wanted to quit tomorrow due to illness or personal obligation, I am sure nothing will hold him down.

(But 3 Swiss members on that team. <_< )

PyeongChang 2018 quick off the blocks following successful bid process

Building on the momentum of a comprehensive bid process run by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the organisers of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games have got off to a strong start, embarking on preparations to deliver the Republic of Korea’s first Olympic Winter Games.

The IOC Coordination Commission for PyeongChang 2018, chaired by IOC Executive Board member Gunilla Lindberg, made its first inspection visit to the winter resort town this week and praised the work already undertaken by the local organisers.

“We were pleased by the high quality of presentations that were delivered by the very capable team at PyeongChang 2018, under the leadership of President Jin Sun Kim,” said Lindberg. “They have a good grasp of what is expected of them and what they need to accomplish. They have taken full advantage of the bid process to learn from the IOC and previous Olympic hosts and this is clearly reflected in their current work.”

The Commission visited PyeongChang from 20 to 22 March, with the organisers confirming that they would continue to build upon their impressive bid vision for the Games, which has a strong focus on sport, legacy and sustainability. In addition, the structure of the PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (POCOG) is quickly taking shape, with the key roles already filled.

The Commission also got a first-hand look at the venues in the Alpensia and Gangneung coastal clusters. Six of the sites already exist and a clear construction schedule has been established for the others - indeed, the construction of the Olympic Village in Gangneung has already begun. All the venues are being developed with a view to providing optimal competition and training conditions for the athletes at Games time.

There's a nice video about the IOC Coordination Commission's visit to Pyeongchang in the article above (in Korean, but Gunilla Lindberg makes some remarks), which basically says there is nothing really lacking in POCOG's organizing efforts thus far, and that they're well ahead of schedule. The IOC has also said that the alpine areas of Jeongseon, Jungbong and Gariwang will not be a problem, and that POCOG will work alongside environmental groups to discuss any concerns they might have about building any venues. The Commission will make 10 more trips to Pyeongchang to inspect progress before 2018.
