STORY SCRIPT:  

With just under four weeks to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) believes the host city is in impeccable condition.

Successful test events have been held and lessons learned incorporated into Games planning to ensure excellent conditions for the athletes to perform at the highest level.

IOC Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi said: “[With] one month to go we are into the fine, very fine details I would say. We have had an excellent campaign of test events, we’ve learnt a lot. Modifications, slight modifications, have been made to the operational plans. The venues are ready. They look fantastic. They have now received the look of the Games and frankly it’s impeccable.”

Dubi was speaking one day after his arrival in the Chinese capital and after the IOC held a series of the traditional consultation calls with athlete representatives from around the world, the National Olympic Committees and the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations. They were also joined by the Beijing 2022 Organising Committee.
