Today the delegation, chaired by Executive Director of the International Olympic Games Gilbert Felli is planning to visit Lviv and Transcarpathian region, where ski resort Tysovets, Slavske and Volovets are located, according to the Ministry of Family, Youth and Sports.
The presentation of the opportunities and the natural conditions of the western region concerning the Winter Games is planned for the international guests. Also options for sites to build the Olympic village and luge and bobsleigh routes will be presented to the delegation.
Member of the Executive Committee of the International Olympic Committee in the Lvivska region Miroslav Hertzy said that the Ukrainian Carpathians have extremely convenient geographic conditions for the Winter Olympic sports. According to him, the idea of the Olympic Games is a little premature, but the motivation is good, because experts have the opportunity on the other hand to look at the Carpathian Mountains and assess the chances of Ukraine.
The country will have to build the whole infrastructure: ice rinks, highways, tracks, etc. Moreover, as repeatedly said Vice Prime Minister Borys Kolesnikov, Ukraine should build half of objects even before 2014 (before filing) to announce its intentions.
Foreign visitors in the Lvivska region will be accompanied by the leadership of the International Olympic Committee of Ukraine and the Minister for Family, Youth and Sports Ravil Safiullin, reports Ukrainskaya pravda.
Application for the Olympic Games in 2022 is to be sent to the International Olympic Committee no later than in 2014. In late 2010 committee will determine 3-4 countries which will fight for the status of capital of Olympic games. The capital of Winter Olympic Games will be known in 2015.
