VANCOUVER/MOSCOW, Feb 12: Sochi is not only on course but, in some cases, ahead of schedule in its preparations for 2014 – according to Dmitry Chernyshenko, president and ceo of the Black Sea resort’s organising committee for Russia's first Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Chernyshenko confirmed, in an address to the International Olympic Committee ahead of the opening of the Vancouver Games, that Sochi was “delivering on all our promises but also striving to set new standards in everything we do, from protecting the environment to our record-breaking marketing programme.”

Work on the Rosa Khutor Mountain Ski Centre was ahead of time, according to Chernyshenko . He also claimed the creation of a sustainable project management system which would be testing in the 'real' environment of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.

Chernyshenko confirmed that Sochi has been working closely on the essentials with various international federations and thanked national Olympic  committees for visits and positive feedback.
