(SFC) The International Olympic Committee’s Coordination Commission began its seventh visit of Rio de Janeiro and the 2016 Rio Olympic Summer Games Organising Committee Monday.

Commission Chair Nawal El Moutawakel and the rest of the Commission will finish its trip to Brazil Wednesday, 1 Oct., during which time meetings will be held with the Brazilian organisers to determine the progress of preparations just two years from the Opening Ceremony at the Maracanã Stadium.

Rio 2016 just last month released information regarding its volunteer recruitment programme and ticket prices for the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, and the Commission will learn of updates to athletes’ services, sport, venues, National Olympic Committee services, International Federation services, accommodation, transport, marketing, media services, and Paralympic Games preparations.
