PYEONGCHANG ON TRACK: The AP reports the IOC is "convinced that preparations" for the '18 Pyeongchang Games are "on track, in contrast with concerns over the chronic construction delays" for the Rio Games. IOC Pyeongchang Coordination Commission Chair Gunilla Lindberg led the group on a "three-day inspection visit" to the city. She said that a "large amount of work had been achieved since the panel's previous visit in June last year" (AP, 5/1).
