IOC praises 'magnificent' Sochi, untroubled by gay law
Police detain a gay rights activist outside the headquarters of the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee in Moscow on September 25, 2013
"Everything is really magnificent," said IOC coordination committee chairman Jean-Claude Killy at the committee's final conference before the grand sports event kicks off in just over four months in the southern resort city
"Sochi is not late by any means," he said, adding that only "details" remain to be completed and calling on Russian organisers to "use every hour that remains."
Killy also dismissed concerns concerning Russia's controversial law banning so-called "gay propaganda" which punishes people for disseminating information about homosexuality to minors.
"As long as the Olympic Charter is respected, we are satisfied," Killy said.
