There is no intention to compromise the Paralympic experience. We have discussed this with the IPC and are making arrangements.
When it comes to the management of cash in events like this, we have enough friends and partners to fix all the problems.
Of course it is an embarrassment because we are hosting the Olympic Games. It should be light blue, transparent. We could have done better in fixing it quickly. We learned a painful lesson the hard way.
We need to finish what we have started. I'll be glad to come to you after the games and give you a full detailed report on everything we did well and everything that we did wrong. But we have a lot of celebrate.
Preliminary reports say there was a serious accident.
There was a sudden decrease of alkalinity. We probably failed to note that with more athletes the water could be affected.
There is absolutely no risk to anybody. The independent group (charged with checking the water quality) confirmed the measures to bring the pool back to its normal colour.
We don't know exactly what happened.
The first flags should be delivered here shortly ... as quick as possible.
We apologize for everybody standing in line outside the venues. Within the next hours we will be in much better shape.
Authorities are investigating the incident and "they can clearly determine this area was not the target, it was a stray bullet. They can confirm it has nothing to do with the games but they cannot be more precise at the moment.
We hope to clear the lines in the Olympic park.
The track cycling test event has been cancelled and will be replaced by a training opportunity June 25th through the 27th. We are 120 per cent confident it will be ready for the Olympics.
We are adjusting minor things: printing, backstage structures, structures that are not necessary for the field of play.
People get upset about luxury and excess, we have to tighten our belts.
What we are trying to do is identify if there is any fat and save on the fat. We cannot go a penny over budget.
As long as we don't compromise the games, the quality of the competitions, the experience of the public – then we have to look for efficiencies.
