München 2018: Gunilla Lindberg wird IOC-Inspektorin

Es ist die kleinste Evaluierungskommission des IOC der vergangenen Jahrzehnte. Damit wird dem bescheidenen internationalen Interesse an den Olympischen Winterspielen 2018 Rechnung getragen. Denn schließlich interessieren sich so wenige Städte/Regionen für diese Spiele, wie seit drei Jahrzehnten nicht mehr.

Anyway, in den diplomatischen Rang eines Staatsgastes wird demnächst in Deutschland die schwedische Berufsfunktionärin Gunilla Lindberg erhoben: Sie wurde von IOC-Präsident Jacques Rogge dazu auserkoren, die Evaluierungskommission 2018 zu leiten.

IOC announces composition of Evaluation Commission for 2018 Winter Games

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced today that Swedish IOC member Gunilla Lindberg will chair an 11-member Evaluation Commission tasked with making a comprehensive technical appraisal of the three Candidate Cities bidding to host the 2018 Olympic Winter Games: Munich (Germany), Annecy (France) and PyeongChang (South Korea).*

The Evaluation Commission is composed of representatives of the Olympic Movement as well as a number of advisors, and enjoys full continental representation.

Lindberg, a member of the IOC Executive Board from 2000 to 2004 and IOC Vice-President from 2004 to 2008, is vastly experienced from her time spent on Coordination Commissions for five Olympic Games and her work with the Evaluation Commission for the 2006 Turin Olympic Winter Games.

The 2018 Evaluation Commission will analyse the candidature files before making on-site inspections of the cities between 8 February and 5 March 2011. The Commission will issue its report for IOC members ahead of the election of the host city on 6 July 2011, during the 122nd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa.

“The Evaluation Commission will be well-served by the appointment of Gunilla Lindberg as its Chair,? said IOC President Jacques Rogge. “Ms Lindberg has extensive knowledge of what it takes to host an Olympic Games, in particular a Winter Games, and possesses all the skills necessary to lead our team of experts and make the best possible analyses of the three Candidate Cities.?

Commenting on her appointment, Lindberg said: “It is a great honour for me to have been chosen to head such an important commission within the IOC. I very much look forward to working with my highly qualified colleagues in evaluating the bids from three excellent Candidate Cities.?

Representatives from Munich, Annecy and PyeongChang will give presentations to all IOC members during a technical meeting scheduled for next May in Lausanne. The Evaluation Commission’s report will coincide with this meeting.

The composition of the Commission is as follows:

Gunilla LINDBERG Chair, IOC Member SWE
