Vancouver 2010: Whistler Venues Media Day Scheduled for July 26th

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) will host its third annual media briefing and tour of Whistler venues, with general sport and construction updates on Thursday, July 26, 2007, beginning at 7:30 am.

Members of the media are encouraged to take full advantage of this tour as the venues are active construction sites with highly limited access. This will be the only opportunity to access the venues for photos and b-roll during the 2007 construction season. It will also be the final chance to visit the Whistler Nordic Venue and the Whistler Sliding Centre before construction is completed later this fall. The Whistler Nordic Venue will host biathlon, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined and ski jumping events during the Olympic Winter Games, and biathlon and cross-country skiing during the Paralympic Winter Games. The Whistler Sliding Centre will host bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton events during the Olympic Winter Games.

The Whistler Venues Media Day tour will begin with registration at 7:30 am and conclude at approximately 2:00 pm.

Additional details, including registration, locations, attendees and logistics, will be provided in the near future.
