Berlin (dpa) - The 2018 Winter Olympics host Pyeongchang still has "a lot of work to do" but Olympic officials are satisfied with preparations some two years ahead of the Games.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) coordination commission ended a sixth visit to Pyeongchang confident the South Korean host city "is moving in the right direction as Games preparations intensify in the final two years," an IOC statement said.

"There is still a lot of work to do, but Pyeongchang 2018 is on track to deliver great Olympic Winter Games for Korea and the world. We are pleased with what we have seen and heard during our visit," coordination commission head Gunilla Lindberg said.

Pyeongchang has held recent successful test events with the alpine ski World Cup, the snowboard World Cup and the freestyle ski World Cup.

Twenty-four test events are set for the next winter sports season, including the World Cup short track speed skating in December at the new Gangneung Ice Arena.

Construction at the ice arena and other competition venues remains on schedule.
