SOCHI, Russia (AP) — IOC President Thomas Bach says things are going smoothly in Sochi with only a "small hiccup here or there" heading into Friday's opening ceremony of the Winter Games.

The International Olympic Committee held its first daily coordination commission meeting Friday with Sochi organizers to review operations.

Bach told the IOC assembly "everything is going pretty smoothly." He adds that "as always in the first days of the games, there is a small hiccup here or there, but nothing really substantial so far." He did not say what those problems were.

Bach says the IOC is looking toward Friday night "full of anticipation and excitement and hope that we will have a great opening ceremony for a great Olympic Games."
