SOCHI, February 7, 2014 - Tomorrow, Olympic journalists who have covered six or more Winter Games will be honored at a special ceremony hosted by AIPS, the Austrian NOC, and Austria Tirol House.

The awardees will be welcomed by Chancellor of Austria Werner Faymann and Austrian Sports Minister Gerald Klug; as well as IOC members including Vice President Nawal El Moutawakel, chairman of the IOC Press Commission Kevan Gosper, and Olympic champion and IOC member Yumilka Ruiz.

Also in attendance will be Peter Schroecksnadel, president of the Austrian Ski Federation; and former Austrian legends Egon Zimmerman, Olympic downhill champion at the Games in Innsbruck 1964; Karl Schranz, giant slalom silver medalist in 1964; and Leonard Stock, downhill gold medalist at Lake Placid in 1980, among others.

International Federation presidents including Marius Vizer, president of SportAccord and the International Judo Federation, and Marisol Casado, president of the International Triathlon Union, will also be present.

To honor their achievements, journalists will be presented with a commemorative Sochi 2014 award and certificate.

The event will begin at 10:30, with the official program starting at 11:00. Austria Tirol House is located in the Mountain Cluster of Krasnaya Polyana, and will take approximately an hour to reach from the Coastal Cluster.

Following the success of London 2012, where they were one of the most popular and frequented national hospitality houses, Austria Tirol House is once more bringing the charm of the Alps to Sochi. Their spacious and elegant space, which resembles a cozy ski lodge with open fireplaces and wooden paneling, features the best of Tirolean hospitality for Olympic athletes, officials, and fans alike to relax and enjoy during the Games.

How to get to Austria House

From the MPC:

1. Take the train from Olympic Village station (the one closest to the MPC) and ride it one stop to Olympic Park (the end of the line).

This train runs every ten minutes. It is suggested to take the 9:13 or 9:23 train at the latest.

2. At Olympic Park, transfer to the R4 train going to Krasnaya Polyana. Get off at the very last stop -- Krasnaya Polyana train station.

This train runs ONCE an hour. Therefore it is imperative to take the 9:38 train to make our event on time.

From elsewhere:

1. Get to Olympic Park train station -- there are numerous bus and train lines that run here, or it is possible to walk there from the Olympic Park.

- Take the train R4, as described above. Once again, you must take the train by 9:38 to make our event.

- Take the bus B11, which runs every 15 minutes. It is recommended to take the 9:06, 9:21, or 9:36 bus at the latest.

Austria Tirol House is located directly next to both Krasnaya Polyana train station and the bus hub. The Austria Tirol House sign should be easily seen from both.

However, in case it is not clearly visible:

From the train station exit, keep left to go towards the street, past the security gates. Turn right, walk 50m and you'll see the entrance for Austria Tirol House on the right.

From the bus stop, walk towards the "Krasnaya Polyana" train station sign, but keep to the left on the sidewalk (do not enter the security checkpoint). Austria Tirol House will be straight ahead, entrance on the right.
