The Gwangju 2015 Organising Committee are conducting on-site inspections of all 70 competition venues ahead of the Summer Universiade ©Gwangju 2015On-site inspections of all 70 venues for next year's Summer Universiade have begun in the South Korean city of Gwangju.

Gwangju 2015 visited the World Cup Stadium, home to both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, yesterday as inspections began for all the competition venues set to be used at the Games.

The inspections see Gwangju 2015 secretary general Kim Yoon-suk, along with other staff and officials for each sporting facility, analyse the ongoing preparations in order to ensure the smooth operation of each venue come the start of the event.

These inspections will continue to take place until the end of the year.

Results seen at this year's Asian Games in Incheon will be used as a main reflection tool to determine the readiness of specific operational plans, including human resources, supplies, facilities, security, protocol and awards.

During the inspections, the Organising Committee plans to thoroughly prepare according to the needs of each competition by identifying the problematic issues in each field and conducting on-site discussions for resolutions between experts and staff.

Gwangju 2015 will then convert the organisation into an on-venue system in January 2015, while volunteers and working staff get set to expand in multiple stages.
