International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach led a moment of reflection at the Winter Olympics in Sochi to mark the fourth anniversary of the death of Nodar Kumaritashvili.
The Georgian luge racer suffered a fatal crash during a training run at Whistler ahead of the 2010 Games in Vancouver, dying at the age of 21 on the day of the opening ceremony.
IOC communications director Mark Adams outlined plans to remember Kumaritashvili in his Wednesday morning briefing in Sochi.
He said: "There are a number of things going on. The International Luge Federation (FIL) are in touch with his family and we have been working with them on a lasting memorial in Georgia.
"Today, specifically, I know that, along with the Luge Federation, we are laying some flowers in tribute at the track in Whistler and I also know that the president took part in a moment of reflection with the FIL at a meeting this morning.
"It is one thing clearly that will remain with all of us of who were there and obviously with his family.
"That is an ongoing thing, it doesn't finish today, or indeed, in four years' time because we will continue to work with the family on a really good lasting tribute to his memory."
