Major decisions set for IOC Session in Buenos Aires


September promises to be an important month in the history of the Olympic Movement, with three key decisions scheduled to be made during the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, over the next few days, the official website of the Olympic Movement, olympic.org. reports
The full International Olympic Committee  IOC membership is set to elect the host city for the 2020 Olympic Games on 7 September, decide on the composition of the 2020 Olympic programme the following day, and elect the next IOC President on 10 September.
President Jacques Rogge  will retire after 12 years in office and IOC members meeting in Buenos Aires will elect Rogge’s successor among six candidates by secret ballot Sept. 10. The six presidential candidates are Thomas Bach, Sergey Bubka, Richard Carrion, Ser Miang Ng, Denis Oswald, and Ching-Kuo Wu
The new president will face tough issues, including the backlash over anti-gay legislation in Russia before February’s Winter Games in Sochi and concern over construction delays in Rio, ABC News comments. Rogge was elected the IOC’s eighth president in Moscow in 2001, succeeding Juan Antonio Samaranch, a Spaniard who ran the committee with an authoritarian style for 21 years.
On 7 September, the three Candidate Cities bidding to host the 2020 Olympic Games – Istanbul, Tokyo and Madrid – will deliver their final presentations to the Session before the vote. The host city will be announced during a ceremony on the same day. The composition of the 2020 Olympic programme will be discussed on the morning of 8 September, with a possible inclusion of an additional sport. Baseball/softball, squash and wrestling have been shortlisted and proposed by the IOC Executive Board for possible inclusion as an additional sport on the 2020 Olympic programme.
On 8 September, the Session will hear reports about the preparations for future editions of the Olympic Games and Youth Olympic Games. The Organising Committees and respective IOC Coordination Commission Chairs for Sochi 2014, Rio 2016, PyeongChang 2018 and for the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing 2014 and in Lillehammer 2016 will update the IOC members about the ongoing work and progress made in the host cities.
On 9 September, the IOC Session will receive reports from IOC commissions, the IOC administration, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).September promises to be an important month in the history of the Olympic Movement, with three key decisions scheduled to be made during the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, over the next few days, the official website of the Olympic Movement, olympic.org. reports
