TAMPA/ANNECY, Jun 21: has learned that Olympian skier Edgar Grospiron, former head of the Annecy 2018 bid, will be coming to Durban for the IOC session and the final vote.

Grospiron left the Annecy bid in December of last year citing his concerns over the budget, however the bid has always sustained that he continued backing as an athlete supporter for the bid plan.

The Annecy bid team confirmed today that he will be in Durban as an athlete ambassador and not in any official role.
