ANOC to gather input from the NOCs for Olympic Agenda 2020

MARISSA FLANDERS / Sports Features Communications

(SFC) The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has been backed by the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) for collecting contributions to the Olympic Agenda 2020. This was with a letter from the President of the ANOC Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al-Sabah, which urged all the 204 National Olympic Committees (NOC) to submit their “visions and ideas for the future of the Olympic Movement.” Before April 15, 2014 The ANOC will then combine and present to them to the IOC.

The ANOC President emphasized in the letter sent to the NOCs, Thomas Bach IOC President’s messaged last week. It requested for the NOCs to supplement the debate on the “five clusters of ideas,” which began at the 126th IOC Session held in Sochi last month. ANOC requested that the NOCs include them in any communications they had with the IOC, which would allow the Association to collect all their input and allot for a single condensed document to be sent to the IOC.

“ANOC and all the NOCs are united behind Olympic Agenda 2020 and fully support President Bach’s commitment to making the process as collaborative as possible. The IOC Session in Sochi was highly constructive and now it is the NOCs’ turn to add to the debate,” Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al-Sabah stated.

He went on to say, “It is critical that all the NOCs – large and small – contribute to guarantee that their interests and those of their athletes are well represented.  The Olympic Agenda 2020 will shape the future development of the Olympic Movement and so we want to ensure that the collective voice of the NOCs is well heard.”
