(SFC) International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach appointed Jordan Olympic Committee President and IOC member HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein to five IOC commissions for the remainder of the year Thursday.

HRH Prince Feisal will offer his advice and assistance in the areas of International Relations, TV Rights and New Media, Women and Sport, Sport Environment, and International Olympic Truce Foundation.

“It is a privilege to continue playing a part in the Olympic Movement’s commitment to universality,” HRH Prince Feisal said. “At the IOC, we have a vision for sport to play a part in the lives of all Jordanians. For this to happen, it is important that the Olympic values continue to resonate around the world through the promotion of the Olympic spirit.”

HRH Prince Feisal’s work in promoting sport as a peace and development tool across Asia is furthered as a member of the Olympic Council of Asia Executive Board and OCA’s Peace Through Sport Committee chairman.
