UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Marius Vizer is set to stay at the helm of SportAccord as he remains unchallenged for the Presidential position he currently occupies ahead of the elections next month.

The deadline for candidate nominations passed on Saturday (March 21) with no-one coming forward.

As a result, Vizer, who is also the President of the International Judo Federation, will be re-elected for a four-year term in office at the SportAccord General Assembly in Sochi on April 20 during the SportAccord Convention.

"I would like to thank the member international federations for their confidence and trust in me," he said.

"Come the General Assembly, I am looking forward to presenting the current status of projects that have been developed in the last two years and the plan for the next period.

"At the same time, all members of SportAccord can be sure that I will be dedicating time and energy to further uniting and empowering the international federation family as a top priority."

Vizer was elected as the new President of SportAccord for a two-year term during the SportAccord Convention in May 2013 St Petersburg.

He polled 52 votes to his only rival Bernard Lapasset's 37 to replace Hein Verbruggen, the controversial Dutchman who had served as SportAccord President since 2004.

Vizer's election marked a new era for the umbrella organisation for all Olympic and non-Olympic international sports federations, as well as organisers of multi-sports games and sport-related international associations.

Among the items on his agenda was a new united World Championships for all SportAccord's members to be held in the same country every four years - a concept he had hoped to launch as early as 2017.

He insisted, however, that he did not want his Championships to be a rival to the Olympics.

Vizer again highlighted the potential for "joint cross-sport projects" in a statement released today.

"The work and the power of the international sports federations must be recognised," he explained.

"Being united under the umbrella of SportAccord not only protects the world of sport from monopolies, but also empowers it with the possibility to share and add value, in terms of exposure and finance, with joint cross-sport projects."
