IOC announces composition of Tokyo 2020 and Buenos Aires 2018 Coordination Commissions

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach has appointed IOC Vice-President John Coates as Chairman of the Coordination Commission for the Games of the XXXII Olympiad ­- Tokyo 2020; and Frank Fredericks as Chairman of the Coordination Commission for the 3rd Summer Youth Olympic Games - Buenos Aires 2018. 

Coates and Fredericks will lead two experienced teams of commission members, also named today, who will be responsible for assisting their respective local Organising Committees as they prepare for their editions of the Games. The members of the Coordination Commissions represent the stakeholders of the Olympic Movement, including the athletes, the National Olympic Committees, International Sports Federations, and the International Paralympic Committee, and act as a link between them, the Organising Committees and other Olympic Movement stakeholders, thereby ensuring the coordination necessary to help deliver successful editions of the Games.

President Bach also decided that Arne Ljungqvist, Gerhard Heiberg and Hein Verbruggen will continue in their roles as chairmen of the Medical Commission, Marketing Commission and OBS, respectively, until after the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games to ensure continuity in the preparations. The terms of all three had been set to expire after the IOC Session in Buenos Aires.

Following Richard Carrión's decision to resign from his different positions within the IOC, the President and he agreed that in order to assist in this transition process, Mr Carrión would continue to lead the TV negotiations already under way outside Europe until the Sochi 2014 Games. President Bach asked IOC member Ser Miang Ng to chair the next meeting of the Finance Commission in December.
