CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY (April 26) – The International Olympic Committee announced this week that United World Wrestling president Nenad Lalovic has accepted an appointment to serve as a member of the IOC’s commission for Olympic Solidarity.
The commission for Olympic Solidarity acts to “organize assistance to all the National Olympic Committees, particularly those with the greatest needs, through multi-faceted programs prioritizing athlete development, training of coaches and sports administrators, and promoting the Olympic values.”
Lalovic is the first for a president of the international wrestling federation to serve in this role.
“Olympic Solidarity is a vital part of the Olympic movement,” said Lalovic. “I look forward to working with my partners on the commission to provide access to sport for millions of athletes around the world. Part of our mission at the IOC is to build sport for those in need and through programs motivated by Agenda 2020 I know we can continue that improvement.”
Lalovic will begin work with the commission immediately.
