NOCK boss Paul Tergat has landed an IOC committee appointment

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 7 – National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) president Paul Tergat has been appointed as Member to the IOC newly created Future Host Commissions (Summer and Winter) for future Olympic Games.

The Commissions will advise and provide recommendations to the IOC Executive Board (EB) in regard to future hosts for Olympic Games and Youth Olympic Games (Summer and Winter).

Tergat who is also an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Member, will serve under the Commission chaired by Kristin Kloster Aasen of Norway as a representative of National Olympic Committees (NOCs) in the broad-based Commission.

The Commissions were formed following the IOC Session decision for a more targeted, streamlined and flexible approach, in which flexibility applies to the elections of Future Games Host.

Through the approach, permanent dialogues will be held with interested hosts, or with potential hosts where the IOC may want to create interest. The Commission will have the mission to promote, monitor and oversee this interest from them and report to the IOC EB.

The IOC President, Thomas Bach, while congratulating Tergat on his appointment noted, “There will be a two-speed progression for the work of the Commissions. The Winter Commissions will start immediately, as the priority at this moment is the discussions about the Winter Youth Olympic Games 2024 and the Olympic Winter Games 2030.”

Tergat became an independent IOC member at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires in September 2013. He is also currently a member of the IOC Coordination for the Youth Olympic Games Dakar 2022, among other Commissions.
