HRH Prince Nawaf Faisal Fahd Abdulaziz stands down as IOC member

11/07/2014

HRH Prince Nawaf Faisal Fahd Abdulaziz has resigned from his position as President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee (NOC).

As his membership of the IOC was linked to his function as President of the NOC, it therefore ceased at the same time.

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach thanked His Royal Highness for his contribution to the Olympic Movement.

The International Olympic Committee is a not-for-profit independent international organisation made up of volunteers, which is committed to building a better world through sport. It redistributes more than 90 per cent of its income to the wider sporting movement, helping athletes and sports organisations at all levels around the world.
