IOC President Thomas Bach marks successful first year in office
On this day one year ago, Thomas Bach was elected as the ninth President of the International Olympic Committee, at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires.
Since then, we have had successful Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing. The President has fostered closer links with the United Nations and met more than 80 Heads of State and Government in that time. He is leading the Olympic Agenda 2020 reform process to develop a roadmap for the future of the entire Olympic Movement.
