All media are welcome. Please pre-register here to receive a dedicated dial-in number, a passcode and a personal pin for quicker and easier access to the conference call. 

Because of the expected high volume of callers, we strongly recommend that you connect to the call at least 15 minutes in advance.

Should the time/date not be convenient for you, we will upload the audio file of the teleconference onto this page, and it will be available one hour afterwards.

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, which means that every day the equivalent of 3.4 million US dollars goes to help athletes and sports organisations at all levels around the world.
