New sports director
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has the pleasure to announce the appointment of Mr Kelly Fairweather to the position of Sports Director.
Fairweather's strong background in sport, allied to four years of experience working at the IOC, provided the springboard for his promotion to this new role, a position created following the IOC audits launched by President Rogge upon his election. Fairweather will be responsible for the IOC's relationships with the 35 International Olympic Sports Federations, the 28 IOC-Recognised International Federations and all major organisations in the world of sport. This appointment completes the restructuring of the Management Team, coming after the appointments of Gilbert Felli as Olympic Games Executive Director in February; Urs Lacotte as Director General and Philippe Blanchard as Director of Information Management in June; and Francis Gabet as Olympic Museum Director earlier this month.
