Wrestling's Lalovic to Join IOC Executive Board
CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY (February 7) – United World Wrestling president Nenad Lalovic has been elected to the IOC Executive Board (EB) as representative for the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF), following a recent vote by the 28 Summer International Federations. The IOC Session confirmed the vote this morning in Pyeongchang.

Lalovic will become the first EB member from the sport of wrestling.

A businessman from Belgrade, the 59-year-old Lalovic has overseen several dramatic and popular changes to one of the Olympic Games’ oldest sports. Lalovic was named the president of United World Wrestling in February 2013 and appointed as a full member of the IOC in August of 2015.

"The Executive Board has tremendous responsibility to assist the Olympic movement," said Lalovic. “I'm humbled to be a member of the board and contribute to its many missions and goals. I take pride in this position as representing all Summer Sports on the EB and will be a strong advocate for all of them.”

The EB consists of the IOC President, four Vice-Presidents and ten other members. Among its many concerns the EB assumes the overall responsibility for the administration of the IOC, approves the IOC's internal organization and is responsible for the management of the IOC's finances and prepares an annual report. The EB also conducts the procedure for acceptance and selection of candidatures for the organization of the Olympic Games and establishes the agenda for the IOC Sessions.
