United World Wrestling president Nenad LALOVIC was re-elected to the International Olympic Committee Executive Board (EB) for an additional four-year term. The IOC Session confirmed his election this morning in Beijing.
He will continue to represent the Association of Summer Olympic Federation (ASOIF) on the IOC EB.
Lalovic remains the first EB member from the sport of wrestling.
“To be re-elected as a member of the IOC Executive Committee is the ultimate honor and I thank all IOC members for their continued support,” said Lalovic. “I remain humbled to be a part of the EB and resume my desire to contribute to its mission and goals.”
Recently re-elected as United World Wrestling president, 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 IOC member in August of 2015. He currently also serves on the WADA Executive Committee and Foundation Board and GAISF Council.
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.
