Riyadh, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, President of the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee (SAOC), offered his congratulations and best wishes to Dr. Thomas Bach on his re-election as president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Prince Abdulaziz praised the IOC president’s successful journey and extensive efforts aimed at developing the Olympic sector in all aspects by supporting the work of the National Committees in general and Saudi Arabia in particular over the past years of his tenure through his constant visits and meetings with the SAOC officials and his close supervision of the projects that the committee has been working on.
It is noteworthy that Bach assumed the leadership of the IOC in 2013 for an eight-year term, which ended in 2021. However, the International Olympic regulations allow the president to run for a second four-year term.
