IOC President Thomas Bach concluded at 47th EOC General Assembly that sport is an anchor of stability in the world and those working in the Olympic Movement have a responsibility to uphold this.
“You in Europe have a great opportunity to show this next year with your European Games, European Youth Olympic Festivals, and the Games of the Small States of Europe,” the IOC President said. “It is a unique opportunity to present all European citizens with the future of sport, the next generation of athletes, and new ways to experience sport in modern times.”
The 48th EOC General Assembly will be held in Warsaw from 25-26 October 2019 following a presentation by the Polish NOC and approval of the General Assembly. The meeting will coincide with the Polish NOC’s centenary celebrations.
EOC President Janez Kocijančič brought the General Assembly to a close by thanking the Spanish National Olympic Committee and all the volunteers for their hard work and dedication in delivering an excellent event.
