Executive Transactions

IOC Finance Committee Chair RICHARD CARRION has "resigned from his key roles in the Olympic body following his failed bid" for the presidency, won by THOMAS BACH last month. Carrion, who remains a regular IOC member, also resigned as "negotiator of television rights deals outside Europe, but has agreed to remain in that role" through the Sochi Games. Bach asked Singapore’s NG SER MIANG to "chair the next meeting of the finance commission in December." Sweden's ARNE LJUNGQVIST and Norway's GERHARD HEIBERG are to stay on as chairs of the Medical and Marketing commissions, respectively, through the Sochi Games. Meanwhile, the IOC announced that JOHN COATES will head the Coordination Commission for the '20 Tokyo Games (AP, 10/16).
