IOC Today Holding Presidential Vote To Elect Rogge's Successor
Published September 10, 2013
Bach has long been seen as a frontrunner, and many Olympic observers have him pegged to win a majority of votes in the first or second round of voting. But that has not stopped the other candidates from lobbying. Bubka took a group of IOC members out to dinner on Monday night and Oswald and Carrion dined together over the weekend. The election has shaped up very differently from the last one in '01, when outgoing President Juan Antonio Samaranch was considered to favor Rogge as his successor. IOC members say Rogge has stayed out of this election.
