Int'l Olympic Committee President Rogge To Leave IOC With Stability, Strong Revenue
Published September 4, 2013
LASTING LEGACY: The AFP reported "his brainchild the Youth Olympic Games has been created, rugby and golf have been voted back into the games (for 2016) and women's boxing was one of the standout successes at what was also considered one of the best games of all time in London." Rogge: "The Olympic Games under my presidency has been very well organized, the Youth Olympic Games has been a very great success. I have fought against doping and illegal betting and I will leave with the financial revenue in a very strong state. This (money) is not a good thing necessarily and not the essence of what we are about, but without money you cannot cook" (AFP, 9/3).
