DOSB Now Looking For New President After Thomas Bach Elected IOC Boss
Published September 11, 2013
OFF TO LAUSANNE: Bach, on the other hand, "will together with his wife Claudia move to Lausanne, Switzerland, where the IOC headquarters are located." He "will resign from all his positions, except as board exec of wood processing machine manufacturer Weinig AG," which he said that the IOC ethics commission "allowed him to keep." As IOC president, Bach "will receive expenses and a daily rate -- the amount is unknown" (SPORTSCHAU, 9/10). The DOSB Committee congratulated Bach on his election and said in a statement, "The committee of the DOSB congratulates Thomas Bach on his election as ninth IOC president. With the election, the members of the IOC have honored his long-term work in sports, among others as IOC vice president, chairman of numerous commissions and DOSB president. His decisive win also strengthens German sports" (DOSB).
